Affordable, well-maintained, “up-north” beauty.
Wonderful experience. Course very well groomed. Greens manicured and great shape. Quiet golf experience cut out of woods. Each hole different. Wide fairways, no bunker blocking run-up to greens. Very friendly staff/cart crew. Food is very good and dining overlooks a well- bunkered green, making for interesting dining/beverage viewing. 10 minute tee times - no crowding on course. Water adds beauty on two to three holes. Four tees with fair/generous separation. This is our”go-to” course east of Traverse City.
My wife and I enjoyed our first time experience of playing Indian River and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the pro shop to the starter, the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The course is an old school layout and in excellent condition. Holes are challenging yet fair. We will be back!
One of our favorites
Loved the flower gardens that membership had worked on, was my wife’s comment
Played on a perfect morning. Staff was friendly in the parking lot, brought a cart to my car to help load the bag. Pace of play was very slow. We were stuck behind a group of older gentlemen, who refused to let us play through. No ranger to be found to speed up play. Conditions were good, but there are better to be found. Greens were in great shape, but very slow. Cool layout where the older original holes were mixed in with the second 9. Overall its a good course, but here are much better in the Mecca.
This was good from moment we arrived. Picked up and put carts on cart. Inside, they reduced rate because season had changed. Very nice of them. Starter asked us about skill level, told us to feel free to play second ball.
First couple of holes are easier than rest of course. I wasn’t driving as far as I should and had longer second shots than I should. My wife loves the course because of the yellow, advanced tees. . We met club member who was attending to a garden on course and she told us she had promoted those tees . Thank you fellow Spartan !
Nice views from the 17th hole. Two playable par fives with approaches over the water are fun holes
Very nice and we will be back
Great day for golf!
We were staying at a cottage on Burt Lake for the week and the course was nearby. We were first off in the morning... just us and the deer. We finished in about 2 and a half hours. Thank you, Golf Now! It was a great time out there! I think it's one of the nicer courses in Northern Michigan! They also have a great pro shop and restaurant/bar.
As soon as we walked into the proshop area we overhear some lady in her office making fun of guests and apparently laughing about some boss of hers or president at the golf course. Saying very nasty things it went on for about 5 minutes . We knock on the door and she rudely says what do you want. . Well we were interested in becoming members, and the costs associated with it. This lady, I think her name was Pat or Pam pipps or something like that said oh I don't have time for this and proceeded to rush us out the door as we were leaving we heard some very rude comments and profanity underneath her breath needless to say. A return visit is not in our future or anyone from are golf league again.. That is a shame we have played that course before and it's very lovely. We were shocked and amazed how someone could treat us that badly. And if she is reading this or someone does shame on you. No one deserves to be treated like that.
Great place to spend a day
Terrific golf course in wonderful condition. The layout is sneaky hard and requires all the shots. Staff is friendly. Beautiful range for practice
Clubhouse is inviting and the food and beverages were excellent.
Semi private club--if I lived closer I would join tomorrow!
Great Old Club, Can't miss this one
A great old club, this club is one to play. Walked it in the fall. Gentle rolling terrain. Staff was friendly. The Greenside Grille had great food and the members I meet were fun!
Play this place
Greens were in perfect condition - many blind shots for first time player to this course - wish I lived in range of this place.
This was my first visit to this course and what a delight it was.
I booked via Golf Now and the check in process was quick and simple. Steve in the pro shop was helpful and quick.
The starter was very knowledgeable and gave a few pointers for some of the holes.
The course itself was in good condition with a few patches on the greens......but this did not effect my enjoyment.
I will be back to play next time i am in the area and would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting a pleasant day out.
Good course for the green fees
Nice course for the up noth feel. Very friendly staff.
The course is an Up North beauty!
We played after a day of heavy rains so there were some soggy spots but overall the course was very playable and very pleasing to the eye! We arrived early and pro shop attendant (Steve) allowed us to start ahead of a large group. We had clear sailing and a great experience ! I'll play there again.
This course was fun. Not overly difficult or long. Played front nine with some locals and they were very friendly. Played back alone. Want to come back next time I'm up north.
One for the "TO DO" list.
Friendliest course yet. Good condition. Very well marked. Good food.
