Beautiful course!

Not the most exciting course I’ve ever played but the weather and the views on some of the holes made up for it. Course conditions are excellent and the overall experience was exceptional!

Golfers Beware

This golf course name describes the layout - crooked. Most fairways are dog legs. The course itself is in very good condition. Greens are large and difficult. There are many blind shots and the only course description is provided on an App that didn’t work. Make sure you have a range finder.
Scenery was beautiful..

However I cannot recommend this course because of the unbearably slow pace of play. Our start time was 1:30 and if we had played the entire 18, we would have finished at 7:30 pm.. The course was sold out for the day, so there were many frustrated golfers playing behind us and some asked to play through until they realized it was useless. By the time we reached the 10th hole we were waiting 20 minutes on every tee box.

There were no Marshals and no attempt to speed up the 6 foursomes causing the delay. The 2 people working when we left at 6:15 pm (after playing 13 holes in 4 1/2 hours, ) rudely informed us that they knew about the delay and turned away..

It was an 80 degree day and when we made the turn, there were no water cups or ice.

Overall it was a very unenjoyable experience.. Boyne Mountain rResorts wanted our green fees but did not provide the service we deserved.

Love this course

This is one of my favorite courses in Northern Michigan. Stunning bay views, fun layout and great course conditions, especially for October. The staff could be friendlier though honestly. The starter was super nice and talkative but the jerk behind the counter at the pro shop needed a serious attitude adjustment. This isn’t the first time I’ve had that interaction with him either. It is what it is. I love this course and will continue to come back.

crooked tree

Course layout is great with beautiful views of the Lake and Bay Harbor. Challenging up and down track. Putting was very difficult the first time. I can't believe the putting green had no holes.
