Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
Course was in good condition considering all the rain we've had. Cart paths were in rough shape and the traps were full of water, but we had a great time. 1st time there and it was a bit of a challenge with the tight fairways and water hazards. Liked it a lot !
Fairways were well maintained, and held there challenges. Every hole had great layout.
Didn't know it rained so hard here. Everything was saturated. We had the course pretty much to ourselves except for the couple in front of us. I think they were drinking to much. The greens were very soft. I must have fixed two / three ball marks on every one. Hopefully, it will be dry next time we play here.
I usually give this course good ratings however, yesterday was not a good round. Took the two of us 2 3/4 hours to play the front nine and a few minutes past five hours for the whole round. Very frustrating. Also, Vargo Golf had better pay more attention to course maintenance. Wet weather has taken its toll on the fairways, rough and greens.
Pace of Play Sucks
I've played this course at least 20 times over the past 10-15 years and the pace of play has become awful. Never saw a marshal. Done with this course.
Fairways and greens are in great shape.
Be aware you need to hit fairways to play well. The rough is deep and difficult advance st times.
Will play again soon.
Thanks for listening
My last review covered the cart paths and condition of the club house. I'm happy to see the cart paths are being repaired and while I was there I saw someone on the roof picking the weeds / trees out of the gutters. The course itself was in nice shape but, I don't understand why some of the ponds are almost empty and some are full! It was an enjoyable round even though we had to skip a hole due to very slow players in front of us,
Twilight rare, poured after 4 holes, asked for a 9 hole raincheck. Turned down flat. I ve used Goldenhawk for 4 wedding and baby showers for 2 of my daughters. Still have one daughter to go, her showers wont be at Goldenhawk.
My wife and I play this course at least 5 to ten times a year! Course is always in excellent condition! One of the best golf courses around for the money!
The recent sun and heat wave has taken its toll on the terrain. The ponds are at very low levels. The greens however, are still in nice shape.
A Little Worried
While the course was in good condition, the cart paths are still in dire need of repair. You have to drive around all the deep pot holes on the grass which is killing it. The exterior of the club house needs some TLC. looked up and saw 2-3 foot high weeds / trees growing out of the gutters. I'll still go back again because I like the course but, I hope things get fixed soon.
Course in great shape
Course was in awesome shape and you can’t beat the price for 18 holes!
Best in the Area
I always like playing here because you can count on the course conditions being very nice, The greens are a little slow but, one can adjust to that. It is also a good value for the money compared to others that I drive by to get here.
Great course, but a 4x4 quad instead of a Golf Cart is needed.
My ( our ) only complaint is the conditions of the pathways. They are bumpier then a Michigan Freeway. How about some Gravel, or better yet, asphalt?!? Everything else was excellent.
