Really good course. The layout is great and so are conditions. Big greens and strategic bunkers on a walkable Jerry/Bruce Matthews design. It's a pleasant treat in the small town of Belding.

My wife and I had a great time here last spring. Stayed the night in the newly remodeled hotel and played golf. The newly remodeled restaurant was also very impressive. One of the best things of the entire stay was the friendly staff. The new owners have stuck a lot of money in this place inside and out and it shows! Would recommend a stay and play anytime!

PS Not sure what is up with the rating system as its seems messed up. I gave this place a 4 1/2 stars.....only wish is they would run more stay and play deals.
