Grounds crew always seem to be mowing the fairway you are on, even in the afternoons. Lots of walkers that hold up faster players in carts, pretty safe to assume most of them are the ferris pgm kids that seem to think they own the course or at least that is how they act. There should be a starter or ranger of some kind that is not a pgm student to keep play moving, and make sure people making the turn are able to play through groups that are just playing 9.

A great little golf course and home to the Ferris State Bulldogs. This course plays quite long from the back tees (about 7100 yards). It's in good shape overall and the greens are some of the best I've seen. Plenty of trees and water to deal with, but it's all in good fun though.
