The course was laid out well and the views were great. Challenging yet fair, course knowlwdge would have helped on a few holes. Good price for a round, staff was very helpful, would play again. Thanks.

Interesting holes, course in good condition, fairly tough but, unlike other area courses we recently played, the rough was not overly punitive. Elevation changes added to the enjoyment. Par 3 #7 very scenic. The on-course restaurant is a don't miss.

A nice routing, well designed and in very good condition. Have played the Sundance course since it opened at least once a year......it's a very nice challenging fun play. The par 3 8th and par 5 9th can be scorecard killers if you don't watch out. Sundance does require some course knowledge to master and there are several greens that are next to impossible to hold if the flag is in the wrong position so approach shot angle position is extremely important. The downhill par 3 tee box of the 17th hole provides a pleasurable vista of Torch Lake....and the 18th is a demanding finish over a pond well protected by sand traps. Excellent range and practice facilities. 4 stars plus. Downgrading only because they still operate out of a trailer so it's very cramped with only one bathroom for each gender. Old school Torch course is also on site (also worth a play) with food/beverage at the original clubhouse with beautiful vista of Torch Lake on the deck available post round. I wish A-ga-ming would either build a new clubhouse or just move out of the trailer after renovating and upgrading the original Torch course clubhouse.

I'm not against paying a lot of money for a round, but I want my money's worth. The website and pictures make it seem like every hole is gorgeous, but that's not the case. I played The Natural the day before and some of those holes were better designed. Don't get me wrong, this is a GREAT looking course, but I'm just not sure it's worth the money. The pro-shop is lacking (and they seem to have two of them which was confusing). Pace of play was downright EXCRUCIATING!! Took two of us over 6 hours to finish 18 (without stopping for lunch)! They allow singles to play on their own and won't combine them with a 2some/3some. Thankfully the beer-cart and girl came around pretty often so we ended up drinking a lot more than playing golf. We had fun overall, but I'd rather pay for an average golf course where I can actually play golf.

Grabbed a Stay and Play Deal. All the weekends were booked, but managed to work in a Wednesday overnight in October 2012. The colors were simply spectacular. We played Sundance the first day and, even though the weather was a bit overcast, we enjoyed ourselves and the rain held out until we finished! It rained overnight making The Torch course a bit squishy in some areas, but it was beautiful nonetheless. The views of Torch Lake on the Torch course were simply spectacular. The staff was extremely friendly. The food in the clubhouse was tasty but nothing fancy.

Since Ag-a-ming opened the Sunset course in 2005 I've played it at least once each year. It's always been maintained well, greens are smooth and fast, decent sand in the bunkers and they do have a nice range and practice facilities. A very fair and challenging golf course that's scenic with generous fairways. Not your typical Northern Michigan golf course cut through forest. It's by far the most expensive of the three golf courses Ag-aming runs (Sunset, Torch and now Antrim Dells) and must point out that you can play several courses in the area that are just as well maintained for significantly less cost (by as much as 50pct or more). Pace of play if crowded has always been an issue. Some rounds can take more than 5 hours if you're behind an outing. Again very nice track....they need to build a clubhouse rather than continuing to work out of a trailer.
