You can see yourself playing Reflections
Fun track and impeccably maintained - much more hilly terrain than the Monarch - this was the 2nd course we played in our mini getaway and enjoyed it very much; greens (bent grass) ran true. I will come back and play again.
Least favorite at Garland
To preface my rankings, we played through heavy rain for most of the day so there weren’t many people out there. Additionally, the conditions took a hit with the rain and there was some standing water.
Aside from the rain, the staff and amenities at all Garland courses was fantastic, but this course stood out amongst the rest as our groups least favorite. There were a few too many gimmicky holes and a couple where your approach is blocked-out unless you’re in the rough. We played the tips (6300ish so not a monster), but some tee boxes back there had porthole windows to shoot through with overhanging trees.
If you don’t have time to play every course at garland, this should be the first left off. If you do have time, it’s worth the play just expect some frustration.
Absolutely 100% agree with this review. Couldn’t have been written any better, and I wish I would’ve read this comment before choosing which 3 we couple play and missing out on Monarch.
Nice woods trail
Nice up north feel. Course is in great shape, yardage plays true.
Nice course to play in Lewiston
Played the course for the first time in a long time pace of was good - beautiful layout
Great if you get the Hot Deal, otherwise Overpriced
I would not pay $90 for this course, well worth the $40 though.
Reflections is the perfect blend of beauty, fun and challenge. With exceptionally smooth greens. Garland knows how to setup a course.
Twenty Years Later Still A Great Course
Played Sunday afternoon & had the course to ourselves. Reflections is a great course not your traditional layout. Each nine has 3 par 3's, 3 par 4's & 3 par 5's. Just a fun & beautiful course. If your in the area, it's a definite stop.
Great Resort and Value
Nothing to complain about. Great place and value.
4 courses on property, all very good.
wonderful. going back
Great complex, very nice courses
This is a great place to play. Our group is thinking of returning but to stay on the grounds.
First time playing here and it was outstanding. Perfect shape.. very challenging holes. My only problem with some holes I would have a perfect drive but the pin placements made it almost unreachable at times.
It wad beautiful especially the first couple holes were very pretty. The front nine was my favorite.
Great day at Garland
Excellent day playing one of the most beautiful golf courses in Northern Michigan. Spectacular colors everywhere, the course is in pristine condition. Shotmaking is required and target golf at its best.
Perfect. Only improvement would be some senior tees, for us old guys.
definitely a challenge
This course was rather wet - mud on the ball constantly. Course design is diabolical - there is some mean holes Course definitely has some teeth - Greens are fairly fast and undulation is prevalent. Condition was very good. Rough length around the greens is severe. Minimal margin for error. The course plays too tough for the average player - it wasn't fun.
This course is has spactacular views.
All Garland courses are in great shape and when we have anyone from out of town they always say WOW what a nice course. One big problem though is the bugs are very annoying. I hope you are addressing this issue.
Reflections at Garland
Nice course, glad I used GolfNow.com, would not have been worth the regular price of $90 per round.
Nice course, but sand traps were not well maintained. Pace of play was great because we were basically the only ones on the course. Great value through Golf Now but not worth full price. Maybe conditions were as they were because it was late in the season, but we expected Garland to be pristine.
Reflection on Reflections
Played Reflections after enjoying some time at the outdoor bar while we waited for someone who was running late. Very playable for all skill levels. Blue tees were the back tees and don't play super long, but long enough to use all clubs in bag and put some thought into your tee shots. Many strategically placed trees that force you to think about them before selecting a club. Some holes require a driver while some just a 4 iron to get into good position. Greens were in great shape. Many large greens. Course not marked with yardage too well. For sure is easier than the monarch, but still can be tough. Very enjoyable course to play. A few breather holes make it fun to play.
Play Reflections but take bug spray
Bothered by TONS of gnats on the course, and greens were fairly slow. Otherwise really enjoyed the round.
Reflections in July
Garland has some of the best courses in all of Michigan but I do have a few concerns. They have the worse nat issue. There are millions of nats flying all around your head the entire time and they are on every course. Another thing, we never saw a beer cart except right after the first hole. Finally, we paid $41on golf now but the normal rate was something like $88 per person. The greens fees are ridiculous. There is no one out there playing. I don't understand some of these courses that charge top dollar and have no players. This is a $50 course. I would never play any of the courses here for more than $50. I understood now why there is no one at the resort. It is a golf ghost town.
