Poor conditions and slow play

I was very disappointed. The round was very expensive. There were no carts available and so we missed our tee time waiting for a cart. The bunkers were in the worst condition of any course I’ve ever played (except for the Bear which is on the same property and has the same terrible bunker conditions. We sat behind golfers who were very slow and clearly don’t play much which meant for a very very slow and long round. If you rate the course based on price per hour then it was a good value I guess.

GTR's most fun course

I played the Wolverine the day after getting beat up by The Bear, and what a difference it made with my post-round mood. Shooting 83 is so much more enjoyable than struggling to 96.
The Wolverine still has its challenges. The elevation changes are more dynamic than The Bear. The greens and bunkering remain plenty demanding. The first time I played it, I didn't appreciate its beauty. Now I do. It's my favorite course at GTR.

Nice value

We played in the afternoon when prices were lower. The course was in great shape, the greens were very receptive and true and bunkers had plenty of sand. Pace of play was a little slow on the front nine but then two of the groups in front of us only played nine which allowed us to fly on the back nine. So our entire time was played in sub-4 hours.

Enjoyed the course. Nice layout. You can tell course is getting a lot of traffic as tee boxes have a lot of divots. Great value overall. Highly recommend!

Lovely Experience

Wolverine is a lovely course. It definitely doesn’t have the teeth of its next door neighbor known as “The Bear” but it’s still a good test and a great golf course. The course was in magnificent condition. We played it twice while at Grand Traverse, and both times were a lot of fun. The staff told us that you can normally get quite a bit of rollout on the course, but it rained a lot while we were there, so it was definitely target golf. The fairways are gigantic, with subtle rolls throughout. A shot in the middle of the fairway may be way above or below your feet. The greens are fast and firm out pretty quick. Lots of risk reward type holes where you can take out the dog leg and leave a short iron or wedge into the green. Overall it was a lovely experience!

Ranger Rick

The course was beautiful and my wife commented how nice the fairways and greens were. We ran into some slow play right before it rained and the golf course assistant was quite helpful in telling them to get moving and later found out they were employees but we finished just as the rain started and ended up leaving both our water bottles by the bag drop. Highly recommend this course and next time we will try the Bear course.
