Fast greens and lots of ball marks

I really don’t think you need to have your greens as fast as they played. That being said, people please fix your ball marks. There were dozens of old marks that would take a long rime to heal if I wasn’t there fixing them.

Impressive to even the longtime golfers

Can’t say enough about the course- clean, well taken care of, challenging holes, easy to navigate. Some water, some sand traps, moderately challenging as well. Wonderful modern carts and even the Red Rock Grille had great food options at fair price. Will definitely go again!

Wet weather
Used cart

Oh my goodness it rained

Wife and I snuck in an afternoon 9 holes before Saturday night festivities and add this course to your list if it rains in the spring. The tall heather grass isn't grown up yet so you can spray the ball all over the place and still find and play it out which was awesome for the 1st round of the year. Most of the couples out on the course came driving in once the rain started which greatly improved the pace of play. It never rained hard enough to even feel wet but wife had the rain coat and a weatherproof blanket on in the cart and I kept feeding her High Noon Peach and she was happy to keep on, keeping on.
Course was in good shape for spring but very hard, this was first rain in awhile and they vericut the fairways recently so it was hard and rolling. I get lost in holes 4 thru 6 - very similar and the blind tee shots aren't the best. Love that par 3 3rd w/ all the sand around it. Good hole. It's a nice place, clubhouse is obnoxiously big, like in your face big but go play here, good test.

Gorgeous course

First time ever playing this course. The carts were very nice with comfy seats and GPS. The course layout was easy to figure out. Would definitely play again when I come back into town.

Good

Still early in the year so hasn’t fully taken shape yet. Great layout and great clubhouse with amenities, normally close to a 5 star but maybe in about another month or so

Standard country club course, boring layout

Perfectly fine golf course which was in great condition. But, a fairly boring layout across flat, treeless farmland with no signature holes that could have been located in any subdivision in America. It's worth playing if you get a good deal, but has none of the "Pure Michigan" golf characteristics you'll see at nearby Diamond Springs or Ravines.
