Comments: Shelbina is about 40 miles west of Hannibal just off of Highway 36. Lakeside Golf Course is a nice little 9 hole course in rural Missouri, with not a lot of bells and whistles or the trappings of a big-city country club. The course is actually not as easy as it looks: the fairways are wide open with very few hazards with which to be concerned BUT, the sloped greens are small with nary a straight putt; the greens are actually more difficult than many big-city country clubs. I will say, however, that the elevated greens do hold well if you are able to sharp shoot an approach shot to land on these postage-size dance floors. Since Shelbina Lakeside Golf Course is literally “the only game in town” I would definitely be a regular if I lived in the area but would certainly not make the trek from St. Louis just to play this course.
