Lakeland Golf Club originally opened in 1964 and in 2002 it was expanded to an 18-hole championship course. Barry Serafin reworked the traditional design of the original layout into a challenging course that is still playable for a range of skill levels. The five diverse sets of tees make it even more accommodating. Seasoned players will find the championship tees to be a formidable test but the gold tees are tame enough for beginners. Its versatility makes the golf course an excellent venue for tournaments and outings. The course can be tight in some spots, requiring a fair amount of accuracy. Lakeland Golf Club's fairways are generous and seemingly tame but they are bordered by strategically positioned bunkers. There are also meandering streams and a few lakes that come into play on a few holes.

One green was in bad shape otherwise the course

was in excellent shape and provided a wonderful

experience and a terrifically memorial labor day.

Staff and accoutrements were friendly as well

as the fellow patrons. PTL for small town

Early afternoon round on a Thursday. Able to play 18 holes in just under three hours. Conditions were better than expected, given some of the past reviews. Greens in decent condition for late summer. Having never played the course before got caught out in the high grass areas from blind tee shots on a couple of holes. All in all a nice course and nice experience and would play again,

Just moved to Central Ohio area, so we have been playing different courses. Booked a hot deal at Lakeland golf club on 07/26. When we arrived there were 4 groups on the first Tee. I asked about this in the pro shop and the attendant told be "their tee times were from 11:30 to 1:00. Then how did we book a 12:50?. I've seen this about time I played here, 6 in one group going off number 1. Course is extremely fried at this point, fairways, greens ALL areas. Skip this course find somewhere "Windy Knoll" where course is very good and they follow tee times.

This is a very nice course until you get to the greens, almost unplayable compared to the courses I normally play. The ball bounces all the way to the hole making putting nearly impossible.

Used a hot deal, cost less than $1 per hole. Course was in very good shape. Talking to the manager they have done a lot of work to the course. They are putting on an addition to the club house that will have 2 golf simulators. Also have a very nice bar area (was not open during my round). Greens was soft and slow.

Had a 11:30 tee time but was able to tee off early. It rained some that morning so it wasn't very busy. Finished 18 holes in 2 hours and 10 minutes. Greens are starting to roll true. Previous month the greens were some what rough but they were in pretty good shape. Looking forward to playing this course again.

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this place when I booked a tee time here, but the place is nearby so I'd give it a try. The layout was quite surprising, with plenty of elevation changes closer to the clubhouse and some very exposed holes further away. Really enjoyed the short par 5 9th, with a tee shot down into a valley and an approach shot over water to an elevated green if you dare to go for it in 2. Fairways were in good shape and were finally firm since it's dried out here. I cannot say the same for the greens though, which were soft, bumpy, and patchy in areas. Meanwhile, the sand was quite hard, and the rough had some dried out areas (although not immediately off the fairway). The other amenities were pretty good, snack bar had good selection, the carts had some oomph to them and they even included a ball & club washer on it. And for a $14 hot deal (typical prices hover around $30 a piece), it's great value. If only they paid a little more attention to the greens, it would be an excellent place. For now though, it's decent

Haven't played this course in a few years. The new design of some holes were nice. Tee boxes, traps and fairways were in great shape. Greens were rough because they had airated 3 weeks earlier and didn't use enough sand I think. Overall course was very nice and I will go back a few times this summer!

I have played this course many times in the past and have always enjoyed it. The course was immaculate and always manicured. The pace of play was awesome with no issues. This year was a different experience. While the staff is friendly, the course was in rough shape with mowed grass clipping everywhere. The fairways appeared to have cut with a rotary mower instead of a reel mower. The play was so slow every hole had 3 groups stacked up. After 45 mins and one hole played I left and went to another course. I hope the staff makes some changes and goes back to the way it used to be. The course has real potential it would be a shame not to return to its former status.
