The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I first visited Lakeview about three years ago, and was very intimidated by it. In fact, I wouldn't even throw hole #7, as the pro pad aims straight across a sizeable pond and I wasn't about to lose a disc to it. There was a lot of shule, and I wasn't even aware that there was an alternate tee for 7 until recently. Most of my disc golf enthusiast friends and relatives don't like Lakeview, for one reason: WATER HAZARDS! Yep, Lakeview has a fair number of them, affecting holes 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 18, to some degree or another. This course talked me into buying a Lightning #2 Driver just so I could be bold enough to tackle holes like #7 (I have since switched to an Innova Dragon). You'll encounter a fair amount of woodsy throws too, so bring your Champion or Elite-Z plastic. You'll encounter some low-grade elevation changes at holes #2 & 5, and the tee pads on holes #1 and #3 are elevated.

Lately, with the semi-drought conditions we have been experiencing here in Florida, a lot of the water has dried up, and the park folks have come in recently and carried out a clean-up of all the shule along the ponds and canals. I think this has done much to make the course more appealing, and with my present experience I am not so intimidated by hole 7, or any of them for that matter.

First-timers to Lakeview may find the layout somewhat confusing at first, but it's a great course, and my second home base for disc golf. Tuesday Night Glow is held every week weather permitting, and playing the park at night is a completely different and amazing experience. One night I doubled up with Team Discraft member Bryan Moore and ended up winning some cash! If you haven't done it, you should definitely try it!
