Played this on a hot deal today. Conditions were above average for this time of year and we were one of only a few groups on the course. I really enjoy this layout as it is very fair and right in front of you. The large undulating greens allow for creativity in approaches and chip shots. This course if 30 minutes west would fetch about twice the green fees. For me, I’ll drive for this price on this quality course
Great course! Nice layout. Greens are in great shape!
Have played this course at least 14 times and have brought a lot of friends to Pierce Lake and any time I want to come here I can get people to come here. We enjoy the layout even the tough holes.
Rangers could be better
Very Good course ....need a driving range though. Also, the rangers on a number of occasions are not doing their jobs. Pushing groups when there is no need and not pushing when there is a clear need. Also, I have noticed when playing in the evening that these guys must want to really get home because have witnessed and heard from others stories of people not being able to complete their rounds even when there is light for at least 2-3 more holes. Pump the brakes guys. Customers paid for their rounds please let them complete them. It is a BIG turn off for people....;BAD for business - does NOT seem welcoming.
Good challenge plus nature
Our home course. We play from men's forward White tees, which greatly reduces forced carries over wetlands prevalent from Blue/Yellow/Black tees but still has plenty of challenge. Holes are separated from each other usually by trees. Nice natural setting, with the noise from I-94 only on the holes adjacent to the freeway. Course is always in great shape - even through this year's hot, dry summer. Friendly club house and on-course staff.
The Pierce Lake course is a really good track with a nice mix of holes to challenge all players. From the open front to the narrow back. But pay attention to your landing zones and angles on several holes that “appear” wide open. Holes like 1, 5, 10, 11, 15, and 16 need some strategic thought depending on your tee box.
Course has played wet a lot this year... drainage issues????
Why did you take away holes on the practice putting green? A move in the wrong direction IMHO.
Driving net and better chipping areas would move my rating to 5 stars. A couple other suggestions too:
Add a fairway clear bell to #15 and steps down to #18 would add some nice features to an already good course to help pace of play that can vary quite a bit.
Course was in good shape. Features several challenging holes. Some very large greens. 5 sets of tees so you can select the one fits your game. Friendly staff. We had great time. First time playing here and we will for sure be back.
Excellent Muni Course
Visiting from Tennessee. What a "Hot Deal". Had a great time playing this course. Pleasantly surprised to find that this course was so much fun to play and in terrific shape. The greens are large and just the right speed. Not too fast nor too slow and they're in good shape w/out a lot of ball marks. If you keep the ball in the fairway i found it to be pretty easy. The vegetation just outside the fairway is thick and tall. I'm a 12 handicap and i shot 84 today. Could have scored 2 -4 strokes better if i'd chosen iron or 3 wood off the tee on several holes. There are a few holes that'll deceive you the first time playing. Oh, GREAT friendly staff from pro shop to maintenance staff. Definitely will play again.
I love this course! It reminds me of being up North just miles away from home. The course is in great condition with nice variety in the hole layout.
Lowest round of the year.
I played yesterday and shot 84. Today I was staring at a 75 but tripled #17 to finish with a low round of the year 78. I mean any one can score well when the course is in perfect condition. In spite of no rain for almost a month, the course is in great condition. I hate to recomend this course to anyone because I want it for myself. But the truth is, one of the best in Mi for the last 5 years. Make it a must play this year. Thank you Pierce staff for a great course and friendly staff.
Excellent greens, challenging layout and good pace of play. Very nice course, we would play it again.
Played here many time.. have never disappointed. Good lay out , this time green was slow though but still enjoyed the round.. staff are friendly and curtious.
Course in beautiful condition
It is always a challenge to play this course.
The weather was extremely hot, but the inherent challenges here causes one to focus on each hole. Had a very good round that moved along nicely. Professional staff! Highly recommended!
