so used to Lochmere being in really good shape that seeing the fairways in kinda rough shape was a shock. Even brought a friend out who had never played there and was a bit embarrassed at the conditions.

This is a good course for the beginner or the advanced player. I always enjoy playing at Lochmere. I will warn that if it has rained within the couple of day before your round the course grounds get very wet and take a while to dry out!

This place is dreadful. Fairways are barren, not brown grass, no grass. Tee boxes full of weeds, no water cups, no tees on cart, no bag people. Slow, slow, slow. Do not play. Can’t believe this is a Club Corp facility. Literally worst course I have ever played.

If you would have asked me about Lochmere 2 years ago, I would have said that you MUST play there and it's a great public course. I played the course last night for the first time in about two years and I can tell you that I do not think I'll be back anytime soon.

I experienced friendly service, but that's a given. What I also did experience were poor course conditions. The fairways were basically dirt and mud. A golfer would have more luck hitting it out of the rough. Course was brown, brown, brown. When I played it the last time I don't remember it being like that. For spending that kind of money on a week day I'd expect much better conditions.

Course is obviously suffering from a lack of rains/watering but to hit fairways and still be playing off of a sand or hard mud surface was a little frustrating.

Play pace was slow - don’t think this was VFM

No group in the immediate hole behind us (4 in my group) and definitely none ahead of us but still We were Made to skip the 14th. No other group was behind or ahead of us after the round. We finished in about 4hrs and 15 minutes.

Great Course. 2.75 for a Cup of Warm Coffee is Unsat. I bought Me and my golfing partner a large bucket of balls to warm up on range. Balls cost me 24 dollars for 2 buckets! I feel this is unsat! If I came just to hit balls and practice that's okay. But if I came to play on the course I would say 6 bucks for a large bucket is cool. A lot of courses give you a small bucket because you choose to come and play their course and they know you had other options/choices. Nice Course and one more thing....Course is played a lot and a lot of spots on fairways are hard packed soil due to carts being used on fairways. This course does not drain very well.

Lochmere for $13, one could play 18 with a cart. The greens were good but there was very little grass to hit off from, mostly dirt but for the money it was a fun experience.
