Rating 72.0

Situated in the heart of Chestermere, Lakeside Golf Club is conveniently only 20 minutes east of downtown Calgary. The 18-hole layout is player friendly enough for all skill levels to enjoy. The golf course is gentle enough for high handicappers but it will still give more advanced golfers a chance to use their skills. Water has a prominent presence throughout the golf course, it comes into play on nearly every hole on the front nine. The back nine may have less water, but you'll have to contend with more strategically placed bunkers, like on the par-3 13th. This tough hole features not only a large lake on the right but also an array of bunkers circling the green. In addition to the course, With all of the hazards you'll be facing, it may not be a bad idea to use Lakeside's driving range and putting green to warm up.

Great Course Minutes From Calgary

I have played here a few times this summer and the course never disappoints. The fairways had a few rough spots but other than that the course was in great shape.

Lakeside greens

Course was in good condition. Serveral holes were roped off and we were not allowed to ride on fairway. Greens were fantastic. Went to the lounge for a drink afterwards and could not get served. There were workers that seemed to have better things to do than wait on us. There was only a total,of four tables with people at them. . We left with no drinks.

Slow Play

Absolutely no enforcement of acceptable pace of play. Marshalls are non-existent. Fairways and bunkers are what you would expect for a $45 round...sub-par. Would never pay full price to play here. Calgary's city courses are nicer.

Flatlanders Play Lakeside

While visiting family in Calgary we wanted to play a relaxing round of golf. Lakeside did not disappoint. This was our first time playing the course. It was a pleasure playing on the well maintained tee boxes, the soft lie fairways and the well manicured and challenging greens. The course design reminded us of courses in Phoenix. All the staff were very friendly and helpful especially the starter and course marshal.
Pace of play was excellent and we finished the round in under four hours. We will play this course again.
Overall an awesome golfing experience.
