I thought the grass around the greens was too long. Great shots to the green just sat in the tall grass. It was a very hot day and no beverage cart in sight.

We returned to this resort for 3 rounds of golf and 2 nights stay. We (group of 24 guys) did this in 2007 and were pleased with everything except the weather. We do this twice a year and go all over the state. This time we did not find it pleasing at all. It started as soon as we arrived... More

My wife and I have golfed and stayed together at almost all of the well known golf resorts in Michigan. Lakewood Shores offers three full courses to choose from plus a chipping and putting course to practice and kill time behind the hotel. The golf was fantastic. Flat compared to our northern Michigan courses but very well kept with nice... More

First off I only booked here because it was the only thing available for Labor Day weekend. The rooms were dirty, did not have a king sized bed as promised and was never told there was a fold out couch in the suite when I booked. When I arrived and asked about the king sized bed I was told someone... More

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
