Played Wednesday before aeration next week. Overall the course is in good winter condition with mostly good coverage throughout. The bunkers are a bit hit and miss. Some have very good sand while others are hard packed. One of the practice putting greens had been aerated with larger holes and plenty of sand. It will be probably be last week of April for the greens to be fully to close to fully recovered. Playable after a couple of weeks. This week maintenance was started on practice facilities and some tee boxes on the course were punched. The heavy course maintenance starts Monday, April 1st. The staff was friendly.

Play Wednesday in a club tournament teeing off shortly before 10 am finishing in 4:20. The greens rolled smooth with medium speed and held solid shots. The fairways had good coverage with decent rollout on tee shots. The rough along the fairways and around the greens had decent coverage. The length had an affect on shots but was not overly penal. Most of the bunkers were in good shape with nice sand but there were a couple holes that had greenside bunkers with hard compacted sand/dirt. Hole 7 comes to mind. The tee boxes have mostly good coverage with a few being thin. Overall the course is in nice winter condition. The staff was friendly.

Aeration of the golf course will begin April 1st. Maintenance of the practice areas will start the last week of March.

Walked on Tuesday early Tuesday teeing off about 6:45 finishing in 3:45. Aside from a couple of small roped off wet areas the course drained really well from the previous weeks rains. The greens rolled smooth with medium+ speed and held shots. The fairways had good coverage with nice lies to hit from. The rough along the fairways has good coverage. Among the trees there can be some thin/bare spots. The length of rough definitely affected shots (especially in the early morning wet) but was not overly penal. The bunkers appeared to be well groomed and in good playing condition. I was in only one good conditioned fairway bunker but my playing partners had no complaints of the greenside bunkers. The tee boxes had decent coverage and are mildly unlevel.

I wish this course would allow singles to book online when a threesome and/or twosome has booked into a tee time. I would play here more often if I didn't need to show up and get on the wait list. The staff was friendly.

Played Thursday morning teeing off about 7:15 finishing in 4 hours. The greens were in good conditions. They rolled mostly smooth, with medium/fast speed, and held shots. The fairways have mostly dried out from the previous week of heavy rains. There were a few soft areas scattered throughout but had minimal affect on play. The rough has mostly good coverage with a few thin/bare spots. The length was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers appeared to be in good condition (not in any) and my playing partners had no complaints. The tee boxes had good coverage. Overall the course is recovering well from the rains minus a couple fallen trees that were cut up and being removed. Lagos is an enjoyable track with some nice variety. The staff was friendly.

Walked on at 7am Wednesday teeing off at 7:30 finishing in 4:30 hours. Play was a little slow do to cart path only and the group in front of mine being a hole behind. I didn't lower my rating due to wet from the previous few days of rain. I based it primarily on level of coverage and maintenance. The greens were in good condition rolling with medium+ speed, smooth, and held shots. The fairways mostly had very good winter coverage with a few areas of thin. The rough had decent coverage with some thin/bare spots. The bunkers had good sand but the bottom of the bunkers were still slushy wet. Other than some wet in the low area of the bunkers they appeared well maintained. The tee boxes had decent coverage and were reasonably level. Overall the course seemed to handle all the rain decently. Most areas were decent to hit from with some low a spots being a bit mucky.

Overall Lakewood has an enjoyable layout with good variety. Short and long par 4s, varied lengths for the par 3s, some doglegs, and water coming into play on several holes. The newish driving range is nice along with practice putting greens and a chipping green with bunker. The staff was friendly and the starter in the pro shop was calling groups to the 1st tee.

Played Wednesday teeing off just after 7am finishing in 4:15. The most common complaint I read about this course is the length of play. Typically if I tee off in the first hourish of light I finish between 4-4:20 hours on a weekday. I do enjoy the layout of the course. It provides good challenge with some variety in hole shape, length, and rolling terrain. Water does come into play on a few holes as well.

The greens were running medium/fast, mostly smooth, and held shots. Although I did repair quit a few unrepaired ball marks. The fairways have good winter coverage with a few thin/bare spots. The rough has mostly good coverage with some thin/bare spots. The length was mildly to moderately penal. I was not in any bunkers but they appeared well groomed and my playing partners did not seem to have any difficultly with them. The tee boxes have decent coverage.

A few days late posting my review. Played Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving. Teed off about 10am finishing in 4:55. A little slower than normal but it was a tournament. The winds were up a bit adding to slower than usual play. The greens rolled smooth with speeds being toward the faster side and held shots. When the greens are running fast being above the hole is challenging especially with front pin placements. The fairways had mostly good coverage with some thin areas and had good rollout on tee shots. The rough along the fairways and around the greens had good coverage with the length being low and not very penal. Rough areas beyond along the fairways can be thin and bare. The bunkers had decent sand to play from. The tee boxes were fair to good. mostly good coverage with a few boxes being thin. Always enjoy playing Navy Destroyer. The staff was friendly.

Played on Tuesday teeing off about 6:35 finishing in 4:05. The greens rolled with medium/fast speed, mostly smooth, and held shots. Like most older parkland golf courses the greens primarily slope back to front. When the greens get on the fast side at Eldo try to avoid being above the hole. It's difficult to stop putts by the hole especially with front pin placements. Unfortunately I fixed a lot of ball marks today. Lazy golfers! The fairways mostly have good coverage with some thin/bare spots. The rough around the greens and along the fairways has good coverage but among the trees there are thin/bare spots scattered about. The rough was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers are in good condition. The tee boxes have fair to good coverage. Always enjoy playing Eldo. One of my favorite munis in the Long Beach/North O.C. area. The staff was friendly.

Teed off Tuesday morning about 7am finishing in 4:10. The greens are completely healed from aeration a few weeks ago. They were in very good condition rolling smooth with medium/fast speed and holding shots. The fairways had good coverage with a few thin spots and provided decent rollout on tee shots. The rough along the fairways and around the greens had mostly solid coverage. Among the trees the rough tends to have thin/bare spots scattered about. The length definitely affects shots but not too penal. The bunkers were well groomed, other than lazy golfers leaving footprints. The couple greenside bunkers I was in had good sand to play from. The tee boxes have fair to good coverage and are mildly unlevel in spots. The driving range does not open until 11am on Tuesdays. There is also two practice putting greens and a chipping green. Always enjoy a round at Eldo. The staff was friendly.

Back out to Mile Square since all the other courses in my typical rotation had been aerated with the last two weeks. The word from the pro shop is the greens will not be aerated this fall at Mile Square. Teed off Wednesday a little after 8am and finished in 4:23. The greens were in very good condition. They rolled smooth, with medium/fast speed, and held shots. The fairways had good coverage with a few thin spots and had decent rollout on tee shots. The rough had mostly good coverage with some thin/bare spots primarily among the trees. The rough was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers had good sand and were well groomed. The tee boxes had mostly good coverage and were mildly unlevel in spots. The staff is friendly.

Played Friday teeing off just short of 7am finishing in 4:10. Aside from a few unrepaired ball marks the greens were in great condition. They rolled medium/fast speed, smooth, and held shots. The fairways mostly have good coverage with some thin/bare spots. The fairways also provided decent rollout on tee shots. The rough has mostly good coverage with some thin/bare mostly around the trees. The length is long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers were well groomed with a reasonable amount of sand. The tee boxes have good coverage for the most part and the tee markers are always set to the width of the tee box. Pick your angle off the tee.

The Lagos course has an enjoyable layout with some rolling terrain. The practice facilities are nice. The driving range is large with an option of mats or grass (grass $2-$3 more per bucket). There are two practice putting greens and a chipping green. The staff was friendly.

Walked on Thursday morning waiting about 20 minutes to be called. Teed off just short of 7am finishing in 3:45. The greens were in very good shape rolling smooth with medium/fast speed and held shots. The fairways had mostly good coverage with a few thin spots. The fairways provided good lies to hit from and decent rollout on tee shots. The rough along the fairways had good coverage and was long enough to affect shots but nothing too penal. Among the trees the rough had some thin/bare spots. The bunkers were in excellent condition with plenty of sand. The tee boxes were hit and miss. Some had good coverage while others were fairly thin. The driving range has a good number of stalls and I like that the range balls are purchased at the ball machine with a credit card. I just wish they offered a smaller bucket than 55 balls for a pre round warm up. Always enjoy an early round at Mile Square and the staff is friendly.
