Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
A favorite during our summer vacation here, did not disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I was pleasantly surprised with The Legend. I was expecting Cedar River to be spectacular (and it was)....but The Legend was a phenomenal golf course too. Spectacular views of Lake Bellaire on a couple holes add to the beauty. Plenty of elevation change to give it some character.
This was an incredible experience. I enjoyed the course and my wife enjoyed the scenic views of the woods and homes!!!! Unreal. I would play this course anytime!!
Great Course to Play
We loved playing this course, also wished that the weather was better. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to play around and between storms. We all agreed to play it again when the weather is better.
Nice Challenging and Scenic Course
Conditions were great, pace of play excellent and certainly a gem of a course. Elevation changes in the course are significant so be prepared to use an extra club on many holes.
Had a great time playing this course, and the layout was amazing. The course was in great condition and the greens played pretty fast. I recommend it to anyone with any handicap, well worth the money. I will definitely be back again.
Northern Michigan Must!
Challenging course with an awesome layout. We played our entire round without seeing or hearing any other golfers.
Northern Michigan at its Finest
My first round at the Legend was an enjoyable one. I was absolutely astounded at the elevation changes and overall course conditions - pristine and manicured perfectly. Given the month of October, there was nobody else on the entire course. Fairly wide fairways and challenging, yet extremely playable greens. This is in my Top 3 favorite Michigan courses, and I've played many.
Course was soft in mushy in spots. Excellent green conditions. Nice northern Mi experience.
Fun layout, great vistas
Excellent golf holes, many requiring different shots. Generally the course was in excellent shape - the greens have undulations and several tiers, rolled true but could have been faster. Difficult to determine pin location. Great deal, a must play for the price.
Very Nice Course
Great layout with some real challenging holes....lots of uphill shots to the greens....often requiring 1 or 2 clubs extra. Played long after recent rain. Surfaces.....tees and fairways were excellent; greens rolled true and VERY FAST....but with heavy play, numerous ball marks that hadn't been repaired. Great price with a "Hot Deal" on GolfNow.com.
This course was a pleasure to play. Arnie did a great job with this golf course! Beautiful setting & course was in fantastic condition! Loved everything about it!
Great course for the money
This is one of our favorites, saw a great price on golf now and we could not resist. Course was very busy, so play was slow, but the course and weather were worth taking in the views. Will certainly be back for more!!
Worth the trip.
Dramatic elevation changes, picturesque views and immaculate course conditions earn this course an excellent rating. We played early and had no issues with pace of play because we were the first on the course. I can't address pace of play in normal conditions. It was foggy when we started so we had to send out one player as a spotter on the first hole which we couldn't really appreciate because of the fog. The fog lifted by the third hole, and we really enjoyed the rest of our round. I would like to play this course again if the opportunity arises.
Has some trick holesd
For the average golfer there are some very hard and blind pins. That what makes it hard no to go back to.
I'll keep going back to beat the course.
the price was right
this was the 2nd 18 of the day, the price was right and the pace of play was perfect. Didn't see anyone until the last two holes
The Legend and. River are a Great Combo
Perfect companion to Cedar River at Shanty. Conditions were excellent and we found everything about the course to be a great experience.
Highly recommend playing this as a match with Cedar River at Shanty.
One of the best
The Legend at Shanty Creek Resorts is always a fun and challenging course to play. The beautiful vistas of Lake Bellaire on the third and fourth holes never fail to impress. Though we had a bargain rate this time, it is worth the usual cost of $45 to $60. While you are there, also get a round at Cedar River, Hawk's Eye, and if you are up for a real challenge, the Chief.
