Totally miss managed and outrageous pricing. Hot Dogs were $7.50?????? Talk about price gouging. No rangers on the course to keep play going. Very slow and no help from the course. I would never recommend this course to anyone and am very disappointed that Tree Tops booked this as they are such a class act and a wonderful place to play and stay.

Love this quirky layout

Fabulous layout. No two holes are the same. Great variety on this tight and very hilly course in perfect condition. Definite shot placement course. Greens true and fast. I play it every year when I visit this area, it is one of my favorites.

Awesome Golf Course

The course is extremely well kept and the layout is fantastic. It was a challenging course, but not overly-difficult. I can see why this is one of the top rated courses in Northen Michigan. I'll definitely be back!

beautiful course

Very nice layout, agree w other reviews - great kept secret N Mi course - not many people on course, great layout, narrow, well maintained; only issue might be - greens a bit slow compared w say Boyne courses, Gaylord CC, and Little Traverse Bay.
