Nicely maintained golf course

We played a warm sunny day. We haven’t had rain for a couple of weeks so the fairways played firm and fast. Greens were also a bit hard and some well struck shots did not hold the green.

It’s a very hilly course with several doglegs. You will use every club in your bag and this very hilly course. There are a few blind tee shots and to score well you need to be properly positioned on the correct part of fairway.

Close to home

I have several courses within a half-hour of my home. I chose GLV West because I hadn’t played it in years. I love al the GLV courses, but I think West is my new favorite. Great staff, greens were in perfect condition, and it was a beautiful day.

bob

11am tee time on the west course - pace of play was very good - greens were slow, perhaps due to recent rain...tee shots were hit in pretty wide open fairways; up hill, down hill & doglegs...gps targeted directly to the hole & appeared quite accurate...greens were quite large with fair amount of undulation...

Tale of two sides

First nine holes on west side were excellent. By hole 12 pace was horrible. Finally with three groups on hole 17, we packed up and left. Golf courses need to make money but dude,!that was ridiculous!

Nearly 2 hours and 45 minutes for 9

In defense of course, Michigan has had continual rain. Therefore incredible amount of unseasoned players on a sunny day. Dreadful slow round, no continuity. I left after 9 holes despite paying for 18. Very unhappy with the experience.

Gull Lake West

Played West course Memorial weekend in a foursome. Only seen a couple golfers on course which seemed weird but weather may have played a factor and was nice but concerned me. I have played all 6 courses and even though West is probably the worst of the 6, it is in great shape and challenging. Honestly the collection of courses that are offered is fantastic. If I were to rank all 6 it would be....
1. Stoatin Brae
2. Stonehenge North
3. Gull Lake East
4. Stonehenge South
5. Bedford Valley
6. Gull Lake West

Pace of play

This is a really nice course, with some really nice length par 4s that if you find the fairway, you can have a birdie chance. However, the hardest hole on the course is a long par 3 with a deep green. The back side has more uphill holes starting on 11, a rather short par 3, but don't short yourself, and a long par 4 that plays longer than scorecard uphill. The home hole also is the same as it is a long, uphill par 5. The major problem we had was on the day we played there we took a later am tee time, and there was a foursome of women who played every shot, and to be honest, they should have picked up at "double par". Please control the pace of play when it comes to this!!

Awesome!

I have to say, we were first group off that morning and what a beauty course! Nice challenging shape shot holes! The pro shop staff was the best out of the 5 courses we played this long weekend. Very friendly and really personable! Will be back next year and will stay at the villas!

Gull Lake View Perfect Once Again

My wife and I hadn't played this course in a couple of years and found it in great shape. Fairways and greens were beautiful. The course has some challenges but is not difficult to play.

The staff here was friendly and the course was full but not at all crowded.

Good course, tough for seniors

Course is in excellent shape, but it's natural properties, EG water hazards and very soft spongy fairways, plus many up hill blind shots, make it a very difficult course overall for seniors.
