Would return

Pace was a bit slow on occasion but to be expected for a single. Elevation drop and climb can be difficult to judge at times .White tee boxes could be a bit more forgiving
and can play long especially on a windy day. All in all for what I payed it was a great course.

Fun round, great course, bunkers need work

A great layout that offers generous landing areas off most tees. Only disappointment is the bunkers. They have tiny pebbles in them and need more sand. They really don’t match the quality of the conditions you see at this course. We got a hot deal for $65, but if you are paying $100 for a round, you would expect the bunkers to be better than your local muni.
Still enjoyed my round and will come back. Hopefully some future investment is coming.

Good course, but....

This is a great course in terms of manicure and layout, but it is not worth the amount they are charging. There is no governance over pace of play and it seemed as though there were many inexperienced golfers, which is not conducive to the course level of play.

We will not go back! Although we really enjoyed the pub staff and cart girl Kyli!

They just overbook the course

The layout of this course is pretty cool, standard up north Michigan course. It was just so disappointing to play in a twosome and have the round take near 6 hours. There were several group in front of us who seemed like it was their first time golfing and had no idea what pace of play is. Then they sent out the head pro because we called and told him they were playing each hole in 25-30 min. He drives up to us and just tells us there’s nothing he can do because there’s too many groups. Well buddy you shouldn’t have overbooked the course. Also the greens were very average. Wouldn’t recommend this course to anyone.

Pristine Golf Course!

If you haven’t played Hawk’s Eye, it’s a must
In Northern Michigan, Not a lot of Water shots
Some deep Bunkers though, Perfect fairways & Greens.....lots of Elevation changes 200-300ft
Great views & plenty of Wildlife.
I thought the value was good, We jumped on a Hot Deal, and got to go out as a twosome, Pace of play was no problem as the caliber of Golfers was good.....Staff was very friendly....You’ll love it

Hawks Eye on a Bet

My friends said to play Hawks Eye so I Purchased the hot deal off Golf Now since I have wanted to play this course for the last three years. We played on a Monday morning and were able to play a twosome and play at a good pace for twelve holes. The foursome ahead of us really slowed down on the back nine but ended up quitting so we were able to finish on our pace. The course is outstanding and the greens very large and receptive. It will help to know the greens next time since they have lots of slopes and elevation changes

Wow

What a great course. Staff friendly. I was so impressed by this layout. Literally most of the holes could be their signature. Every hole was by itself and the elevation change was impressive. I would definitely recommend.

Beautiful course

Amazing course to go out and test your skills, challenges off the tee box, challenging approach shots and putting is a tough one. Layout is beautiful but the course could be kept up a little better for the price. Overall great course and experience.

Great value! Diamond in the rough in NW Michigan

Hawk's Eye is a tremendous value in NW Michigan. Always in great condition, especially this year with all the rain we've had. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Pace of play is never an issue. Highly recommend playing this course if you get the chance!
