Lakeview Golf & Country Club -- Decent Course at a Cheap Price
Review by: Golfer I grew up playing at Lakeview, so I know the course well. The description on this site is mostly accurate, but eight, not four, holes require carries over water of some sort. If you tend to slice the ball a lot, you probably need a few extra balls--at least nine holes have OB or hazards along their right sides. All in all, the course is a lot of fun, with reachable par 5 holes, driveable par 4 holes, and challenging par 3 holes. You can score at Lakeview if you are aggressive, but wayward aggressiveness is often punished harshly. During the summer months, the course tends to be in rough shape, but the fall and winter months usually present pretty good greens overseeded with rye grass. The fairways alternate between hard and mucky, depending upon the elevation of the particular hole. The course is often overrun with obnoxious rednecks, but they aren't too bad as long as you avoid feeding them and making eye contact. Lakeview is generally a pretty good course, certainly worth the few bucks it costs to play.

Lakeview Golf & Country Club -- No goats this year...
Review by: Kevin Marsh ...first time I've played Lakeview in over 10 years and I was pleasantly surprised. The fairways, for as dry as the weather had been, weren't bad at all. The greens though were a bit long and spongy, but still very playable. The course has a few flaws, one being drainage ditches about 190 yds. out on 3 holes, making seniors and shorter hitters lay up with an iron. Makes for one LONG par 5 on one. Number ten is another throwaway hole, with water 210 out, and to carry the water a 250 yd hit is required, with a dogleg and little landing area. Signature holes are 18, a par 3 over water, 17, a short par 4 over water, and 7, a nice par 4. It isn't a goat ranch. It is playable, but it has it's flaws.
