TERRIBLE CONDITION OF GREENS AND FAIRWAYS..!!

Have played this course one or two times per year over past few years and at its best is in OK condition. However, like so many other public courses they are not keeping up with the most basic conditioning .... probably because they either are not getting enough play to make the revenue it takes to actually keep a course in even just OK condition. NO REASON TO COME BACK TO THIS COURSE WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY OTHERS THAT ACTUALLY KNOW HOW TO GIVE YOU A DECENT COURSE TO ENJOY FOR YOUR MONEY....!!!

Haven"t played course for quite sometime. I was very disappointed to find the course needs major tender loving care. Maintenance of the course was poor.' greens were in poor shape, cups were frayed need to be moved. Difficult to tell fairways from the rough.

Just want to say thank you to the grounds crew who took the initiative this morning to whip all of the greens that were heavily covered with dew. We had just started our round when the staffer came by with the cart and hose to begin whipping the greens. We hope that this continues through the end of the season and will become a part of the regular morning startup at the course. We appreciate the effort this morning.

The course has a lot of potential, some interesting holes, but it is not well maintained. The rough is mostly tree roots and dirt. Drainage is terrible, lots of standing water. The practice green was flooded. Many of the greens were soggy. I plugged a couple balls in and around the green. A hackers course. For the money you can play many nicer courses, skip this one.

I posted a previous review on 6/29/17. Never saw a response. Two minor issues. The small red flags on the hole flags are mostly missing. Please replace them. The flags themselves are in terrible shape. Look like dish rags. Please get new ones. Finally, can we get the greens mowed earlier in the morning, BEFORE you start mowing the TEES!!

As they say, first impressions are important. If there is time to put up new fencing, there should be time to improve the look of the Greens, flags, and red flags.

Horrible service........check your debit/credit card when booking through Golf Now......they will not honor the price when you get there and then they will tell you it's your problem. Crabgrass growing on greens, bunkers were GROSS and course on general is a 4 out of 5. I would not recommend to anyone. Acushnet River Valley or Poquoy Brook hands down for the same price. Will never go back. Just a bad experience.

Book on Golf Now for 30.00 walking. Charged 4.00 processing fee. Get to the course and charged 47.00. 51 dollars for a round that was 30.00 at 6am. Called to say I was over charged and was told pretty much, it's my problem. That being said, watch out twit this club when booking online. They advertise and charge a different price. Plus I would have never paid 47 walking for this couse. Crabgrass on greens, bunkers aren't edged.....horrible....spend your money at Acushnet River Valley

Hot deal $12 for 18 with cart. That's the only way I would play LCC. The course is in rough shape. Greens are not good. Typical price is close to $50 which is not worth it. The staff is investing in the bar and restaurant not the course. They don't have a pro at the course..

I reserved my tee time here on golfnow for 27 per person plus a cart for 9 holes. When I arrived, the pro shop attempted to charge me 39 a person. After much deliberation they decided that for "this one time only' they would honor the golfnow.com price. It was not pleasant to haggle with the starter in the 'proshop' which is really just one end of the bar.

Great round at Lakeville a very nice layout for the money. We arrived an hour early for our 1pm tee time and we were sent right out! So nice to jump out early with no wait. Greens were good tho a little slow. Courteous staff all around made for a nice day. Always love the finish with two Island green par 3s back to back. Nice mix of difficult par 4s and interesting short par 4s as well. Bring a few extra balls as water comes into play on several holes. GPS can be very helpful if you have access.

I live 3 mikes away. Since change of ownership no up grades to condition of course. Lots of clover little grass. Hard pack ground. Tees very poor little grad replacement. Never saw a grounds person and the grass needed mowing and looks like it wasn't down for weeks. I don't think you should spend 15 minutes looking for a ball just outside the fairway.

Very bad. Never again. 2 players on Monday 100$

Course conditions are improving weekly. Keep up the good work. Greens are excellent. However, it would help to replace some of the missing small red flags on the hole flags. Deep greens need these for better play.

Also, during the last to years the hole cups had white metal liners in them. How come you are not using them this year. Helps to preserve the condition of the cups.

My large group plays here weekly here an enjoy this course. Your clubhouse staff is very friendly.

Fairways and rough NEED TO BE MOWED!!! It was difficult to locate the ball even in the middle of the fairway. I have been playing this course many times over the past three years and have never seen the grass this long!!

Greens however were in EXCELLENT Condition.
