Played The Falcon on Labor day and it was horrible. The course was in horrible shape as the fairways were like sponges (and we haven't had rain in forever) and were half dead. There were mole traps all over the place and the greens had a lot of dead spots. I have played here before and it wasn't nearly that bad. Your pace of play gets slowed dpwn tremendously with the kickball golfers that share all of the holes with you. Being associated with Eagle Eye and Hawk Hollow I expected more, but I have played farm courses that were better. Save your money and play the putt putt at Hawk Hollow....

This course is built on top of a bog. This means that the ground is very spongy and is incredibly rough. It was miserable to drive a golf cart around the course even the "cart paths" were awful. there aren't really fairways either, just shorter rough. There are also randomly placed mole traps around that you have to be mindful of. I would recommend skipping this coarse all together. I really wish I could get a refund on this one.

Played on this challenging, fun, links-style layout after work. Played in 1.5 hours. Only payed 10 bucks. And was home in time for dinner. I know its only a par 31, but from the back tees it might be the toughest 9 in Lansing in relation to par. I will be back.

The Falcon is a Links style course so there is ample landing room on the fairways and greens. Which makes for a very enjoyable round of golf without the headaches of having to carry 240 just to hit a playable fairway shot. It was a surprisingly beautiful course and would be good for a quick round or a mixed skill event where broad appeal and enjoyment are the main goals.

The Falcon was not what I expected. Very well kept but no mature trees and short holes. However, because I am a horrible golfer, this was perfect! I would go again.

This is a nine hole course that is a great walk. It is so lush the ground is like a sponge. Fabulous for stretching out your calves while you're pushing your cart. I like the walk. It's an executive course, no par 5s. I play from the blue just to add a bit of length and work on my hybrids. I need a lot of work.

they have no facilities here at all. It's a shack basically. But we like it.

Just a 9 hole, links style course. Not a ton of trees; however, putting a ball left or right will drop you into extremely long brush. Overall, course was in decent shape, not as well manicured as a larger course, but still a decent course to get out and do 9 holes in a hurry. Course is away from main road; making for a quiet and peaceful round.

I booked to play without knowing anything about this course, and with such a low fee I wasnt really expecting much. It was a par 31 (wasnt expecting that though), so very short. It is still very early in the season so I anticipated a rougher-shaped course, which was certainly the case as there were numerous spots throughout which appeared to be in the midst of a repair. However where there wasnt work being done, the course was in pretty good shape for the time of season.

**I recommend this course only as a good course to work on the short irons, but for anything else youd probably look elsewhere. The staff was very friendly
