Great surprise

We decided last second to take a long shot and play here. Went totally by pictures and reviews. Greens were very smooth and quick. Lots of interesting holes with generous fairways. Dont live anywhere near this course but will try and get back to the area to play again.

Good shape for early spring

This course is very challenging but if you place your shots and don’t be too aggressive you can shoot a pretty good score. Played early spring and though it was wet it was in really good shape. The greens are very undulating and challenging but rolled really well. Fairways were great and the rough was still pretty short. Most fairways slope quite a bit so you need to land your shots on high sides or you will roll off. The bunkers are deep and could all use more sand and a little work. Did find the cart paths are getting pretty rough. All in all this is a great course with nice elevation and a real northern Michigan feel.

Don't read this!

See the problem is if your reading this, then more people are going to find this diamond in the rough and come to play the course.

This course isthe best all round course we have played all year.

We keep coming back because ofthe course, price, conditions and staff.

Great greens for speedy insulated greens...a few are inconsistent but that is most likely the time of year.

Bring some extra balls if you're are good or a hack.

Under 80 here is a great round. Juniors and families are more then welcome here.

Great course staff and all around great golf

Yes I would play this place again. The course has an up north feel with some generous size fairways and greens.

Greens were a bit inconsistent, but probably because the first 2 weren't cut yet.

Tee boxes for all abilities. I played from the tips and was challenged on all of the holes. My son 9 year old played from the reds and almost made a couple of pars.

This is one of the best courses we have played this year. Very happy with the driving range and practice area.

Coyote Preserve has good golf value

The overall layout is modeled after up north Michigan with sequential and adjacent fairways never touching. Elevations vary hole by hole with much sand and water Challenging tee box locations throughout Greens are difficult to read and true to putt the course is well maintained everywhere. Highly recommend this challenging course. Not for the very high handicap golfer.

You have to like hills and blind shots

If lots of sloping fairways and blind shots are enjoyable to you, this course is for you. It’s not my cup of tea and if in that neck of the woods I’d far prefer the Majestic, but it’s definitely interesting. I highly recommend playing up a tee box, as the course is extremely penal

What a find in Fenton

Wow! Hidden in the small town of Fenton, MI is an Arnold Palmer designed gem. This course is extremely scenic and VERY challenging so beginners should avoid this track. It has numerous forced carries over marsh and ravines, and significant elevation changes. The par 3's are wickedly long. I would have enjoyed having GPS on the carts so I could see the hole or at a minimum a 'Pro's Tips' sheet for us first time players. Pace of play was brisk on a very crowded day. I did not eat so I cannot comment on the food service. As a traveler, I would have liked a better selection of logo shirts in the pro shop.

Gem

Great course design by the King. I wish it was in better shape, but I blame the patrons more than the maintanence. Not fixed ball marks, I raked bunkers etc. the people who work there couldn’t be nicer, gentleman in the pro shop asked if it was my first time & gave me a complimentary yardage book since it was. It was a long ride for me but I will be back, saw some new real estate being build hopefully drawing in a more golf friendly customer base that will take better care of this gem. I would love to play this course in peak condition especially now that I know the layout

Above my skill level.

It was kind of a tough day for me, but the course was in great shape, greens got faster as the day went on. I need to work on my game more before I play it again.
