Lakewood Shores Resort (Gailes course)


Unrated course. Not yet visited by the Where2Golf Team.
   Lakewood Shores Resort (Gailes course) Est. 1969

Where2Golf says: 

Lakewood Shores has brought together three championship courses that provide a variety of golfing experiences. The highly-rated Gailes course offers something akin to British links-style golf. Golfers will encounter large double greens, meandering berms, sod-faced pot bunkers and long fescue grasses. The Blackshire layout, although not a replica of Pine Valley, creates a similar rugged feel with hardwoods, large sandy waste areas and undulating greens. The Serradella is a classic parkland design with minimal hazards, wide fairways and large greens.

The Gailes course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Michigan. This links-style layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

At this Stay & Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee on any of Lakewood Shores' three courses.

Did you know?

In the early 1900s the land now occupied by Lakewood Shores was known as Serradella Farms, owned by Carl E Schmidt. In the late 1960s the land was developed into a golf community known as Lakewood Shores, featuring a private golf course (the Serradella course). In 1986, entrepreneur Stan Aldridge, owner of Indianwood C.C. in Lake Orion, MI, purchased the Serradella course and all adjoining land. Steps to develop Lakewood Shores into a golf resort began in 1990 with the opening of its first onsite lodging. The Gailes course was added in 1992 and the Blackshire in 2001.
