Likely Won't be Back

Pace of play was about the only thing this course had going for it. Greens were best kept part of the course and solid speed but on more than one hole there were multiple dead patches. Tee boxes were rock solid, so much so that on one hole had to get on one knee to pound the tee into the ground. If you did not hit the fairway there was a good shot your ball would end up in a patch of dirt/sand. Yardage markers were sporadic and often times inaccurate. No water available (only for purchase) on a 75 degree summer day. Overpriced, for $40 there are numerous other courses around that present a much better value.

Driving Range or Here?

Can't beat the GolfNow hot deal for $12 but other than that, not much positive from here. Ball cleaners were dry, sprinklers were on when hitting off the tee box and/or green the entire back nine, broke majority of my tees just trying to put them in the ground. The course has potential but when there's only 5 people out there on a gorgeous 70 degree day, that tells you something. I'd pick the driving range and spend the same amount of money over the frustrations of this course.

3 Star on it's best day. Play Glendarin Instead, just 1 mile away, maybe $10 more, and well worth the extra money.

Good value for cost

Almost all fairways and greens were in good or great shape. Couple greens had some disease spots. Tee boxes were average, some below average. Not a lot of hazards, but decent amount of blind shots. very friendly pro shop staff and cost of food and drinks very reasonable.

fun course

This was a fun course near the lake. It did have a few mandatory caries and a couple 200 yard par 3 it was very hot so there weren't many golfers out. The restaurant attached was very good as well.

Course is well maintained

Course is challenging yet easy to play. Rough is very easy to find the ball and then get out of. Possible to walk but much easier to ride as there are many hills and some of the holes have a little distance between one another. Not really much for food in the clubhouse but there is a restaurant above that serves food. A very enjoyable time playing Lake James Golf Course.

Lake James Golf Club

The course is in excellent shape and we never waited on other players to hit a shot. Amazing pace of play on a nicely landscaped and great but challenging track.
