Good Course

Overall the course is in good shape. Given it's November and you can still play in Michigan is a blessing and also course condition was good. There are a few challenging holes which keeps it interesting and a fun course to play.

Great course layout.

Great course to play any day of the week. Holes are long enough for a challenge. Green are well groomed and well kept. Will definitely be back.

Greens Keepers Revenge

The course had a Greens Keeper’s Revenge scramble tournament yesterday and forgot to put the pin positions back into their normal spots on the greens! It was virtually impossible to make a putt as all the cups were on crowns or downhill spots on the green! The clubhouse staffer was fair and gave us a free complimentary round good until next year!

Don’t you think this a silly reason to give them a 1 Star?

Great Course

I would definitely rank this course as one of my better experiences in the Detroit metro area. Preface: There was a light drizzle, and we were the first group to play so hard to comment on pace. The course has a myriad of holes ranging in difficulty, but all have a spectacular view. At the price point, I was very pleased with the course maintenance, scenery, and course layout. What more can you ask for?

Entire course was aerated. Nothing was posted about it and no discount was given. Greens were like putting on a plinko board, and most fairways your ball would be resting in a hole. Course has been decent in the past for me, but I have no desire to replay it after my last few experiences.

Very enjoyable

The course was amazing for the eye as well ad the play. The white tees provided adequate yardage for my skill level. It was unfortunate that the course got quite a lot of rain the night before and they had cart path only in play. Slows play down for everyone. Other than the wet conditions, the course was in great shape. Nice fairways and greens. Enjoyed playing the course. Will return shortly to play the course again. Hopefully with dryer conditions.
