Typical blue-collar venue with only a few truly challenging holes (#9 & #16), but generally well-maintained with surprisingly quirky, undulating greens. Turf on right side of fairway on #9 is always soggy - spray from the fountain in the nearby lake drifts on the surface all day long. Makes for an unfair 2nd shot condition into the course's most difficult signature hole. Overall a good value & challenge for the average golfer.

Be wary of the ill-mannered & inhospitable clerk behind the counter in the pro shop (clerk #11 as identified on my pay receipt). One of the most discourteous, gruff & surly individuals I've come across in a long time (and I've been around a long time). Must be a friend or relative of one of the owners as any self-respecting hiring manager would perceive that this old bozo clearly is a poor fit for customer service work. His demeanor is blatantly off-setting and can be enough to spoil the rest of your day.

He overcharged me on my first visit. On the second visit, he tried it again & I challenged him on it. He became very combative & argumentative claiming that the quoted rate was for weekday, that the web site had erroneous information, the web site was for the old Liberty course....excuse after excuse. When I offered to produce a current copy of the rates as published on the Fountains website (which I happened to have in my back pocket), he immediately backed off.

If it wasn't for this very negative initial contact, my overall rating would be higher. Outstanding customer service is crucial to
building and maintaining a healthy business.
2 stars deducted for unfriendly staff.

Surprising Find

Fairways are tight with plenty of trees, marsh, & water. Definitely stay in the fairway. The rough can be monstrous. Course is in great condition and plays well, with enough difficulty to make it challenging. Clubhouse is spectacular for a public course.

Clarkston Michigan Banquet - Michigan Golf | Liberty Golf & Banquet - Great Place

I've attended this place several times now. They have a great 18 hole golf course, that is not too difficult.

Their food is awesome.

Banquet facilities are great with lots of space, they specialize in weddings and golf outings.

I highy recommend Liberty Golf & Banquet http://www.libertygolfclub.net.
