This course is always challenging and extremely well kept. Howveer, an outing of at least 20+ tee’d off about 15 minutes before us and absolutely ruined our experience. We had 20-25 Minute waits on the tee boxes from hole 2 thru 6. Once again, completely ruined the experiences of my brother and I and the twosome that we were paired with. Will be forever calling ahead to ensure no outings are scheduled immediately prior to my tee time. Huge disappointment.

Always enjoy playing here. Course is usually in good shape. Pace of play was absolutely horrible today as we were stuck behind a three some walking for 12 holes. They would not let us play through and no ranger out on a weekend. Some holes we waited 15 minutes or longer to tee off. I don't understand why courses allow walkers on the weekends when it's busiest. Starter was very friendly, but the other staff seemed cold.

Reading the courses website description and the great things this place had to offer sounded promising. Soon after arrival we were disappointed to find out the course restaurant was closed on Sundays. The only food available was some old hotdogs and random snack items, which wouldn't have been an issue except they boasted about the "amenities". Course plays well, not very long and the greens are pretty flat. Good fairways and above average practice facility. Lots of water and enough long rough to keep you honest

As usual, the starter was surly. I had purchased a round as a single and was told I would be joining a single and twosome. Starter said he thought the twosome had already left. He said I could go out alone. I asked how far ahead the next group was and it seemed he did not want to bother telling me. I glanced at the tee sheet and determined the group was probably on the second hole so I decided to tee off and play two balls. Caught the twosome on the fourth hole and really started waiting on #7. I was at the tee on 7 as they tee'd off but they ignored me. Faster players, particularly singles, often become invisible to the group ahead. As I waited on the fairway of #8, a ranger came by and talked to me. He handed me two balls he had found and told me that the two players in front of me were employees. After waiting a long time on #9 and 10, I decided to skip a couple of holes and was clear the rest of the way. The course' condition was as good as I have ever seen it. Greens were smooth and true, bunkers were very playable (a condition becoming more rare in SE Michigan) fairways were firm and the ball rolled well on them. Lakes of Taylor is a quality course that would benefit from a bit more attention to customer service. I still recommend playing there.

This is probably the best course I have played this year. Fairways and rough are in excellent condition. Greens are fast with lots of slope but fair. Love the layout and price.

Pace of play was and always is way too slow. Over 6 hours to play 18 and the staff does absolutely nothing to enforce pace of play. 3 groups on every hole is entirely too much. This course has always been the slowest around and it's the main reason I only play it once a year.

Fantastic play every hole, for long hitters and low handicappers. Can be a challenge for seniors or beginners, or high handicappers. Will play again this Saturday weekend.

Everything was great except for the traps. Less than 1/2 inch separates the ball from a rock hard surface. I'm a good sand player and could not get the club underneath the ball. Only one or two traps had any sand to work with. It made a very enjoyable golf day unenjoyable. Will not play there again unless that problem is addressed. Too bad. I love the course,

The course plays long with a lot of uneven lies. The fairways are lush for ball striking however you need to analyze your lie to get the ball in position on the large undulating greens. You will need every club in the bag. Our group had plenty of fun with near misses and almost makes for birdies and pars. We will play it again soon. Although the name is Lakes, I found ample fairway room to avoid the water hazards.
