great interesting course
Greens are fast and course is in good shape. Great value!
Beautiful course with fair fairways. The greens were at times unfair. They were so undulating they were either extremely difficult to hit onto or pin placements were just very difficult
It's your average municipal course. It's fairly flat on the front nine, a little more up and down on the back. The greens are very undulated, some holes borderline gimmicky.
17th and 18th are my least favorite. They are both severe dog leg holes, where you are forced to lay up short then long shot into the greens. You get one glimpse of the water from the clubhouse. That's it for the view.
For $36 Golf Now special, it's just ok.
Outstanding course, Pleasant surprise !
First of all, the (New) proprietor David, was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We found a “Hot deal” for this course on 9-14-19, and were so happy with our experience, we played 27 holes the next day!
The course was in EXCELLENT condition from tee to green, and these greens amazingly were true, fast and challenging !
The front and back nine are like two different courses. The front is rather open and has room for error on many holes. Its a great warm up for the tighter, tree lined, elevation changing back nine where ball placement is key, and smart golf pays dividends.
I will definitely play this course again when I’m in the Crystal Lake Mi. area, and I would recommend that you do to!
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.
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.
