American Sportsman

The course was playable for being in February in Michigan.

TeeTimes.com charged for 18 with cart. The course allowed only walking because of damp grounds. Very disappointed. Not sure if I will use this website again.

Nice Course

This was a really nice course and the pricing wasn't bad. However, it had rained heavily the past 2 days. When we booked it said golf carts available and then when we got there they had told us they were pull carts only and we had to walk all 18.

There were a group of gentleman in front of us holding up not only us but 3 teams of golfers behind us. It was extremely frustrating, but not the fault of the golf course.

The little staff we dealt with was very friendly. We had to buy all of our alcohol before and at the turn as there were no cart girls that day.

Overall for a rainy experience it wasn't horrible, I just wish that the "no carts" was updated.

Muni, worth the Visit

This is an excellent muni, golf course, old-school, and certainly well-maintained, but being public you can be sure to have a slew of different player types. Well worth a visit.

Fun but a little slow

The course is in reasonably good condition, although some of the tee boxes need divot repair. Sufficient variety and challenge make the course enjoyable. Be prepared for unusual layouts, like two consecutive par threes on each nine.

We had dinner after our round at the restaurant, but it seems that the quality is not up to par, pun intended. We suggest that they tighten up and restore the quality we had come to expect.

Crap Greens & NO BUD LIGHT

Greens were really bouncy and splotchy with inconsistent grass. On top of that they didn't sell bud light anymore because of some grumpy old men were triggered by it being on the course.

Really threw off my game not having my crappy beer of choice. Won't be playing again until they fix the bud light scenario.

Fun course

Fun course that’s not super hard but challenging enough to make you hit golf shots still. The staff is always super friendly. My only complaint is the green fees during the summer are way high.
