Challenging holes but fair

Course was in good shape. Fairways was wet due to all the rain. But that was not the golf course fault. Looking forward to going back.

Greens were being sanded.

I understand they (the Greens) have to be sanded, but the biggest problem was the flags were removed. You had no idea where to chip or pitch.
I've played this course several time and would recommend it in the summer when conditions of the course is in tip top shape.

First Time Playing

Early Spring Golf

Early Spring golf in KY. Greens were newly aerated and sandy, made putting slow and difficult . The greens would normally be fast. Fairways and tee boxes were brown and dormant.

Course has a great layout. You can see how fast greens can make some of the holes very challenging, depending on pin placement. I can’t wait to play this course again in a few weeks.

Nice Pro Shop and Clubhouse. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Bad Pro Shop Attendant

Like the course and the conditions of Lincoln Trail. Never a let down to go and play there. Also the pace of play was good considering it was a weekend morning. My only complaint was that the staff seemed bothered that we had booked via golf now and gotten the tee time at a discount. The gentleman said “you shouldn’t be playing for that cheap” and tried to charge more until I showed him the voucher I had from golf now. Not the best start to our morning but we had a good time and I am sure will be back since my entire group live locally. Hopefully the staff read this and realize that the consumer shouldn’t feel bad for finding a deal or utilizing a service in golf now that they pay for to provide them discounts.

Greens are good, the rough is a killer as it is thick and needs to be cut down, you can lose a ball just off the fairway as I did today.
