I've played Mistwood (they have three nines) dozens of times. Excellent hole after excellent hole. Superb, fast, challenging but not silly (this is meant as a great compliment) greens. This course is also perfect for walking (which is what I always do). . Greens and tees are very close. If you want a 90 foot uphill golf cart ride after every green go elsewhere. The courses have wonderful rolling landscape with almost no "cardiac" hills. There is a very good driving range. Nothing what I'd call fancy here. But the golf is superb and reasonably priced. Love this place.

Played here on vacation after dropping one of my kids off at Lake Ann Camp just a mile or so down the road. Greens were in great shape. Layout is fair and fun. Bunkers had enough sand. Super-friendly staff. Snack bar has all you need but the bar/restaurant has good food, albeit hours that aren't the same each day. If you're vacationing west of Traverse City, add this to your rotation as a good value place to play.

Havong played this course regularly it is very sad to watch it deteriorate.

this was all premium bent grass fairways and greens

rocks in sand traps, moss on greens and gairways left in disarray

This may be the last we see of Mistwood

Unfortunately, I have to say that Mistwood has declined significantly over the last 2 years. My group of 30 has decided not to play Mistwood anymore for 2 main reasons. Their pricing is not competitive with other local courses and their overall turf condition is sub par.

It's really sad because Mistwood used to be among the best of the local venues and their greens were perfect.....not anymore though!

It appears Mistwood is on the verge of folding. The fairways were dirt and weeds. The tee boxes were completely neglected. The greens looked like they haven't filled in yet from last years aeration. The one person in the pro shop was very friendly. The restaurants and bar were closed. We were there at 11:30 am. on a Monday. So sad to see it in this condition. We have played it for years and have watched the slow demise to the very poor condition it is in now. Way too expensive.

Played the Red/Blue course. The Red 9, was not in very good condition. Tee boxes were pretty chewed up, Lots of clover around the greens. Some greens were 25% covered in Goose droppings. Blue course was much better condition. Greens were fairly fast. Both course had plenty of landing areas. Overall, fun to play.

We played the blue and red nines. The course has a nice layout, but its condition is poor. The fairways must have had a lot of fungus as the grass was sparse. The greens on the red course had moss and dandelions. The tees on par three holes were very gouged out - had to look for places where there was grass. No graphic images of the holes on the scorecards. Few ball washers. Most of the tee signs did not have images of the holes.

This course is not as easy as it looks. It has a lot of ups and downs and the greens are tricky. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They called to let me know I was booked behind a huge outing and got me out quicker so we didn't have to wait. After suffering a 3-1/3 hour 9 hole round at Cedar River the day before, this guy was a real blessing! I will continue to play this course everytime we get up here. It is a real value and well worth the drive from Traverse City.
