Hole #1

Image

Lakeside opens with a par five. A creek flows through the woods left of the hole and the terrain rises up on the right side all the way to the second landing area. The green is quite challenging, guarded by two front bunkers and having a front and a back tier, separated by a steep slope.

Hole #2

Image

This is a very short par four playing directly along the creek. The tees are elevated and provide an     excellent view of the challenge ahead, the creek, which extends the length of the hole and protects the small green. A well-placed tee shot is critical here for a low score.

Hole #3

Image

This downhill par 3 offers a beautiful view of the entire hole from the tee. The right side of the green is larger and fronted by a sloped approach. A pin location on the left side is more challenging with a bunker in front and run-off behind this narrower section.

Hole #4

Image

Though the scorecard might suggest a short par four, climbing sixty-five feet makes the fourth much, much longer. Plus, the positions of the hazards create a classic challenge and reward par four. A tee shot placed close to the fairway bunker sets the player up well for the second shot into the large green.

Hole #5

Image

The tee shot of this par four is downhill to a very, very wide landing area but with a single bunker at the end, showing the line. The approach to the green, middle iron for most, is uphill which causes a little extra challenge to stop the ball on the putting surface.

Hole #6

Image

This long and picturesque downhill par three, played entirely over water, has two halves. One is an alcove large enough for the putting surface and the surrounds in front and on the right of the green. The other half is deep, final, irrecoverable water.

Hole #7

Image

This fairly long par four has a cross-slope from right to left off the tee into the woods on the left. A bunker on the left side signals safe area beyond, which is a fairly flat surface with enough width to accept a tee shot. Two deep greenside bunkers and a slope to the left make the second shot paramount.

Hole #8

Image

A well-placed tee shot rewards the player on this par four with a straight on shot at the green, guarded on the right front by two bunkers.

Hole #9

Image

This long par five fairway is clearly defined by bunkers. One short on the right, with a target bunker on the left. From the landing area the remainder of the hole stretches out dramatically in the distance with a pond fronting the green, and the Clubhouse in the background. An approach on the left can provide safe passage to the green.

Hole #10

Image

The tee shot on this very long par four is downhill with a solitary bunker on the right. The right side of the fairway provides the best angle to the green, which is set in an alcove, with a bunker on the front left.

Hole #11

Image

This long par 5 has consistently been listed by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 holes in the state of Georgia. It doglegs down to a green that sits peninsula-style on Lake Windward.  It is the first of a great stretch of holes that make the back 9 one of the best in the state.  

Hole #12

Image

This par four tee shot awards a view of the lake and a variety of golf tactics. All players must hit across a small cove off the tees, and a centered shot provides a great look at the narrow, well-guarded green, with two bunkers and the lake. The back right pin placement is sure to challenge even the most skilled player.

Hole #13

Image

The thirteenth is a gorgeous par three that plays over water, across a cove of Lake Windward. A low stone wall supports the front of the green which lies just above. A single bunker backs up the left half of the green. The green is shallow, and requires a precision tee shot for a chance at birdie.

Hole #14

Image

This par four tee shot plays almost level except for a steep hillside off the tee to the left. The second shot yet again showcases Lake Windward on the right, with a stunning downhill view of the long, narrow green. Any shot right of the green spells trouble, with the left available as a small bail-out.

Hole #15

Image

This par four features a tee location adjacent to Lake Windward. Once in the landing area, the view down a gentle slope to the green is as pleasing as the tee shot. The front green bunker provides the most challenging hole locations on the right, while the left side of the green has a chipping area, a much safer approach.

Hole #16

Image

This par four plays uphill, and almost 420 yards from the back. There is a fairway bunker cutting in from the left, a considerable distance from the tees, indicating the best angle to the green, which has two bunkers on the right. The left side of the green is a considerable bail out, with a large chipping area.

Hole #17

Image

The last par three has fangs. It is long, a hybrid or fairway metal, with a long narrow pond wrapping from the left front of the green all the way around to the back left. A single bunker squeezes the putting surface to just under ten steps wide in the back portion.

Hole #18

Image

The home hole is a beauty. A long par five with a tee shot that plays downhill more than sixty feet, providing a fantastic view of the ample landing area. The green is once again well-guarded, with a pond and bunker in front, and two "spectacle" bunkers behind. The heavily contoured green caps off a memorable finishing hole.
