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

Beautiful and spacious

Beautiful setting, nicely manicured fairways and greens. Not overly challenging but definitely a beautiful place to play in the fall.

Great course with hot deal

My wife and I wanted to go to Short's for lunch and found this course nearby on the way from Traverse City. Was $50 for the two of us to play 9 and we were happy with the overall course design, views and maintenance. The only thing I thought was weird was the greens had sand on them, but that could be a West Michigan challenge with soil.

Met expectations for value we got!

Very Much Improved Course

Played this course many years ago and I can tell you it's condition is very much improved. The fairways are good and the greens are a little slow but true. The front 9 is different than the back - on the back, you have to keep it between the trees and you'll do fine.

Pleasant Surprise!

We've played this course many times in the last 25 years. In recent years, with ownership changes, conditions had deteriorated and play was not a pleasant experience. With the new ownership, improvements have been dramatic compared to a couple of years ago. Greens are very nice. Fairways and rough watered and very playable. Compared to other courses in the area, for our game, it's a gem! Low handicappers may pass on it, but for the average golfer, it's plenty challenging. And, the food and beer at Gabby's (restaurant on the course) make for a great afterglow! The view from the deck is probably better than any course in the area. Thank you to the Blue Pelican family for rescuing and resurrecting this gem!

Very enjoyable course.

What a nice course. Very good condition. You can make it as hard as you want, just pick a different tee box.
