My Favorite Course in The Greater Lansing Area
I’ve played all of the courses in the area. College Fields holds its own, compares well to more expensive courses I.e. Eagle Eye and Hawk Hallow. Dollar for dollar, it’s the best course in the area!
Links style golf course on the front nine. The back nine is a bit tighter, especially hole 12. Fairways and greens are smooth and in excellent condition.
A little rough around the edges
Overall, the course is in good shape. Except for some of the greens. It looks as though they have quite a few customers that do not repair their ball marks. The other thing that was troublesome, the maintenance crew dragging and raking the sand traps. We had an 8:36am tee time, with a Sr. League behind us. The maintenance crew was behind us for the first 6 holes, until we told them to go ahead of us as we were getting annoyed of the tractor noise. We understand that maintenance must be done. But with an 8:36 tee time and a league behind us, the sand trap maintenance should have done well before we teed off. Just lack of proper planning by the maintenance supervisor.
Nice Course, but Sneaky Hard
College Fields was surprisingly a fun course. I normally play 6,400 - 6,600 yards, but the Starter told us it plays longer than the yardage from the White Tee at 6,166 because some short Par 3's, two short Par 4's, and one target golf Par 4. We took his advice and we are glad we did because the greens are really tricky and with the morning dew, the parts of the green in the shade had a rooster tail until the sun started drying the greens. It's a fun and fair layout. We plan to be back.
Not a field
Challenging but great to play. We had a great time. STaff was friendly and helpful. 19th hole was relaxing
Greens still a little spotty but it's early.
For the amount of rain we've had course was fairly dry. Good drainage. Greens still pretty rough but I'm sure they will get better.
Great course at good price. Greens a little bumpy.
I love this course. Price was good, but as a result course was packed and pace was slow. Greens were kind of beat up.
A CHALLENGING Track For All
The FRONT 9 is wide open Links with slightly, yet severely elevated greens. Lush fairways throughtout the entire track. Greens always roll True and fairly quick. Good chance to use Driver.
The BACK 9 gets a bit more enclosed once getting to hole 11. Then its shot placement and less forgiveness off the tee, with some very aesthetically pleasing golf holes. Hole 13 is my favorite. But nonetheless, entire course is well groomed and it looks GREAT!!!
They usually offer an early season discount pass, with Black Friday deals.
Pay attention to Pin Placement for the day as many greens have significant slope.
Full Bar, outside and inside.
This course is not friendly
When I tried to go play, I called about 5 times and no pickup, when they answered, I was put on hold for about 10-15 minutes. The staff was not friendly to me at all when I asked them why it took so long. I will not be playing there anymore.
Great course for a group
I came to College Fields with a big group of guys, some of which had played it before.
Very pleased with the setup. There were some good challenges but missing the green wasn't too much trouble as most had a generous approach area surrounding the green.
There are a couple holes were there is hidden trouble. For example, #11. The pro tip was to go for the middle tree at the dog leg. Hit it a good shot very slightly left of that and it went into a hidden pond.
Girls at the patio bar were great. Very friendly and handled a large group of drunk guys great.
I have driven by this course a lot, and never though about playing it. My brother and I wanted some where diferent to play. So I got on golfnow.com and clicked on it. It was only 25 bucks with a cart, so i booked it. Great lay-out, large greens, nice big fairways. I would play it again, and again. Great course.
