About Lakewood Shores Golf Resort

The Lakewood Shores Resort in Oscoda is popular with golf groups looking for an affordable getaway with great golf. Accommodations at the 152-room resort range from hotel rooms to spacious one- and two-bedroom suites, many with jacuzzis. The main dining room serves three meals a day, while the Scotland Cove serves soup, sandwiches and quick snacks for making the turn. The lounge is where golfers hang out post-round. All three courses are entirely different - The Gailes a links-like challenge, Serradella a traditional parkland and the Blackshire guarded by sandy waste areas. The Wee Links adjacent to the lodging is a pitch-and-putt with holes from 50 to 105 yards, perfect for friendly contests and practice. Families will love the private beach on Cedar Lake, ideal for swimming, jet skiing, canoeing and fishing. Lake Huron is only minutes away as well.

Challenging but Fair

I live in Northern Michigan and the Serradella course at Lakewood Shores Resort is one of my favorites to play. The course is in beautiful shape from the carpet-like fairways to the run true greens. The Serradella plays about 6400 yards from the white tees. The course has a little bit of everything: water, bunkers, and trees, I feel it is a true test of golf for the average duffer. The course is adorned with beautiful flower beds on almost every tee box. How they keep the deer away is still a mystery to me! Lakewood Shores Resort is made up of three very distinctive courses and ond one pitch and putt 18 oles called the Wee Links. I have played all the courses but the Resort course ( Serradella) remains my favorite.

Stunning course

The course is beatiful very well maintaned, we did a little back up on our last nine holes, we had some groups ahead of us. But it was fine. Course is wide open very little hazards. Overall a nice course. One bad I would have to say, the course is near a lake and all day I could hear jet skis. Not very peaceful.

Blackshire

My son and I played on a Saturday afternoon. We had never played Blackshire before and were pleased with the conditions, and the staff. The course was in good shape, the weather perfect and price was fair. I would come back and play again.
I don't play much so it was challenging but not difficult.

If I had to make a complaint and this would be way done the list is the bunker rakes were old and broken. I know cuzz I used them often.

We enjoyed Blackshire

The Gailles

First time on a links course, what an experience. This is a beautiful course, lots of challenges. We did have a problem with a pair of guys that hit into us, made us nervous. The course was crowded because of an outing and slow play. The ranger tried his best to keep them moving. All in all I would go back to try again.

The poorest condition course I have played in 2014

This is $20 dollar golf course. The condition of the course is very poor. There are no bag drop people.
My wife and I played 4 holes and left. It took over an hour to play 3 holes (fivesome in front of us).

Beautiful course

I am just an average golfer, but being a female, I thought this course was beautiful with all the flowers on the tee boxes. The course was very green and well manicured, they take pride in their golf course and I was glad we chose to golf here, but we golfed here twice for the week since the first time golfing there, brought me back again.

Course is a good design, but needs LOTS of work

The Gailes at Lakewood Shores is a great design but has not been taken care of. It is in poor condition. The rough is all weeds and the bunkers are not maintained. This is the first golf resort that I have ever been at where there are no people to help you with your clubs. We had to carry our clubs from the car to the golf cart and when finished, we had to take them off the cart and carry them to the car. Pro shop people were not friendly or helpful. I will say that John, the manager of reservations was great. Without him we would have left after the first day.

Great, golf-til-you-drop resort, but worthy of Top 100?

Lakewood Shores Resort is ideal for a value golf binge for Metro-Detroiters looking for a great long weekend with a handful of courses all offering a little bit of a different style compared to one another. The Gailes Course came to fame as a replica links course in the early 1990s and has earned regular Top 100 acclaim since.

But I must be honest, when you consider the great strides links-inspired golf design has taken in the U.S. in the last two decades (thanks largely to folks like Doak, Coore-Crenshaw, Devries, Kidd, etc.), the Gailes falls a step back. It's fairways and greens are bent, while a true links is fescue. It really doesn't play like a links course, instead it's rather soft.

For me, northern MIchigan golf is all about rolling hills, tree-lined fairways a little water and great value. Why try to be something you're not when what you have to begin with is pretty darn good?

My favorite course! You'll love it or hate it.

A true scottish experience. I swear you hear bag pipes when you walk on the course. Perfect flat tees with "back cut" fairway bunkers...you can not see the bunkers from the tee box...use a yardage book from the pro shop. And, bring a lot of golf balls as you're in the fairwar or heather. If you got what it takes, you'll love this course as I do!!!
