A fun and hilly round

As the name implies, Champion Hill has some pretty good elevation changes. The scenery is fantastic, especially when the sleeping bear dunes pop up in the distance as you're finishing the front. I played early in the season, so I'm not going to judge conditioning so much. The greens were in great shape for early season but the fairways need some warm weather. The design forces you to use some strategy off the tee even though most of the fairways are pretty wide. Most of the par 3s are pretty lengthy, but the par 4s usually leave a wedge in your hand after a good drive. I'll definitely play here again. For the price, it's a great northern Michigan golfing experience that has a fair deal of uniqueness.

Great Golf Course

A favorite golf course of mine when I vacation in Michigan. Beautiful scenery, combined with a solid golf course. This is a second shot golf course. Plenty of room off the tee, but in order to score, the ball has to be put in the correct position on the undulating greens. Careless putting will produce 3 putts as well. Green speeds are moderate, if they were fast this course would demand a terrific short game. The greens are sloped and you have to know them to manage them. I love this course. Beautiful vistas, wildlife, wildflowers, and great golf.

A true links course test

For the price you cannot beat this course. If you like links courses and want a real challenge at a very fair price this is your place. Off the tee you have generous landing areas but if you miss you will be in tough waste areas (think Pinehurst #2 at the 2014 US Open).

Approach shots gave you the opportunity to fly the ball to the green or hit a bump and run.

Greens were undulating and fast.

If you are in the TC area and want to play a links course but do not want to pay $150 to play at Arcada, give this a shot! You won't be disappointed.
