Great layout, not to long, but a quiet time through the woods. Great greens and hole design. Highly recommend.

Even with rain the night before...we were able to play 18 and edit this gorgeous course! All that I'd ask is having a few more things available in shop for snacks etc. Since it was near end of season, I'm sure that's why it had limited availability. Great, challenging golf for people at every level of play!

Different than the Gailes Course. Much more sand. Not only sand traps but sand and scrum throughout the whole course. Some places were lined with rotten fallen timber. Some areas were just like scrub land-as though a sagebrush would fly by you. Some of our group loved the course. I thought it was ugly and the play just didn't flow.... More

Just got back from another week of golf at Lakewood Shores! All three courses are tough with sick pin placements, with the Gailes being the hardest. This resorts will challenge any golfers ability. Couple of downsides that can be improved. Rooms are dated and the breakfast could be better.

The Blackshire was a great course 10 years ago but needs some maintenance. Trees need to be trimmed coming out of tee boxes Tough test of golf with trees on every hole.

Played there about 20 years ago and decided to come back for a golf buddy reunion. First the courses. Seradella is the old resort course. We did not find the holes all that interesting. But was good basic golf with unusually fast greens probably lack of rain. Blackshire basically what other commenters have written. That course is a car drive... More
