As part of the Boyne portfolio just a few miles north and inland from the top rated ridiculously expensive Bay Harbor course Crooked Tree has really nice vistas of Lake Michigan, elevation changes and in general is a very well maintained challenging golf course where there are several holes that you need to play a few times to get the hang of it. Nice range to warm up on. Recommended but yes some of the greens are a bit over the top. Pet peeves are that it's expensive......at least $80 plus, beverage prices are steep ($5 plus for a 12 oz can of Bell's beer, $3 for a Vitamin water) but worse is that the really nice looking from the outside clubhouse facility only has one mens toilet and one urinal and smells like a barn. At least you are treated right and it's not "snooty" like the employees at Bay Harbor.....nice welcoming folks at this place. 4 stars....and yes I'm downgrading a full 1 star because of cruddy men's "locker room" and prices.

Course was in excellent shape. The only thing I could suggest would be yardage makers..perhaps the Kirby system.<br/> The women handling our bags and setting up our carts did an excellent job. She is quite the worker also handling the driving range. You have a great employee.

Played on one of the most perfect golf weather days possible... 80 degrees w/ only a trace of a breeze on a Saturday in late September. Staff was very friendly & offered advice on several points of the course to be aware of w/ shots. VERY difficult greens as they are extremely undulated & fast. Course design is excellent w/ a lot of fairway undulations along with incredible topography & views of Lake Michigan. #16 really stands out being a par 4 with an incredible elevation change after your tee-shot. Your 2nd shot goes down to a green that seemed like 50-75 feet below.<br/> Nice driving range perfectly situated from clubhouse & so many great holes to mention here.

HIGHLY recommend playing this course---especially with the price at $37 w/ cart!

Only recommendation I would suggest---and I told this to the staff---- is that a yardage book with hole advice on each hole is a must due to many of the blind shots you are faced with and a yardage guide would help immensely w/ club choices off tees and in some of the fairway shots.......

This is great track. The course has 5 par 3's which when you look at the tees for orange are at 5900 yards. Trust me unless you can drive it 250 yards plus all the time is all the course you could ever want. My only issue is the greens. There is significant undulation and to keep them fair they are slow. Hole 2 green far too tricked up as well as 9 & 18 shared green. 18 has been improved but in my opinion both of these could be completely redone. They offer few pin placements. I still give this high recommendation with the changes to hole 16, 17 and 18 did a lot of improvements to the course feel. The views starting from 15 one are just perfect looking out to the bay. Of all the Boyne courses the staff are certainly the most friendly that is not to say they all aren't just better with exception of Bay Harbor. I can only recall one time I have played it slow play was an issue and the staff were quick to apologize after loosing track of the slow group.
