Lakes of the North GC

Great course, great conditions, greens smooth a little on the slow side for how good the look making putting easier. All good here no negatives except I had no internet connectivity, I use a GPS APP so had to use the yardage makers which were easy to use and found them accurate..

Immaculate greens and fairways

Compared to other courses in our area, Lakes of the North is exceptional. The fairways and greens are always in perfect condition. If you play very early in the morning, as I did, you will not encounter any slow play. However, because the maintenance workers are out there tending to the course, you might want to bring ear plugs, as it is very noisy. This course is so beautiful that it is a pleasure just to play there.

Not Too Many Lakes

I assumed that there would be a lot of water on this course, but the name is deceiving. The course was in great condition and it was a pleasure to play. Three guys in front of us were very slow but we lost them at the turn. When we checked in, there was only one guy to do everything, so that was a little bit of a bummer as we had to wait for a while for range balls and coffee. Overall, I would play it again!

Tuesday round

The round great— but we were unaware that the bar- restaurant was not open on Monday or Tuesday- so we’re disappointed that we couldn’t get refreshments / lunch. Fortunately the course does have water available. Otherwise perfect!

Nice Course

I think we paid too much for the round ($42.50), but it was the weekend and it was Father's Day, so I guess that's to be expected. Staff was very friendly and commented how wonderful he thought the shape of the course was. Fairways were great, rough was dead, dry and yellow. (Lack of rain here in Northern Michigan at this time.) Landscape was very nice, however, other courses in this area are prettier. Still a great round, actually beat my husband by a stroke. OOPS! LOL

Great course

Course was in great condition. Very fun course to play. My only complaint is we were behind an outing of 20-some guys playing slow. It ended up being a 5-hour round. Will definitely go back, but will check with the course to make sure we aren’t behind any large groups.
