Worst course wvwr
By far the worst course in southeast Michigan. Poor conditions, poor signage, mean staff, bad greens, bad tee boxes...
If your looking for a country club or a pristine course this is not your place. if your looking for a decent course that is cheap and usually has openings anytime this is for you. The set up is confusing on 11 for sure and a few other holes, easy to get lost and they really, really need some clear signage with direction. Everyone i know who has golfed there has got lost. Some tee boxes need work,, fairways are ok as well as greens. Look, it's a good course if you want to get out and play 18 for a cheap price. It has faults but if your not a golf snob, want to get some practice in, play a round for 20 bucks or less on a very playable course, than this is your basic bread and butter course to do so.
Decent course in good condition at a cheap price, what more do you need
Worst course I've ever played
Management has just plain neglected the course. First off if one thing can tell you the neglect, they seeded all the bunkers on the course. The only bunker left on the course was a par 3 tee box. The greens hadn't been mowed in days and you could tell. It was difficult to tell where the fairways started and stopped. The staff was friendly and the beer was cheap, but those were the only bright spots.
Great course--Dont let the price fool you
We booked a Friday afternoon tee time on line for two golfers ($40.00 for both including the cart) and were just looking for a change of pace on a Friday afternoon. I was not expecting a lot, but had a wonderful time on a great course. The first hole is nothing to write about, but after that you encounter a variety of terrain, uphill, downhill shots on holes which are tight in some places and wide open in others. I really enjoyed my round and my buddy and I will certainly be back.
We played on June 22 and the course was in really nice condition and the pro shop and ranger could not have been nicer.
Course is rough. Tee boxes not well maintained. Fairways grass is too long. Greens had a lot of debris on them. Some holes ok and others not.
Very User Friendly
Course generally is in much better condition, but I think the rain has hampered the conditioning. I will give them a pass on it. It still is in better conditions than most courses in this price range. It's a shot-makers course. Make shots and you will score, don't make them and pay the price. The course has a little bit of everything. I have played it a number of times over the years and always enjoy it.
This course looks simple but it will fool you. Ball placement is everything.
I played a day after heavy rain so there were a number of spots puddled and soggy but not the courses fault. Overall it is a decent course worth the price and usually has openings when most others don't. Course layout makes no sense when 13 and 18 are involved and if it's your first time you can easily get lost finding 11, 12 , 13, 18 so layout gets a hit. But value and the course are very nice,
COURSE NAVIGATION AWKWARD AT TEE 11,
GROUNDS PRETTY MUDDY AND FALL LEAVES ARE HINDERING BEST PLAY.I still would rate it with a 3 star. Would return because it was a good value.
