Refused to close to deny us refund

Weather was terrible yet course refused to close or reschedule our tee time denying us a refund unless we played. Weather was too bad to play through, literally snow/sleet rain mix 43 degrees and 20 mph winds yet refused to work with us, left after 3rd hole complete waste of money. Course looks nice but if this is the way they do business there's plenty of other courses around.

Nice course but expensive

Unique layout using the natural terrain well. Greens were good speed and true but many golfers did not repair their ball marks. Several holes will be better played after first time. Should not be so expensive - surrounding courses are just as good but less than half the price.

Awesome place

Highly impressed with the course. In great shape. Everyone was friendly. Staff was very courteous. Would recommend as a must play. Beautiful scenery. Awesome layout. I have nothing bad to say about out it. Only reason for 4 stars on price is because I am a tight wad. If you are a golfer you will enjoy.

Very Nice Course

The course was in excellent shape as well as perfect weather for golf. The fairways were clean - a little soft but nice. The greens were fair and a little on the fast side but readable. This is one of my favorite courses within 50 miles - and we have a lot of courses.

Outstanding Resort Golf!

Played here many times in recent years. Course seems to get better every year. Excellent maintenance of fairways and greens. Real sand in the traps. A pleasure to play.

Slow pace of play

Rangers did not do a good job of keeping the pace of play moving. One group ahead of us was two holes behind the group they were following. Ranger did nothing to help improve this. Will not play this course again

Very Nice Course

This is a very nice course. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were in very good shape. The second cut grass was a little on the high side ( being cut as we played ). Play this course once a year and if the cost was a little less, would play it more. But as far a courses go, this course is just about as nice as you'll find in Norther Michigan.

Unsatisfactory

Played there many and always enjoyed Today was a total disaster. After 4 hours we had only completed 13 holes. There was a group of about 15 guys ahead of us who had no respect for golf or others around them. Many people behind us had already quit. We stopped after 13 holes because it was painful.
