This course was great

The fairways were the best we have played this year. Greens ran true. We are making plans to come back next year.

Not worth the money

The conditions of this course for the price paid (even with discount booked via golfnow) were not in alignment. Not as well maintained as would be expected for a resort course that touts itself as a premeire layout in the area. Sand traps were filled with water and rocks with no sand. weeds prevalent in the rough and in the fairway. alot better courses in the area for better price

Slow round

The front 9 was good and it is a pretty course. Not hard. You can get into trouble but still make a good score. We ended up quitting before 18 on the back. Most holes had 3 groups and occasionally bunched up to 4. Ranger commented it was slow out there but did nothing to speed it up. Expected better for $150 a person.

A Bit Long in the Tooth.

The greens and fairways were fine. The green surrounds were a bit sketchy due to lack of maintenance/budgetary priorities. The cart paths were also st the end of their useful life. I played with my wife and another couple and everyone enjoyed the layout. Having played it before, I was able to give some insight on the trickier dogleg holes on the back (13, 15, 16 and 17). I have to say, I am always a bit perturbed at having to shell out $7.00 for a bag of balls after paying $100+ for a round. Having said all that it is a good value as a Hot Deal or even a discounted rate. I would expect more however paying full boat.

Great early season golf!

Great early season golf! Paired up with a tremendous young golfer from Traverse City and a retired fellow from Chicago. My wife and I had a great afternoon of TC golf. Our only complaint was no refreshments at the turn. The bar was closed and we were told to go to the towers, where we couldn’t drive our cart. A little coordination between the pro shop and the bar would have easily resolved this problem! But, overall a Tremendous afternoon. And the Wolverine was in spectacular condition for April!!

Excellent Early Season Golf

Course is in great shape for this early in the season! Greens are in good condition, slow roll to be expected. Starter was super guy and pro shop staff were terrific, but couldn’t get a pop or beer at the turn at 5:30, fellow at the bar said we had to go to the towers for beverages. No time for that, and carts can’t go there! All in all, everything else was terrific and were paired with a tremendous young golfer (and super young man) from TC and a Chicago transplant. A truly enjoyable round!
