Hopefully they respect reviews

Great course. Would love to see more visible yardage markers . It would be nice if driving range was open before noon as well. We liked the multiple t box choices. Pace of play was slow however, we would play again and again and again.

Very good condition

Tee boxes and fairways are lush and the greens are rolling well. A few wet spots here and there. The course is in much better shape than last year.

The pace was great on a Friday morning . Our foursome finished in four hours.

Slow

Great course for the money, but they seriously need a Marshall. The pace of play is the slowest of any course in the area. You will be waiting 5 to 7 minutes for everyshot.

Rained out, but good 8 holes

A friend and I were paired with two other golfers who were better players. Thankfully they were patient. Course was crowded, but good pace of play. Well maintained. Greens recently sanded so a bit unpredictable.

There was a heavy thunderstorm that rained out our round. Unknown if the course would do a rain check for the nine we didn't play - it was raining so hard we went right to the car.

Great shape

Usually the course is wet and soaked and fought to get a five hit round in. Course has been well kept and no water today. Pace of play needs work but course is on excellent condition.

Pro shop- John

Before I was about to play today I called the pro shop and John picked up. The guy gave me a terrible attitude, probably should be fired immediately. John definitely lost the course about 50 bucks today. Have played lochmere before and it was great until I spoke to John. Way to go John!

Thanks for the warning, I cannot stand rude guys in the pro shop... biggest pet peeve of mine when I golf. I will definitely take my business elsewhere.

Best shape I've seen the course....maybe ever

This may be the best shape I've ever seen Lochmere in. The fairways were lush and dry despite a hard rainstorm two days ago (which is saying something for this low-lying course), and the greens were fast and true. Pace of play was good, and even though they asked as we were about to tee off, they didn't force our twosome to pair up with another twosome that came up as we were about to tee off at 4pm, which would have been tight finishing up. The only complaint I have was that the range was mats only which I loathe. Not sure why they were doing it that way.

Improved Conditions

First time I've played Lochmere this calendar year. There was a ton of rain the nite before (cart path only), but the course drained better than I remembered after other big rains. Greens had been top-dressed but rolled really well. The rough isn't that long but it is very dense! This is a fun layout, tho some think it's a bit monotonous....great deal if you can get an HD and play in under 4 hrs....which I did.

Great

Great day -- great fairways and greens. Nice when it is dry - not so after rain.
It was an enjoyable day.

Another Enjoyable Round

Lochmere is my go to course for midweek play. The folks there are always friendly and helpful. It was a hot and steamy afternoon with the high around 95 so it was sweltering, but the course was in good shape. The greens were in great shape given the hot conditions and I was impressed that the fairways weren't dust bowls. We got caught in a summer shower that poured rain for 30 minutes that will help keep the course green for the next few days. Always fun to play here and I will continue going back.

Awesome round -79

Haven’t played here for a few years ; usually very wet and miserable; creates slow play

The course layout is challenging especially from the tips but tee shots rolled and greens stuck.

Bunkers were not washed out
Greens - maybe 11-13 stimpmeter and it took the breaks you see and were responsive

The “ONLY” bad part is that the maintenance crew was all over the place while you were trying to hit- weed eaters running and mowers circling, dust flying and would not shut down when you were putting or teeing off - ran by younger kids for the summer.

Good shape, bad pace

I play Lochmere pretty regularly. It hasn’t rained in a while so the course is in good shape. Really crowded and slow today, though.
