Rating 67.2

Originally a nine-hole course when opening in 1966, Lakeside Golf Course expanded to 18 holes in 1993. The course, located close to downtown Salt Lake City, boasts views of the Wasatch Mountains. It is suitable for players of all abilities. The course was built on relatively flat terrain that features plenty of water. Half of the holes have water hazards coming into play. Lakeside Golf Course makes accuracy a priority rather than distance with several out of bounds areas and holes that are short and tight. The facility also has a practice range as well as putting and chipping areas for golfers to use.

Great winter round, but very slow

Lakeside GC is a challenging course that I enjoy playing, and having the opportunity for a winter round on January 2nd was excellent; the course, although fairly frozen (greens, tee boxes, fairways, rough), was in very good shape; the only drawback to the cold but sunny round was an extremely slow 4-some that our 3-some was unfortunately immediately behind; despite the slow play, it was a great round

Slow, steady round

Lakeside GC is a popular course in a community of people who golf, so it is often very busy which affects the pace of play which isn’t too bad, though; otherwise, the layout, challenge, and staff make the experience quite enjoyable.

Good public course

I enjoyed my round, I was paired up with a local member, and it was a pleasurable experience. The course is fairly easy if you are a low handicap and keep it on the fairway, rough can be deep in places, front nine is pretty straightforward but the back nine has a couple tricky holes That bit me. Overall, I would play it again and enjoyed the experience.

Greens punched slow pace Fairways and green aprons good

At this time I would not recommend a friend play the course, but maybe in a couple weeks once the greens improve after being punched recently.

The course was very slow and busy for the Fourth of July week I guess. A lot of young teens playing the course and they were not playing fast at all.

Not sure why the marshall didn’t hurry up some of the slower foursomes.

Decent for the money

Little Mickey Mouse course. The layout is short and congested but wide open and fun for beginner golfers. Fair priced with well manicured greens/fairways. I would play again for fun but not for competition.

Great value

Fairways and greens were in great shape. Tee blocks were good for a muni course. Don’t let the cheap prices fool you. This is a steal for a causal round.
