Good order and flow!
My son and I played the course from Gold/Red and played the gold tee boxes which must have been added fairly recently since the tee box signs only show three distances. Red, White, and Blue. What we noticed was we were hitting cart paths with our shots more often than most courses due to some design problems, especially hole two on the Gold course. The cart path crosses the fairway! Otherwise I can imagine this course really being nice when newer. There were many walkers and I would actually recommend walking for a better pace of play. Another thing that was intriguing were the number of gulls on parts of the course! Playability wise it is a fairly tough test, especially from the back (Blue) tees. If you like shaping the ball, there are plenty of opportunities to fade or draw tee shots. I would recommend this course for people who break 90 or better on a regular basis. Also the carts are newer with canopy covers in case of rain.
Hidden gem downriver
If your new to the area you have to play here 3 different 9s with each more challenging than the other the blue course has one of the hardest public holes in Michigan a must play great greens fast and true brand new carts and great staff very friendly and courteous
Pace of play made me suicidal
Overall the course was nice and had a great layout. The pace on the other hand was absolutely embarrassing for the golf course. They should know how to properly space people. They should also become clear to those who are “bad” at golf. Enforcing a single shot rule, or pick up rule for those who are “bad” would solve the pace issue. I hope they fix this because I’m debating if I’ll ever return. SMH
Smelly backed up course
Although the staff in the pro shop was really nice that’s where the nice ended. The pace of play was really really bad, the garbage dump smells horrible and it’s a really loud course. The machinery they use is extremely loud and they don’t give a rip that you’re playing. A John Deere tractor rode right past the tee box as we were trying to tee off. Never been there before, and I won’t be there again.
Over crowded first tee box
Tee times were way over booked big group on front 9 tee box. Started 10 minutes late of tee time whilst back 9 sat empty but they made a big deal about us wanting to start on the back. After 10 minutes of debate they let us finally.
Got rained out
Course was great as always, but got rained out on the back 9. Would love a rain check?
