Probably the worst greens (browns?) I have ever played. Some were hairy. Some were baked brown and shaved close. Some had bare sandy areas

The course conditions at Lions Paw left a lot to be desired. The cart paths were pretty much in disrepair throughout the course. The tees and fairways were decent but not great. The greens had bare spots and a lot of Poa clumps in them. We played a warmup round at Brunswick the day before, and it was in fantastic condition. So we were very disappointed that our more "premier" package course was so much worse than the less expensive Brunswick.
