Vacationing

Got a good GolfNow deal so took the long drive out to this course. Happy we did! Got paired up with a super nice couple which made round very enjoyable. Course is in excellent shape and layout was beautiful. We didn't have our A game today, but that happens. Putting was challenging Still enjoyed the course and staff was super friendly. Would highly recommend this course.

Great course. Ranger not so much.

Love the course. It’s excellent shape. Our group stopped for a hot dog at the turn and was harassed by the ranger for eating before continuing on to 10. Despite still being 8 minutes ahead of pace (according to the cart) after eating the ranger still threatened to not let us back out on 10. We ignored him and teed off anyway and never saw a group behind us the entire back 9.

I’m all for pace of play but this felt like unnecessary rudeness.

Beautiful Day

Caught a great price on tee-off. Course was in ok condition. I think we've had a lot of rain here or it's being overwatered. Greens were true but slow. Lots of ball marks. Waited every tee 15-20 minutes. 4.5 hour round. I'd play it again for the rate I received from tee-off.

Excellent layout. Great variety.

This was the first time playing Black Lake Golf Club. I definitely be back! Quality layout with great variety. My only minor complaint is that players need to replace divots and add sand. Not a complaint of the course but of players who need to take an extra minute to sustain the beauty of this top quality northern Michigan golf course.
