Tee times

Pace of play and tight tee times are rough. Last two times golfing my group is ready to tee off on time and there's been 2 groups still on our tee box. Took 5 hours to golf 18 holes with only 2 people

A lot of fun

The course is difficult if you spray or don’t have your A game. We did get behind a slower group and the ranger did move them along to help with pace of play. It was a great round all in all day too.

Grass Clippings All over

Paying nearly $70 to play a course that they say is in great shape, the cups were chewed and beat up especially for a Sunday 10am round. Biggest thing for me is that the guys cutting the greens were dumping piles of grass clippings and plugs all over the surrounding collar of the greens. Course setup poor. One last comment, cutting a cup 3 feet from the edge of the green shows the ignorance of the grounds staff.

This place is awesome

The title says it all. I played this course on Monday 8/1. It was the first time I’ve played here and it was well worth the 45 minute drive it took to get there. The course is in excellent shape. The greens were immaculate and the tee boxes were excellent. The fairways were well defined and in awesome condition. My one and only complaint was there was no beverage cart. If you like your golf courses well maintained with nice scenery and lots of water then this is the course for you. They have 5 sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels. I will play this course again!

Aaron, thank you so much for your review. The course is in excellent shape. Sorry about the bev cart, it starts around 3pm for the leagues. We were just awarded the #1 Golf Course in Blue Water Area and we will know this week if we are #1 in Metro Detroit. Fingers crossed. Thanks again

Web Price and Actual Paid Price Differ (Multiple Times)

This course is charging more than what you reserve the tee time for online. Always the same guy in the clubhouse stating that the rate is more than what your reservation says. He knows that if you drove all that way, paying 5 or 10 dollars more than what you thought it not going to turn most people away. So he knows that raising the price at the counter is just putting money into their pocket.
Other than he terrible behavior, I have no issues about this course at all.
If you can actually PAY online and not have to pay at the pro shop, that would be the only way I would come close to taking a chance to go there.
Too bad, its a nice course, just the pro shop dude needs to go.

So nice ....and somewhat naughty.

Forced carry on the first hole, so be ready to play! Overall conditions are wonderful. Greens and tees are in excellent shape and constantly maintained. Once you play here you will want to come back.

Awesome course

Played later in the day - started at 4pm on Sunday and not sure we could of had a better round.

No one on the course and it was up kept beautifully.

Only one complaint - when we made the turn around 6pm the kitchen was closed and no bartender to restock up the drinks.

Other then that - just an awesome place to play golf

Kfiott13, thank you so much for your kind review. FYI, our pro shop staff is able to get drinks once the restaurant is closed. Glad you had a great time and the course is in the best shape ever.

jhuyghe90, we would love to understand the low ratings for course condition and value. The course is in the best shape ever and there isn't another course in this good of shape for the price. Can you please reach out and explain as we would like to know what we need to do to improve. See other reviewers comments on condition and value.

Solitude is one of my favorites

The course was immaculate, the greens ran true, and the water attracted many balls.
Bring extra balls before playing this course
