Despite the name this course has not much to do with any of the three lakes it is located next to. There is not much water on the course either, it being more of an old-style parkland layout. The site is also quite undulated in parts and there is a good mix of short and long holes.
Conditioning could be better, though, and the playing areas are relatively tight throughout. Occasionally the player can feel somewhat restricted and strategic play is not the routing's strongest point. It does have championship qualities and can play quite slippery, so perhaps it is not the ideal choice for recreational golf. On the other hand there are some quality hole designs and fun shots to be found.
