Great value for a good course

I played here on a windy and cold day and still enjoyed my round, so that must say something about the course. The greens are pretty challenging and there's an appropriate amount of elevation change. There are some pretty great views of Crystal Lake as well. For your money, this is one of the best values in the area. I'd definitely play here again!

Challenging, unpretentious golf

Positives: awesome greens , great layout, nice lake views, accommodating staff, great deal ($99 for foursome)

Did not affect play but be aware some playable areas have more crabgrassthan bentgrass. They need sand filler tubes on carts. Need trash containers

I would play this course daily if I could.

Nice, unpretentious golf

Greens are great, challenging, but fair. Great layout. Nice view of crystal lake on some holes, back nine more wooded.
You can get a 4 some for $99, so great deal.
Not a complaint, but some playable areas have more crabgrass than bentgrass.
Staff very friendly, we had a good dinner of burgers/barbecue pork.

Play here if you good challenge without resort snootiness.

hidden gem

This is my favorite course in the Benzie County area within the moderate price range. Course is well maintained with constant improvements and updates. Dollar days (mondays and thursdays) are a long-standing tradition with $15 for 9/cart or $25 for 18/cart. If you prefer to walk on dollar days, it's a dollar a hole. Dollar beers and hot dogs !! Staff is always friendly. Golf pro on duty. Deck overlooking the course with great views. Event tent offers catered events.
