Game on!

Arnie carved an A1 course into some beautiful Michigan terrain. Generous fairways get narrow and serious real quick. Study the accurate GPS in the cart and choose your club wisely.
A Michigan must-play just like the signs say.

The Ravines is a great experience

I hope this isn’t the last time that I golf The Ravines. It sure was a treat to play. The course is in private country club conditions, especially this early in the season. Tees are firm, greens are firm and fast, fairways are generous. Then there’s the Ravines. Sometimes you have to tee off over them. Sometimes you hit over the Ravines to the green. Then sometimes you have to layup to the Ravines at a particular distance. The Ravines makes you use many of your clubs in your bag To navigate throughout. The Ravines is a great experience

PERFECT

Heard great things about this course, but no one experienced what i had the chance to. Courses have been closed for over a month in Michigan and just reopened less than a week ago, i was the first group of the day and seems like course hasnt been busy since reopening. Conditions were PERFECT. A little cold and greens were actually slow (i think from not being played on or so long and the rain) but im still saying it was perfect. Since no one was out, pace of play was dictated by me and my buddy, and the group behind never came close to catching up. I wish i could go back but im only here for a few days, but will be back next time. Ps only paid $25!

Excellent Day

My husband and I played the front 9 walking today. We transformed our double stroller into a golf bag carrier (with a cooler). Day was perfect. Pace of play was great. We never felt rushed by the people behind us or annoyed at the people in front of us. Everyone was out to enjoy the sun and the golf. Thanks Ravines!

Challenging but fair

Great track which requires a little bit of course knowledge to score well, but a challenging yet fair course.

Workers were busy

The working crew with the cleaning of the swamps wasn’t aware that golfers were trying to make shots around/over them and wasn’t very interested in getting out of the way either! Slow playing on the back, foursome was playing very slow and not a ranger in sight

Tough and Fun course

This is an Arnold Palmer Course and it shows! The. Course is really well maintained and is tough but playable, most fairways are reasonably wide and the greens are fast and beautiful, a few bugs but not bad considering the rain they have had. Enjoy!!

Really Nice Course and Good Value

Great layout, fun design, in great shape and and nice value. I played first thing and unfortunately the grounds crew was not well trained. They were often in my line, kept their machines running, or just flat out ignored I was there. That was the only blemish on a beautiful round.
