Great value compared to other nearby courses

The natural is a beautiful course and was in great shape. Like many of the northern Michigan course the holes are all tree lined and sloped fairways, which makes the course challenging. However, the fairways are not so tight as to be too extreme.

The Natural at its finest

For those that play this course regularly know it just keeps getting better every year. The greens are plush except for a few dry cracked areas on maybe 2 of them. The fairways and roughs are some of the best turf I've seen here in years. No weeds anywhere. Tree removal has been steady recently to allow better growth and it shows. I love this course. I thought 45 was a bit steep on a twilight rate and I know peak is $62. Super tight, tree lined tee shots and approaches. A fine northern Michigan design.

Course looked good in the sunshine

After about 26 hours of rain, including in the morning, the course was drained well. Even though the greens were moist, they were fast. It's a challenging course, with tree lined fairways and undulation.

Nice layout

Great layout and staff was phenomenal. Greens are showing major wear and many dead spots. Our group really likes the layout but the greens may have made the biggest impact.

I will probably return but many in our group were not happy with the conditions and said they wouldn’t return

Nice course - Good time

The course was well maintained and was a pretty open course. Our pace of play was slow because of a large group ahead of us, but everyone was friendly and made the best of it. It was a fun day for us!

Upnorthlive golf card 2019

I recently called and set up a tee time for after 1:00 PM on Saturday like the golf card says to do .The lady answering the phone said I can get you out at 1:10 PM so my dad and I traveled over a hour to get to this establishment for the Lady at the counter to tell us they don't honor the upnorthlive card on Saturday only Sunday through Thursday. I asked why didn't you say something when I made a tee time it's over a hour drive over she said she would call a manager and find out . After calling the manager today 8/7/19 the lady at the counter didn't even call the manager. So after talking to the manager today she said the same thing they don't honor the upnorthlive card on Saturday. I said what about the hour drive. She said the same thing sorry for the inconvenience. There was only ten cars in the parking lot the kid taking care of carts was on his phone texting. They could of let us play but they were just being money hungry. I hope that other people realize that this place is all about the money and not about respect of the weekend warrior golfer trying to spend some time with his dad. I will not suggest this course to anyone I know it seems like its ran by women with a power trip .
