The course was GREAT, I was bad :>)
Always a good time with friends.
Price is a bit more than I would normally pay, but GolfPass benefits keep my rates manageable so I can occasionally play this GEM!
Really good course, but pricy
The course was in really good condition, love the greens. Enjoy everything about this course except the price of food and beverage. It's really pricy. You'll want to eat and get your fluids before you go there.
PACE: I found this weird, but they sent me out as a single as a Saturday morning tee time. Generally on Saturday mornings you can expect to get paired up... but I did not (which is fine). Played behind a 2some and ahead of a 4some which allowed me to hit 2 balls and enjoy my morning.
CONDITIONS: Tee, fairways, greens, and bunkers all in great shape. My only feedback would be to cut back about 10 yards of overgrowth from the tree line. If your ball bounces to the trees there's no chance to find it, or play the "hero shot."
STAFF: Got me paid and out on the course.
VALUE: Other courses I played at this price have balls on the range for you to hit, or provide a warm-up bucket. Also, the GPS in the cart did not work. The course conditions were great, but given the (lack of) amenities I think the rate is a bit high.
LAYOUT: More blind tee shots, tight fairways, and forced carries than I care for. I'm sure this course is someone's "cup of tea," but it's not the kind of golf I prefer.
pace of play excellent. twosome no waiting. took 3 hours. Challenging layout. with difficult greens.
Hidden gem in Central Lower Michigan
The Medalist never disappoints. The layout is unique, reasonably challenging, while also fair. A couple of holes (notable #4) feel somewhat gimmicky, but overall the course is excellent. When we played (6/19/21), the course was in excellent condition and the greens were quick (which I prefer). The course is narrow in several placed, so control over aim and distance is paramount. To borrow an overused phrase, The Medalist has an Up North feel to it (tree lined, most holes stand apart from the others) and has some trick green complexes. The icing on top was that we played in 4 hours!!
Without a doubt this is absolutely the friendliest most customer service driven course I've been on in a few years.. Every employee we encountered was ultra friendly and accommodating. I couldn't have asked for more. I've had worst service at many country clubs I've been to. 5 stars.
Poor course conditions and drainage pipes laying around every single green
Poor course conditions and drainage pipes laying around every single green. There were drainage pipes and drainage ditches dug around every single green on the course this was not mentioned to me whatsoever. As an avid golfer and someone who takes the sport seriously it was irritating to have multiple shots affected by the poor conditions of the greens and the pipes laying all over the place. I will not be back. I understand making course improvements but they should be relayed to your golfers or reflected in the price
zallen55, The Medalist hasn't done any drainage projects in many years. Are you sure you are reviewing the correct facility? If so please contact our owner Lowell Weaver to discuss your concerns and he will make sure you are made whole for your efforts. We strive to make sure everyone has a great experience at our facility. Thank you.
Conditions were pretty good for this early in the year. Staff andd fellow golfers were friendly. Nice track for the money!
Thank you for taking the time to review our facility. We are glad you enjoyed your time at The Medalist and hope to see you again soon.
Course Conditions (Greens)
Given the greens still have signs of aerating, the ball would not roll. But they were still charging sub~premium money to play. Should be charging less until the course conditions match the money charged.
Thank you for taking the time to rate The Medalist and we are sorry that our conditions didn't meet your expectations. We hope the next time we exceed your expectations and if not please reach out to our owner and we will definitely make it right for you.
Group of 5 playing at extremely slow pace in front of me. Was assured that groups above 4 were not allowed but played behind them. Wouldn’t recommend it.
Thank you for reviewing our facility and we are glad you enjoyed your time at The Medalist. We hope to see you again soon.
Great course conditions, layout, character, price!!
This year has been a fantastic year golfing going into semi retirement and with 88 rounds since March this Medalists is certainly GOLD. Great layout, conditions, character, challenging, and super greens roll true. Scored $43.59 for 2 on TeeOff, what a bargain! Even $29 medalists websites is a deal for this quality.
Only negatives, don’t like GPS with advertising, and a small crowded pro shop downstairs. Yea between great conditions, swamp carries, and plenty of challenges ( 144 slope from tips!!) this is a must play.
The ownerLowell W was on hands on. My buddy moved to Jackson area so I’m sure we will meet up here. Drove almost 2 hours to get here and was not disappointed.
Good turkey dinner just down road
Thanks Lowell for a great well run course experience with wife and buddy on a nice Saturday 11/6/21!
Thank you very much for your great review. We love it when our customers have a great time. We hope to see you again soon, and after such a great review you have our blessing to take an extra mulligan!
Second time playing the Medalist. Great course condition for frostbite pricing!! $28 can't beat it! Love the challenge.
Plan on losing a few balls.
Thank you for choosing The Medalist to play this time of you and we are glad you enjoyed the course. We agree if you make it around without losing a ball your had a great accomplishment.
Good course but hard for beginner
Generally good course. Nice course condition. But, it could be hard for beginners. And, the staff at the pros hope was okay, you know...
