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.

Played Gen II & III courses. Challenging sloped fairways, giant greens, excellent conditions. The Gen I course looks a little shorter on the card, but I was told it has narrow fairways.

Lakeland Village is a favorite place to play. They have awesome deals when booking through GolfNow.

Course was in great shape when I played. The greens were fast and true. There were few ball marks and they were all repaired. The fairways were neat and well mowed. A few areas were marked as ground under repair due to damage from wet winter weather conditions. These areas were showing improvement and should be playable soon. The rough was groomed and clean. The tee boxes were fine. My only knock on the tee boxes is that some of them are not directed toward the fairway. Overall, my hour drive to Lakeland Village is well worth it. Now that I think about it I shouldn't submit this review - it will just increase players at Lakeland Village and I won't be able to get the get "Hot Deal".

The would have gotten 5 stars the reason it didn't was that the greens needed to have been cut they were very slow for that reason, maint's was cutting behind us. Love the course very challenging.

What a great place to play golf. I've only played generation two and three so I can only comment on them. A typical Northwest layout with abundant room if you find the Fairway. Course knowledge on a couple holes doesn't hurt. The majority of the greens are large but lots of undulation and speed. Not a tough walking course but we did ride. Look forward to playing again.

The course USB awesome, the prices are awesome, EVERYTHING is awesome.........but. But this last time we played, the greens keepers didn't get out of the fairway until we were forced to play into the guy. Other than the the fairway mower, i have nothing bad to say about anything at Lakeland Village.

This is a gem of a course located in Allyn. With all the "top courses" around this course is forgotten. It has tight fairways and large greens. The pace of play was great and the course was dry and in great playing conditions. The only negative is the little snack shop kitchen wasn't staffed so we weren't able to get any food at the turn.

I've been to Lakeland Village many times and my friend and I took advantage of a hot deal on GolfNow for $10.99 plus taxes and fees (about $15 each total). We walked and had two companions for nine holes (we played Gen II and III and they played Gen II and I). Perfect day, near summer weather in March. I gave course conditions a 4 because of some wet spots and two greens with bare patches, but it will be a 5 soon, especially when everyones spring flowers bloom. I generally don't care for layouts that go through housing, and this does, with lots of OB (which I managed to avoid, but you have to plan well) hence the 3. Haven't really partaken of the clubhouse, but amenities I've used are just fine/average. I'll go again!!
