Walked

Beer cans, country music, and good times

Course was in great shape with some really cool greens.
This isnt a private course so I didnt even blink when I heard music being blared for multiple carts.

I enjoyed my time, and id go back for another twilight round.

Great course, need better hot dogs

Fantastic course. Fun layout although a truffle on some holes if you are fighting a fade. Great condition, greens are quick. Only minor complaint is they should up their hot dog game, but hot dog and beer was also extra cheap. Love this place

Short, rustic course with a nicely challenging layout, very playable from the back tees (5800 yards). Rolling hills make it a surprisingly tough walk, you will not need to go to the gym that day! Greens are defended by lots of contour, conditioning could use a bit of work, tee boxes need work too. Grill wasn’t open yet when I played, no hot dog review :(

Very friendly family owned course, would for sure recommend and will play again. Excellent value course, “hidden gem” in SE Mi farm country.
