Beautiful course!

Love playing at this great recreational course. Short but challenging for sure. It is really beautiful- will be exceptional when the leaves turn color more.

Beautiful scenic course!

We love playing here. It’s not terribly long but it’s challenging. Each whole is pretty- even with the drought the fairways are aren’t dried out and the greens are in decent shape (would be perfect buy for a few golfers who don’t repair their ball marks). Saw deer right on the course too!

Great value

The course is fun and the fairways and greens are in great shape. Some of the tees are in bad shape, and the cart paths are horrible, but the course is a great value considering how inexpensive it is. The carts are gas carts, there's no GPS on the cart, and without a range finder you're going to have to look at yardage on the cart path instead of out on the fairway. This is not a first class course, but it's plenty fun, especially since there were few people on the course and we never had to wait.

Fun family owned track

Fun family owned track.

Course in very nice shape. My only suggestion would be to update the yardages on the score card. Many are overstated, not that big of deal as my golf watch showed the true yardages from the tees we played from. Some yardages can be overstated by anywhere from 20 to 80 yards on several of the par 4 and par 5 holes.

Very cool tiki styled hut on paw paw lake that can be easily visited after hole 7 and hole 12. They offer dogs and have both non alcohol and adult drinks available.

Looking for a fun way to spend an afternoon this a good place to do it.

Be aware: golfers appear after 7th hole bar

Nice course; there is a bar after the 7th hole but unfortunately foursomes stop to sit and have a few beers and then cut back into the rotation. It’s bad enough when one foursome does that but when we played that day two foursomes we’re together and squeezed in between us and the group ahead of us. Needless to say we spent a lot of time waiting after that. The gazebo bar is great tho to grab a beer or snack to go.

Nice old fashioned golf course

Paw paw lake is a very nice family owed establishment. The course is in very nice shape and greens rolled well.
There is some elevation changes and the course is packed into a relatively small tract of land.
My only concern is the scorecard yardages are considerably over estimated on a few holes.

They also have a nice tiki type bar that is located on the water of paw paw lake. They offer dogs and beverages and it is located so you can pop in between the 7th and 8th hole. And then again between 12th green and 13th tee box.

It’s a very nice golf course that is great to play on weekdays before leagues start.

Beautiful course, beautiful day

We played here not long ago when the course was really wet and sections of the cart paths were underwater. Luckily today the course had dried out some and the cart paths were driveable. Turned out to be a beautiful day and the course was not crowded at all.

Wet day.

Because of recent rains- Cart path only which would have been fine if areas of the cart paths weren’t under water. They need to fill in with gravel the low spots in the paths. Also, when course open seems like rest rooms should be too. Love the course tho- beautiful lake views.
