Lakewood Golf Resort to expand to 18 holes and add RV spots

Construction on RV spots expected to start next spring and golf course in 2021

Red Deer County has approved Lakewood Golf Resort’s plan to add another nine holes and 70 RV spots.

The golf course just northeast of Sylvan Lake built 40 RV lots in 2017 and expanded with another 40 lots this year.

On Tuesday, the municipal planning commission approved additional lots and gave the green light to the golf course expansion.

Head pro Scott Bergdahl said work will likely begin on the RV lots next spring, and work on the golf course could begin in early 2021.

The expansion to 18 holes would be ready in the fall of 2022 at the soonest. That timetable is not set though, and they may opt to spread golf course construction over a longer period, said Bergdahl.

“We’re not sure if we will do it over a two-year period or a three-year period. That’s still left to be answered,” he said.

“It’s super exciting. With the economy being the way it is, people are not thinking this way.

“The golf world is losing rounds of golf rather than getting more golfers in. It’s in a bit of a decline.

“We’re very fortunate to be in this position to add a second nine.

“I think it’s going to be very exciting for our customers and our central Albertans to have something different.”

Bergdahl said they have already begun working on the design.

“It’s looking awesome.”
