Money never refunded

Course only had 9 holes open. Was told I would get a full refund since we didn’t want to play only 9 holes. Refund has not been given.

Fall Golf - A Good Value for the Money

Fall golf is always tricky. From inclement weather to course changes (e.g. leaves and green aeration), there is a challenge awaiting on every hole. This is however a good time to practice as the different conditions force you to play different clubs for the same shot result. This is a nice layout and a good value for the money.

Slow Play Again

5 1/2 hours for a twosome to play 18 holes is ridiculous.

Another Fall Round

For the amount of play this course receives, it is in remarkable shape. Weather was typical Fall Michigan - overcast but mild. Greens were still true despite the precipitation received the night before. All in all, a good day of golf.

go get the hawk

It was a blistering 90 degree day. There was still a moderate amount of play. Surprisingly, 3 groups allowed me to play through - a novelty these days. Course was in very good conditions and the greens were consistent all the way around the course. Good time and great value for the money.

Water damage

To bad that all the rain did so much damage to the grass. Traps were ponds and low areas in the fairways were little lakes. I'm sure all will be repaired in due time.

First time at Golden Hawk

The course was well maintained and fairly challenging with all of the water. Pace was a little slow; could have used a ranger to keep it moving. Overall a good course and would recommend.
