Lakeview Golf Club is a favorite amongst Delray Beach locals. It is a par-60 executive layout that offers the perfect level of challenge for beginners, juniors, and senior golfers. It is the sister course to Delray Beach Golf Club, a championship course that is less than a mile away. Opened in 1972, the golf course has a classic design that measures just over 3,000 yards. The terrain is mostly flat, making it an enjoyable course to walk. Despite its length the holes have the feel of a championship course. There are 14 par 3s, a fair share of which are quite challenging as opposed to the uniform par 3s you see on some executive courses. For more advanced players, it is a great place to get in a quick round of practice.

Kamala kokemus. Kenttä oli vain par 60.Etukäteen netissä ei ollut korttia nähtävissä, josta olisi nähnyt väylät ja olisi havainnut nuo järkyttävät lännät par 3 ja muutama par 4 väylät.Älkää ikinä haksahtakaa tällaiseen surkeaan kenttään, joka siis ei ole todellakaan hintansa väärtti edes !!! Siksi kirjoitan tämän suomenkielellä, että kukaan suomalainen ei tänne eksy IKINÄ ! PS. netistä sai varattua vain auton kanssa kierroksen, kenttä oli lyhyt lännä (yht.n. 3700 m), joten auto oli vain riesana kierroksella.
