Join us and discover our unique blend of relaxation and luxury.

Lakewood Club, the Granddaddy of Southern Courses

Marriott purchased the Point Clear facilities in September 1982, when they renovated the property, adding an additional 200 guest rooms. This expansion meant more golfers would be able to visit the resort.


In addition to the guest room expansion, nine more holes were designed over the old polo field, and the Pro Shop was redesigned and expanded. Those nine new holes, completed in the fall of 1986, featured expansive use of space and challenging holes with undulating greens, and an island hole. With this enhancement, Lakewood's course was brought to 36 holes and designated as one of Marriott's Golf Resorts. Lakewood now stands as the only golf course of this quality along the Eastern Region.


Celebrity golfers, such as Paul "Bear" Bryant, Bob Hope, and President Gerald Ford have played these courses. Historically rich and overflowing with hospitality, there is no doubt Lakewood is the granddaddy of Southern courses. Today Baldwin County boasts over a dozen golf courses, but Lakewood at The Grand was the area's first professional quality course.
