The course was not in very good shape - the greens were inconsistent, fairways were rough with 'critter' damage, and some of the tee boxes needed mowing.

Based on the other courses we played the same weekend, this was not good value for the amount we had to play and the condition of the course.

I have always wanted to play the course but the price was far too expensive, even on GolfNow. Many of my friends had stated that it was always over priced. My suspicions on this course were also heightened by the fact that the parking lot always seemed near empty, even at peak golf time. However, the $40 fee was the lowest I had seen in years, so I gave it a go. I really liked the layout of the course and some spectacular views of Lake Michigan but that is where my likes end. I was driving the ball accurately this day, I could see how the tight fairways would cause fits for an average golfer. My difficulties were in my approach and on the greens. At a 12 Handicap, these two parts of the game really tested me. Again, I liked the layout but a bit too difficult for me. The course conditions were atrocious. Fungus on most of the greens. The first cut of rough had dandelions 6 inches long, (on Memorial Day weekend to boot). I needed my weed wacker before I hit several shots. The only way I would play this course again, would be for a far lower price ($20-$25). Course is being mismanaged and $0 being spent to improve the condition.

Loved the great views of Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan from some of the holes. The course could have been in a little better condition, but it is still early in the season. Some very interesting holes, lots of sand traps. Eleven traps on number eleven!

Hadn't played Dunmaglas in about 4 years. Back then I felt it was going downhill. Upon returning last week I found the track to be very well maintained and definitely worth a play. Amazing views, fun quirky holes and always a challenge. I'll return back next year for certain. Pleased to see the place being taken care of.....this course is a nightmare for 1st timers so try to play with someone who has some course knowledge. Course goes out and doesn't come back until the 18th so stock up in clubhouse before heading out.

I have been playing Dunmaglas since 1992. Although my skills have diminished significantly, I always look forward to my trip to Petoskey, Michigan and several rounds at Dunmaglas. This course was a challenge for me as a single digit player, but the beauty always draws me back as a 20 handicapper. I would describe the course as rustic. The course design allows you to feel like you are the only foursome on the course... pace of play is usually in your hands.

The staff at Dunmaglas is incredibly friendly and accommodating. If you get a chance to be served by Dale you will appreciate his style and sincerity for you to enjoy your experience!

From the tips, it is all you can handle!

Worth the drive!!!

Like most of the layout. A couple of holes had sharp doglegs and had no idea what laid ahead. This course has great views of the Charlevoix area. Greens were hard to read. Gentle breaks you can not pick up looking. But they putted very good. Fairways and tees were in top notch condition. I would go back and play this course.

Solid course with great views. Course was in decent shape. This is a 50 dollar course not a 100 dollar course ( which is the regular rate ). Didn't see another golfer the whole time in the course so we were a little confused when we only saw the beer cart twice during the round. Overall pretty good experience and I would play again.
