Lancaster Host Golf Resort
I knew that the course had gotten some poor reviews but I played here several times in the past during it's 'glory days'. What a shame to see what it has become. It has the bones of a very good course but has completely fallen into disrepair. You can see that much maintenance has been deferred.
The greens were just OK and the fairways were just acceptable. Get off the fairway and there was no way to find a ball! That being said, I have to say that for $20 which included cart it was a great deal. The folks at the clubhouse were very nice and accommodating. There was little play when I was there at mid-morning and what groups were out there let me right through as they had the misfortune to be off the fairway into the high grass (I mean ankle deep literally just off the fairway).
I wish them good luck in getting the course back to where it belongs ... it used to be the place to go in the Lancaster area.

What A Shame
This course used to be kept in such great shape and was always fun to play. I played on a Saturday at 11 am and I felt like I was the only one on the course. Now I know why. The front nine looked like it hadn't been mowed since the previous Monday, so if your ball wasn't on the fairway, you literally had to walk on it to find it. The bunkers are a disgrace -- very little sand and grass growing in them. We even took pictures to show our friends. I hope someone remedies the problems because I'm crossing this one off my list until the conditions drastically improve.
