Could be good

Course is in pretty bad shape for the most part minus the greens which were in good shape. Drove 45 minutes thinking that I was going to be playing a top course in southeast Michigan to find out that’s it’s mediocre course. Sad because it a fantastic layout .

Challenging, but fun

Based on reputation, we’ve had this course on our goal list all summer and it was well worth the hour’s drive to play it. The course has more elevation changes and sloping fairways and greens than typical southeastern Michigan courses which created unexpected challenges on top of the many water/marshland hazards and abundant sand traps. The course is very scenic. Fairways in good condition, but greens and tee boxes are in rough condition. Looking forward to playing again and hope for a better score (and maybe a few recovered balls) next time around.

Not as nice as expected

Not sure why but the course was rather wet despite not having rained in several days and it not being early in the morning. Also, several areas including the greens were in poor condition, little or no grass. Bunkers were as hard as a rock. Pace was very fast and staff very helpful and nice but the course needed more work.

Just like Northern Michigan Golf

A taste of Northern Michigan Golf in the Southeast area of MI. Front Nine fairways were beautiful and well kept - The back nine the Greens surpass The Fairway quality.
Things that can be improved; 1. Need Ball cleaner 2. Beverage Cart was average at best with the stuff they were selling. Not a great variety of drinks!! WATERS AND Gatorade were not Cold- Snacks were none existent. THE Cart girls were great!! And very friendly.
Better Signs for the hole. Locations 4. Maybe. Water- it was 90 degrees Areas of water jugs are high 5. Bag drop off area!!! 6. Did I say Beverage Cart / Snacks lol - I know they are small things - Small stuff like that is what sometimes separate courses. Catering to the Golf lee should be evident.
The Preserve does a great job but can be a top course if those things are improved I will return and being friends and maybe just maybe will love to do an outing Will see how the t goes. . .

Coyote preserve 7-6

Loved the coarse...glad went off back early as day got real hot real quick. The back is tougher. I loved the par 7 par 5 double dogleg. You best have your a-game. A little rough on green 17 but looks like they are correcting it. Overall "very good" track.

Great course, but not anything else

Let me first start of by saying I enjoy playing Coyote. I went twice in a week, but let me tell you the pace of play is the worst I have seen on any course I have ever played. Both times I played here it was PACKED. I have no issue with that, but both times when we got there way early for our tee time and they just pushed us to get to the tee box. Tee times are literally pointless. The first time we were held up and packed with 3 in front of us and 3 behind us. The starter basically was there to just collect the slip at the beginning. At one point the second time I was there, 3 foursomes and a twosome teed off in a matter of 15 minutes. The pace of play is absolutely ridiculous. I love how challenging the course is, but please, PLEASE make groups wait on the first tee to get some spacing.

Very well maintained course

The Coyote Preserve is extremely well maintained and is located in a scenic, woodland setting South of Linden. It has the feel of an “up north” course without the long distance travel! The course is quite challenging and fun to play! You won’t regret booking a t time at this course! My only criticism is that like many courses I’ve been to over the last few weeks, they seem to think the COVID pandemic is over. None of their staff in the pro shop or clubhouse wore masks and there were no safety measures i.e. partitions between customers and staff in the pro shop or clubhouse.

Worth The Drive

I was in Detroit area and looking for somewhere good to play. I figured I couldn't go wrong with Palmer.
I was not disappointed.

A very enjoyable round. No bev cart service on the day I played.

Great layout. Nice elevation changes.

Slow

3rd time playing this course, overall great track! But the overall pace of play is terrible here. I don’t know if it’s how the course is laid out but every time I played here it’s been a 5 + hour round.

GEM

This is one of the best golf courses in the state of Michigan. It is challenging sometimes and rewarding other times. But one thing is for sure, it is beautiful, amazingly designed and very well maintained. It was an hour drive that I will be happy to make again in the future.

Disappointed

I had read the reviews on Golf Now and had high expectations. Conditions of greens, tees, fairways were marginal. The Arnold Palmer layout is intriguing and challenging, especially the Par 5 16th which is impossible. But the marginal/poor conditions left me disappointed.

Challenging course with a wide variety of elevations and beautiful views. Planning your way through several holes will be beneficial as trouble can be found by being too aggressive on a few. One of my favorite courses for sure.
