The Lakes at Laura Walker
In the Laura S. Walker State Park, The Lakes 18-hole golf course is nine miles from Waycross, and so close to the Okefenokee Swamp that an occasional alligator may stroll across the fairway.
The course incorporates the natural beauty of the park by using native sand for the many traps and waste areas throughout its 6,595 yards.
Course rating is 71.9
Slope rating of 122 on grass.
Designed by Stephen Burns, ASGCA, The Lakes golf course opened in 1995. Greens are undulating rather than tiered. Each par 72 fairway and landing area is defined with gentle, links-style mounds that accent the course’s three large lakes. The course is well-rated by its patrons who appreciate its course challenges, well-maintained condition and its serenity, with no nearby houses or road noise to distract the golfer; “just the whisper of the wind through the pine trees.”
The full-service golf shop offers golf accessories, group/individual lessons (with advance appointment), and a snack bar.
Play all day from 7a.m. to 7p.m. Hours may vary according to season.
Open daily except Christmas Day.
Gather your foursome or come alone to practice your swing on our 40-tee driving range. Either way, you’ll enjoy a great day on the links at The Lakes!
