Most underrated course at Shanty

This course is not the most challenging. But the course conditions were the best and the green speeds were consistent from green to green. They were extremely fast. If you have a day to play and think the Legend or Cedar River I would give Schuss a try.

The course was amazing. From tee-boxes too greens, it all looked great. The only downside was, the food was a little on the high price. Hotdog was $4.75 but no drink or chips. Nothing special about the hotdog. Other then that, perfect golf course.

Great Up North Course

This is a fairly open simple pretty golf course. It doesn’t feel like it is punishing you yet has some challenging hills, bunkers and long par threes. Not much water around the course.

Schuss Mountain

Wow! What an experience. Great, Great course. Played all over Northern Michigan and this was our favorite. Fairways, greens, and tee boxes all in excellent condition. Price was great and so was the pace of play. Have to do this course many times more

The day we played was the last day of the year for the S. Mountain course to be open, the course was in pristine condition! Greens were great, layout was enjoyable. I played with my wife who had the best time she's ever had on a golf course thanks to the GolfBoards we rented instead of a cart. These things are amazing! Worth playing solely to use these awesome rides! Only complaint would be that we got stuck behind a couple of slow foursomes but that meant we could take our time and she didn't feel rushed (she's a beginner so it was a fair pace for her).

You'll love it!

We stumbled upon this little gem while in the area. We play several courses in the immediate vicinity of the Schuss Mountain Course. Courses that are priced at 3 times the fees for this one. This course offers slight challenges. Plays very tight (you have to hit them straight). It was constructed in 1972, so it has matured. It will always be a course we return to as we finish up our golfing season.

what a treat!

The course layout is challenging, many elevation changes, yet fair. Greens are difficult, very moundy, hard to read, quick, but rewarding. Can't say enough wonderful things about the staff. Our only problem was that on the back nine, it appeared a foursome started on 10, old coots, didn't much care if they held anybody up, apparently thought they owned the course themselves. This is our second time playing this course and loved it twice as much as we did the first time. Would highly recommend to golfers of every type. Look forward to playing it again next summer on vacation.

Average layout, but near perfect condition

Played here because we didn't want a crowded, difficult course for my wife to play. We were scheduled to be paired with two others, but the very nice starter got us off by ourselves, and we were able to play through two other groups.

First off, the day was perfect, and the course in near perfect conditions.....smooth, fast greens, perfect fairways, raked bunkers.

For guys, it is difficult to pick a tee to play. The white tees are over 6,500 yards, which is long for most players, while the silver tees are only 5,600. I picked the silver, and on the front nine it was difficult to pick a club and line off the tee.......dog legs at 160-200 yards, worry about hitting it too far, but could not see what was around the corner in most cases.....and then after hitting less than driver, you had a 150+ second shot. Front was tight and kind of confining, and flat. Back nice opened up a bit, and was more playable...more hills, prettier and more fun.

Overall an ok resort course for couples.
