LakeLand Village set to open new housing section in spring

Updated: June 6, 2018

The vibrant housing community known as LakeLand Village, located in Allyn, is the only Washington residential community that offers 27 holes of golf. The village has expanded with a new section of home sites, which opened this spring.

The latest expansion, called The Ranch at LakeLand Village, is adjacent to the newest course, Generation III, with 25 new home sites, eight of which are on the first fairway. There are 5 homes currently under construction that will be available in June.

The residents at LakeLand enjoy a variety of niceties like a lakefront bistro restaurant, a stocked 50-acre lake for year round fishing, several miles of quiet streets for walking or bike riding and of course some of the best golf found in the state.

Virgil Anderson, the founder of LakeLand Village designed and built the first nine holes in 1972. Renowned golf architect, Bunny Mason, designed the second and third nine-hole courses with the third course opening in 1997. Virgil’s sons, Bob and Don Anderson took over the operation before passing the job to their sons, Rick and Steve who now oversee the development. Hence the three nine-hole courses being called Generation I, II and III.

The shortest, and tightest course is Generation I. Similar but longer, Generation II also requires golfers to navigate tall tree-lined fairways, some water hazards and strategically placed bunkers. The newest nine, Generation III is more open but longer and has bigger greens, but like the other nines, the fairways are lined with trees and well-placed bunkers.
