Course is a work in progress .
Booked the 1:04 pm tee time on GolfNow. Couldn’t beat the price at $9. 00. I breezed through the first nine holes behind another single. The cart path needs repairs starting on the par 3 third hole and ending on the par 5 6th hole. The grounds crew was patching them with gravel after #8. As I said before I was rolling along with no issues until I reached the par 5 at number ten. At that point I ran into a foursome . These guys came out early for their league play to get I an early nine holes, I don’t begrudge them that but, they refused to wave me thru. They spent the next nine holes looking for their wayward balls. In the woods etc. on the greens three of them would walk off when finished while one guy practiced putts. This place needs a Ranger in the worst way. I’ve golfed here on 15 occasions this season and have yet to see a ranger. The pace of play is particularly bad on the back nine with folks from the league acting as if they own the course. Woodfield , you can do better. I like supporting local businesses , but this is ridiculous.
Brutal pin placement
The reviews on here are prolly from bad golfers. The cart paths are beat up drive slow or don't use them not a big deal I never had a cart path ruin my day. The tee boxes are used it's a golf course use a tee they are flat it's all that matters to me. Prolly seen the cart girls 5 or 6 times on a Monday with bad weather cudos to that. As a guy that plays 120 rounds a year the course will be getting more of my money. Only complaint is that for a course that is all about shot placement and really nice layout their was no place to hit the ball to go at pins. all very front or very back. 2 were in middle but right on huge slopes. The one par 3 you could not even see the pin from blue's that is unacceptable at 200yards plus. This course should give us a discounted round for the carnival pin placements lol. Really nice course just be fair with the pins I don't like having to hit pin point shots only to have a 3foot circle to hit my approach to have less then a 20 foot put.
2021 Captain's Club
Fairways: Generally excellent, but with some choppy areas
Rough: Generally good, some areas have been allowed to grow and block views toward the green making it difficult to see groups ahead and plan shots.
Cart paths: badly in need of repair - many potholes and broken areas
Bunkers: Sand is in good condition, making them very playable. Patrons tend not to rake, and saw tire tracks in one bunker.
Layout: from the White tees, excellent variety. Course requires hitting targets from the tees on many holes. May be too short for some.
Needs Lots of TLC
The captain's club is a great layout. Feels like you're playing up north. But the course is in dire need of some care. The tee boxes are atrocious. Divot marks make a difficult to get a comfortable stance. Cart paths are indicative of Michigan roads....all broken up and full of potholes. Greens roll good but are full of unprepared ball marks.
I'd recommend Sugarbush in the area rather than Captain's club.
Not terrible, but not great
Course conditions were very dry (as has been the weather). The cart path was worse than most Michigan roads. A lot of challenging holes, but don't go in June the cottonwoods and horseflies are atrocious. Was expecting a nicer course for location and price.
Decent course, slow play
The course is fine, but this place has been plagued with slow play for 25 years. They have rangers, but no one will say anything to the slow players, so they upset everyone else on the golf course. 3 hours to play the front nine. Number 7 tee had 3 groups on it. It would also help if they would mow down some additional areas. The fact you can lose a ball on every hole makes this course terrible for beginners.
Looking pretty bad!
I was disappointed with the conditions. Needs water everywhere. Tee boxes are the worst I’ve played this year. Glad I was able to use my golf now rewards and pay less than 30. Not worth anything more
Fun to play
Price is a little steep for the condition of the course but it was fun to play. Tee boxes need some love.
A course that needs repairs.
Tee boxes in bad shape, greens need work, fairways average do have large bare spots. Cart paths will throw your back out.
Other courses in area are in better shape.
This course needs lots of maintenance. The cart paths are full of potholes and severely decaying. The sand traps have been ignored throughout the course. There is way to much growth on some holes which makes it hard to pick or find a target to hit to ( hole 8 back tees & 18 from back tees 14 back tees). Tees, fairways and greens are fine. Feels like the course is in financial hardship? This was always one of my favorite places to play in the Flint Genessee county area.
So Much Potential But Not Maintained
The last time I played this course was in 2019. Refused to go back because it was not well maintained, i.e. tee boxes with barren patches, dirt swells and hollows along the cart paths and in the fairways, and cart paths that have 12" pot holes. Returned on an 80 degree day two years later and found the exact same conditions. It is a shame that such a nice layout isn't being kept in pristine condition. If you have to charge more to keep a nice course, I don't mind paying the extra.
Additionally, I understand the need to get more revenue but 8 minute tee times is ridiculous. On a Tuesday, it took 5 1/5 hours to play 18 holes and we didn't make any clubhouse stops.
Where’s the upkeep?
Lack of upkeep really hurts this course. Cart paths were almost dangerous to drive on. Didn’t offer a good description of the holes and staff was too busy texting to see our tee times cause late starts and backing up everyone
