We finally made the trek, last week, to the GN Lakes course. It's an absolutely fantastic layout with excellent conditions. Great value for the quality of golf. Unfortunately, it took five hours to complete the round. Marshals ineffective and just told us to hang in there. Would be 5 star overall if pace of play was better. Would I play again, definitely.

I played this course while visiting the area for Thanksgiving Holiday. I can only imagine how beutiful it must be in the summer. Absoulutely the best golf I have seen, difficult but not unplayable, just great in every aspect, and the fact it's a public course at a real bargain ($60 with cart when I was there) makes it an unbeatable value.
