Bunkers

I understand that if you’re not going to take care of the bunkers it leaves the course wanting but this course is just doing away with all of them. I remember when this was a very nice course really not anymore

Great day

There is very little to complain about when you consider the course condition,layout & weather we had today.Sure there were some wet spots but that is to be expected with all the rain we have had lately.The grounds keepers are to be complemented for the job they are doing all things considered.

Interesting mountain course

Lakeview Resort has comfortable lodging, many amenities and two courses. We booked a hot deal at the Mountainview course which is definitely set in the mountains. Course was in good condition though greens were slow as expected for such a course. Some challenging shots, a few blind ones but generally very fair for a mountain course.

Sand trap

The course itself is in great shape. The sand traps are crap but they have a plan to remove them to make grass bunkers. The cart paths resemble the roads of WV... pot holes everywhere!

Course in Great Shape

The tees, fairways, and greens are flush. The only complaint and why the rating is lower is because the cart paths resemble the WV roads and the sand traps are still crap. Fortunately, the head pro says they have a plan for them. I don't know when the plan is to be executed, but I'm glad to hear there's a plan.

Better options available

The Course at the resort is great but the Mountain View course is like the bad little brother...Nice layout...Beautiful Homes, nice staff cannot make up for unfinished sand bunkers uncut rough that is too high for this type of course compared to others in the area..with some attention could be a nice track..

Course was in great shape. Sand bunkers are always the problem. Keep it out of them. Everything else beautiful. Not Crowded and a beautiful day. Very good value.

Course was in pretty good shape for it being early April in Morgantown. The greens were just punched so they were a little tough but overall I was very pleased with the course. The only negative I have is that there is no range. However, love the layout of the course...lots of fun par 5s and great variety of holes. Great value as it was less than $30 on a Sunday morning. Definitely the best course in the Morgantown area and I would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

Poor condition

We have had significant rain lately, but the course was in fairly poor condition. Washed out bunkers everywhere and shaggy fairways.

Understaffed, no course management

Not too bad when getting a deal on the price. Very understaffed. Maybe because it was a holiday but traditionally a golf holiday.

On a descriptive note - course is narrow for the average golfer. Lots of short par 4s. Thick rough grabs the irons. Greens are not easy and are very fast when it’s hot and dry. Challenging but fun. Learn how to square up your shoulders on all the hills. Not very many flat lies. Bunkers were in good shape. Beautiful scenery for sure.

You will be taking care of yourself on this course.

Sprinklers on entire round..course overly saturated

This course reminded us of TPC at Myrtle Beach...the problem was we played TPC in a driving rainstorm...had the 1st tee time at 7am so pace of play wasn't a problem until we had to wait for the sprinklers...Sprinklers were on the entire round and this is after it had rained every day this week...the sprinklers created standing water everywhere including the greens fairways and tee boxes that all had inches of standing water on them...on numerous occasions the Sprinklers would start almost on top of us while we were hitting our shots and on one occasion started on the green while we were putting and shot water inside our cart ruining my buddies cell phone...if I knew we had the Sprinklers to deal with I wouldn't have bothered showering in the morning...we called the pro shop to complain and the girl working said would call the maintenance staff...but never did...when we stopped in after the round to complain she said she couldn't get a hold of them and there was nothing she could do...she obviously didn't care...we also told the kid working the carts as well and he didn't seem to care either...also they are no longer maintaining the sand traps and seem to be growing them out and they were treated as ground under repair...ive never been a huge fan of the layout here but the course always been in good shape now it seems like they don't care and they don't know how to treat customers either which means we won't be back unless changes are made..

Needs Significant Improvement

The condition of the course has continued to decline in recent years - some of this due to a lack of maintenance, some of it due to the lack of shared responsibility for course care by players. Poor drainage has damaged several fairways and many of the greens appear to be suffering from a heavy fungus presence. Although not the case with my most recent round, pace of play is often unbearable. With the current course condition, ownership must consider either reducing fees (to beecome comparable with other courses of similar quality) or begin making the necessary investments in improving and maintaining the quality of the course. Do not pay the full price for this course - seek reduced rates through online third parties and it will take some of the disappointment out of your round.

Fun Outing

We played on a Friday afternoon and it had rained all morning up until a few minutes before we started our round. The weather was great and the course was in pretty good condition. They need to either improve the sand traps or do away with them completely.
