Norway is Gem of 9 holes

I was visiting family in Cadillac and had a few hours on a Sunday morning to play nine holes of golf. Picked this course because I had played it before when the resort was under previous ownership and I wanted to see the changes the new owner had done to the resort. The course was in amazing shape! Huge improvement over last time I played it. Even with a heavy dew the greens were quick. Only complaint was the sand in the bunkers wasn't raked from day's previous play (and the guy in from of me didn't rake either but since it was early, they probaby hadn't had a chance to do that yet. I'll be back to play The Spruce and definitely The Norway again.

tough but fair course

we found the course in great shape. greens were a little difficult to read. narrow fairways, so we left several balls in the trees. overall, a tough little course but fair.

Beautiful Northern Golf Course

We played on one of the hottest days in the earning afternoon. The pace of play was a little slow, but I think that is because there was a large group that went off before us.

The course is very hilly with water on just a few holes. The course was in very good condition. The greens were fast with some tricky undulations.

Would definitely play this again when we're back in the area.

Spruced up spruce course

Had a day that started out cool, and windy but cleared up and became warm. Course was in good shape even though there was heavy rain the day; before didn't affect the course too much (slower greens), a few wet areas but overall course in good shape. Greens/fairway well maintained, but not consistent for all holes.

Just a friendly course to play as long as they don't plug the course with too many golfers. Long travel times between holes can cause some hang ups when course is overloaded.

Not a short course

Friendly staff. Kids to help load and unload bags. Snack hut at turn with burgers and brats. Beverage cart came by 3-4 times. Nice course fairways are fair with trees lining both sides. Holes are longer than most courses in area. Definitely will return.

Great Course - Great Value

Golfed on a rainy wet Saturday; but it couldn't have been better! Started out wet; but soon the rain moved off; no sunshine! The course was in excellent shape, a little soggy on the back nine, but still was enjoyable to play. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Understand that this course can get busy being associated with the resort; but we'll be back.

Nice golf course

The course was in good condition for this time of year, the staff was very friendly, and the course was not busy at all. I play here a few times every summer and am never disappointed! Cheap rates for an above average golf course!
