Great course

Would have been perfect but they had just agitated the greens. Still the ball ran true. The course has plenty of great shots, great lay out, creeks to go over, dog legs right and left. These were shown on the card and granite hole markers. All in all, lots of fun. Couldnt have asked for a more diverse and interesting course.

Wonderful Course. Excellent value!

Absolutely loved this course. I'm from Toledo, OH. This course had more elevation changes than the entire city of Toledo. I played with my brother-in-law - he is a caddie at Inverness (Toledo's pro level course) - he said that Gladstone was about as well kept as Inverness.
If this wasn't the best course I've ever played (questionable) - it was certainly the best value.
10 out of 10. Would highly recommend. We will be back.

Good Value - Nice Course

Passing through the area and stumbled upon Gladstone. Friendly staff, nice course cut through trees, gently rolling landscape, and a very nice babbling brook running through the course. While I have played on better courses, I haven't played on many that are better value for the money. I recommend this place. Wanted to stay for the evening fish fry, but had to move along.

Outstanding Layout

Gladstone Golf Club is an outstanding tract set in the woods of the Upper Peninsula. It is well maintained and the greens are fair. The only sounds I heard while playing was an occasional golfer upset with their shot and the running of the water throughout the course. The course had multiple tee box options and a very fair layout for a senior golfer. It is well worth the trip across the bridge to play this layout.

A UP delight

I try to play Gladstone whenever I'm in the UP. It's a 100 mile round trip from my UP base , but worth every mile. Just a beautiful course, majestic maybe. Lot's of elevation changes, a river cuts through it, and lovely tree lined fairways. Yardage is reasonable for a weekend golfer and the greens were pristine when I played there. They are good at the little things too, like concrete cart paths with extra space near the tee boxes and pretty covered bridges. Three of us played for $59 total from GolfNow, which seemed a little like stealing.
I always talk this course up to my downstate friends.

Excellent Scenery

Very friendly staff. Challenging but fair course. Excellent value. The only reason why the conditions were not rated excellent is due to a serious dry spell.

A MUST PLAY

I VISIT THE UP EACH YEAR AROUND JULY 4 AND ALWAYS TRY TO PLAY GLADSTONE AT LEAST ONCE. THIS YEAR I PLAYED IT TWICE. THE COURSE HAS MANY HILLS AND CREEKS AND CAN BE CHALLENGING FOR THE AVERAGE GOLFER. I SHOT 86 BOTH DAYS FROM THE WHITE TEES. I THOUGHT THE COURSE AND ESPECIALLY THE GREENS WERE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. . THERE ARE OTHER COURSES IN THE AREA BUT UNLESS YOU WANT TO DRIVE TO MARQUETTE YOU WILL BE HARD TO FIND A BETTER COURSE IN THE AREA FOR THE PRICE..

Must Play!!

There was too much rain in the forecast to drive up to Greywalls, so we decided to play Gladstone for the first time instead of the Casino course. We could not be happier to finally get to play here. Its gonna be hard to find a more picturesque course in the midwest. The greens were PERFECT on the 3rd week of May. You can't beat the value of this course and highly recommend for golf and nature lovers!
