Great course

It's a fantastic golf course. It was a bit slow, 5 hours.

Nice!

Staying at the nearby Soaring Eagle Casino, the location was ideal. First time playing this course. Very nice layout with par 4s that are distinct. Excellent conditions. Bent grass fairways. Greens very good, leaning toward fast with tricky undulations but fair. Fairways tend toward narrow If you spray your drive, you will be exceedingly unhappy as holes are cut through the woods, at least on the front. Back is a little more open. I would rate this as a good walking course though the hike on 17 and 18 is a bit long. Round was 4.5 hours following a scramble outing. ( the group in front of me was terrible. They were at least 10 over.) I would definitely play again at $85.

Pretty great

Excellent course, sucks that the carts won't let you actually manoeuvre around the course to retrieve balls

Awesome track!

This course has lots of water on the front nine holes and it is a lot of fun. Bring your driver and make sure you can hit it where you wanted to go. Long par three on the front nine. If it’s windy this course is very tricky. Only played nine holes because we played twilight after work. It was my birthday and what a treat discourse was. The greens are fast and the layout is superb. I shot a 46 in my body shot a 43.

Favorite course in mid-Michigan

I think you could argue $70 is the best deal in the state, and that includes a good amount of range balls for free. Bucks Run is a very playable course for higher handicap players and I think it’s a great time for large groups of players. The greens run fast but I thought they held approach shots well. Great mix of holes to start as the first hole is pretty easy but the second is probably the most difficult hole on the course. Only complaint is I thought the beer selection on the beverage cart was average and they didn’t have any seltzer’s.

Pure!

WOW! This place was an add on to a Tullymore/Forest Dunes trip and it knocked it out of the park! It was in OUTSTANDING condition and the layout was amazing! the greens rolled fast and true and if Im honest it was better conditioned than Tullymore by far! Cant recommend this place enough.

Easily worth double what we paid.

From the tee boxes to the fairways to the green. Perfect.

Do not pass on playing Bucks Run

Course would not honor this purchase!

I bought a ridiculously cheap round that was advertised on GolfNow but the course would not honor it because golfnow screwed up the rates. Not happy!!! I understand that it did seem a little cheap but why is that my problem I just thought perhaps it was a hot special deal!

Best in Mid Michigan

I grew up in Mid Michigan, and wish I would have found this place sooner. This is a course you would expect to find closer to Gaylord. Perfectly manicured course with quick greens. A great test of golf. If the wind is up, this course can be a bear. I will definitely play again.

Best Course in Michigan!

Hard to believe this beautiful course really exists, albeit in the middle of nowhere, and at such a reasonable price. There are a lot of great courses in Mi., but this one never gets old. The natural beauty (no houses on the course), the challenging layout, and the customer service make this a must play. I would stack it up against the best in The state!!!!!

BEST Course in Mid Michigan

This is by far the best course in mid michigan, if not top in the state. They have EXCELLENT burgers if you are hungry. The fairways are nice and soft, very well maintained. You almost feel bad driving on them. Challenging but fun. Would 100% recommend this. If you go after 4PM during the week andn placy 9 it is $25.
