Played well. Course was so average.

The course is not that well maintained. There wasn’t even a pro shop, you payed inside a trailer. There was no place to buy food, there weren’t even water jugs on the course. A few tee boxes are in really rough shape, and there was a hole under construction. The pin was in the middle of the fairway. It’s the only course in Livonia that does not have GPS in the carts. The price to play the course is very reasonable, but I guess you get what you pay for. Not a very long course either. I enjoyed the day, cause I shot really well, but the course itself is rather crummy.

Very dry

Only time I’ve ever played here. We haven’t had much rain lately after a getting way too much. The course is dry and hard. Not sure if they have sprinklers or not. If they do then not sure why they haven’t used them recently, most of the greens were extremely fast and rock hard. Many good shots that just kept going right off the green. May try course agin if i find another good hot deal. But i would have to be after we get a few days of rain!

Get rid of cut grass

There was so much cut grass laying in piles, your ball would be barely off the fairway and you could not find it.

Hot garbage

Couldn't tell the difference between rough and fairway. Seemingly hadn't cut the grass in weeks and there were giant clumps from when they did. An entire green is under construction, shortens the hole by over a hundred yards. No signage, no warning from the pro shop.

Teed off 30 minutes late due to double booking tee times, which were already stacked.

Several issued were raised to staff. Various responses included "well we got your money" to "it's your job".

Fool me once...

Hello, thanks for the review. We see you rated the course 1-star. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We take single star feedback very seriously at our course. We always appreciate the feedback. Please reach out to our team in the golf shop. Thank you for playing Idyl Wyld Municipal Golf Course.

Average course

Management of tee time was below average causing our time to be pushed back by 30 minutes mainly due to the cart path only rule. Pace of play was very slow due to cart path only rule.

Booking Issue

After pulling up to the course and seeing 6+ carts in line to tee off on the first hole, I knew it was going to be quite backed up. They advised me that they had a system issue and everything was double booked, but no resolution was offered. I need off almost 30 minutes after my tee time and it was packed the entire day. Grass was not cut well; It was very choppy.

course was too wet for them to cut the fairways so they were in horrible condition and took forever to find the ball in the taller grass. Really disappointed to see they changed out hole 12 to flatten out the green. This course is already short and easy enough, that was one of the challenging holes we all looked forward to. Poor choice.

Hello, thank you for reviewing Idyl Wyld Country Club. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us.

AS USUAL, THE STAFF WAS EXTREMELY COURTEOUS. THE COURSE PLAYS SURPRISINGLY MORE DIFFICULT THAN ONE WOULD PERCEIVE FROM THE DISTANCES ON THE CARD.

Mismanagement

Tee time at 10:16, we don't tee off until 10:45. At 10:30 we asked the manager if we can do the back 9 first because a large outing was before us. The back 9 was wide open. We were told no that one we did the turn we would have to wait anyway. Yes but not for 7+ groups playing very slowly. We made the turn at 2:40. A 4 hour round of 9. Multiple groups of 6 were seen but the rangers didn't seem like they wanted to do anything about it or the slow play. Hole 14 I think is a 300+ par 4 according to all signage and the scorecard. Instead it's a short par 3 in there middle of what is normally the fairway with the green not mowed at all. I understand courses need to be maintained but why no sign? I've played this course before and my family nor I will ever again. We aren't snooty people, heck we aren't even good. We just wanted to spend a fun day of golf together but not for almost 7 hours.

Hello, KCC21885. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We take single star feedback very serious at our course. Please reach out to our team in the golf shop. We always appreciate the feedback. Thank you for playing Idyl Wyld Municipal Golf Course.

Idyl Wyld is a great value.

I play at Idyl Wyld on a regular basis and also host my annual golf outing there. The course is in excellent condition and is very beautiful. The pace of play is usually pretty good. (Except when the local high school team is practicing) The staff is friendly and Jason is an excellent Pro and teacher. The Pro Shop is small but they are well stocked with the necessities and One Under Bar and Grill provide great food and excellent service as well as outstanding accommodations for golf outings. I give it FIVE STARS!

Short course

Okay course but the pace of play was pretty bad you had to wait on every t- box, made me feel like the course over booked. It's also a shorter course.
