Lakewood Country Club

FOUNDED IN 1912

Lakewood Country Club featured a graceful three-story clubhouse overlooking a woodland that rolled and tumbled pleasantly over a fast growing East Dallas neighborhood. The Club's founding fathers knew the land at the corner of Gaston and Abrams would be an ideal location for Dallas' second 18-hole golf course.

TODAY

Lakewood Country Club is the cornerstone of the neighborhood. A private, full service, family oriented, Club dedicated to providing Members with superb service, an array of recreational facilities and an ideal venue for social connection. Lakewood features an 18-hole golf course, 8 1/2 tennis courts, three swimming pools, a fitness center and a variety of Club events and dining options.
