i found this course to be an exceptional value and well maintained. I would urge eveyone to play this course when in the area.

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect (since I had heard it had just reopened in May after being closed in 2006). I went on Sept. 22nd, with a couple of my "golf snob" bud's. All of us were pleasantly surprised. The course and the greens looked great! We met one of the owners, who took time to explain (and even show us) all the work that had gone into restoring the place. Everything was green and freshly mowed; there were new signs, flags, benches, markers, etc. The carts are brand new and the clubhouse even looks new. The course is very playable, beautifully secluded, and very reasonably priced. There aren't a lot of signs; you have to watch for the entrance. I had locals to help me find it, but you just have to head south from Mackinaw on Nicolet/Old 31/M-108, watch for it on the right. It's about 3 miles out.

First some history on the course. This course went into bankruptcy in 2006, there are new owners now who are working hard at returning this club to it's old glory. What you will find is a GREAT layout, playability yet challenging, a basic clubhouse staffed with friendly people. It's a diamond in the rough and I am guessing that within three years this course is going to be a must play. My wife likes to golf some but not as much as I do. And what is great about the Mackinaw Club is that it is only three miles from downtown Mackinaw and about 100 shops and restaurants . . . after nine holes she shops and I golf!!! Also, the back nine is more wooded, more slopes, a greater challenge. The front nine is more open and fun to play.

Very bad greens and fairways, weeds and bare spots all over the green. Driving range doesn't even have mats
