Excellent condition

The course is in excellent condition. Many times I’ve played there and the rough was to long. This course has a lot of beginners and having a unmanicured rough really slows the pace of play. Was done in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Played at 11:00.

Starter

Arrived 10 min before my tee time and was told my group had already gone off. “They were really busy” and they wanted push people off that showed up early. My group was in the fairway on 1 and I wasn’t allowed to hit off the tee as another group was “waiting”. Had to skip the first hole of a 9 hole course. Was told I could play the hole after I got through 9!? Because I want to play away from the clubhouse and then come back down 1? Never had this happen before. I should have at least been able to hit off the tee and catch up. Rest of the day was good and course is in decent shape.

Crisp April round

Beautiful vistas and sunrise over Lake Michigan. Nice newly sanded bunkers. Poor policing of beer cans and tees on the tee boxes.

Windy on the Lake

First time out for the season, course was clean, not much snow left except a touch in a few bunkers. Intake was a breeze, staff cordial.

Good local course in the city

Course is full size which is great for the city! Solid 9 hole course. No practice green area which is a little frustrating, and the greens were a bit bumpy. Other than that it was pleasantly well kept. Fairway was pretty firm for April, and tee bacons could be in better condition. A couple boxes it was hard to find a flat clean place to stand with how torn up they were.

It’s amazing how good of shape the course is in considering the amount of players they have each day. Pace of play if somewhat slow but that is expected. Awesome place to play.
