EARLY SEASON START
The course was in pretty good condition for an early year start. The grass on the rough was shorter than summertime, but the greens played pretty fast. There is some standing water as expected with the late warm weather. Pin placements were good. Fairways were dry and kept up nicely.
Front nine is open and straight forward I found some of the tee shots on the back to be blind shots and gimmicky. Until you play the course a few times you are not sure where to hit on the back
Slow slow slow
Ran int a FIVE-some on 2nd hole. Was told they would let us play through, which they did. Ran into ANOTHER FIVE-some on hole 12. Called clubhouse and got a bunch of excuses. Turned around and left. Only finished 12 holes. Never again!!
For the money, this course disappointed. Flat, not that challenging, mediocre. Our guess that it’s the relative close location that makes it so pricey. Seems no one replaced divots or fixed the greens and they were in bad shape first thing in the morning. Won’t play here again.
Great course , difficult layout from the tips. The only thing that would make this course better would be an outhouse with plumbing, ports-johns at a course like this better than nothing.
The price has kept me away but a little help from Hot Deal rewards I thought I give it try.
Plays long and that makes it difficult for short hitters.
Will likely not play again unless it a bargain. To many holes where I am hitting a 7 wood or long iron on my second shot.
Regardless it is still a very nice course .
Stay below the hole!
First off the tee at 8am. 3.5hrs for 18 holes. Great round, Very good course conditions.
I knew the Golf Pro, so I played 18 for $35.00.
Great course and some holes were very hard.
Typical City Run Course
Greens are a problem although there is a issue a most courses this year. A Saturday afternoon 18 holes water jugs are all empty no cart girl to be found, I called from course and they said we are working on it. Cart girl came by on the 18th hole.
Another example why government run anything never works.
With the exception of about 4 greens, which were a little rough, this is a fun course to play. Several of the holes require thoughtful shot making, but it is wide open enough to accommodate players of all skill levels. I played with my wife and another couple and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the layout. Of course we got a deal online and only paid $25.00 each. The one drawback is the pace of play. Waiting for most every shot on the back nine, led to a slightly more than 5 hour round.
Beware the greens
Normally a top course but beware the conditions this year. 6 greens were in dismal shape and some others with very distressed areas. Greens have been a strength in the past at this course. The problem is the proshop staff do not warn you of the conditions of the greens and the fact that there are temporary greens when you book or show up to pay. When asked about it afterwards the less than helpful staff said that it would take too much of their time to do so and that most other coursed in the area have the same problem which is utterly false. Not worth the money for the condition.
one of the best
This is one of the nicest courses in Oakland County. It's expensive but it's worth it. The only problem I have is pace of play as it takes forever to get through 18 there.
