I don't write reviews. 70+ rounds in 2019, visiting Lincoln for a wedding this past weekend and arranged golf w friends Friday 9/20. Deplorable conditions at Wilderness Ridge for USD70+ green fee w no advance warning despite multiple phone calls to pro shop prior to arrival. Signage in clubhouse indicated maintenance on executive course, but we found major construction on multiple holes on championship course including par-4 13th playing to a temporary green 160yds off the tee w a blind shot to a down/sidehill pin in aerated fairway (all fairways throughout course recently punched) that hadn't been mowed in a week. 14th hole similarly undergoing major construction with equipment impeding play in fairway. No less than six traverses through backyards, this is more of a housing development than a golf course. When questioned post-round, pro shop staff "unaware" that "maintenance" was taking place on championship course, refused to accept course undergoing construction. Perhaps this may have been viewed as good golf 30yrs ago in Nebraska, but strongly suggest looking elsewhere to play if visiting Lincoln. It appears ownership is milking as much as possible from course while not maintaining conditions - we wish we had been similarly warned in advance.

This is a nice facility and course but overrated IMO. A lot of the holes are typical to other courses until you get to the final 5 holes which is where I think the course is highlighted. My twosome ran into a joined up 4-some on #7....ya an 8-some that was quitting after 9 as it turned out. We also witnessed a 5-some going off #10. The final two with the lake keeps you coming back but the driving through neighborhood backyards and the crossovers of roads reminds me of too much unban life rather than a get away to golf.

The clubhouse facility is certainly first class and earns a 5 star after the round.

A very beautiful course, greens and fairways were mowed and spacious. The tee boxes had been aerated , but were playable. The layout was nice, winding through neighborhoods, but yet very long driving in between holes. Staff was friendly, mowers were courteous. Will definitely play here again.

Had 3rd tee time of day, by number 15 there were 8 groups ahead of us, and this was already 4 and a half hours in to the round. They should just keep it a private course because they allow the members to run around wherever and for close to 80 dollars each, very disappointing experience.

Had a very enjoyable time at Wilderness Ridge after scoring a great price with GolfNow on their Hot Deals. Always worth playing a couple times a season. Course is in good shape for early in the season. Rough's will eat you up, not that long, but really grabs your club. You're rewarded staying in the fairways! Will be back again!

There was no starter and no announcement. We were supposed to play with a twosome but they didn't get to t-box before time to tee off. Then they added a member to our group. Completely unorganized and seemed very loose for a Country Club, We stopped by clubhouse and service was extremely poor as it has been most every time we have been here. Sadly it's a beautiful place but poorly run.

This up to today is one of my favorite courses in this area. We usually will make a trip a couple times a year from Omaha to golf at Wilderness Ridge. Course was in excellent shape. Fairways were well maintained and the greens were consistent and rolled true. The pace of play today will be the main reason I will probably not make the trip back to Wilderness Ridge. Any 5+ hour of round of golf on a weekday morning will definitely scare me away! Weather was perfect, course was great but it is hard to enjoy a round watching the three groups ahead of us average over 15 strokes per person to finish a hole especially when ready golf is not followed.
