Course Reviews

This was one of the first northern Michigan resort courses and although it is very pretty to look at and the #6 par 3 is a very special hole to Michigan golf lore, it could use some improvement to make it more "playable" for the average golfer. First, there are no yardage markers other than the 150 post (you can rent a range finder for $5.00 from the clubhouse). Second, fairways are undulating and there is no first cut rough. Several times I hit, what I thought was a good tee shot only to be penalized for being in deep rough just off the fairway. And third, several shots to the greens are blind or partially blind. You may find yourself penalized for hitting a good shot only to find you hit into a trap or just off the green in the deep rough. And, if you are in a trap make sure you don't deface your club because of the several small stones.

I think a low handicap player may enjoy this course for the risk reward features. But if you are a mid to upper handicap player and decide to play this course here are my recommendations: First, do not play it during the busy season. The issues mentioned above do not lead to fast play. Our foursome waited every hole and spent 5:50 on a Saturday round in summer. Second, play with a GPS. Third, even with a GPS don't worry about your score. This is a course you need to play at least once before you learn its nuances. However, there are too many better choices at Treetops for your limited time and golf dollar to make this a priority to play.

Wow! Be prepared to hit every club in your bag. Multiple tees for different levels of golfers. Amazing greens. Beautiful views. Lots of risk / reward opportunities!
