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.

SLOW SLOW. SLOW

OMG. Had to wait on every hole.starting with the 2nd. Took 3 hours to play front 9. Finally at 4 hours and on hole 14 I gave up. Tried to skip a par5 15th to jump the delay and fou.d it was 2-3 groups on every hole through the 17th.
If you want an enjoyable golf outing, so not bother here.

The course was overall in the best shape I have seen it in for a little. A few tee boxes need some love and whole 16 we in really bad shape. It was nice that the rough was cut down (I played Mountainview the week prior and it was awful). Playing as a single I got stuck behind some slower groups that didn't let me play through which was annoying but totally understand as that happens with a single. The reason it just isn't a 5 star is just that its a great course, just not a 5 star course, nothing bad, I'll always play it and for the price I'll always be back!

Sand traps tough to play

Fairways very good; greens fast -best to be below the hole because there is very little chance to stop a putt from above the hole
Condition of most sand traps was Only thing keeping this from a 5 star.
Always a pleasure to play.

I’ve played Lakeview, numerous times over the past years and never know what I will find. This was first time for 2021 and the fairways were great, the greens were fast, but the cart paths bordered on nearly undriveable and the bunkers sucked. The “Staff”, who appeared to be comprised of WVU students, seemed to be more focused on their cell phones than their guests. I’m sure Governor Justice wouldn’t approve of them acting like I was inconveniencing them with my questions of them!

Nice course. I played here about 7 or 8 years ago and it was better than I remembered. Picturesque views of the nearby lake and a good mix of easier birdie holes and tougher challenging holes
