Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
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.
Great day for golf. Course was in great condition. 4th time I played it.
Best of Michigan for a decent price
Teens were well marked good to better condition
Ruff a little long
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!
This course is in excellent condition with the exception of 2 greens. Challenging layout with sloping fairways.
Natural, and exceptional
The course is in the best shape since I began playing it 10 years ago
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.
Great conditions, despite no rain for about 6 weeks. Fairways and greens were excellent.
Perfect day for golf. Not a flat course by all means except the T boxes! Very challenging. Fairways in great condition. Greens great and challenging. Will definitely play this course again.
Fair course design.
Played The Natural several times, no goofy holes. It's a good value in a area with over priced golf courses
Great Course; Pace Toooooo Slow!
The course was great as usual! Good value for the money. But the pace of play was too slow! 5 hrs 45 mins to play 18. Tee times too close together; especially when foursomes are playing not just for fun, but have wagers on their play. Tend to think they're professionals and the pace slows down. Group in front was playing in a group, and were playing a scramble, so it too more time for them to chase down all the shots. We will play again, just not on a Friday afternoon in the summer.
Sounds like someone needs to get up earier! I never wait for anyone when I have the first tee time. Anything else and you run that risk.
My Final Review
This is my last chance to boast and brag about The Natural. I've done a few reviews on here, but I'm leaving 5 stars this time.
It was a damp day with minimal wind but the course was in the BEST condition I had seen it, especially during the peak of the autumn season. I can't gloat enough about the fall colors bursting everywhere. I spent more time taking pictures of the orange and red leaves than I did focusing on my game. Barely any leaves in the fairways, greens, etc. It was excellent.
Had the entire course to myself which was not a surprise given the weather conditions. I managed to shoot under 80 with three penalty strokes on front 9. This course is a GREAT VALUE in the Gaylord area and I will always return every season until if conditions ever detereoriate. I doubt they will!
The course was ran very poorly. First 6 holes went fine then it started to back up big time! Wait on every hole was long. When we finally got to the turn there was three foursomes waiting to tee off... There were a lot of younger groups at the course and they were loud and rude. There pace of play was horrible and there was no one working at the course to get them moving. When I suggested in the clubhouse that something wasn't right I was scolded for daring to say they weren't running the course very well... we decided to play the front 9 again only to have it all backed up again by the 4th hole... Needs new management!
