My favorite public course in area

I booked round on Golf Now and was a great price. Was a single and was to be paired up with a threesome. The didn’t show by tee time so the starter said go ahead by yourself if you want. A little slow of pace but much better than an usual weekend. Started to rain and course cleared out and had place to myself and had a great round. I really don’t mind getting wet. My choice. Course held conditions well. Nice challenge and really feels like it puts you in touch with nature. Seen lots of wildlife and is a preTry course. Worth the trip.

Great course

Came from Georgia to visit family, I was impressed with the conditions of this course. Tee boxes, greens and bunkers were in excellent shape and well maintained. The layout is good, a challenging course. Greens are fast, so it cost me in few holes. I am playing again before heading back home.

Great course

Nice challenging layout. If you slice your in for a long day. The only complaint I had was the young kids who were the "rangers" on the course did not do well with moving the pace along. We had a fivesome in front of us playing best ball that slowed us and everyone behind us down. Took our 3some 4:25 to play 18.

Wish I was good enough to play here more

This is a very nice course with a good layout. I just wish I had enough game to really play here. There are a lot of forced carries, tight drives, and blind landing areas for both tee shots and approach shots. I hope to improve enough so as not to lose so many golf balls. If you find a TaylorMade ball, it is probably mine-- but at least I got them for free.

Worth the trip

It’s a little out of the way from metro Detroit but it’s a course worth visiting, plus it’s a great value. Front nine is more open with elevation changes, back nine is a little tighter and more straight forward. As long as I live here, I’ll be out to Pierce Lake at least once a year.

Decent track. Rude staff

I have played this course many times. It is well maintained and offers a solid golf experience for a public course. Unfortunately, the last couple of years the staff has become more and more rude. The people in the clubhouse lack any courtesy, and they are totally inflexible. There is almost no way way to play as two or three without getting a stranger added to your group.

Nice course

Nice local course to play. Relaxed pace and great weather today. Only problem is they need to do something with their geese population. Landed a tee shot by one of their ponds and my ball and shot area were a mess! Other than that it’s a nice course to play.
