A Gem

A first time at a new “old course” can be difficult to find your way and safe to say, it was.
This course is designed to test all aspects of patience and performance. It does both.
We picked a perfect fall day (end September) to play it in the afternoon. (24C and no wind)
Although the area was hit hard with recent tornadoes, many trees down and storms delivering unreasonable amounts of rain during last several weeks, the course stands tall.
An outstanding afternoon enjoyed on Lake Huron

More Food and More Marshals

Pace of play was very slow based on a number of golfers new to the game on the course. Marshals could be more visible to help speed it up play when needed. It makes it tough to enjoy your day at an ultra slow pace. 7 hour round.

Needs Help

I think this place is going downhill as the fairways are in bad shape, the bunkers are growing weeds, the driving range is defunct. It has a decent layout but it is just not being maintained.
The greens are still in decent shape, but that about the extent of nice features of this course.

Great greens

This used to be one of the premier courses in the area. Due to tough economic times the maintenance has been slipping so some fairway conditions are no longer prime. The greens however are as nice as always and make the course enjoyable.
Very good deal at the golfnow special rate.
