First Time Playing

Incredible vistas. Friendly staff. Tough play. Fun.

We were greeted by friendly staff to take our bags. I hit a bucket of balls before teeing off. The course was anything but flat and anything but boring. It was a very windy day and this made the track even more challenging. It was fun watching from the tee box as the group putting behind us cussed a storm as the wind caused their balls to roll back past them because the same thing happened to us. I prefer to play challenging courses as it gives me an excuse for my horrible play. The vistas are incredible and I really want to play this course during the Autumn, I can't imagine how gorgeous it will be. The play was a bit slow but nothing that seriously affected momentum. I'm playing this course again this weekend in preparation for a scrambled egg contest or something like that. The course is a bit confusing at times, your round will definitely be improved by playing it with someone who's played it once or twice. Overall the course was well manicured, and I didn't have any complaints about the grass. Don't be discouraged if you don't break 100 the first time you play Devil's Ridge.

A really nice golf course

Great golf course. In really good condition, currently they are replacing the sand in the traps. Once the trap maintenance is complete the course will be as good as they get. Very challenging course with greens that are very tough. The staff is friendly and always seeking to please and improve the course. Nice driving range and practice green. As a member, playing this course has made other courses less intimidating.

First Time Playing

Really a nice experience. Very playable and fair, with challenges along the way. Requires shot-making skills, but can score well if you're not a big hitter. Greens were pretty slick, but rolled true. Northern Michigan feel and beautiful views. A little slow, but played on a busy Sunday morning. One of those courses you almost have to play again as you will most definitely score better the second time, and will get to enjoy the course again.

Beautiful views, difficult greens

Devil's Ridge has a very northern Michigan feel to it with hilly terrain and some beautiful views. Tee boxes could use a little work, as they tend to be kind of sloped and uneven. Greens were in great shape and were quite fast the day we played. Tricky to read as well. The starter and ranger were very friendly. The golf was challenging, but we had an enjoyable day on the course.

A day at Devils Ridge

Although the course was a little damp from a string of rainy days, everyone in our group of 12 thoroughly enjoyed our round at Devils Ridge. It is very scenic, very very hilly and very challenging. The price the Monday that we played was fabulous. Nice clubhouse and friendly staff and I would recommend a visit to anyone.

Very Pleased

This is a great track. The course is very well maintained and such a friendly staff. We tee'd off 10 mins past our time and the guy let the two with us hit an extra breakfast ball. The course has a great layout, but not overly challenging.

Slow Back

Wish Staff would monitor slow groups and recommend Move Forward Policy. Threesome in front of me was playing Black Tee Box and could not hit the ball 150. Erratic shots lead to a ball search on every hole for this group. Never offered to let me play through. Had it not been for that it could have been a great day instead of good.
For those that read this review, please move forward if you are not very good. You will enjoy the game more and so will the rest of us.

Great course at a great value

Purchased a hot deal for the course for $18. When we arrived their was only 2 single players in front of us, resulting in a fast round. Course was in good condition. Weather was the only downside. Cloudy and windy

Tricky course

Be prepared to be tested. There are a few holes that are very difficult due to blind landing areas, so if it's your first time playing , be patient. Course is always in good shape. Greens were smooth for April golf. I just wish someone was at the way half way house to get food since you don't swing back around to the clubhouse until hole 14 I believe.
