Type Public
Par 72
Length 6528 yards
Slope 127
Rating 71.0

Named after the bordering lake that the course overlooks, Lakeside Golf Club takes full advantage of the natural landscape of rolling hills and live oaks. Water comes into play on nearly every hole on the course. Streams and dry creek beds dot the course, creating challenges on several holes. The golf course also features undulating greens and narrow landing areas. Designed to provide a formidable test for any golfer, Lakeside Golf Club demands accuracy in addition to careful strategy. One of the most notable difficult holes on the golf course is the par-5 12th, which requires an approach shot over water to a well bunkered green.

love/hate

Like most the reviews I’m saddened that this course could be a gem but unfortunately the maintenance is atrocious. Fun layout but the greens are in terrible shape and my backyard has better grass than most fairways. I would love to see someone take over this course and give it the maintenance it deserves and see it become what it could be. This could be a gorgeous golf course if maintenance was up to par

Tee Time!

This course is very good. Has its little challenges. Tight fairways sloped greens. Overall enjoyed the experience. Pace of play was excellent. The only complaint I have was the restrooms in the club house needed attention.

Has potential

Driving up to the course you are greeted with a beautiful view of Canyon Lake and then you see the green for hole 2 and quickly question if you made a mistake. The staff is beyond friendly and I’m sure the reasoning behind the courses faults extends past them. The tee boxes to begin with are basically just your backyard grass, very hard, very patchy and same can be said about the fairways (if you wanna call them that) it’s basically just run of the mill grass that is in an awkward state of growth, seems to short for maintenance to cut but way to high and patchy for anyone actually playing. Now on to the greens.... yep that’s it.. not much to write home about. Very dry, a lot of dirt / cracked greens, the speed varied between holes but I do note that the practice green is just as bad as the greens out on the course so +points for having them match. To end this review, I say it has potential due to the fact it’s in a beautiful spot, has great views, but just seems like management or ownership needs to be evaluated. Had the course conditions been at least decent or at the very least the greens were puttable I’d play here a lot more, but in reality it seems like it’s not really a priority to keep it updated and to put it blunt playable at all.

Rough greens

Have played this course before and on occasion the greens have been patchy and wet. Just a month ago course was in good condition. Not so this time. There was no green to the word greens, very very patchy and they prided themselves on a recently mowed course but that was only true on the front nine. Good value for price but this course has seen better days and hopefully will get back to being a great course before the summer sun burns it up.

Fun course

The course is a very nice course the only problem is the greens are in very bad shape. If they fix the greens this will be a very good course.

Love/Hate

I absolutely love the layout of this corse. However, the greens were in such poor shape, a Plinko ball took less bounces and turns than most of my puts. Shot a 79 but with decent greens, it would probably have been close to par. For someone working hard on their game, it really brings you down.

Its coming along

my wife and I played this course twice this week.
Tuesday and today it was amazing to us how 2 days made such a difference grass is coming through on the fairways and greens went from a 3 to a 4 in 2 days. You can see the staff working hard to get this course back into shape .
It takes a lot of work and money and the consortium here are doing what it takes to bring golfers back including these 2 Canadians who had a great time today. Had a chance to chat with Steve who filled us in on what is being done there to bring this course back to the glory days from the 70’s when course opened with volunteer help and private money and from what we saw over the last few days they are on the right track.
We will be back to check them next year.
Good Luck Steve and crew See you next year.

Lakeside falls short

We are winter Texans, and like to play a variety of courses. Lakeview has very poor grass conditions, especially the greens. I realize it is February, but we have played other courses in the last several weeks who have decent grass so I know it’s not entirely the time of year. The course itself has a very run down feeling. Also, we use Garmins for distance, and it took me a while to figure out that they had reordered their holes—their hole 1 was my Garmins hole 10. It would have been nice to know that beforehand.

Hi Marty,

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Although we are disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your round, it is helpful to get feedback. We will constantly be working on the course to get in it back in shape. Although we are going through a rough patch now, we think you'll enjoy the course in the spring. Please consider giving us another visit in the future.

Terrible

Perfect day for golf ruined by a golf course that refuses to do even basic matinace. Fairways that has no grass only weeds and greens that wouldn’t pass for fairways on most golf courses This is sad because the layout ireally is quite good. Don’t let the price intice you it’s not worth it

Poor condition

Could be a nice course but in extremely bad shape. Numerous greens with bare patches and those with grass had a lot of native grass growing in. No grass on numerous tee boxes and bare fairways. Might be better in the spring but terrible now. Not worth the green fee but was able to play 18 in under four hours.

Don't beleive the pictures.

Golf needs lots of water and care. Greens have weeds where short grass should be if it has grass, some have large patches of dirt. Fairways are dry with large cracks and minimal fairway grass. Could be an excellent course with work and great greens keeper. As is only worth a minimal amount to play, not a great deal for the 16.50 we paid.
