Lakewood Golf Club is one of the South's premier golf destinations. Opened in 1961, the course has hosted the New Orleans Open 26 times over the years. Beautiful cypress and oak trees frame the golf course, providing a beautiful backdrop throughout the round. When Ron Garl renovated the course in 2009 he managed to obtain its original character while modernizing the layout with new fairways, tee boxes, and greens. Strategically placed bunkers and fairway contouring were also added. Lakewood Golf Club is owned by the New Orleans Firefighters Pension Fund and as a tribute to New Orleans Firefighters, the final hole was redesigned and renamed "Fire in the Hole." Called so because the traps are arranged in a set of flames against a backdrop of red sand. You won't find anything like the bunkering on this par 4.

Good challenge

Good challenge because it allows you to grip it and rip it!!! But you also need to play position golf at times. Fun all the away around.

Slow but Sure

The pace of play was extremely too slow.
I got the email on doing a review and we were on hole 13.
This course is always a sure bet when you can't go anywhere else because of conditions.

Positive

the greens are spotty
Course is in good shape for this time of year. Always play decent at Lakewood because it is pretty wide open and very few OB's so confidence is very high when hitting driver.

I don't want to let people in on this secret.

This is the best course for the money in the Greater New Orleans area. The staff is amazing. The layout is fun and can be difficult. It is always in good shape and the almost island [over 240° of the circle hole 17 is sweet. It is really worth a try. A million times better than the new City Park

Very nice course

Course staff was very friendly. Course is in good shape. Greens had a little crabgrass but were still very playable. Bermuda greens and fairways are in good shape. Water is in play in a few holes. Fun course to play.

Eastbank meets Westbank for the First Time

I had only heard about Lakewood about a year ago even though I had lived in the New Orleans area (Eastbank) for 4 years. Based on the green fee price, I expected Lakewood G.C. to be a premier course. My experience proved this to be true. While Lakewood is wide-open which suits my game well, the presence of so many water hazards on so many holes (at least 12) proved to be a challenge. Most holes were moderate in length and so accommodatable to the average golfer. The traps were in very good shape and well-maintained. The greens were recently aerated and sanded but rolled pretty-true. In a few weeks they should be excellent. Overall, it was a good golfing experience and if I weren't relocating to Texas, Lakewood would be a regular stop on my golf days!

BIG JOHN REVIEW

Unfortunately, the greens had just been sanded, making the putting on the course very frustrating. I look forward to coming back when the course firms up. There should be a notification that such measures have been implemented.

great/fast round

Played on a Tuesday afternoon, just me and my wife. We were the only people out there and played in under 2.5 hours. Course was in great shape except for the greens although really can't count that against them since they had just aerated. Will definitely play here again soon
