Fairways are freshly mowed. Hardly any mud even with the storm overnight. Rough not in full bloom. Nearly as good as it gets here.

The Lakeview course is a par-66 championship level course, with two par 5s, eight par 4s, and eight challenging par 3s. The course features a set of gold tees rated at 1000, blue tees rated at 950, and a set of beginner-friendly white tees rated at 900. Hole distances are measured from tee to green center. The course was opened to the public in Spring of 2005. Rubber tee pads were installed in 2010, and blue and gold tees were converted to concrete in 2015.

Accuracy is a must, both off the tee and on approach shots. Good course management is necessary to score well; bad shots are penalized and good shots rewarded. The views and scenery on the course are spectacular, especially the signature Hole 15 (par 4) which overlooks Lake Arthur. Nice mix of open and wooded holes with elevation a factor in the overall design. Know what poison ivy looks like and take water on the course. A round of golf at Moraine is a strenuous but rewarding workout.

Carry in / Carry out litter policy (no trash cans on the course, but there are trash cans near the beach end of the parking lot).
