“Playing Blackshire”
Spread over less than 200 acres of rugged and natural landscape, this 18-hole championship golf course has the look and feel of New Jersey's famous Pine Valley Country Club.

The Blackshire is a more traditional course. Tree lined fairways with large landing areas. Bunkers were in great shape and a fair test of your game. Greens were large and undulating. The club house staff and starters were very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for...More

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...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...More

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.
