A MUST to play if in Lansing

I was pleasantly pleased to see how nice the course was. I really can't think of anything to complain about. Moves up into my TOP 5 ever played. I hope to make it back up there again when heading up north.

Best Round of the Year

Conditions were perfect. Greens roll true. Tee boxes manicured and flat. Fairways tight. Rough grabs the club (as it should). A perfect day with my best round of the season. Loved it.

Great course, perfect conditioning and truly outstanding staff!

Had time for only one round in the Lansing area. Wonderful time playing on lush conditions and great greens! Very friendly, helpful and professional staff! Cory was especially great!!!! Routed through the woods and somewhat tight off the tee but very playable! Word to the wise.... Keep it in the short grass!

Really Nice

It was very challenging with the amount of water lakes on the course. Played from the blacks and the course felt long because it rained the night before. Very little roll but the greens were very receptive. There was 27 holes so the pace of play was fantastic.

Great course, well worth it!

The course was in great condition for the weather we have had this summer. The greens rolled true, and were speedy. The slopes of the greens is really what makes this course. I have played some great courses around the state and this is definitely up there as one of my favorites now!

Booked hawk hollow for the first time this year and got a hot deal so price was unbeatable, me and my friend have made it a point to play here at least once a year for last few years. We live and hour and a half away and it's worth the drive everytime. The course is in the best shape I've seen it in for last couple years, the staff was great and we never wondered where the cart girl was, since it was 90° it was nice to have a cold water cooler every few holes. I highly recommend going here.

Felt like being home in Savannah

This was a wonderful experience and the course was in excellent shape! I wished they could’ve stopped it from raining!! The entire staff went above and beyond to take care of everything I needed. I didn’t want to leave so I played another nine holes! I have only been in Michigan for one year but this is one of the best courses around......too bad I couldn’t give them a “6” rating!

Favorite course around east lansing

Great course. Perfectly designed. Rewards you for good shots and punishes you if u don’t hit it straight. Plays much different from tips compared to blues. But both tees are fun to play from. Greens, fairways and tees are always in great shape.

One of My Favorite in Lansing, MI

Hawk Hollow is one of my favorite courses in Lansing, MI. The course is fun, a bit challenging especially 17 & 18 coming in, but fair. Most landing areas are generous and the course layout is fun. I would highly recommend it. For $37 (hot deal), I'd golf it every day!

Nice but,,

Very nice course but I’m not sure I would pay full price $69 to play. $40 was enough.
The cart paths are in very bad shape. You would think that a highly rated place like this would repair these.
Also made the turn to find no food ready to grab.Its not hard to cook Hot Dogs.
Good course for $40 , not $69.

Course needs many upgrades

Had played other courses in the area recently, the other courses were mowed and in much better shape. Still winter tough, leaves and slow greens. Cart paths need to be renovated this course has spent very little money since they opened years ago on course maintenance and atheistics.
