Generation I & III at Lake Land Village Golf Course
Located in Allyn just 45 minutes west of Tacoma, LakeLand Village surrounds Anderson Lake with Mt. Rainier providing a backdrop to the south. The community includes three beaches and a 27-hole golf course. The course is divided into three nines known as Generation I, II, and III, which are played in different 18-hole combinations. Gen I and III combines the oldest and newest nines. The former is shorter and tighter, while the longer back nine has more undulation on the greens and strategically placed bunkers. There are several challenging holes that feature narrow fairways framed by out-of-bounds, and water hazards come into play as well. The golf course is nicely balanced with more player-friendly features, making it a good option for players of all skill levels.

This course was punched and sanded an still putted great. Usually has fast greens. Todaybwas tad slower but great job on the greens. Very playable
Played in the afternoon and it was not too crowded. A little dry in places, but overall the course is in excellent condition. Price on Golf Now was more than reasonable.
Usually this course gives you the conditions that we wait all winter for. Great fairways and some roll. On this particular day there was a lot of water on the course. Very soggy and there were places on several holes that were so wet they were almost unplayable.
Carts drive over those parts and tear up the course as well.
I love this course but let it dry out some and leave the wet soggy conditions for winter.
I had a very good experience. Met three really good guys and Had a very enjoyable round of golf.
My favorite course
I live in Tacoma and have played all the on the peninsula, in town, and many others. I now play Lakeland at least once a week and twice is not uncommon. My drive to Lakeland is 45-50 minutes and I don;t care. The greens are sweet, fast, challenging, I'd pit the overall against anywhere, Olympic, Oakbrook, McCormick. They are right. The layout of Gen 3 and 2 challenge you every hole. 5 and 6 on Gen 3 are short but frustrating . We call it the gauntlet. The guys at the desk are great and the girls are beautiful. Good beer, burgers and dogs. The course is the most peaceful I've ever played. I'm 60 years old and a 10 handicap. See you there. It's not Pebble but I love it.
I brought a couple others who had not golfed here...
We tee doff at about 3:30 so we were pretty much alone... cloudy day but no rain. We played pretty poorly, but not because of the course. They ere clear that they want to come back.
We got our moneys worth!
I invited a couple friend to play here. They had not played here prior to this. We have played together many time and generally score in the 90's, but all shot about 105. We had a very good time, but our games were not on and the course seemed long...the other thought it seems like there were several par 5's....more than normal.. The weather was a bit threatening, but it did not rain and was not hot so a very nice afternoon about 65 degrees. Both guys said they want to come back and I sure will play here again as we have a beach house in Allyn.
First time at Lakeland
My first time playing here and was impressed with the course. Early tee time and was done in under three hours. Will play here again soon.
beautiful hidden course
A friend told the course was in great condition, he was right. Narrow course with lots of turns and elevation changes. 27 holes, nice people, would have given a higher rating if they had a better practice area. iron only range that drops into a gully, no chipping area that I could find.
In good shape, BUT THEY NEED A MARSHALL
Showed up and there were no carts available, bummer. 9 bucks for a terrible push cart, sad. Group in front of me were 4 total hacks. There ball traveled left and right all over the place with frequent search parties for lost balls.
would not let us pass all day 3 hour front 9. I asked the cart girl if they were all drunk and she reported that one guy was well on his way. they all disappeared around the 13th and my day was saved!! 5 1/2 hour 18. Course is in good shape, greens 8.5/10
We walked 9 holes and the course is in fabulous shape. Folks at the clubhouse were great to work with as well. Highly recommend.
Lots of challenges
This course will give you all you can handle including birdie opportunities. Some elevation and some straight away fairways that will test your accuracy.
Very nice course
First time at this course and first time out golfing since Mar 10th due to Covid. Golfed Gen III and II, both are well designed and the course in general has a lot of character. Greens are quick but true to breaks. Some balls rolled off if not hit on front of green or front fringe.
Gorgeous day and the course was in great shape. GUR are clearly marked and the greens were in excellent condition.
