Outstanding Course

One of the best courses that your going to find in SW Florida. The overall condition is outstanding, the tee boxes.. fairways .. and greens are immaculate. Not necessarily the easiest course with its rolling fairways and undalating greens but it's all about putting yourself in position. Very little water hazards. This is a must play course.

Great course in a perfect shape. Back 9 is challenging and will get to you, if you don‘t manage the course properly. Staff is remarkably friendly!

Two bads on you. Booked at the wrong place and paid a higher fee because sometimes calling the course you can get a special. Also and most important you did not call the course ahead of time to see if the greens/course was recently punched. It takes 3-4 weeks to fully heal from large hole aeration. Aeration is done a lot on Florida golf courses from April through October. Then October to December you need to call and see if the course has over-seeded. If so it takes many weeks before they cut the grass short otherwise it is like shag carpeting. Call and ask and you would have found out a better time to play this amazing course.

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!
