At The Lakes the beauty can temporarily distract one from the realization that this course is quite difficult. The course opened in the summer of 2007, one year after officially closing The new layout features some renovated green complexes and some very interesting golf holes- that will certainly challenge all levels of players.
On property is a practice green for putting and chipping (no range), and a clubhouse with pro shop plus bar/snack area serving beverages plus hot & cold sandwiches. For a pictorial review of this course click on the review link near the top of this page.
