Types Of Golf Courses
Public Golf Course
A public, or daily-fee golf course is fully open to the public without restriction, usually privately owned.
Municipal Golf Course
Similar to a daily-fee golf course, these public facilities are owned by a city or other municipality and are known for having budget-friendly fees.
Semi-Private Golf Course
Semi-private courses offer pay-and-play fees each time you visit, but also offer memberships that allow exclusive or unlimited access to certain course features or tee times.
Private Golf Course
Private golf courses are member-only facilities that require an initiation fee and annual dues to gain course access or book tee times. Because the general public does not have the opportunity to play on private golf courses, members enjoy a less crowded atmosphere with upgraded amenities.

Jemsek/lakewood # 2 Course
The Jemsek/Lakewood Course features 4 sets of tee boxes that measure 6770 yards/122 slope, 6358 yards/118 slope, 5831 yards/112 slope for men and 124 slope for women, and 5341 yards with a slope of 118. As the slope ratings indicate, this course is very playable – and the white tees are a good choice for the average player. There are 3 par fours of 400 + yards from these tees, but fairly wide, though tree-lined fairways are generally the norm. If your approach lands short – particularly on the opening holes, a bump and run chip from the level areas in front can often lead to a par save. The back nine is a bit more hilly, with elevated tees playing to raised greens often the case. Water comes into play on just four holes, but 44 sand bunkers, strategically placed greenside and along the fairways can cause some havoc. Most of the holes play fairly straight, with very gentle bends in either direction. On our visit, the fairways, tees, bunkers and greens were in fine shape. This layout can grow on a golfer, aesthetically and in the form of a challenge presented. It begins easily enough but offers more challenges as you get deeper into the round.

St Andrews # 1 Course
The St Andrews Course also features 4 sets of tees, measuring 6920 yards/124 slope, 6418 yards/120 slope, 5703 yards/112 slope for men and 121 slope for women, and 5116 yards with a slope of 114. Though the slope ratings are just a tad lower on the St Andrews layout, we both agreed that it seemed to be the more challenging of the two designs. Like Lakewood, the # 1 Course starts out with some simple green complexes with wide, level areas in front of and on the sides of the putting surfaces. As our round progressed however, we found that intricate greenside bunkering, raised putting complexes and numerous mounds made a good short game that much more necessary. There are four water holes – two on each side, and 46 high quality and mostly large sand bunkers. More doglegs are also worked into the design of the St Andrews # 1 layout, with about an equal number of left to right and right top left shot shapes required. The landscaping on this course also seemed a bit more pronounced, as manicured shrubbery and expertly arranged flower beds were abundant.
