Great municipal course

Groesbeck is a great municipal course. For the price, one of the great values in the area. Only played 9 hoses because two holes on the back 9 are being rebuilt. Looking forward to playing 18 when the construction is complete. You can't go wrong playing a round here. Course is in good shape with a nice mix of easier and challenging holes.

Nice long fairways

Price was a big draw. Could only play back nine due to front nine in refurbishing. Will try the coarse again.

Nice course for the cost

First time here was enjoyable. Course in pretty good condition. An older style course with some pretty challenging holes. Some of the tee boxes were a little close to the previous green, but aside from that, the layout was picturesque but challenging. Water & trees come into play on several holes, so good tee shots are required to avoid trouble. Would definitely play again.

Hope You're Not In A Hurry

It was a beautiful day and the course was play ready and the staff was helpful and friendly; but the pace of play was very slow and frustrating. The groups were too close together and tee times poorly scheduled. Would also be good to have a way to not have to carry golf bag up the hill to the clubhouse. Some players are not physically able to do so.

First time in a long time

I haven't played this course in years. It was renovated (the course not the facilities) quite a while ago but I just thought of playing here due to the great rate I got at Golf Now.

The elevation changes are the biggest surprise here, many blind shots to the greens. The course is in pretty good shape but the tee boxes aren't!

It was fun to play here again, it's been a very long time.

The course has some challenging holes

I like the course and would recommend to others. I like it because there are some challenging par 5 and a few holes that I can drive.

Nice course

The course is okay for being city owned but i am surprised at how all the staff are so rude and unfriendly. they could lighten up a little. The course is in okay condition and can be better.

Always a good time

Being only 4 miles from my house, I tend to play Grossbeck quite a few times over the summer. The course is always well kept and you don't need a tee time to play as a single.

Upset

They had an old men league and they would have set me off in the middle of it but i told them nevermind because it would have taken over 5 hours to play.

So they had a league, still they tried to get you on the course to play and you give them a "would not recommend"? Sounds like you are unreasonable.

No Frills, but who cares

The playing surface was good. The course has more elevation changes than expected; it was my first time playing this track. A good course for the money.

Possible the best municipal course around.

I have to say that if you are looking for a pro shop full to bursting with all the newest stuff then this club is not for you.
The course on the other hand has to be one of the best in the area, It is well maintained and not just by the staff. While playing I couldn't help notice the lack of pitch marks on the greens that seem to be left by players on some of the more expensive courses in the area.
I started my round before 10am on a weekday which got me the early bird special of 18 holes for $18 including cart fee. For this price there really is not a better course around here.

Good value

Course card makes it look short but the holes are layed out in a way that protects par. Just be careful with wayward tee shots because some tee boxes are easily hit from the home behind it. Topography is impressive for the area.

front tees..easy..back tees..demanding..greens in great shape

I enjoyed playing with my foursome..not to serious,but keeping score. clubhouse is sterile,much like a city owned course,but they do a super job on maintaining the course.

The Best It's Ever Looked

The Best this course has ever looked in the 15 years i've been playing it. Seems like since the closing of the other courses owned by the City of Lansing its appears as those they can focus on their gem. I'm going back in the next couple weeks
