Reviewed March 04, 2013

Played several times in 2012 and found it to be one of best maintained courses in the region. Course has a great layout with a mix of wooded holes and water typical of Northern Michigan but without a lot of blind shots and tricky holes. Greens are large and really roll well. Prices are lower than comparable courses in area. Given the scenery, condition, layout and price, it is a great value.

Reviewed July 12, 2008

Course is preparing to replace irrigation system in the fall, but, except for a very few water logged areas, one would not know there was an issue. The course is in very nice condition. Fairways are pretty open, but water, bunkers and OB do come into play quite often for very bad shots. A few holes with water will require precision. The greens are medium speed and seem to read more break than really exists. Nicely rolling fairways will give some uneven lies. A few blind shots keep things interesting as well. I'm not a beer drinker, but worth noting is that they do not sell beer and there is no beverage cart on the course. Overall very attractive and well maintained - definitely worth another trip.
