A beautiful course in great condition, nice variety of holes, plenty of traps, mounds, tall grass, some trees. A cart is almost necessary, as there are some long treks between holes in several places. Great practice area with the rare sand trap / pitching practice area, in addition to the largest driving range tee I've ever seen (so you don't have to hit out of someone else's divots), and a nice practice putting green.

Well maintained course, but playing so close to 196 is a drag. Still though, excellent conditioned greens and fairways, definelty a place to put some good scores up. Nice Arthur Hills track, but no where near what he did at Red Hawk in East Tawas.

Very playable, very enjoyable. If windy, would play 5 strokes tougher.

Great course. Wide fairways make the course enjoyable for all levels. GPS system is outstanding - touch screen gives you exact distance for layups along with the distance for your next shot. No problems with pace of play.

Great looking course, has some very unforgiving waste areas and bunkers. Wide fairways make help out for the lesser skilled on some holes, but there is still plenty for risk takers, like the 286 yard par 4 #11, with a v shaped fairway temping some to try a shortcut over a huge waste area, or the par 5 dog leg right #2 with a similar temptation off of the tee ending with a green on a plateau. Practice area is huge. The staff was great, they had a cart at our car before we had our bags out of the trunk.

Fine layout; but maintenance, especially of greens, and pace of play hurt the experience.

Greens show multiple types of grass, many ball marks. Play is slow because marshal is unable or unwilling to push those overwhelmed by the course. Should be great place; but management issues are obvious.
