Good course for the cost.

Beautiful location along the River, plenty of elevated tee boxes. Some tee and greens could use some work, but it is November so I fully understand. For only visiting for a couple days, it was a great getaway for the cost.

They are bringing it back to first class level.
Cart paths and sand traps need work.

Mud traps abound !!

I have played old Lakeview many times, and have always been pleased with the course. This week, though the greens were in bad shape, the sand traps were full of mud and water and rocks, and I lost many balls under leaves in the fairway. My partner, and I were very disappointed in the conditions and hope that the new owners will address their problems with the golf course.

Good value. The rough and greens are in bad shape. Probably tough to maintain with so many trees.

Great Course

Overall, I was impressed with this course. I don't have any significant complaints and I walked away having had a lot of fun. I like to read reviews -especially when it is not a nearby course (this wasn't near to me -I was travelling). Some reviews were of people complaining about some brown spots/dead grass areas on the green. I did notice that on some of the greens. However, that didn't bother me at all. The brown spots were typically far from the hole and didn't matter so much. To me it was like part of the challenge (like having to putt/chip over a little bit of rough). So I didn't see that as a big deal. It looked as if they were working to fix those spots. I didn't think the spots took much away from the nice look of the course. Perhaps a bit more water hazards (I know I should be careful what I wish for) would be nice. There were lots of sand traps, which I liked. But not too many to make it too difficult or too annoying. The layout was great. Nice variety and well designed. Great scenery. The golf carts had touch screens and a GPS to give distance to the green. The carts also had small coolers attached. The people that worked there all seemed nice. I would like to play here again and would certainly recommend it.

Lake view WV

The greens are in poor condition and players don’t fix ball marks.
Divots is fairway’s are not fixed or replaced.
Little or no sand in traps.
View of the lake on 4 holes at the most.
Restrooms at main building are in shambles. No soap to wash hands and no paper towels.
No practice range, only putting green.
Even with GolfNow discount it’s not worth the money.

What a shame

It’s an absolute travesty what a dump this place has turned into. Course, facilities, everything, is an absolute dump. Trash grass (In places), dirt bunkers, paths you need an off road vehicle for… it’s bad. The only saving grace is the presence of a few courteous staff members. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Sad what it’s become

This course and mountainview used to be nice, but the owners simply must not care anymore. Lakeview used to be one of the nicest courses in the state but now it’s average and over priced. Greens are baked out and dead on most holes, fairways aren’t cut well, and the tee boxes are dirt. Go play mountaineer or paradise if you’re in town. They’re cheaper and in better shape

Maintaining

Lakeview was overall in decent shape. 15 out of 18 greens were in good condition, which is significantly better than its sister coarse Mountainview. Fairways were in good shape and they dragged the bunkers which was nice to see. I played on a Saturday so the pace of play was very slow (5.5 hours) but the staff was friendly and the starter even cleaned our clubs while we were on the 18th green. Overall, I would say Lakeview is still slightly over priced for the coarse conditions compared to other courses in the region, but I was satisfied with my experience.
