Lakepoint Golf & Country Club is located on a peninsula that juts out into Charlie Lake, just a couple of kilometres north of the Alaska Highway from Fort St. John. It’s not known who designed the original 9-hole course back in the late 1950s but we’re told Norman Woods fashioned the 18-hole layout that’s in play today.
Lakepoint’s tree-lined fairways are arranged as two returning 9-hole loops, each playing to a par of 36, with a combined distance of 6,779 yards. Unfortunately, the only holes that actually touch the lake are the opening par five 1st and par four 2nd, though the green for the par three 5th also gets pretty close to the water’s edge.Highlight holes include the par four 6th (rated stroke index 1) and the shortest of the four par threes at the 150-yard 7th. On the back nine, both par fives at the 12th and 17th are really tough holes, doglegging to the right from tee to green, while the 406-yard 18th concludes the round in fine style, with the home green located close to the 9th green beside the clubhouse.
