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.

Not bad for a hot deal!

This really isn't that bad of a course. Most of the holes are fairly wide, and the upkeep isn't the best, but definitely not the worse course I've ever played. Dont expect a paved drive, or a huge club house either because this is far from it. I would easily pay another 10 dollars somewhere else to play 18, but if you can get the $5 hot deal for 18 with a cart, its a cheap round that you wont be disappointed about
