I have played Verona Hills about six times. Every time has been a great experience. The staff are always knowledgable and friendly. The course is always in great shape and challenging to play. I was able to play half the first nine with a couple of members. It is always more fun to play with members as they usually can give you some tips on course management, which they did.. I also got a great deal. This is one of the nicest courses in Michigan's Thumb. I will play this again in the future.

An errant shot can cost you big time. Very challenging course requiring soft high shots to greens. A good drive on the fairway can still leave a difficult shot due to the pitches, mounds and hills on the fairway. Several blind shots. A very difficult course, but interesting well maintained layout.

This was my first time at Verona Hills and I expected to see a country course layed out in a nice section of farmland. Well I was surprised. The course was great and well worth drive. We play the course via a GolfNow Hot Deal which was the icing on the cake.

I really like this course. The greens are a bit challenging because they are fast and have quite a bit of break in some places. Fairways were very nice and layout is awesome. One of the best courses in the thumb hands down.

Great course. It's one of those out of the way courses that everyone should make a point to play. There are some very forgiving holes and some very tough holes. Greens are smooth and fast. Staff was very friendly.

I really enjoy playing this course. The greens are big with a lot of brakes, but putt very consistently. The tees and fairways are very well maintained and the natural terrain was used to make the course interesting and challenging. I love it and wish I could play it every day!

Enjoyed a round with a fellow classmate and met a former teacher in the pro shop.

The pace of play moved right along.

Verona Hills is a great golf course. Our group was surprised by the hilliness of the course. The course was in great shape, the greens were fast, and the sand traps were OK (we had been warned they were not in good shape). There are a lot of doglegs, creating blind tee shots but the hole markers and card show the hole, so it wasn't a problem. Some of the greens are two tiered and somewhat undulating, so it does challenge your putting. The staff was friendly. Overall, we had a great experience, I only wish it was closer - it was a 90 minute drive for us. I highly recommend this course.
