The course is average condition, the staff at check in not friendly or helpful. Double charged for cart. Greens are true, fairways need some work and bunkers need a lot of sand.

Under $50 with cart is good for this course.

I believe last time played would be in either the 90's or early 2000's before the flood in I think 2005. Love the layout, great if not a long hitter and playing from the whites, little more challenging for those playing from Blues or further. Short drive from town and a very enjoyable day with a great Hot Tee time.

Can't say Wow like some other courses but it was a good course that was fun to play. Course in good condition although wet from recent rains so no roll, which made it play longer. Paired up with another couple who had played here before and that added to the enjoyment and guide around the course. Needed to know where to hit your tee shot on some holes or you could get into trouble. Would play again if ever in the area.

Nice Course in good shape for the time of year....the greens were a bit on the slow side, but rolled very true and were in overall good condition. Given the close proximity of the houses near some tee boxes and greens additional netting would be a good idea. That being said, the proximity of the houses made for a more conservative approach and kept the majority of drives in the fairway....maybe that's a good thing!


Player Tip: Leave the driver in the bag for the majority of tee shots....no need to be long off the tee here.

The greens had been aerated so it was quite bumpy. We played after a heavy rain the previous day so some of the fairways were roped off and it was cart path only. Give it another 2-3weeks and it should be in good condition.

I love this course! Unfortunately the first hole is under repair. I was glad I didn't pay full price to play. The first hole is reduced to a par 3 and the 125 yards from the green into the fairway is getting new sod. There are many greens that have lots of winter kill still which made putting challenging.

The staff is friendly and the food is great. I would recommend this course to everyone but maybe wait a month or so before playing until the first hole is opened back up to a par 4 again and the greens grow in more.

I played this course for the first time after finding it on Golfnow. Very nice, well laid out and challenging course. Lots of water on the front, choose your shots wisely, straight is good!!! The course is well kept, the staff was very friendly and the starter was helpful with good tips for play. Play was a little slow with high HC in front of us, but not overly. Our three some still had a great day of late season golf. Would love to play again

Lakeside is always in excellent shape, staff are very friendly, and on average the price is much lower than any other course in the Calgary area for this type of facility. The course has a good variety of golf holes which can challenge every level of golfer depending on the tee box selected. However it will meet every level of golfer with a pleasant experience and is easy to walk. A bonus is the beautiful Club House that serves very good food.
