The Westlake Golf and Country Club is Smith Mountain Lake’s premier public golf course.

The Westlake includes a beautifully restored farmhouse that features a pro shop and a delightful restaurant. The Westlake carries the trademark touch of Russell Breeden, a Virginia native with nearly 100 course designs to his credit. The 6,511-yard course is challenging for players of all levels.
