Jack Nicklaus designed an absolute GEM in TPC Michigan. From whichever tee you choose, you have a serious challenge in front of you. Every hole has trouble, but presents a risk/reward profile that's unmatched. Every shot requires thought, and you really have to be accurate to have any chance at par. Tee-to-green this is easily more difficult than Oakland Hills (South and North), and if the greens firm up, "fuggetaboutit". When greens are "slow", they roll at about a 10.5. Watch out for hole 14; this has to be one of the hardest par 4s I've ever encountered. It's a fair course overall, and most DEFINITELY one of the funnest tracks in golf. I'm baffled as to how this stopped showing up on Michigan's "Best Courses" lists. Perhaps because it's fully private and small membership numbers? A hidden gem for sure, that lives up to and exceeds the expectations of a TPC course.

Amenities are plentiful, even a sauna and small steam shower if you're lucky enough to pass through Jack's Loft. The food is incredible. A little pricey for some options, but well worth it. Course conditions are exceptional - I've heard they went down in recent years but I can tell you that this year they are as good as it can possibly get, with the exception of my dislike of relatively hard bunkers rather than soft fluffy sand. Not really a course condition moreso than a fact. They seem to be slowly adding the fluffy stuff to some of the bunkers, so I'm assuming (hoping) all will be filled shortly. Surprisingly, no GPS systems in the carts either. Range and practice facilities are perfect, with a hidden members' range in the back.

If you can get on, PLAY THIS COURSE. Come early, take advantage of the range/bunkers/putting area, eat, and then eat again after your round. Well worth every penny.

Difficult Course which was in very good condition when I played. Very Tough to get up and down if you miss in a greenside bunker as they are all well below the level of the green surface and hard to stop the ball from them. Enjoyable layout which makes any golfer use every club in his bag over the course of the round with Driver not the preferred club off the tee on some Par 4's. If you get the chance to play this course do not turn it down.
