Player friendly, fun course

Fun course for all levels. The course was in great condition, greens smooth and rolling true. Plenty of room to drive the ball and not over-penalizing. Practice range and putting/chipping area are expansive. Staff very friendly. Food options decent, but only tried the hot dog (very good). Only a small bathroom, but that’s not why you’re there. I played with my son on a day without a lot of players. We finished in 3.5 hours, but hit multiple practice drives and pitches while we played. No waiting at all for us that day. When you walk off the course, you feel like you’ve been challenged and had fun, but not beat down.

We could only play 10 holes before a major rainstorm started. The golf pro said i could get a raincheck by contacting GolfNow. Can you help me?

No Longer Recommended - Ridiculously Slow Play

I've played Sundance since it opened in 2005. We teed off prior to 11am on a Thursday morning and were charged $109. What a complete ripoff. On an abnormally cold damp/wet morning our round took FIVE HOURS AND FOURTY MINUTES!!! We easily finished as a six-some on 18 and probably should have a played as a six-some the entire back nine. Several in our small group will have had it with A-ga-ming Sundance or Torch and will vote to not play here again next year.

Management has never enforced a pace of play and the with length of our most experience they should be embarrassed and absolutely deserve this scathing review 100pct. In fact I'm here to say I submitted a review a week ago.....and it was never posted (gee I wonder why????) There were 3 foursome ahead of us that morning that screwed every golfer the entire rest of the day that teed off after them.

As far as the course - due to the lack of rain there are several areas of fairways which are extremely wet and over watered. Sand traps are hit and miss....there were a couple that proudly showed their ripped black under liners. They had a "tractor" maintaining the waste area bunkers between the 12th and 14th holes. The result - a huge muddy ridged mess that enabled one of those slow playing foursomes to make the round even longer. They took over 21 MINUTES to play the 14th with absolutely no one in front of them.....(while we stood on the 12th tee the entire time observing them). Greens were in good shape. The fringes and roughs around greens from 2 to 5 yards are a confounding ridiculous mess of 3 different lengths and types of grasses - you're 3 feet off the green and those types of conditions warrant a charge of over $100 on a weekday??? With an extra charge for range balls? Please.

They built a new clubhouse for the two courses a couple of years ago. It's a clunky layout at best...there are steps up everywhere just to get in.....incredibly poor design and just one smelly head in the men's room for two courses? Again ridiculous - beverages are also overpriced.

A-ga-ming's Sundance and Torch courses have lost my longtime annual visits and business. They simply don't care and there are plenty of other courses in the area we can play for far less that are just as an enjoyable and appreciate our business.

We played the Torch course the next day. I also reviewed that last week and that review wasn't posted. I will type up another one.....

Really Fun Course

We took a buddies trip to A Ga Ming and played Sundance and Torch. Everybody in our group preferred Sundance by a significant margin. The layout was fun and the course was in really good shape. It is a really good course that is challenging enough, but is also very playable. We were there in mid-May and the greens were perfect and had not been aerated like Torch had been. The consensus was to play Sundance twice if we went back.

Somewhere there is a desert missing its sand.

I like to play this course a couple time per season, so I don't get over confident about my golf skills. As a senior, I find this course to be challenging. There is a fair amount of up hill and down hill walking between the cart path and the greens on some of the holes. The last time I played, the pin positions were made as difficult as possible - what you would expect on Sunday dring a professional golf tournament. The large, undulating greens roll true and very fast. There is little water but many sand bunkers on this beautifully maintained course. The fairways are wide and (to me) feel longer than they actually are.

Sundance on 10/5 and play again on 10/9

Sundance is in very nice shape and good place to get in a round or two when visiting Northern Michigan. The new clubhouse finally opened just after my 2021 June trip there. Clubhouse is okay but for some reason it still feels like you are checking in at the trailer they had for far too long. It also never ceases to amaze me the complete lack of forethought when designing a new golf clubhouse Slippery stone steps to navigate up and down to get food and beverage at the turn? Check. Clubhouse bathroom with only one urinal and only one stall so you probably have to wait?? Check. I hear the pizza is decent but didn't smell or see anyone eating pizza both days I was there. A well designed fun to play course with lots of sand traps. We enjoyed really good pace with our week day round. Unfortunately pace of our Saturday afternoon round was painfully slow due to several groups of golfers in front of us playing a scramble format -they took forever on the back nine. Highly recommend Sundance but play it during the week to avoid large group nonsense in front of you as we've found weekend rounds over the years to be painfully slow pace wise. The Torch Course also on site is worth a play...old school with a number of quirky holes.
