Good course

This course is very fun to play, with a mix of short holes to long par 5's. The greens were one of the most challenging I have encountered.

Wet weather

course closed due to weather

Rain opened up before we teed off. Half hour later, there was so much rain they closed the course. Trying to contact GolfNow is a joke. No one to answer the phone. No way to cancel on the web site. Guess I'll have to contact Am Ex and dispute the charge

Beautiful course!

The maintenance of the greens and fairways are superb. The rough is, well, rough. I lost a few balls there. Some of the distances are challenging for senior citizen females like me. It's hard to clear at least one of the gullies. The staff member was very helpful. I LOVE the carts, with the water and brushes for ball and club cleaning. It's such an asset during the round when there's no water on the course. I look forward to playing there again. The price was great, thanks to Golf Now.

Around the bend

The holes have some good challenges to them, mosty trees. A few holes are a straight shot to the hole, but there are quite a few bent lanes that make the course enjoyable and challenging.

Greatly underrated course

This is a great course. What you see from the road does not show the course. Fairways are in great condition, Greens are excellent. Some challenging holes that will peak your interest. Scenery is Northern Michigan at it's best. Staff is friendly and efficient.

Great Course

It's always a pleasure to play at Twin Birch. Had two buddies who had not played the course in a long time and they both agreed that it was great and they would come play again. Friendly staff, greens were great as well as the fairways.

The course is in great shape.

The layout is is set up nicely. It makes you use every club in your bag. Not just driver/wedge.

Course was in excellent condition, appeared to be only booked, as pace of play was slow on the front nine, much better on the back.

Twin Birch

Course great shape. GREAT greens. Golf Now on the other hand, NO GOOD. Overpaid by half dollar because Course senior rate same 7 days. As always, found your deals (excluding Hot Deals) are within 2 to 3 $ of what course charges. Found this in FL often. Supreme Golf, controlled by you the same. Tee Off Times owed by tour same. All sites set EXACT same prices.
I fail to see significant value.
