Lakeshore lures with convenience, price

Posted March 12, 2013

Course: Lakeshore in Durham

Play: There was a biting wind that day, so it was a little chilly. The course is short, but there are several pins that will tempt you. I was fortunate enough to drive the green on a short par 4. As fate would have it, I 3-putted for par. Undeterred, I really enjoyed the round. 

Worth Noting: The first thing you notice about this golf course is the driving range over water! The course is conveniently located, and the price is right at $32.

    I play at Lakeshore very frequently and I think that it is a very fun course to play. It is a shorter course, but it also has lots of attributes that will challenge other aspects of your game. The staff is very friendly and has always been good to me and my friends when we have come to play. I have also noticed steady improvements in the course conditions over the last few years with the greens being the biggest improvement. I agree with Gerald that for the price this is a fun and inexpensive course that I believe you will enjoy.

    I worked at a company just through the trees on Alexander Dr., so we frequented Lakeshore, although we usually used a less flattering term that rhymes with lakepit. It is a fun course, though. I really miss Eagle's Crest off Jones Sausage Rd. near Clayton.
