Great Course, Slow Greens

Great course. Very challenging. My only complaint is the greens were slow. I was told that they were shutting the course down to fix the greens and bunkers.

Beautiful

The course is spectacular with breathtaking views Enough tees for every skill level and a good pace of play. Better signage would help in going from hole to hole, especially if you are not familiar with the course.

Great course with Beautiful Views

The course is beautiful, heavily wooded course with rolling hills and some severe elevation changes that made the course fun to play. It was in great shape and the service was very good. One of the best values in the area, I highly recommend this course!

Another Northern Michigan Gem!!

Very good layout with mix of longer and shorter par 3s, 4s and 5s.

Tees and fairways were very good, only suggestion would be to add divot mix to the carts.

Greens were cut but not fast.

The bunkers and the surrounding area need work.

Pro Shop a bit light on inventory, but that could be due to recent sale of the course.

FYI due to recent sale no booze currently, no big deal to me but for those planning an outing it could matter.

Northern Michigan Gem

Very nice layout in good condition. Tee boxes and fairways close to perfect. Adding divot mix to the carts would be a good idea. Greens cut but not fast. Bunkers and areas around them need some work. Pro Shop poorly stocked but that could be due recent sale.

FYI no liquor sales yet due to recent sale of the course, awaiting transfer to new ownership.

Last thing was that I called to use my First Tee of Michigan discount and was told they were not partnering up players due to Covid yet I was allowed to book a single with an existing twosome on Golfnow.
