Great course, great value

Played this course in March and it was in excellent shape for the time of year. The pace was a little slow in parts due to a college tournament playing at the same time but I was able to get all 18 in after teeing off around 4. Not necessarily a “scenic” course, but you get a great feel of being isolated and out in nature because it’s fairly remote and in a wetland area. The course design was nice, you could tell the designer knew what he was doing and put some thought into it but it wasn’t overly hard. There weren’t any holes that felt overly designed for difficulty. Staff was super nice. I live in the Lansing area, and this course is well worth the 30 minute drive. I can’t wait to play it in the summer when it’s all greened up.

Great course...GPS was worthless

The gps was ineffective. Too many ads and always out of sync with reality. Bring a gps of your own. Got quoted 10% off on a golf bag and then no discount when I came back to buy it. The staff is a little inconsistent.

Thank you for your review davenerz and we are sorry that it seems your gps unit's connection to the satellites and was ineffective. They are great when they work but unfortunately at times they fail and need to be rebooted. Our goal is that next time you are out it works flawlessly.

Great condition poor pace of play

The course was in good shape. Pace of play was terrible. We were at 3 hours after 9 holes and decided to move on. Didn't find an open hole until #18.

Thank you Andrew3560744 for your review. We are sorry that your round's pace of play was not what we normally have which is 4 hours for 18 holes. We try very hard to maintain that timeframe but at times our patrons aren't able to meet that expectation, and your round was one of those times. We hope to see you again soon and believe you will find that your long round this time was not the norm.

Well Thought Out Design

I had wanted to play this course for 3 years and I’m glad I finally did. The property is beautiful and expansive. Course was more difficult than I first thought it would be as the greens had many subtle breaks that added more putts than it should have. Fairways seemed pretty narrow and next time I will leave driver in the bag more.

The snack bar is conveniently placed so you can turn quickly. Best part of the course was the seemingly brand new carts (which explains the $18 cart fee). I had forgotten my range finder but the GPS on the carts was the most detailed I had ever seen.

Thank you KL1121 for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. We agree that driver isn't needed on every hole and we hope to see you again soon so you can bring the course to its knees!

Absolutely No Course Management

We got to the second tee and had 2 other Firestone’s waiting to tee off. Called the ranger who came over and said it opened up after the next hole. We ended up waiting with another group on every single hole all 18, and the group in front of us quit after 13 holes. Playing a 5 hour round is awful. The same ranger who said on hole 2 we would be fine also served us our hotdogs at the turn, while 4 staff sat in the pro shop doing nothing. We drive an hour to play this course and I wouldn’t play it again if it was free.

Hello and thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing The Medalist Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
