Poor customer service at Magnolia Landing

We made the turn during this 97 degree heat. We went into the snack bar area to get a drink and a quick sandwich. The bar person said that he did not think he could service us because we would lose our spot on the course. He went to check with the pro shop and they insisted that we go to the on course snack bar. We really just wanted to sit in the air conditioning and cool off. I gotta tell you that I have played hundreds of courses but NEVER have been turned away at the snack bar! I asked the pro shop person about this and he insisted that we could not have got a spot back on the golf course. We had NO ONE behind us all day! And even if we did, there was so few golfers in this heat, that there should not have been a problem continuing our round. I brought 5 other people with me. I am greatly disappointed that they would worry more about the pace of play then our health and safety!

Great Course and Resort

I booked a stay and play through Hawk's Eye for a group of 8. The entire process could not have been easier. Nick was great to work with from beginning to end.

We played Hawk's Eye, The Legend, and The Chief. Although our group enjoyed all 3, we agreed that Hawk's Eye was clearly the best. The layout is great and peaceful. We had rain off and on all weekend and the course was in excellent shape. If you are planning a golf trip to Bellaire, do not miss Hawk's Eye!

Beautiful course in a beautiful place

Hawk's Eye is a must-play when visiting Bellaire and Shanty Creek. It has its share of tough holes but nothing that would scare off golfers of any level of skill. The staff was super friendly, and it's so cool to sit out on the big deck watching golfers come up the holes in front of you.

Hawks Eye Gem of the North

I have played several courses up North, including Tree Tops, Tulkymore, “The Legend”, i.e. and for an up north course I think for the cost and value Hawks Eye is just as beautiful and challenging as many of the aforementioned courses. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, but save your energy it’s a very long course that ends with 2 par 5’s and a par 4

Slow play

Don’t play Saturdays! 2:30 for front 9. Then 5 groups stacked at 10th tee. Tee times 7 minutes apart; too tight. No Marshall. Staff gave us a rain check when we quit at 10th. Great course. Bad timing.

Hawk's Eye was a great find.

While visiting northern Michigan, we try to play one "special" course. We have played Treetops, The Donald Ross Memorial, and The Monument. Hawk's Eye was equally fun to play as these courses. It is challenging and beautiful. We loved the changes in elevation. We will look forward to playing it again in the near future.

Great course!

This is a great golf course. Fun layout, challenging holes. The day we played it, the hole locations made it very very challenging. The course seems to have lapsed in condition. We have played it the last 5 years and this was the worst we have seen it. The greens were very nice, the tees were ok but the general condition of the fairways and rough were not up to the usual here.
