Type Semi-Private
Par 71
Length 6744 yards
Slope 138
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.

my golf game wasnt only thing that sucked

Course was great, would play again....but mosquitoes just hatched and they were ferocious. Whats more annoying that "get in the hole" or "potatoes" during ur backswing...is mosquitoes all up in my grill. Even with 20% deet they still were after me. That round of golf probably took 5 yrs off my life with the amount of deet i used.

Good value

Course is fairly tight with lots of water. Lots of houses but they’re reasonably far off the fairway compared to some courses. The course was in great shape considering how early it is. Just over four hour round for a Sunday So can’t complain there. Beer cart girl could have came around a couple more times but other than that it was a great experience.

Great last minute choice

Decided Tues night to go play Wed, because the weather was so nice. Booked through GolfNow as a single with cart for 9:40, for $35 with cart. They let me use my own court as a single. Checked in and played with 3 sr. members, great guys, very enjoyable, fast round. Greens were awesome! Great deal!

Great condition

The course is well maintained and in great condition for so late in the season. The staff are friendly and helpful, there is a nice charm to the place. There is good variety of play with doglegs, long holes, water holes and a few shorter par threes - the course is suited to all levels.

Great Condition, slow play

Got this round as a hot deal for 18 and a cart- but only got to finish hole 13 cause of darkness. Wish they would have had a Marshall out there to speed up the last few groups-as I drove in I noticed a few groups lacking etiquette. Would've been nice to get a 9 hole rain check, but no dice. Very happy I didn't pay more than I did for the round. Would golf here again, but not at a regular/reasonable rate. It would have to be a smokin deal. Course was in great shape though, especially for how dry it has been. **Only recommend this course if it's not busy.

Thank you for the review, we are sorry to hear a few groups slowed up your round today. We will take a closer look at any pace of play issues. Becuase the round you purchased was a GolfNow Hot Deal 100% of the round belongs to GolfNow which is why we could not issue a 9 hole rain check. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you again in the near future.

Good day on the links.

They have done a lot of work to repair some fairways.
Still a bit more to be done, especially on 17. Greens are in good shape. Like the fact practice areas are included in fees. Good value.
