Staff could be more professional

Pine Hills was a solid course, reasonable prices, and well maintained. The workers are friendly but only a few people do their jobs. A good chunk of them are rude and disrespectful to customers. (Not all the workers are though)

Fun challenging course. The carts aren’t the best. But fun course for the money.

The layout of the course is a little different as it has some short par fours and more par three’s than normal. Fun course to play but could of been in better shape with mowed and watered fairways.

This course is somewhat challenging

The course is fun to play and has nature all around. The layout allows you to use just about every club in your bag.

Good course for value

My friend and I have played this course a few time in the last year. This was by far our best experience at Pine Hills. The older gentleman who was running the show today was beyond helpful and nice! The course was in great condition even when not in the fairway (which was often for me today)! Loved the nature out there today. Only hard part was 18. A little misleading as to how the hole is but we got thru all 500+ yards. We will be back! Thank you for a great afternoon on the links.

Good course for the money

The course was nice - pretty short but required good shots. The fairway and most grass was super dead and like hitting off cement. We had a nice time.

Good value

Always seem to get the worst cart they have. Spend sooo much time trying to get the things to run/move. Ruins your golf vibe dealing with a sub par cart.

a real gem between Flushing and Saginaw

Had a blast visiting Briar Ridge today - the GM, George, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and made me feel welcome as a first time visitor. The unassuming clubhouse is surprising well appointed, as was the pro shop/check-in area. I didn't get a chance to sample any food this time, but will on my next visit to rate my favorite dine and compare items (cheeseburger + fries!) The course really struck me as being in remarkable shape for it being opening week, and the near invisible and courteous grounds crews were out in full force keeping the boxes, fairways, and greens in the best shape as possible. The track plays somewhere between easy to moderate challenge, which for me, early in the season, was a relief as I golfed pretty good today. You can never complain too much when your drives are mostly in the middle and your irons are clicking! Overall, I had a really fun time and enjoyed the round very much - I will be returning near mid season to see how nice things can improve over the early season, but very acceptable, conditions.

Perfect for practice

Our first time out in a long time so we wanted practice. Cheaper than driving range and nice long fairways. Fun time and the nicest people

Don't waste your money

Terrible layout, terrible condition, ancient carts. It's obvious no one cares about the golf course and hasn't for a while.

Hidden Gem

This course is in the middle of nowhere.. unlike many of these majestic courses that are popping up across mid Michigan, Pine Hills has the look & feel of a course we all grew up playing on. Great rates. Super friendly staff. It's a course I plan on putting in my rotation to play once a month if I can.
