I had a great round. The only thing I'd mention that needs attending - and I am sure you are aware of it - is the marker for the 12th tee: we couldn't find it and actually went the wrong way at first. But no big deal: it was a most enjoyable afternoon.

Great value

Played 4-8-21 from non to 4:00.....OK pace, course ib=n very good shape. Work underway replacing cart paths but that did NOT disrupt play. Fairways and greens in good shape...green speed medium. Course staff was working on bunkers and removing grass, etc. around the rims. I drive up from Toledo 1x-2x/month to play and it's well worth it!

First Time Playing

First time.... not bad.

Played Pierce Lake for the first time today on a hot deal (plus reward). This was a hour and 20 minute drive from my residence. All in all a decent track highlights and lowlights listed below.

Highlights
Tee boxes are in nice condition
Fairways are mature (somewhat long in terms of grass length) and spongy.
Bunkers are nearly perfect in appearance and fill
Greens roll similar to their warm up green, roll true, but play less break then what I was reading most of the time. Definitely not lightning in terms of speed but are large (especially #18).
Layout favors a draw for righties in most cases. If you carry over 260 expect less then driver on some par 4s from gold boxes forward. Some holes are semi-tight with trees / marsh.
No pace of play issues whatsoever
Ample restrooms on course.

Lowlights
Ground under repair near the majority of the cart paths on the back 9 (say 5-6 ft on either side). This was being addressed by their maintenance crew.
Maintenance crew..... I was started on 10 and encountered their crews on every hole expect 18. Not a huge problem but figured I’d mention that.
Damp ground conditions. I strike down, if you do also you’ll understand this lowlight. It’s a wet type course.

If you’re considering playing, for $35 bucks and a 45 minute drive I wouldn’t turn it down.

* Compares close to Pine Knob with better greens if you’d like a reference course....

Challenging, but fair

Fun day on the course even though there was light rain throughout most of the round. Layout is challenging with lots of sand traps, blind shots, doglegs, and wetland areas. But the greens.... undulating with significant level changes, guarded by traps and somewhat sadistic pin placements - YIKES!

Course was reduced to just the front 9 available for play due to maintenance on the back nine for the cart paths. This was a non issue for me I decided to play the front twice.
I was able to be matched up with 2 other golfers that actually worked at the golf course as rangers. John and Tom we great ambassadors for Pierce Lake. I had a great time playing the 18 with them both. The course was in great shape and the greens were very challenging. I will definitely try and get back out a few times at the course before the snow flies.

Stop the presses

My wife and I played. I went in to pay, it was for 9 holes-senior rate as we are both over 65. I asked the attendant how much was 9 vs 18. He informed me that 9 holes riding was $24 and 18 holes riding was $29. At that point I asked if we finish the 9 and decide to play 18 what would the charge be, He stated that it would be an additional $5 per player. When we finished the 9, my wife decided to play another 9. I went in to pay, and I was then told that it would be an additional $13 each. That would have made the entire cost, $37 each, when their rate online for seniors are $29. Told the to shove it.

Fun with great layout

Course was in very good shape. The greens looked very nice but didn’t putt true. Back was more challenging with tight tree lined fairways and grassy areas to carry The play was slow. There were a couple walkers in the group ahead of us that slowed the pace. Over all a very good course that I look forward to playing again
