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.

Worst experience.

This course has always been in terrible shape with awful service but I met a first in my 30 year golfing life on Friday. They wouldn’t let me play.

I’m a 7 cap that plays 100+ rounds a year. So I know how a course works.

I show up as a single for a quick cheap round and they tell me I can go in 10 mins. I ask if there is anything later because I’d like to warm up.

Previously I had called to inquire about tee times and knew there was a gap between 1:08 and 1:56 with NO reservations. They asked me to go at 1:08.

I asked if I could go warm up and head out. And I’d play slow walking as a single and wouldn’t bother the groups in front of me.

They proceeded to tell me I wouldn’t be allowed to play as a single. I’d have to wait until 2:48 for another group with an opening (along the way lying that the tee sheet was full..... it wasn’t).

I left to play a much better course 15 mins away. Should have just went there to begin with.

This course even without this incident is usually in terrible shape, it’s overcrowded, and has awful service.

Advise to avoid.

Thank you for your honest review. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience at Lakeside on Friday. It is never our intent to have our patrons leave with anything other than a good memory of our facility. I spoke to the staff about this matter and they told me you arrived at 12:40 for the 1:08 round. The staff is encouraged to refrain from booking single times into completely open times due to the volatility and unpredictability of online booking engines; times can become booked at a moment's notice. In retrospect, we should have made room for you in one of the open times and for that, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We hope you will give us a chance to redeem ourselves and show you what we are really all about at Lakeside.

Cant beat it!

As a public course Lakeside is worth it. Booked an early morninv round for only $40 whiich ncluded a cart. The course is in good shape however the greens are slow. Stay out of tbe traps as little sand makea it hatder to hit a good shot. With that said worth the short drive from Calgary and can't beat the price for a round.

Short course. You better be accurate.

Not a bad little track. Most holes are short but make up for it with dog legs and lots of water. Although they where understaffed with the poor girl running the halfway house and the bar, she still managed to be friendly. This course is smack dab in the middle of a housing community. Pretty easy to hit a house if your not very good. There is only one bathroom on the whole course and it’s right beside the driving range, so your taking you life in your hands if you go for a pee.

Good course way to rushed

I love this course and have played here lots. What I don’t like it the extreme rushing of players. Our 18 holes took 4 hours not to long at all. When we got to the club house after he 9th hole the Marshall said we were a hole and a half behind. So we skipped grabbing food and went straight to the tenth hole only to find out we had to WAIT. SERIOUSLY!!! I was very upset, so don’t rush people who cares everyone is there to play golf and enjoy it and when you rush them they won’t.
