Nice course, but needs an active Ranger

This course is a nice test of golf. The course was not the challenge. It was the foursome ahead of us that were clueless to their slow play.

Normally, a course Ranger will note that holes are open ahead of a slow group -- and ask them to move it along. No ranger here. At 2 hours after 9 holes, we chose not to complain. It was only after finished in 4:45 minutes that I asked to see the manager, and suggested they need a Ranger to drive the course, speeding up those who slow play.

Played a quick 9 this morning. A friend is visiting from my hometown and he’s an avid golfer. He was VERY impressed with the course. It has been almost 20 years since I have played it and is everything I remember. Such a jewel in western Michigan.

Starters were aggressive with pace play

The course was beautiful and a great to play. My only complaint was the starter was very pushy with play pace. We had a a foursome and when we came to the bend after the first nine we were told we were playing to slow. We completed the first 9 in 2:04. For the difficulty of the course this was great time.
