The Good & Bad

I’ll start with the positives. This is a beautiful course with a challenging and fun layout. Lots of elevation change. Several views of the lake (thus the name). Quite narrow in some places, but very fair. It’s a tough course but very enjoyable to play. Now to the negatives. The condition of the course has clearly declined over the years. Greens were very banged up and a few tee boxes had no grass whatsoever. Fairways seemed to be fine. The $23 hot deal was well worth the price, but I’m not sure I’d pay the $45+ they were asking to play in late November. All in all, I’ll be back, but I’d love to see the conditions improve because this is a fantastic layout.

Gone to the dogs apparently

I remember when this course was the top ones in the state, an elite course. Just to play it was an honor. And not that long ago. Times have changed in the last 10 years. I think anyone who remembers this course knows that it’s not the course it used to be - not the greens, not the fairways. No one replaces divots or ball marks on greens. It’s a mess. At least keep the people who live around the course from using the course like it’s a rail-trail. It’s really aggravating when you’re trying to tee off (multiple times) and people are walking their dogs in the middle of the fairway.

Terrible conditions to golf today.

Front 9 was closed due to course maintenance. Back 9 was open but should have been closed as well. Aeration had just been done on greens and there was more sand on the greens than in the sand traps. I wasn’t made aware of the conditions until I loaded my cart up. One knock on this app is no face to face communication on course conditions before your round.

course wasn't really open

They had just aerated the greens and were in the processes of laying down sand. Putts picked up a ring of sand while rolling. It was like putting on a wet beach. The front nine was closed without noticed, so we were told just to play the back nine twice. But the back nine then obviously got really backed up. Meanwhile, they charged full price? The course should not even have been open.

Same issue, and then the staff acted like it wasn’t their fault. Asked for a refund and was laughed at and told no one knows what is going on there. Finding it harder to pay the price with this type of stuff.

Greens in rough condition

Slow play unregulated
Greens in terrible shape. Ball marks unkept and abused.
Terribly slow round 5 1/2 hrs of waiting.
This was one of my favorite courses to play but there is no course discipline anymore.

played this course many times back in the 80's and it was almost PGA quality. NOT anymore, fairways had many, many burnt spots, I can live with bumping a ball a foot or so in any directions to avoid a bad spot in fairway, but greens were even worse. the 4 holes on back nine across the road,14-17 were terrible,with at least 1/4 to 1/3 of greens burnt up or just sand. sadly this once great course is no more than a second rate neighborhood public course that is WAY overpriced for the condition it is in. pace of play also terrible on number 7, had 2 groups in fairway/green and 3 groups waiting on box.

Week of Golf at Lakeview

We finished a week of golf at Lakeview Resort today and I must say that it is well improved over last years stay. Fairways and greens were in much improved shape from last year. Tee boxes and bunkers need a good bit of work as well as the cart paths. A few greens were in need of attention but overall were better than last year.
It appears that the greens crew are trying their best and it is understandable that the money for improvements are tight with CV19...
It is always fun down here with my family and a friendly staff.

Where’s the Marshals?

Course could be a good to great bargain if managed properly. Very slow pace of play due to failure to follow proper golf etiquette. If you have to wait 5 minutes for every shot and you get hit onto several times, than a Marshall is needed.
Quit after nine because of the pace of play and potential for bodily harm from the group behind us.
