Top 5 course in this area for sure, not dried up like most courses, greens were aerated but the ball still tracked pretty well. Would definitely go again with a hot deal.

Great layout, great practice area

Have been paired up with members 3 times at Lakewood National. The members always were friendly, helpful and a pleasure to be paired with.
Practice area is very nice, from the driving range to the short game area to the putting greens.
Greens are very firm, supposedly 11 on stimp, certainly faster than most places. Greens are pretty hard, but no ball marks and putt very smoothly. All in all a great place to play.

Great conditions, fun layout.

As all of the other reviews have said, this course is in excellent shape. Fast rolling greens, and lush fairways. There are some areas where the deep rough was at least 5 inches tall, making for some very difficult second shots. For the most part there’s plenty of room off of the tee, and if you hit to the correct portion of the green there are plenty of birdie opportunities. When it’s windy, the course can feel VERY long so pick the correct tees to avoid soul-killing sadness.

Challenging but fun experience.

Fair and open landing areas. Big greens challenge to hit to the right spots to have a better chance to score.
Great time! Highly recommend!

As Good As it Gets

Have played Lakewood National several times and it reminded me again today just how impressive this course is. It was in PGA Tour condition (and it’s May with many folks already having gone north, so every incentive not to keep it in a refined state.). Where in the Bradenton/Sarasota area can you find a huge practice range with balls included, impeccably kept tees (with seven tee positions) and fairways, and beautifully uniform greens with carpet soft slopes surrounding them? Of course, your greeted at the curb, your clubs are put on the cart, and your treated respectfully by all. And here’s the kicker, we got a Golfnow deal on top of all of that. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Best Course Open To The Public In The Area

Used a "Hot Deal" to tee off early in the afternoon. Paired with two other golfers who were as excited as I was to get on this great course. Simply put: This is the best conditioned non-private golf course you will find anywhere. The greens are fast as light and the areas around the greens are in such condition that you can putt your ball from 20+ yards off the green if you so desire. Staff is very friendly and works to make sure your experience is a memorable one. Tip: If you do play this course go a bit early and use their range and practice greens. They are the best this duffer has ever seen.

Great course. Fairways almost as fast as the greens. Pristine conditions everywhere. Lots of targets on the driving range.
