Idyl Wyld

Course is pretty tight. Tee boxes are too close to greens and errant tee shots can be an issue. There were a few too many blind shots to hazard areas which are definite problems for playing it the first time.

Good shape for all the wet weather we had

After days of rain, of course some of the course was wet but, in good shape. The greens were surprisingly in great shape and fit wet conditions, pretty fast and lots of hidden breaks. Well try again on a nice sunny day!!!!

Unkept

There were those hellicopter seeds all over the greens which made it extremely hard to putt. Lots of thick tall grass just off the fairway making it almost impossible to find balls. Clubhouse has very few food items and the restaurant that serves beverages and food doesnt open until 2, so early golfers cant get any food or drink on the turn or during play. We started at 11 and the beer girl finally came out when we were on the 17th hole.

Short track/Fun time!

This course is great for what it is. It’s a short municipal course that attempts to make things challenging with bunkers and water. Staff was great especially consider what our state is going through. Thorough enjoyed everything!

Great Course for the Value

It was a fun day out on the course and a beautiful day, but on hole 12 we were not told the flag was moved up and placed in the middle of the fairway. It was a surprise to our 4-some and we honestly didn't know what to do. The fairway was mowed very low, however it did not hit well and it seemed like a wasted hole. It would have been good to know this ahead of approaching the hole from either the ranger or the pro shop.

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.
