We played this course on the second day of our three day golf outing in early June. Since the weather had been damp during the previous weeks we used quite a bit of bug repellant because we were in the Northern Michigan woods. However, the mosquitoes didn't deter us from enjoying the scenery, the golf and the friendship. The breakfast... More

All three courses at Lakewood Shores were good. Some of our group fount the Blackshire to be difficult, I was not one of them. Fairways were quite wide and the difficulty was the bunkering at the greens. Greens were undulated, but not too extreme.

A nice track. This North Carolina style course is lined with tall pines and large waste areas. The course was in good condition with large, fast, undulating greens. Every fairway ends 10 yards short of the green (so no run ups) and the greens are ringed by large deep bunkers and long rough.

All service personell I encountered over a Memorial weekend outing were outstanding. Smiles abound. Made for a great weekend. Greens conditions of The Gailes did not meet expectations and standing water at Blackshire needed to be navigated on a few holes. But overall; a great experience.

We stayed one night at the resort, played Blackshire the day we got there, and got rained out on Gailes the next day. Blackshire is not a visually appealing course. It looks like it needs some TLC or attention. The standing water was ubiquitous, and nobody was working on dealing with that. We had to tee off from the red... More

I have been organizing a golf trip for anywhere from 24-32 golfers every May in Michigan. The group comes from all over Ontario. We have been to several areas in Michigan and were never quite happy with the courses or the staff, or the facilities, etc. I found the Lakewood Shores 3 years ago. Craig, the employee who i was...

This course is a lot of fun to play. Challenging, beautiful course in the woods. It doesn't have a club house but serves some snacks. Bring the bug spray!!

As you may know, the Gailes is a Scottish links style course and is challenging, if a bit overplayed/unkempt. Blackshire is a traditional "up north" course that was less "chewed up" than the Gailes and warrants a play while you're there. Great stay and play (and eat if you like) packages!

Like everyone's review, golf was good. Blackshire was infested with mosquitos, even with bug sray, got eaten alive. Course was in good condition with great greens. Gale was also very challenging although it was very crowded. However, the Lodging accomodation and service was terrible. We received the call at 9pm stating the front desk will be closed. They told us... More
