Good course Good pace Good price

All is great at this course. However I would bring cheap golf balls. Lots of wetland and unplayable areas that eat your ball. Can’t find it. Especially if first time playing. Not long but not easy.

Great day!!!

Hadn’t played there in long time but it was great day for golf. Played straight through with no waites which was unusual for how busy it was. Carts were good. Various tee boxes which changes some holes immensely so you can fit your skill level.

Pierce lake

Very scenic course With a lot of wasteland. Blind tee shots and elevated greens. Tough to navigate the first time around. Looking forward to playing again.

Great value, variety, choices and challenge

I've been playing this course several times a week on average since taking up golf 7 years ago. The layout and holes provide a good challenge to the intermediate golfer. With tee boxes well designed to change the look of many, if not all the holes, taking the course from easy to challenging.

For the amount of play the course is always in great condition. Greens had been running slow this year with all the rain, but are starting to speed up. There are several holes prone to cart path only when rains are heavy.

Speaking of cart paths... In need of major repairs across the course. Along with most all of the cart and walking bridges in need of replacement. Heard these items are being scheduled for repairs.

Some additional features on the course would be nice, like a fairway clear bell on #15 and steps to the #18 green. Upgraded sand in many bunkers would also be nice.

Along with upgraded carts to include GPS and windshields!!! These have almost become expected at every other similar quality course I've played.

Course conditions would rate 5 stars with those additions.

Club house has the basics with friendly staff and great service.

It's always been in great condition and some challenging holes. Plays well for all skill levels.

Pierce Lake Golf course

I have been playing this course since it was opened. It is one of the best public courses in Washtenaw county! The greens are comparable to those you find at Leslie Park or the U of M Big Blue course! Keep up the good work!

Pierce Lake “All grown up”

I lived in Chelsea for several years. That was in the early 90s. I played this course when it first opened and remembered a few of the holes but it’s been at least 15 years since I played it. It’s a great track and it’s a great value. The course has matured and taken on its own personality. Very impressed, it’s worth the drive and I’ll be back.

Great condition for the weather

It’s been especially wet the last few days, but there was minimal standing water on the fairways and almost none of the greens (only 1-2 low spots on edge locations). Many puddles on the cart paths, better than on the playing area. Didn’t see a single bunker with water. Overall, very impressed and will go back soon to play (rain or shine). Open front 9, with minimal carries over grassy areas, Creeks, wet areas. Back 9 is tight, with many carries from the back tee boxes and some for the front tee boxes. Challenging, but straight forward.

Pierce Lake

Great Value

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
