According to the starter at Whispering Creek GC today, the Lakeside Golf Course complex was sold to the city in late 2018 to control the "Flooding" that has been happening in that area. This course was the first one designed by local resident Robert Beard (14 others) and his son Bud Beard was co-owner here when the last flood of 2018 made the final decision to close it down. Being a popular/inexpensive place to play was not the problem BUT the cost of downtime/repairs between floods was the final nail in the coffin.

I have been a member for several years. The course floods every year which closes the front nine which is adjacent to the river. This year it has taken several months to get back to normal. This is supposed to be the most played course in the area. The only negative is that there are no rangers and fivesomes and sixsomes are common thus bringing the pace of play to a standstill. The best thing is the price and the quality of people who work there. The back nine is only a par 35 due to 8 par fours and 1 par three. It is much more difficult than the front nine because a creek borders five holes and could come into play in two more. The 13th hole was ranked the 9th hardest in Allen County due to the creek on the left, out of bounds on the right, a tree blocking the dogleg left at 100 yards and a severely sloping green.
