The woman at the check in desk was not friendly. The tee boxes were chopped up and not maintained. The fairways were in very good condition. The greens were aerated more than 6 weeks ago, I was told, but appears as though it was a week ago. I would rate the course as a 1 or less.

...since I last played Lakewood CC and while I remembered it was an OK track, certainly at the good value “Hot Deal” price, the fairways were in very poor condition, even for the early season conditions. They badly need to aerate and super-seed the fairways, then cut and give them a heavy roll as they were very spotty and clumpy. It’s an otherwise interesting layout and fair bit of challenge from the tips, greens are funky with several swale effects going on, plus they make good use of greenside traps and fairway waste bunkers. The outside tiki bar rocks and has great food and drinks.

Again, a decent course, but they need to work on those fairways.
