The Good: Extremely private, personal golf club of wealthy Chicago real estate developer Dan McLean based in the outskirts of Lake Geneva is one of the quirkiest, most unique golf experiences I’ve had. Centered around a beautiful reservoir, this design created by McLean and quasi-architect buddy Mike Lasch, features double fairways, double greens, and multiple holes with “boomerang” style shaping around ponds. Impressive property that has to be a thousand acres, includes a modest, nice clubhouse that is fully stocked with cocktails and beer at all times, a little putting green, and has a nice staff that operates the facility despite its limited play. Was in very good shape considering the poor weather in the Midwest and the lack of revenue stream for small membership and no public play.

The Bad: No practice facilities other than a small putting green. Too many holes with blind tee shots and crazy small greens for my liking. The fake turf on several of the tee boxes is understandably economical & slightly comical, but not the best for consistent play. NOTE: The club has to outsource its cart maintenance when there are group outings: our cart died on the first hole.

The Verdict: Lakewood is one of the most unique golf experiences in all of Wisconsin if you are lucky enough to get on. Once you get past some of the quirk and interesting features, it truly is a fun golf course and one that is great to talk about over a beer on their patio dining area that overseas the reservoir.

Best Hole: While the 10th & 11th holes on the other side of the reservoir are interesting, nothing holds a candle to the Par 5 15th, one of the craziest holes I’ve ever played. Almost a complete U-shape, you can either play around the large pond guarded by tall trees or you can take on the green with your second shot over the carnage if you have the stomach.
