The better side of Lakewood
Pros: Well maintained. Good signage and multiple tees and pins just like its sister course. Considerably more challenge to this one due to it being better integrated with the trees, and better risk/reward. Stay out of the woods and you'll score decent. Plenty of parking and not as many situations where you can hit a parked or moving car as the North course. Can be very challenging in its longest configuration at almost 4000', but still good for beginners.
Cons: Flat as a pancake for the most part. A few flow issues to find holes 4 and 5 (hint cross the bridge). Those two holes also play very close to one another and alongside a road, so this is probably the one danger spot in the course. Trees being on the left so much gets sort of redundant.
Other Thoughts: The better of the two Lakewood layouts, and once the most challenging in town, the South 9 has kind of taken a back seat to the new mostly wooded 18 holer up at Thomas. Still this course will provide for a nice "park golf" experience and complments the North course well. Worth a stop if you're in town and just want to get some holes in.

Lakewood Park South
Pros: Very nice setting, with many mature trees and much vegetation. Bordered by a "nature preserve" that is kept thick and natural. . Very isolated with an "away-from-it-all" feel. Challenging in length & layout, as well as terrain, with out-of-bounds disasters just a flick of the wrist away. Signage at each hole
Cons: Throwing across road. Errant or short throws can result in concrete roadway landings. Having to cross road and hop over steel cables to access holes.
Other Thoughts: Definitely an above-average course.
