Located in Allyn just 45 minutes west of Tacoma, LakeLand Village surrounds Anderson Lake with Mt. Rainier providing a backdrop to the south. The community includes three beaches and a 27-hole golf course. The course is divided into three nines known as Generation I, II, and III, which are played in different 18-hole combinations. Gen I and III combines the oldest and newest nines. The former is shorter and tighter, while the longer back nine has more undulation on the greens and strategically placed bunkers. There are several challenging holes that feature narrow fairways framed by out-of-bounds, and water hazards come into play as well. The golf course is nicely balanced with more player-friendly features, making it a good option for players of all skill levels.

This is the second time I have played the course. The fairways are pretty generous but the housing development is not guarded well by trees or nets so.wayward shots can hit homes. Many undulations in fairway that could cause bad lies but they had marked by ground under repair for a free drop. Thank you staff. The greens were receptive to approach shots with loft. Once on green the greens were lightening fast. All day was a struggle to find touch on the greens.. Not saying this was bad just a challenge to put on a pro like fast green. The putts rolled perfectly true. Club house food and beverage could use an upgrade..

First time playing here. I heard it was tight but I thought there was ample room on the longer holes. Narrower on the shorter holes. Very well planned course. Greens were in excellent condition rolling true and fast.

I've been playing here for about 4 years now and the course is in much better condition. Most of the improvements appear in the vicinity of the clubhouse. My only issue is that area under repair throughout the course, and especially on Generation 1 seem to just be painted under repair and not actually being repaired. Gen 1 has several areas of pot holes down the fairway, especially on the 3 hole par 5. Price on GolfNow is inconsistent, ai paid $13.00 then two days later the same time and date was $29.00. The nicest thing is Lakeland Village does have tee time Hot Deals after 12:00 so you can use the PromCodes you earn from GolfNow. GolfNow needs to change the after 12:00 tee times for use of earned Promocodes.

Just returned to golf after being off a while from foot surgery. Course conditions were excellent except for the aeration of the greens but what can you do about that?

But by having my foot recuperating I was forced to rent a cart. I was blown away that the rental for 18 holes was $16.00! Now I was figuring the normal $10 fee but when the cart costs one and a half times as much as the hot deal price that's crazy! No wonder there are so many of them sitting there all the time.

It took a couple of holes to get over the sticker shock, then it was a good day of golf.

A27 hole golf course that is well maintained. Great price with Golf Now but reasonable with Golf Now. Staff could not have been nicer. Snacks good at the turn also, somewhat limited but I was there for golf. Driving Range clean and neat, medium bucket 6 bucks you can't beat the price. My recommendation is go to Lakeland and play, you will e joy yourself.

The day was an overcast 45 degree January day. Lakeland Village was in great shape. With it being winter they had the white tees pushed up a bit, but not as far as the normal red tees. The fairways were dry except for a two of holes (#11 and #12). My playing partner and I didn't have a plugged ball in the 18 holes. We were often surprised with the bounce and roll of our drives. The greens were immaculate. The putting surfaces were smooth and a rich color of green. Best of all it was a GolfNow Hot Deal for $10 plus fees.
