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.

Wonderful

It was a beautiful day for golf. My husband and I enjoyed the round. We were not pushed nor were we held up. Just enough sand and water to keep it interesting.

Great course

The course was in great shape. But in the summer warm weather too buggy.
The associate in the pro shop was rude.
The gentleman at the carts when we got there was very nice & helpful. The starter was very nice.
The young man at the carts when we were done just stood there with hands in pocket and watched us unload the clubs and go to our car, he did ask if we had a good time. Not sure why he was there except to put the carts away.

Surprisingly underwhelming

I played this course at the end of August. It was an overcast day, but an otherwise perfect day for golf.

We had a late tee time to catch the "bargain" twilight rate of $60, but not so late that we were surprised to find that there was almost nobody else on the course. So pace was perfect, nobody behind us so we were able to play a mulligan or two (or seven) when needed. Nobody in front of us either, so we didn't have to wait at the tee box at all.

The disappointment really stems from two things: the lack of professionalism in the staff and the course maintenance. We were greeted by a less-than-zealous teenage girl who couldn't muster a smile when we checked in, followed by several 'cart boys' or whatever that didn't seem to notice us waiting for a cart for what seemed like forever. Finally spoke up and they barely spoke a word as they reluctantly got a cart ready for us.

Once we were on the course, the greens, teeboxes, and fairways were not kept like one would expect for an $85/round course. It was serviceable for the cheap public courses I normally play in Metro-Detroit, but not what I'd expect for a course held in such high regard. Sure, the scenery was nice, but that was just matter of circumstance due to the course's location.

All-in-all, a beautiful location with subpar maintenance made this a disappointing trip.

Scenic course

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

Great value . User friendly

Wife and I played. I played from the White tees and found course a good challenge . My wife played from the Red tees. She enjoyed the terrain and was not pressured by the water. She enjoys golf but is not too good.

Good time except for all of the gnats buzzing around your face!

Overall we had a good time. Nice layout. it was a beautiful day around 75 and sunny, but all of the gnats were driving everyone in the group crazy, not sure there can be much to do to correct that problem. I think it was #13 needs a little attention on the cart path....thought we were going to sink into the swamp...it was very difficult to get to the tee box.

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.

Challenging Yet Fair

Played the Monarch course. There's water on 15 of 18 holes. The course was in good condition and the greens were holding nicely after a couple days of heavy rain. Booked my tee time through Golfnow.com and got a great deal. Overall had a good experience. Looking forward to playing their other 3 courses in the future.

Challenging but Fair!

The Monarch course at Garland is a beautiful, well kept course. This course challenges you with distance and subtle breaks in the greens but other than that it is really a fair golf course that can be had if your game is on. The greens roll very smooth, and roll at a speed that's not too fast and not too slow. The fairways are maintained well, but we played after a heavy rainfall so they were alittle mushy. The rough is long but nothing to challenging to hit out of. The hardest part about the course is that there is a water hazard located on almost every hole. Avoid the water, and you'll do well. Overall I was really happy with the course and would definetly go back. One of my favorites in Northern Michigan!

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.
