The Front 9

Nine truly distinctive golf holes. Each more interesting than the one before it. Finishing with three holes, #6, #7, #8 that are guaranteed to make or break your round for the day. Hole #9, a long par 5, gives you a chance for a birdie if you can hammer your woods and putt like a "Tiger".

The Back 9

If a Par 3 could be ranked the hardest hole on the course...many of our Golfers would certainly pick Hole #13. A gentle rise from the tee to a well bunkered, sloping green make club selection and a well executed tee shot critical. Hole #15 , a 547 yard "double-dogleg" par 5 is all the golf hole you'll ever want... water, woods, and a sloping fairway demands 3 well executed shots to reach this devilishly subtle sloped green. Two putts for par will make you proud.

  • Hole #1

    Hole #1

    This long Par 5 is a great warm up hole. The generous fairway encourages a long drive to this gentle dog-leg right fairway. It will take two more good shots to reach this very challenging green, which is guarded by a bunker in the left-front and woods on the right.
  • Hole #2

    Hole #2

    This short Par 4 dog-leg right is a great “risk-reward” hole. The adventuresome may try to cut the dogleg and boom one over the trees, but the more prudent will choose a 200 yard layup to the left-hand side of the fairway and a short iron to this devilishly small and sloping green, bunkered on the front-left. Whatever your strategy, you won’t want to hit one over this green either.
  • Hole #3

    Hole #3

    A beautiful short Par 3. The large green, framed by two massive Oak trees, is full of subtle breaks sure to test your putting skill.
  • Hole #4

    Hole #4

    This innocent looking Par 4 dog-leg right is all about the elevated green and its sloping false-front. The smart player will shoot for the fat part of the green and gladly take two putts for par.
  • Hole #5

    Hole #5

    One of my favorites…A huge Oak tree guards the left-hand approach to the elevated green of this Par 4. From the tee, there is nothing but trouble to the left, while the smart play is to hit your drive long and favor the center or right side of this fairway. This will leave you with a short iron in and a couple of tricky putts for par.
  • Hole #6

    Hole #6

    This long downhill Par 3 sure looks like a “cup cake” from the tee. Trees line the fairway on the right and the water on the left only comes into play for the most errant of tee shots. Club selection is the key to scoring here.
  • Hole #7

    Hole #7

    Great Par 4! Your tee shot is over water to an uphill right-to-left sloping fairway with woods on all sides. Tee shot placement to the right-hand side of the fairway is crucial, leaving you with an iron to the green. If you miss this green the bail-out is short or right, as there is plenty of trouble left and long on this one.
  • Hole #8

    Hole #8

    Toughest Par 4 on the course…and if you’re playing the tips you better have your “A” game for this one! The tee shot is over water to an uphill fairway. A big oak tree guards the fairway on the right and woods line both sides of the hole from tee to green. Your approach shot demands accuracy as trouble awaits long, left, and right. Bail-out is short front, if a chip and one putt are in your game.
  • Hole #9

    Hole #9

    This long Par 5 is your last chance for a Birdie on this side. The wide fairway encourages a “grip-it and rip-it” tee shot. Large pines line the left side and come into play if you stray to that side. The large green, bunkered on the right awaits…but beware of the “false-front” that extends the entire front of the green, ready to reject any shot not hit deep enough.
  • Hole #10

    Hole #10

    Another long Par 5 that lets you swing-away from the tee. Our massive “signature oak tree” marks the left side of the landing area for a well aimed drive. Second shots should be positioned to the left side of the fairway for a level lie and short iron in. Shots hit to the right-hand side of this fairway may find their way down to water that boarders the hole there. The left-to-right sloping green will feed approach shots in that direction and make pitches from the left of this green a tricky prospect.
  • Hole #11

    Hole #11

    A beautiful short Par 4 that begins with a tee shot over water to an uphill tree-lined fairway. The large sloping green is guarded by a deep front bunker. Stay below the pin on this one if you want to score well!
  • Hole #12

    Hole #12

    Another great Par 4. The experienced “Lakewood player” will aim to the right side of the fairway from the tee, as trouble lines the left from tee to green. Woods and out-of-bounds run the length of the hole on the left and a large bunker guards the front-left of the green. Tee shots hit to the right, however, enjoy a clear approach to this large green and a good chance for birdie.
  • Hole #13

    Hole #13

    If a Par 3 could be voted the toughest hole on the course this one would surely get the votes. The uphill tee shot always plays longer than it looks to this sloped green. The hole is framed by two giant pines and protected by deep bunkers front left and right.
  • Hole #14

    Hole #14

    A tee shot to a generous fairway initiates this Par 4. Your approach shot is down hill to a green devilishly guarded by a large bunker front-left. Approach shots hit long of this green are certain bogies as the hillside halls off severely there.
  • Hole #15

    Hole #15

    This long double dog-leg par 5 is the number 1 handicap hole at Lakewood. From the tee, the object is to lay up short of the pond that crosses the fairway. From there, a well placed second shot will set you up for a short iron to the green. Woods along the right and several strategically placed large Oaks make shot placement a priority. Lakewood regulars proudly take par here!
  • Hole #16

    Hole #16

    This long dog-leg left Par 4 sets up well for those who have a “draw” in their shot arsenal. Woods on the right and a grove of trees on the left frame the fairway from the tee. A large green welcomes well executed second shots, and the best place to miss this green is short, as every other area makes for a tough up and down.
  • Hole #17

    Hole #17

    An innocent looking Par 3 from the tee with a large back-to-front sloping green begging to be birdied. Miss it anywhere but short and you are staring at bogie.
  • Hole #18

    Hole #18

    This uphill Par 4 is a great finishing hole. From the tee, your drive is to a generous fairway bordered by trees on the left. Your approach shot to this green must negotiate deep bunkers on both sides of the green.
