The course has definately improved fom the dandilions that use to compete with the grass near the pins. I hope they continue the improvements then I might go back.

If a course could have a makeover, this one has. The fairways are green and weed free, the greens are very receptive, the rough is cut and can be tough to play out of (it is rough, afterall). With all of the courses in the area, this one is a hidden gem.

What a challenge

From the back deck this is a beast. Greens roll great, fairways are defined and in good shape. This is one of the best values in Michgan.
