I've been playing here for multiple years but will never come back. When we got to the course there was a log jam at the first tee so we tried going off on the 10th. There was no one on the 10th tee or even in sight on the back nine. We were getting ready to tee off when a very rude lady came running at us. She said that we couldn't start on the back nine and had to tee off on the first. We were frustrated with this but complied without a problem. We were moving pretty quick for the first 4-5 holes but then it got really slow out of nowhere. We found out that they let a 13some (yes, thirteen people all playing) and a separate group of 6 play together. This was holding up the entire course. We ended up meeting the two groups ahead and behind us because of the time between swings. We had multiple minutes between shots. It was extremely frustrating, but the most frustrating part was not being able to tee off on the 10th at the beginning. That would've opened up the flow of the course. I would highly advise against golfing here. There are many course in the area that are in much better shape and run by respectable individuals.

He would not play this course again.

Simply put Longwood is in very rough shape but playable. Very dry and rock hard in all areas right now. Tee boxes haven't been moved in at least a week (or two) and several of the flag positions haven't been moved either. Traps are essentially hard pan/dirt/rocks. Maintained "just enough" our group found the greens to be pretty sketchy/bumpy and slower than most tracks in the area. Conditions similar to a Chicago Park District course. The folks are friendly, they have a grass range, have new carts this year and it's a golf course where you can practice your game....difficult to recommend the course to others however if you want to play an old school course in rough condition it is a fun play and with the rock hard conditions you need to pay attention to getting your ball on line and not short siding yourself. Course is part of the GolfVisions courses so we play it once a year with our GolfVisions players pass.

He would not play this course again.

I haven't shot Longwood in about 3 years. Partly because of course conditions and rotating ownership (non-ownership).
My friend golfed it the week before and said it was in good condition. Let me say this is the best condition the course has been in at least 6 years.
Green are in super condition. Fairways are perfect.
I wish the rough was cut a little closer, but don't we all?
Looks like previous drainage issues on #4(?), are under control. What use to be mud, is now playable fairway grass.
Will definitely play this course again. Just cut the rough 2 inches shorter!
