I am not someone who usually gives a 1 star review, but I felt that Lincoln Hills Golf Course definitely earned its 1 star. I have been golfing in the Sacramento area for many years, and have in the past enjoyed thoroughly playing at Lincoln Hills Golf Course. Unfortunately after the round my friend and I played on Friday the 13th of September we will never be back. What started out as a normal day ended up being the worst day of golf, thanks to the complete breakdown of customer service and down right human politeness by "Mac" in the pro shop, and Sean Silva the apparent "General Manager". As my friend and I approached the green on the 6th hole, on the Orchard course our golf cart came to a screeching halt going up hill, almost throwing us over the dash board. We thought the battery may have died, but everything was still on we just werent moving. It is no secret that things happen with golf carts when you are golfing all the time, so we decided to use the on board GPS to call for help, and we also decided to make a call to the pro shop just to be safe. After about 9 separate attempts to get someone to answer the phone (they were not that busy) we finally got an answer at 3:17pm. A gentleman by the name of "Mac" said he would send someone right out (remember we are only on the 6th hole) so it is not that far. At 3:30pm, we were still sitting in the sun on the 6th hole (it was over 100 out) so I called back, and again spoke to "Mac" who told me and I quote "they are on their way over the hill"! It is now 3:39pm, and we are still sitting on the 6th hole. at this point we have already been passed by other golfers and we are hot and sweaty. So I called again and this time played with the automated system to get the GM "Sean Silva" on the phone, I was grateful that maybe someone in charge could help! That was a mistake, all he had to say was he heard the conversation with "Mac" and like he told me before they are on their way. I of course had to ask why has it been (22) minutes? All he said was sorry, it takes a while to get out their. Really?? To drive a cart 6 holes? I can walk 6 holes a lot faster than 22 minutes. From this point, I decided to just stop calling. So we sat and waited another 15 minutes and finally decided to pack everything up and start walking. It was now 3:54pm. and it was still blazing hot out! When we arrived at the 7th hole, low and behold that cart guy pulled up and was like "does someone need a cart?" Really? No, not at all! When I asked the cart guy what had happened, he said and I again quote "I literally just got the call" Are you kidding?? This golf course has got some serious issues. To charge us $59.00 each and treat us like we just dont matter is a serious breakdown of just plain old human kindness, I even after all of this was nothing but polite to the people that finally came, because it is the right thing to do. Thats all.
My wife and I, together with another couple played in the Cupid’s Cup this past Saturday. Even though the tournament had all the makings of a fun time, I wanted to let you know that we were all disappointed at the events lack of organization. When the alternate shot round ended, we couldn’t find anyone around the pro shop who could tell us about the scoring results or if there were any awards based on the participants performance. We ended up leaving and concluded that it is doubtful that we will ever play in another promoted tournament at Lincoln Hills.
The Pro Jason helped me secure a tee time when I could not use the play coupon that I was issued with a charity golf tournament I played in. He was so helpful in accommodating the problems I had with not being able to play Monday- Thursday, and for an upgraded fee was able to allow me to play and experience Lincoln Hills Golf Course. This is a great promotion to allow players to fall in love with the course; and with the great service of the staff, and restaurant, it is an easy course to fall in love with.
I like this pretty course. I like playing orchard side more than hills side because orchard side seems a bit more playable/par-able. It is fair golf, quite playable holes, par 5s reachable with 2 good shots, not too many trees to get boxed in by, pretty wide fairways, not unreasonably hard to make pars like some courses. Unlike some courses which are demoralizing when you are struggling just to make bogies.

Really enjoyed this course early on a Thursday morning. I shot one of my best rounds in a long time, from the white tees. Its pretty forgiving- not much treacherous terrain. Its a long, stretched out course. Not for walking, really. Highly recommend.
Very nice private but open to public course. With two eighteen hole courses. Reasonable weekend afternoon rate and my twelve year old son played for free with my green fee of 25$ with cart. Great way to introduce your kids to the game of golf.
We played the Hills course last Sunday. This side is fairly open without a lot of trees but still challenging. The par 3s are definitely longer than many courses. At least 2 of them were 170 yards or longer. The course was in great shape!
Two 18 hole courses. 9 holes not available. Can not be walked. Hills course is not as challenging, but beautiful. Orchard course is very very challenging and and not as scenic.
The course was fun. The staff was friendly and accommodating for a golf tournament we held here. I would recommend it for your tournament as well.
Beautiful hills, well kept course, with ponds and fountains. Truly a pretty place to play.
My husband and his buddies play there every week and love the course.
Great Course for everyone. Reasonable price. Great specials.
