“The perfect course for beginners”
Lakeside Golf Course is the perfect course for those beginners who are hitting their very first shots away from the driving range. There are plenty of par threes to practice your short game with players being given the novelty of getting on the green in regulation and trying their hardest for a birdie. The back nine is decidedly harder with the stretch holes from the 14th onwards being particularly testing.
One golf reviewer warns “Beware the murky waters on the short 5th as it is impossible to see your lost ball in the shallows of this hazard which extends almost the full length of the green, and the pin is very often just a yard or two over the wet stuff!”
The course is open to Pay & Play visitors alongside a growing membership. Matthew Wootton the resident professional extends a warm welcome & plenty of advice about the holes! Lakeside is open from Dawn ’til Dusk, and touring Societies are made very welcome, including weekends.
Lakeside is a maturing course conveniently situated near to J38 of the M4 (2 mins) in South Wales.
