amazing nine! beautiful course. 2 holes are gaurded w/ a valley. 4th hole par 3 there is about 10 ft of fairway before the green and then a valley that goes about 140 yds that dips about 60 ft from tee box to ground. 6th hole par 4 is also gaurded by an amazing valley.

Newst OCT nine a change of pace

Since opening about a decade ago, the Valley nine at Old Channel trail offers visitors to the Montague course a change of pace. Unlike the older nines, its not as wide open. After a dull, easy par 5 opener and a short par 3, the course begins winding through pine trees that guard the fairways. The design highlight is a series of ravines that run through the middle holes of the nine. From the blue and white tees, golfers must hit over the ravine to the large green at the signature par-3 fourth hole. Other holes call for shots over the ravine or provide steep dropoffs and big trouble for stray shots. In general, its recommended that more serious golfers play from the back tees as they make the layout more challenging and (more importantly) more interesting.

Overall, a nice nine, in spite of a couple dull holes. As with everything at Old Channel, its well-maintained, catches pleasant Lake Breezes and is playable for novices and low handicappers alike. Few moderately priced public courses have anything to compete with it.
