Nice City Course

Had a lot of fun but got delayed for frost advisory. I had to wait an hour no big deal the starter advised may times it was cart path only. Several times in fact , however the teenage ranger should not cut across fairways to see if we are staying off the fairways. Other than that great course will be back

Wolverine introduction to Champions

Brought two Wolverines for their first visit to Champions. The course was in great shape and provided a great challenge to us seniors, as always, and definitely to two Michigan transplants on their first visit to Champions. The course did not disappoint. We had a great experience at this great course, very challenging, and was in great condition. Thanks!

Champions

Pace of play was poor, cost was high for an end of the day tee time that didn’t allow for a complete 18, and greens were aerated. Great track not a great deal for the time and circumstances.

Miserable pace

Awesome course greens are in fantastic shape. Pace of play was a nightmare. Two singles held up the entire course on top of showing up late for their tee time. The starter thought this was going to be an issue however we never saw a ranger the rest of the day.

Not worth the money

This course isn’t what it used to be. The course is very poorly taken care of. Looked like the rough hadn’t been mowed all summer - shots right off the fairway get lost in it. The fairways had dirt patches everywhere and the greens were patchy as well. Wouldn’t recommend this course for the price. Check out a different city course if you have the option.
