Loved this course
Sep 2020
My partner and I enjoyed a fabulous round of golf here on a trip to the area. We are not members, but were still offered the flexibility of pairing or choosing not to (the pair slated to go with us showed up late so we went unpaired). The course was beautiful, greens were fantastic, and we played the best round of golf we've had in a while. It was an extra treat to have a ball and club cleaner on the cart, as those have been nonexistent during covid. And a staff member also cleaned our clubs at the turn as well. Incredible value for the price. We will be back!

Non-members not welcome
Sep 2020 • Couples
If you are not a member, don’t bother. They do not care about you. I was vacationing in Lexington and staying at the Marriott next door and booked tee times for 9/4, 9/6, and 9/8. Each day when I arrived to play and checked in at the pro shop, after loading my clubs on my car I was informed that the members that I was slated to play with did not want to play with “an outsider”.

I was informed that I could go out on the course as a single but there were many groups that were out in front of me and I could play two balls on a hole if I wanted.

Even during these times, each golfer takes there own cart and “social distancing” is the norm for golf anyway. I have been playing throughout the entire pandemic and have never encountered any course or player who had a problem playing with others.

I did go out on Friday but was stuck behind a three son and twosome that would not either let me join or play through.

When speaking with those in the pro shop, they did not care about the situation and said they did not want to upset the members and ruin their round by having the general public play with them.

Evidently at Griffin Gate, unless you are a member you are not worthy of playing with those who are and you are looked down as nothing more than common plebes.

Avoid this course at all cost and spend your green fees at a place that will appreciate your business.

Great Golfing Experience
Apr 2020
We had the opportunity to play the Griffin Gate course in April and had an exceptional experience. The staff is handling the COVID-19 issue very well. The course was in fantastic shape and the greens are close to Tour quality, especially when it comes to speed. I would highly recommend visiting this course and enjoy a wonderful golfing experience.

Beautiful greens
Jun 2019 • Solo
My husband loved the course. He could not believe for the price what a great course.

The greens were very well maintained!

Everyone was very accommodating getting my husband out as a single. They teamed him up with another couple.

Thank you for allowing us to stay with Griffin Gate Marriott with our Motorcoach!!

Outstanding Golf Course! A Must Play in Lexington Area
Sep 2018 • Friends
A very well maintained course that will challenge all golfers. Fast greens, beautiful views,and possibly frustration as you look back and think of what might have been! It is deceptive and very enjoyable to play.

Only complaint at was water is only on two holes. Makes it tough on a hot day.

unfriendly golf staff
Jul 2018 • Business
Not a good experience from check in to finishing up. Calling to get a tee time was a real hassle, first call was dropped, check in met an unfriendly face, no smile, no conversation, just took our money, took so long at beverage bar for service. Cart person was friendly enough but honesty is a question. He helped with bags and took cart. I left a gps in cart but it was not turned in to pro shop. Cart person was to clean cart for the night. Golf course was well maintained and enjoyable to play.

Father/Son golf - amazing experience
May 2018 • Family
The staff at Griffin Gate Golf Club welcomed my husband and son from the instant I called to set up their tee time. I shared that my 11 year old son collected bag tags and the gentleman offered to personalize his and asked my son's name! Upon arrival, they were greeted and bags loaded onto their cart! Friendly, smiling faces..the course was immaculate! Absolutely stunning course! Their experience was the best yet! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

First time visit
Jul 2017 • Couples
The two of us scheduled 18 holes at Griffin Gate and were pleased with the condition of the course and the pace of play. I don't recall ever having to wait nor being pushed. The greens were fantastic and the course was very well maintained, especially for a public course. The GPS app (free) was a definite shot and time saver. I'm certain we will be back.

Changes for the better
Mar 2017 • Friends
Many apparent changes - all for the better and all to assist the customer. The staff couldn't be more helpful, courteous and attentive. When I call for a tee time, the pro shop actually answers their own phones now, instead of being screened by the hotel operator as it was in the recent past. Remodeling just completed, the Player's Card is being offered again (a great buy!) and the course itself is in excellent shape and has clearly received the attention it needed. Already looking forward to playing again next week.

The course is average
Oct 2016
Six years ago I played this course and had a marvelous time as it was in great shape. The course is not in nearly as good of shape as it was then. It is still OK but it is just nothing like it was then.
