Lincoln Country Club

Not sure what was wrong, but the greens were in terrible shape. Disease? Huge cracks in the soil and grass spotty. Not really suitable for putting. Fairways ok.

Absolutely horrible course.

This is the worst golf course ive ever played. Ground is rock hard, brown, and covered in weeds. Will never return.

Trash

I read bad reviews about this place prior to playing, but I held some optimism still. However, when playing, I quickly realized how right the reviews were. This course is absolute garbage. Its dry, cracked, dusty, overgrown, and just overall poor. It has so much potential to be an awesome course, but it is not well kept whatsoever. It is the worst course I have ever played and might be the worst in West Michigan.

Mega stinky course conditions

Half the greens were super dry, brown, and cracked. Made putting almost impossible. Some of the holes had portions sectioned off cuz they were previously flooded and were now unplayable. Had my nuts squashed 20 times cuz the whole course, cart paths included, was super bumpy. Needed a seat belt on the cart. Back 9 took twice as long as the front 9 cuz it was overbooked. Overall not a very enjoyable experience.

Unfriendly Service, Tee times before open

I booked a tee time with a link from their website and 8 am was the only time available. We showed up at 7:45 to make sure we had time to check in but no one was there and the building was locked. 2 people showed up at 8:05 and didn't acknowledge our group. When we entered to pay, I told them I had an 8 am tee time and they said they do not open until 9 so I tried explaining their website allows for tee times every 10 minutes from 8-9 and was offered no explanation or apology. I would understand if it were earlier in the year but I can imagine I'm the first person to inform them since it was August. I will not be returning.

Not worth it

The course itself was in terrible shape. Tee boxes are rock hard, weeds and dirt everywhere. It was only $30 for 18 holes, but I’ve played courses around that same money that were in much nicer shape. Simply not with the time or money.

Scared & Confused

I recently booked a tee time with Lincoln Country Club in Kent County for a 9 am tee time. When I arrived 15 minutes early - there was absolutely no one there. The parking lot was overgrown with weeds and appeared to be from a scary movie. In addition to that, I waited even 15 minutes PAST me tee time (9am) and still no one was there and all of the doors were locked.

I am very upset to have paid for a round of golf that I didn't even get to play. Is this course even open? How are they able to accept payments? Does their phone not work?
