Such a great track.

Rewards good shots. Punishes bad shots. Great fast green. This is a new great classic course you would love as your home course. Only paid $49 as hot deal on Golf Now. I pay that to play goat ranches in Texas. One of my top 5 favorites in Michigan.

Hidden Gme!

This course is the hidden gen of Up North golf. Course is in perfect condition, which will challenge golfers of all skill levels. Course plays longer than you think. Lots of risk/reward opportunities around this track. Will be back to play here again, price is good, pace of play is outstanding (not sure we say any other golfers!). Very scenic and definitely has that Up North feel in the woods away from it all. Practice facilities were top notch as well, Driving Range looks like it belongs at a PGA tournament!

Almost Perfect Day

I have played this course about once per year for the past 5-6 years. The layout and tee box choices are excellent and demanding. The staff in both the pro shop and club house are helpful and pleasant. The pace of play was somewhat problematic. No rangers. The in cart computer said we were 21 minutes 'behind pace', and we were a twosome waiting on every hole but the first. Weather was a little hot but otherwise perfect. The course was in great shape except for the greens which were slow, bumpy and appeared to have a bunch of invasive grass (poa annua?) in them. I would go back since the value seems to be there, but am a little disappointed about the greens given the quality of the lay out.

Great day at Black Lake!

We were enjoying a week on Burt Lake and found a nice Golf Now tee time at Black Lake... a great course

we've played before. The 4 of us had a great time...

no records, but a nice day of golf. Also, they have a very nice grill and bar, including outdoor seating.

We had a great day!

Perfect up north golf

I have a cottage in northern Michigan and have played almost every course in the area. Today was my first time at Black Lake and I have a new favorite! Everything was perfect, the conditions were awesome, the layout was extraordinary, the staff was great. Wow. I loved it all. Absolutely one of the best courses in northern Michigan.

Staff a bit abrasive

Very nice course. Showed up with plenty of time before tee time. 8:45 for 9:00 tee. Was rushed to the tee just to wait 15 minutes. Was told by every employee how busy they were like it was new to them. Just not a very friendly greeting.

Very beautiful and tough course

Very nice up north course. Requires more accuracy than most and greens are fast & multi tiered. Not to keen on rangers constantly driving around logging times on a clip board, if pace of play was slow could maybe understand, but I come to the up north courses to get away, relax, & have fun- not to have rangers riding up on me logging playing time.

Worth the drive.

A fantastic, pristine course. Not overly challenging for a 12 handicapper but you better hit your landing area. Worth every nickel.

Love this course!

Probably the best maintained course I have ever played. It would be a shame to miss playing here just because there are so many great courses on the west side of the state. Make the effort to play here.

A must course..of many great ones around the area!

This course is busy. Never seen it not busy. But they put in pretty good effort to keep the pace of play. A great course...and I've seen more than 20 up there and this is proably 1-3 that I must play when I visit. O-H. Great staff too.
