Well manicured

Golden Hawk is a well maintained course with greens that are always in great shape. I love playing here it’s pretty challenging for all players. I play here 4-6 times a season. It’s well worth the money and the food in the clubhouse is great too. I especially like the pizzas. If you get a chance go play it. Thumbs up!

Needs a Ranger

More than a 5 hour round. At one point there were three groups waiting on the tee with one group on the fairway and one group on the green. Very frustrating!

If you like putting on the beach

The course should have been advertised that the course was going through a winterization. The entire front 9 holes had been aerated and sanded. The back 9 was in fantastic shape.

Unable to play

Normally this is a good course but this time they closed the front nine unknown to us which was paid in advance plus we have to drive 35 minutes to get their. So you have to play the same 9 again which caused a major problem and backed up was so bad we quit because they were still letting people out plus the people coming around to finish there 18. Totally messed up. We could of played somewhere else if we knew especially because golf days are limited in Michigan. Very disappointed.

Need A Ranger

This course needs a ranger to keep the slow players moving. I have never played here when I didn't have to wait on every tee for at least 4-5 minutes. Then, wait on every shot thereafter. Please get an enforcer out there!

GOOD VALUE

Golden Hawk Golf Course in Casco Twp is a 18 Hole Par 71 course that is 6202 yards from the tips. It features a few holes with water and some with marsh areas. Ball positioning is key on many holes here to have a good sight of the green. Being on the wrong side of the fairway will have you laying up to see the green with the trees.

Overall the course was good shape. The greens had lots of unkept ball marks thanks to ignorant golfers who don't fix their pitch marks. There was only 1 green that had actual bad spots on it because of shade causing mold to grow on it.

At $35 for 18 with a cart it's a solid price for a decent round.

The only downside is they stack tee times really tight together and will send people off the back 9 causing you to back log and prolong your round. Other than that I'd recommend checking it out.
