This is a challenging yet forgiving course, water on some holes and deep, overgrown sink holes on a few other holes. Greens and fairways are well maintained and have been in very good shape the last number of years that our group has played here. A good value and a must of the list each winter in Florida.

Took two foursomes out today, playing after the shotgun start made the turn. Beautiful day, observed the usual weeds, growing in the fairways. Sandtraps not raked, but tee boxes seemed in fair shape. Most greens were playing well, some bare spots noticed. Greens tracking pretty well. Putting was pretty good.

Golf course is better than most in the area....I shoundn't have wanted a beer after 9! Went to the bar and I was shocked at how I was not greeted and then subjected to a tirade of nasty remarks and when I stated this, I was told I could leave! I complained to the Pro Shop and they know she... More

Played this course today, the first few fairways were okay, after that the tee boxes were uncut, the fairways in bad shape, sand traps were raked, but some were wet. Greens had been aerated, then "sanded," - rolled fast, but not true. Rough was long, lost many balls. On the whole I'd wait another three/four months and see if it... More

Restaurant/bar area very attractive. As a patron whose dined here for several years, I will say that the restaurant used to be much better....the economy & new owners may have taken it's toll. They no longer have the extensive menu they had. Once upon a time they had an impressive menu and fabulous food. Now, just go & enjoy the... More

Enjoyed the golf, entered into the mix for a golf scramble, which we enjoyed. However after wards we - nine of us - hit the restaurant and first off were told that they were out of YingLing beer, WTH? Second: we were informed there was only one waiter, okay so we could live with a little slow service. Two hours... More

This is a nice laid back place to golf and eat. The course is not hard for average golfers. The restaurant has had its ups and downs over the years, but continues to strive to be a local's favorite eating spot. Dynamite outdoor eating area works well for the natural surroundings which include wandering Sand Hill Cranes.

Lovely European restaurant situated on the golf course. Excellent service and well prepared entrees although a bit on the skimpy side.

Nice enough - like most nice Florida golf/ country clubs, except the food in the restaurant is better.

My two sisters made reservation at the Lakeside G&CC, I was a little hesitant about the place because I heard the restaurant has gone a little downhill also my sisters are from Palm Beach and Ft Meyers so a good quality establishment was essential. We were seated immediately upon arrival and started our visit with drinks. The place was a... More
