Hidden Gem

If you are up north playing the big names, Arcadia Bluffs, Forest Dunes and the like, treat yourself and your wallet to a hidden Michigan gem. This is a great course in great shape. The golf carts are dated, but able to take you up and down this hill and forest course. The greens are in great shape and are demanding but fair.

A great test of golf for any level.

Beautiful!

What a hidden gem! This is one of the most challenging courses I’ve played in a while. Lots of elevated tee shots and elevated greens, lots of rolling Hills. Overall a wonderful experience!

Local golfer

Course in great shape. Reading the greens was more pilot error than the course's fault. Wide open on a Thurs.

Great surprise

The course was great, haven't played it for years and they have done a great job with it. Greens were the best condition I've played up north, many other courses in the area are struggling with keeping greens. Layout is visually clallenging but fair to navagate.

Hidden Gem.

Course is in perfect condition. Tee boxes, fairways and green were immaculate. Good price with Hot Deal. Only bad thing was I played by myself. Being the first time playing the course had no idea on some blind shots. Definitely would play it again.

Dunmaglas diamond in the rough

This course is a bit off the beaten path but worth it. If u can get a hot deal do it! You would expect such a nice course based on the clubhouse and old golf carts. Don’t expect the luxuries of a country club course though. Challenging yet fair for me (15 handicap)

Diamond in the Rough

Little more of an obscure course as the area is filled with an abundance of great golf.

Don’t sleep on this one though.... elevation on virtually every hole, beautiful views in every direction, this is a must-play for the $ compared to others in the area charging 2-3x more

Sweet Course

I would play this course every year if the rates were not so high.
Mid week rates are pretty high which kept me from playing this gem more often. Because of golfnow and having special circumstances are both reason why I could afford it this time.
It was a cloudy day but once we waited out the rain, there were no cars other than ours in the lot. If they lower the rates I bet this place would be jammed packed everyday! And if rain is in the forecast, throw a special rate on the internet and people would flock here to play it. Carts are gas and a bit outdated. It is truly a masterpiece hidden gem.

A Great Experience

Only person on the course on a rainy weekday. Staff was great and welcoming. Course is amazing as are the views. From a forward tee it looks very playable for an average golfer. But from the tips, it was a stern and sometimes brutal test for me even as a 2 handicap. A must play!

Great Day

We had never played Dunmaglas. My husband and I got a good deal and thought why not. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful course. We enjoyed it very much. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We will certainly go back again

Outstanding Track

The course layout and and scenic views are outstanding. Challenging but fair; not necessarily long but shotmaking is required. Greens are fantastic but a little slow. Don't expect the off-course amenities that you might find at a $55-75 course (pro shop, dining, gps on carts, etc.) but you'll get a great golf course and fantastic customer service. Enjoyed so much the first day that went back again the next day.

This course is on a big hill.

Lots of downhill, sidehill and uphill holes. Very scenic. Played weekday afternoon, no one else on course. Greens were in good shape, but kind of slow.

Untapped Potential

I’ve played this course several times and honestly believe It has the potential to be one of the best in the state.... BUT...

It’s simply not maintained nor respected the way a beautiful golf course should be. As such, I would agree with previous reviews: this should be a mid-priced ($50-$60) round of golf.

Staff: Fantastic! Very friendly & knowledgeable

Pro-Shop: Pretty run down with very little selection to choose from.

Carts: Really old. Would have thought these things were “put out to pasture.” No USB. No club cleaner on the side. No sand to repair fairway divots.

Maintenance: Poor. As mentioned above, the lack of fairway repair tools (sand, etc) means it’s more difficult for the golfer to maintain the course. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seems as if their groundskeeper does too much of this work either.

Raw Course: Terrain, views, challenge, etc.... UNBELIEVABLE!

Bottom Line: A true golf lover with a lot of $ needs to buy this course and bring it up to speed.

Just OK, no food amenities to speak of

Arrived at the course hoping to get a sandwich or something to take out for my round. Nothing available except a few snacks, beer and soft drinks.

Course was OK, pace of play was good after our twosome was able to go past a slow foursome that let us play through.

I feel there are better options at the price in the area, with better amenities and friendlier staff.
