Link's and Lake's

Two great courses. Short course was fun as well. Bring your "A" game. Target golf, so keep it in play. Lots a trees. Lumber shots aren't fun at all.

Played the Links with my son. Great course. Great staff. Tough course but not overwhelming. We are average golfers, played from the white tees and had a good time. Great value for the money too!

It was a cold damp windy day and we started off as a foursome but after nine holes the other couple quit, too cold. With the cold and the wind it's still one of the better golf courses around and with that in mind made it all worth the cold until you arrive at 18. What a finishing hole it... More

Played in late afternoon on weekday. The Lakes course was in very good shape, and the course design was superb. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rate of $40 was very good.

played the links and the lakes courses very recently and was wowed by the course. each had great layouts and the conditions were very good considering the time of year i visited. The courses are similar in looks of course because they occupy the same acreage. they are unique in their styles how ever, the lakes has a bit more... More

The the drought, the lake was down over 20 feet and hence not nearly as picture perfect as you see on their website. Also the low water level made it much easier to play. I think it is worth playing - they have a PGA tourney here when the British Open is on so it must be good, just we... More

Played the links twice and the lake course once during my stay. Both courses are fantastic and rated in the top 10 public courses in the state. Only odd thing was the lake on the links course was dry due to some EPA water quality issues.

Played the Links course in Sept 2016 and found it to be one of the most scenic golf courses I have ever played. The price was fair for the quality of the course. My only complaint was the condition of the greens. While they putted exceptionally well, it was disappointing to see how many ball marks were on the green.... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the menu at the Clubhouse. The salads, rubes, and chicken sandwiches were all great. They even gave us a complementary bbq rib each as they were making them for an outside function. Super friendly staff. Played there twice, once on the par 3 course and the next day on the Lake course. Fun and... More

Our second trip to Grand National - last year played Lakes, this year Links. Both are terrific golf venues. Links is tougher of two tracks. Many more uphill holes, with small elevated greens. Many forced carries and lots of narrow fairways. Was thrilled get Hole in one on 3rd hole, to be followed by step-son's double eagle 11 holes later.... More
