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.

Switcheroo.

Ended up playing mountain view book lake. Course needs work but think the lake view did not. Golf now has no idea I assume.

Nice course if watered. Dry and crazy bounces.

Missing an Important aspect

Although many of us hate ending up in the sand traps it's a part of the game of golf to be mastered (or not). Every single one on this course were nothing but hard dirt and rock, some full of mud from watering. Although every other part of the course was great this was a disappointment and I would not recommend playing here at this time if you enjoy the complete challenge.

Don't waste your time or money at Lakeview

I wanted to play golf at Lakeview in Morgantown for many years and finally got the opportunity recently. I couldn't have been more disappointed. Perhaps this course used to be good, but it's no longer worth playing for a number of reasons. The course is old and poorly maintained. The greens were rough with sparse grass in many areas, and the tee boxes were narrow, uneven, and also consistently sparse. The sand traps were unkept and a number of them were filled with water. On top of that, the golf carts were old with loud gas engines, which sounded more like go-carts from the amusement park than golf carts. Acceleration of the carts was inconsistent and breaking was poor and dangerous at times on the hilly course. However, the two most inexcusable situations I encountered were as follows: (1) There was absolutely no water available on the course at all... not at the holes, in the clubhouse, or at the cart stand, and there was no drink cart available at any time throughout the day. There was water available for purchase at the turn, but no water coolers were provided anywhere on the course, extremely which was dangerous on a hot day, which it was, and especially dangerous for seniors, which we are. (2) The cart paths consisted of broken and patched-up asphalt, still containing many potholes and uneven surfaces, inconsistent in its width and looking more like a remnant from an old war than something that should be on a golf course. The ride was terribly rough throughout the day. To top it off, the course was very expensive to play. I left feeling as though I'd been ripped off and regretted ever playing the course. Lakeview is certainly not worth your time or your money. With the lack of water, the poor golf carts, and the terrible cart paths, it is a dangerous place to play, especially for seniors. Spend your money on the multitude of good courses elsewhere and avoid Lakeview at all costs.

Beautiful and Challenging

Got a great deal on golf now. The course was a little wet from 2 inches of rain but played well. The course was in excelente condition from tee box to green. The greens were fast and true. The views were amazing. Can’t wait to go back.
