Had a blast course was great n I shot 88 and it was great challenge for a new golfer.
A Consistently Great Experience
I’ve been playing The Fortress since I was a teen in junior golf, through Powerbilt Jr. PGA, high school, etc. I’ve never had a bad experience here. The course is always immaculate and challenging. Some of the truest greens you can roll on.
Everything went well. The only complaint I have is the cart paths are to far away from most greens. There was one hole where they would not let carts no closer than 150 yards from the green. If you have heart issues like I do that is just to far to walk. I did not pay for a cart so I can walk long distances fom green to cart path.
Par for the course
Considering there are very limited quality courses in the Saginaw/Flint area The Fortress is an appealing choice. Compared to courses elsewhere in Michigan however, it is overpriced given the quality of the layout/property
Course is great. Staff was great from the minute we pulled in. Cart girl right out to get clubs and club pro friendly and knowledgeable. Bring scuba gear for hole 13.
My tee time was cancelled.
I received a phone call from the golf pro in the morning. He let me know they aerated their green that morning and that I could cancel my tee time. I decided to cancel beings the greens were plinko'd. I am awaiting my refund.
Huge shout out to the golf pro for the heads up. I would of been really upset had a I showed up and found out the hard way.
Looking forward to playing when the green heal! It's an excellent course.
Fantastic layout and condition.
The club house still seems to be setting up for the season. The bar area had no alcoholic beverages or warm food. This is my only bad thing about the course. The actual course is in great condition especially for it being the first week in April. The bunkers are real sand and challenging unlike the ones I’m used to playing out of in Cleveland, OH. The layout is like nothing I would expect from Michigan. Has a PGA feel to it. Very fun to play and it makes you use your clubs properly. Not for beginners in my opinion.
All about golf, not the Off-Course Amenities
Off-Course Amenities need a little help, but it may be the time of year. The course is awesome. Greens had been dressed, but were still playable. This course is one to go back to.
Late season play
Very nice course over all. The only drawback was greens were airiated a couple of weeks earlier. Nice sized fairways, very playable off the tee box. Practice your sand bunker plays before you play this course- there are plenty guarding the greens for those mid- hits approach shots.
Course is also very walkable if desired.
