Tough course

The course is really tough but in great shape. If you’re willing to check your ego at the door it’s a fun course. Players that cry when a course is tough should stay far away.

Poor Value, Worse Layout

Overall, not even close to worth the $60 per person we paid. To be fair, we played the day after a heavy rain; but the course conditions were average at best and that was the only “positive”. As a mid handicap player; even I was frustrated with the layout which consisted of forced layup after forced layup, ninety degree angle doglegs, and just unnecessary hole designs. I am all for unique course design, but you should never be punished for hitting a good shot; here, there is plenty of that going on. All in all, I recommend you save your money and play any of the other nearby courses that are all less expensive and far better courses: Coyote, Tanglewood, and Links of Novi each stand far above Cattails.

Hello and thank you for your 5-star rating, u383656498! We're delighted you enjoyed your round at Cattails and we appreciate the 5-star rating. We are very sorry to hear about the inconvenience you experienced when booking your previous round. It sounds like you prepaid for a Hot Deal on GolfNow.com. When this is the case, no money is paid to the pro-shop so there is no money that is owed back from the course, and Hot Deal tee times are non-refundable. You may have booked other course times through GolfNow.com and that is why you were able to obtain a raincheck. We hope this clears up any confusion and thanks for choosing us!

Pace of play was horrible. No one seemed to know whose tee time was what. 2:30 tee time and tee’d off at 2:45 as a single. If you’re supposed to be paired with people then pair them but waiting on holes for greens to clear when you can’t reach them is horrible. On the 5th tee, the green and fairway were clear and the group decided to stop and chat with the cart girl. When the green is open, you should emphasize on getting to the green not dinking around for a mixed drink.

Thank you for playing Cattails Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Course is fun, greens need a lot of work

I have never seen so many unfixed ball marks on the green. The course itself is a little gimmicky but with a gps/app it’s not that bad to play when knowing where you have to hit. The greens are hard but fun to putt on. Nice grass range and clubhouse has limited food.

Poorly Maintained; Friendly Staff

This is the first time I have played this course in a number of years and was disappointed. The fairways were in bad shape and the overall course just seemed to be going down quickly. The only positive was the staff who were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this course especially for the price!

Help!

Certain areas need attention Age has taken it toll on the infrastructure.. Club house needs update along with landscaping on the course. Given that It is still a nice track. Greens were good with the exception of a couple bad spots on some holes. Played here close to 20 years ago. Wish it could go back to that 5 star course that it was.
