excellent shape from tee box to green

excellent condition although greens were a little slow having been dressed. Only wildlife observed was one red fox. had not played in 2 years and enjoyed immensely.i agree carts could use sand.

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.

I made a good choice with this course. I loved the layout and the elevation changes. Beautiful course. Can't think of a negative so good in my books. It was a very cool with some rain at the end of the round but had the course to myself pretty much. It was a cold Tuesday midday tee time and I got there early and they let me go off alone.

Gem in the Woods

This is a beautiful championship style course located just outside of Shanty Creek resort. If you visit the area, you won’t find a better course for the money. The course is challenging without being unfair. Along with many of the other courses in the area, the scenery alone is worth the price of the round. You won’t be disappointed with your day here.

pretty simple course to work on your game

not a course you would go to play if you are looking for 4 star.
It is good for working on your game.. they are very friendly here
Greens were crazy slow but it had rained the night before so that may have contributed to it.
