Hidden Gem

I was visiting from Florida and wanted to get in a couple of rounds. The recent reviews were good so we decided to give it a try. The new owners have done a great job of renovating what, I am told, was a pretty tired course a few years ago. Teeboxes were great. The fairway was lush and well manicured. The greens were pristine, rolled true and were challenging. My brother in law who played with me is a local and hasn't played this course in years due to past conditions. He was very surprised at the improvement and said this is going to be a regular stop on his rotation. This place needs to get the word out. It's as nice a course as I have played in the last couple of years.

A nice surprise

My wife an I got out of the house on this sunny day, we took a nice drive down back roads for just over an hour to get to the course. We weren’t expecting much considering the price, but we were pleasantly surprised. The front nine is very open and the back nine is mostly in the woods, conditions were great, we found out the course is owned by the same people the own the Chief, we will be back.

Nice Summer Round

Greens were in good shape. Tight fairways, the rough was long and lush. Would suggest expanding width of fairways and good 1/2 inch lower rough.

Course in good shape but you could lose balls off the fairway specifically on 1-9.

Course maintenance people very golfer friendly.

Great Value!

This is my favorite course to golf. It’s great for beginners yet still has challenges, especially on the back 9. Only downside, is the greens are a little slow, but you get used to them as you play. Great value for the course!

Course Improving

Greens very slow - needs closer cut - but fair once you figure the speed. Fairways good shape but "second" cut needs to be cut - a little high. Looks like they will have a very nice outside eating area and restaurant due to open tomorrow - 26 May.

Awesome course for the price

For $20 I played 9 holes with cart and brought my wife with me to ride along for no extra charge. The staff was extremely friendly and the course was in pretty good shape for being so early in the season. We are from the lower part of the state and the owner recommended a great place to eat after the round and let my father-in-law even rent clubs and bring his wife for the same $20 rate. This course isn’t Grand Traverse Resort by any means but I cannot say enough good things about this place. I will definitely play it again when I am up in the area in the future. There were some nice woodsy holes and well kept fairways and greens
