Pace of play was atrocious. Weekday, late morning tee time. 4 hours in, I had to skip the last 2 holes to get to work on time. Ranger was not seen after leaving for the first tee. Course itself was alright, some nice holes, maintained pretty well. Elevated tee shots are fun, and there are many here. Might play here again if the price is right (<$20 hot deal), hopefully they figure out their pace of play issues. Guy I ended up joining up with around the 10th-11th hole said this is the norm: rack em and stack em.

The rumors of the township shutting it down might be true(((. Maintenance was suspect at best. Greens were cut much higher. I can understand that. But growth and suckers on trees have not been touched all season. Better get out and play it while you can! And now a bad putt won't roll off the green!! Lol

Thru the front 9 we had three groups try to jump ahead of us. The back started off the same. We had two groups do the same before abandoning our outing at hope 14. If this Course was free I wouldn't play. Lack of ranger and low price per round results in an unnecessarily painful experience.

Had to leave after 12 holes due to disgusting pace of play. No ranger, advanced beginner adults giving lessons to other adult beginners without any sense of etiquette. 7 year old kids not only golf quicker but have a better sense of the game. I played here about 15 years ago and remember it to be the same. Never again will I play Hilltop.

I always book very early tee times so that I can play through without any interference of people in front of me. Today I got to hole 13 and there were 5 golfers ahead of me all of the sudden after myself and my buddy had played all morning with nobody around as we were the first off the tee. The fivesome was very slow and agonizing so I called the Clubhouse because there wasn't supposed to be anyone in front of us and I spoke to Aaron. He immediately apologized and sent the starter out to notify the 5som that we were going to play through. The fact that he made it happen so quickly and was able to help us out and was very friendly about it was awesome. Hiccups happen but they don't always get fixed in a quick and friendly manner but today that's exactly what happened it was fixed and it was quick and it was friendly. I had a great round of golf scored terrible but had a blast and had no issues. I love this course and the price has been great. Keep up the good work guys

My friends and I decided to get a round in Sunday late morning. It was a perfect day and it was my first time playing here so I was excited, my friends however have played before at this course.

My first experience was less than par. Once we came in to check in we must have waited at least 15 minutes before someone showed up to check in our tee time. When he did show up, he seemed frustrated which then translated to him being a bit rude with us. Once we checked in we were told that we had to go get our own carts from the gated barn area. WHAT?!?! Do they only staff one person on Sundays? After about 25 mins we finally get our round started, luckily we were there way before our tee time.

The course was pretty fun to play. I love the blind shots, its very strategic. Greens are in very good shape! I really enjoyed that. We had no hold up until we finished our first 9 holes. At the turn we walked into the club house where we must have waited another 15 minutes!!! Only one person staffed, a line of people at the counter and we had to wait to get a hot dog because the only one person staffed was busy checking people in for there tee times. Hire two people for weekend golf or have hot dogs ready!

We got on with our second nine and we were making good pace until we ran into a hold up around hole 7. I saw a lot of single golfers which should not be allowed on the weekends, should be paired up to keep pace. The single guy in front of us must have been hitting 3-4 balls each shot! And no ranger to help keep pace on the course.

Very disappointing for my first time golfing here! There were a lot of things that seem to be mismanaged. But, I would come again to see if my experience is different. Would give it a second chance and the cost wasn't too bad for the course.

Hiltop puts all possible tee times on the site whether they actually are possible or not. They put tee times out there even before sunrise. We booked a tee time for around 9:30 AM, they wouldn't let us golf because of a frost issue. No other course in the area had this delay. Someone who had a 8:30 tee time had been there getting the run around for an hour before us. The staff at the course said it was our problem for booking tee times that early. I used to come here a couple times a year, def won't consider again

I want to start by apologizing for your poor experience at Hilltop. This time of year does provide an unpredictable challenge when it comes to frost with our morning tee times. We want nothing more than to provide a great experience for you and all of our guests and we should have done a better job of explaining the situation and the impact frost has on the turf and specifically the greens. If you would like to discuss your experience further please contact us in the pro shop at (734) 453-9800. We hope that you allow us the opportunity to provide you a more enjoyable experience next time. Thank you for your feedback.

People reviewing this course before me have left out that the layout here is great. Yes the holes are close, but I challenge you to find a course with more undulating fairways. Throw in a few elevated tees and tree hidden greens, and you have a really enjoyable course to play.

Pace of play was okay considering it was Sunday afternoon. Everything else was good or at least average. However, maintenance on first 3~4 holes was bad. Tee boxes and greens need be fixed.
