Lakeview Golf Club is a favorite amongst Delray Beach locals. It is a par-60 executive layout that offers the perfect level of challenge for beginners, juniors, and senior golfers. It is the sister course to Delray Beach Golf Club, a championship course that is less than a mile away. Opened in 1972, the golf course has a classic design that measures just over 3,000 yards. The terrain is mostly flat, making it an enjoyable course to walk. Despite its length the holes have the feel of a championship course. There are 14 par 3s, a fair share of which are quite challenging as opposed to the uniform par 3s you see on some executive courses. For more advanced players, it is a great place to get in a quick round of practice.

Have played this course several times and have been satisfied most of times. There have been a few times when course of play was extremely slow and rangers could have been enforceful to increase time of play. Looking forward to returning to this course this fall. Was fortunate enough to have had a hole in one however no consideration Was offered. Some type of recognition would be recommended

Nice challenging executive course. Scores vary from round to round. The only knock on the course is the pace of play. Didn’t see a ranger during the round and we were caught behind a group of 5 duffers who started play as two groups that combined as one as soon as they were out of sight of the clubhouse. Conditions have improved with each time we played over the last two weeks. Unfortunately the slow pace of play Demi I shed the pleasure of playing and working on our short games.

This course was in better condition than when we played it last week. The greens were much improved. There are variety of hole lengths to test your short game skills. Pace of play was excellent through the front nine but slowed done substantially on the back nine.

Staff was courteous and helpful.

A good course layout and the pace of play was excellent. Greens had recently been sanded making putting a bit of an adventure. The course was hard and relatively dry. You had to play short of the greens in order to hold them on an approach shot. Difficult to score well under these conditions. The price is reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Nice course to work on short game and playing par 4s without your driver. Overall conditions were good-very good. Staff were all quite friendly. In spite of some previous reviews about pace of play problems, they appear to have addressed that by regulating tee times and pace was excellent.

Course of play at times are very poor. Recommend stricter tee times should be enforced, if players are late they should be required to wait for available times. There are many times when rangers could enforce slow players to speed things up. Some type of reward should be given to hole in one recipients

What have they done! They are now scheduling starting time 8 minutes apart when it should have been 11 or more. We started 45 minutes after the scheduled time. This is unacceptable! What has management done to create this mess.
