better than working

It's sad to see the Onyx in such sad shape. Fairways not mowed, tee boxes pathetic, such a good course just tossed away. This needs to be shutdown and rebuilt, or sold to a developer.

Enjoyed our round

Was told about the issues with the course prior and frankly didn't see anything that concerned me. Maybe I am just not that picky.

Course should have provided pull along carts. Long course to be walking. Holes 13;14;15 feels like two mile or more from club house. JMO

Good course for the price but some issues

Played this course a few times and typically enjoy my rounds although it’s not really a walkable course. Last time out had some issues.

Had to dodge sprinklers on the greens on at least two greens and maintenance staff on various holes throughout the round and we teed off after 8 am. That’s not acceptable even for a cheap price.

Golf league teed off on 1 at the turn and staff didn’t keep the league out of our way (not a big deal except there were literally guys hitting practice balls in the fairway and tee boxes on 10.....).

All in all you get what you pay for so I recommend it if you don’t want to spend more for a nicer course.

3 hr round

Was not a lot of people on the course. Greens were in good shape.a lot of bumpy spots. Tee boxes were not that great. Paid 14 bucks and a 3 hr round I would say good value.

Gone downhill

This course has really gone downhill.
Most fairways are hard and it is sometimes necessary to move the ball to somewhere green (not even grass but weed)
Fairway cutting sometimes digs into the turf. Many greens have brown areas. Many tee boxes are hard. Difficult to get tee in.
The diamond course was in better condition a few weeks ago.
I have played other courses recently in much better shape. I will not be going back here even with a hot deal.

Jewel

Played here a few times. Can't beat the deal you get on this on golf now. My major complaint is they left the grass clippings on the course. They were extremely long as if maybe they trimmed back some of the overgrowth swamp stuff. Its also very bumpy so the dead grass would pile up in the holes. No lie lost like 2-5 balls in the fairway. But for 4!2 on golf now you cant beat it

Not an enjoyable experience

The course was in rough shape. Tee boxes were not well kept. We were unfortunately on the course the same time as the Tuesday morning senior league. They made it blatantly obvious that they did NOT want anyone else on “their” course. The lone positive is that the gentleman working in the pro shop was very friendly. He offered a refund or raincheck which was a nice gesture.

Very nice course if it was maintained better

This course has the makings of an excellent course but the poor maintenance has held it back. The fairways were bumpy and hard but in other places it was wet and soggy. The greens were very slow and wet. The cups hadn’t been changed in a while because the grass was growing into the cup. Pros of this course were that it was a very mature course; the trees were large and were obvious that they have been there for many years. The course winds through the subdivisions of Grand Blanc which makes the course tight and beautiful. I would love to play here again once it has been given proper maintenance.

Holes were overgrown

South side hadn’t been open all year because of rain. Course itself was in decent shape except still have to catch up on rough from the rains. Only problem I had is the cups hadn’t been moved in awhile and grass over the top of hole so lost a 1/4 of the hole when putting

Great Course for the price

We usually try to play here at least once a season .. For the price, you cannot beat this course in our area .. definitely worth the drive for us and although the course was a little wet because of rain, it was still in very good condition.
Tees are fair for Ladies as well Would definitely recommend this course for those who have never played there

I do not recommend this course.

This course was pretty nice .... decades ago but I do not recommend it now. It has really went downhill over the years. I wouldn't play here again and pay more than $10.00.

Bumpy mole like fairways and over watered greens

About 90% of the fairways had mole like bumbs from the tee box to green. It was so bad we couldnt or wouldn’t drive the cart more then 50% speed. The greens were way over watered. They were squishing (water around your foot when you walked) and the holes were half filled with water at 2pm when it was 85+ degrees all day.

Would never golf there again and would not recommend it to anyone.

Hidden gem

Had a great round. The fairways are very bumpy and a few times I thought I was going to lose my golf bag. Greens well maintained and the fairways were firm so the ball got some role. Will definitely return.
