Great fun with Hubby!

We played this course for the first time about 3 weeks ago. The desk staff was harried, not nice. Turns out, there was an outing and not all participants had arrived timely. We decided to give them a second chance and I'm glad we did.

There are three courses available to play. We didn't play The Natural the first time we were here. Don't miss the opportunity to play this nine. Hills, valleys, swales, flat fairways were all in play and made for great variety. Don't attempt to walk this nine...you'll regret it!

Just a short drive from Binder Park Zoo, you could hear the train whistle signaling fun for the kids!

Great layout, great course condition, & friendly staff.

Absolutely loved it. Great layout and the condition was near that of a private club. Friendly staff. The course has everything you want in a golf course and is moderately challenging but fair. Cannot wait to play it again.

One of my favorite courses

I love playing Binder Park, beautifully kept course. Greens are tough, layout is excellent. 27 holes so you are able to change it up. Staff is friendly. They are very good about regulating how many are on each set of 9 so that you don't get backed up very often. I really like playing this course and can find great deals on golf now.

27 worthy holes

With three unique nines you can almost always get golfing even without a tee time. They do have leagues however and an occasional outing so best to call ahead. Course is always in pretty good shape, greens fairly smooth with gentle to sharp breaks. The trees will require that you hit straight tee shots on lots of holes and you will need to sweet spot your driver to get past the 150 marker on some par 4s. Ron the pro is great, his staff...a bunch of good folks.

What a great track for the money!

Played mid day on a beautiful Friday afternoon. Was rather surprised the golf course wasn't busier for such a nice day. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the whole operation from arrival to departure was too notch. I've payed twice as icy for courses half as nice. Greens rolled true and fast.

My only complaint is the did not have sand on the carts to repair your divots in the fairway. I replaced what I could during play but that sometimes felt inadequate since the course was in such nice shape I wanted to leave it just as nice as when I arrived.

If you haven't tried this hidden gem you should it's well worth the drive.

Super Impressed

I played Binder Park for the first time with my wife. I was extremely impressed with the course conditions on the Marsh and the Natural. Unlike many courses this summer, I saw little dormant grass or blight. Greens were excellent and played true. I definitely will play again if in the Battle Creek area.

Wonderful Layout

Really enjoyed our round on the Marsh and the Natural. The landscaping and course conditions were excellent. Finished the 18 holes in 3.5 hours on a Friday morning which is pretty good. The holes were varied with some being spot golf while others were doglegs. I thought some of the holes played longer than the yardage indicated,. This is a great municipal course and would highly recommend it for others to play.

A fun day.

had an enjoyable round. The pace was somewhat slow, but we were a threesome, playing amidst foursomes. The weather was hot, but there were plenty of water jugs available on the course, every 3-4 holes.

Binder park always worth playing

The course can be very difficult if you are unable to find the fairway from the tee! It was playing firm and fast. Excellent facility, from the 3 practice holes, range, 27 holes of golf and clubhouse with plenty of choices for food and beverage.
