Enjoyable Course

Nice layout with 3 9’s to play— loved the spacious Valley Course and the Woods course with a view of Lake Michigan.

Old, older, oldest

This course is nice and cool right along the lake when it’s really hot in the city come up here start out with the woods nine which is close to 100 years old. Really kind of neat with some old obstacles in the fairway. I don’t know what they call them back then and then the Meadows is a 60s course which has nice character and then the new Valley nine which is 30 years old is the most modern it’s very nice nine holes are usually find the deals right here up to you off her golf now and for two of us to pay on a Friday afternoon for 21/8 of $42 you can’t touch it so it’s a little drive out here what is very very nice scenic ride along the lake
