Having been to resorts in Gaylord several times, Lakewood shores fell short.

The good: beautiful views of beach and lake in town and Tawas. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Food was adequate but nothing outstanding. Inexpensive packages. Serendella was well groomed. Gailes very challenging, but not as difficult as expected if you stay in fairways. Blackshire was most scenic of the 3. There was no problems with bugs, as the breeze kept them away.

The bad: no microwave or hair dryer in rooms. The course caters to large groups of drunken golfers.

The ugly: extremely slow play. Count on a 5 hour plus round. No rangers patrolling the shirtless, drunken golfers who urinate in the middle of the fairway. When did blaring music become part of playing golf?

Stayed June 2013, travelled as a couple

recently visited this area with a group of 12 golfers. Accomodation was tired looking but adequate for us. Cleaned everyday. Golf courses were in good shape. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Meals were good and you could update for minimal cost. For a group of guys golfing, this was one of the better places to go. Very enjoyable atmosphere along with good golfing.

After visiting Michigan for 6 years for our annual golf trip!
This course ranks high in my book! We played this April of 2012!
Weather cold and more or less opening week,
Our condo room Ce with great value, guys in the group loved it!
The little par 3 was awesome for after hours fun, beer were a must! ;)
All courses were great green very smooth and fast and the green Super , who we met, knows what he is doing!!!
I would suggest this resort for pure value ! And the links feel of the gales is very neat!
The only downfall is lack of restaurants and a wee bit if a drive to the little town!!

have been going to michigan for the past 6 years for a guys golf getaway.this is our first time at lakewood shores.previously stayed at hawkseye and gull lake.of the 3 the accomadation at hawkseye was much superior.there was 12 of us.we stayed in the condos by the par 3 course.condos were somewhat tired in appearance but for a bunch of guys were quite acceptable.daily house keeping did a great job.our package included free breakfast and dinner.breakfast was continental(good selection)and you could upgrade to a hot breakfast for about $3.75.dinner choices are terrific and comes with a salad bar.all 3 courses were excellent and in good shape.the staff-cleaning ladies-servers and golf course staff were friendly and helpful.for the money this place is an very good choice.we had a 5 night -6 round package that included unlimited golf.we stayed may 26th tp may 31st.bring bug spray as this time of year the blood suckers are plentiful.

Room Tip: rainy weather and may golf means bug spray

If your main purpose is golf, this is a great place. The sales team was so helpful during the planning process and everything was as expected. The golf courses were in great shape for the last week of September. The 3 different types of courses gave great variety for all levels of play. The accommodations although dated were clean and comfortable. Perfect for 10 guys on a golf vacation. If your looking for a romantic weekend getaway go to somewhere that caters to that. If your looking for a great golf vacation without breaking the bank this is the place. The women who rated it as a 1 should have realized she was at the wrong place. Should be crabbing at her husband not the resort.

All 3 courses are different with unique features and layouts. All 3 are still in great shape even with the excessive heat and no rain this year! We stayed in one of the 8 large condos that must be brand new. All of them overlook the wee links and the Seradellas course with a back patio. Similar to Gull Lake. Service was excellent everywhere but the front desk. Love that Northern Michigan attitude!

Room Tip: Stay in the condos! Brand new, clean and only 1/4 mile from everything except the Blackshire course.
