This is a unique range in that everyone is hitting into a large lake. Helps deal with the fear that all of us having for hitting across water. Prices are reasonable, lots of bays, friendly staff, and they have clubs to borrow if you are visiting from out of town. No, i can't comment on the course itself. I'll leave... More

Were victimized by another group of golfers. They were simply bullies trying to start a fight. One of them literally started 'chest-bumping' a guy in our group that is 77 years old. I've never experienced anything like this on a golf course. LakeShore has no Ranger and I think only one guy working behind the counter. My Dad who is... More

I don't know if you could even call this a golf course. There are no fairways and the greens are so soft that your ball disappears in them. Overpriced as well. If you want higher quality golf for less money try the crossings golf club or hillandale, now this dump.

Golfed here several times. Easy to walk with some challenging holes. Be wary of stray shots as greens and tee areas are close together (I got hit in the head here a few years ago). I'm not a fan of the driving range - hit into a lake with floating golf balls. Greens are very slow compared to other area... More

I don't golf, but I like to drive and this is the best driving range in the area, You hit the balls into the lake and they float back to you!! Really neat with floating targets in the big lake!!

A parks style course that has a lot of golf holes in a small acreage. You are constantly hearing fore as most of the holes are side by side. Greens are usually rough, uneven, and slow. They try to do the best with what they have, but...

I don't understand the good ratings for Lakeshore. I've played here since the early 90's on business outings and with friends. I never go unless someone else sets it up. The course is not special and there are no amenities. I hate to hit waterballs on the "driving range" into a pond to warm up. They don't even have a... More

This is a fun golf course for those of us who are occasional golfers. The price is right, the folks are friendly, and the course has plenty of challenges without being overwhelming.
