Not kept well
Fairways weren’t recently cut making it a nightmare to find your ball with the combo of long grass and leaves everywhere. Staff was friendly at desk but the grounds made it super frustrating to play as one green was partially covered in water. Great value but I guess you get what you pay for.
A good layout poorly maintained = Bad Value
The layout of this course is very challenging. Rolling hills, elevation changes, blind shots, dog legs, water and more. I payed $40 for 18 with a cart and having folded in many other cities across the Midwest and being very familiar with golf in southwest Michigan, this is not a good value due to the course conditions. The fairways were patchy and long, the greens rolled inconsistently from hole to hole, and the course doesn’t handle water well. For example, number 9 green is elevated on a hill, but does not drain and there were puddles of standing water. Fair price would be around $25.
It isn't Whistling Straits, but it is very affordable and the people working were very, very nice.
Course in good shape for all the rain
Area has received above normal rainfall this year. Hole 5, a par 3, over a pond was flooded all the way to the green. Though not closed, we chose not to play it because we did not want to get wet or damage the course by trying to play it. Rest of course was in good shape. Several of the difficult par 5’s they have shortened, cleared trees on 18th hole to open it up. All were good changes for the average golfer.
Very wet from recent rains
Nice little course despite areas where rain water had accumulated. Some of the greens were in rough shape. Pace of play was great because course was not crowded.
Pleasantly surprised at this little hidden gem.
Got a great bargain on Golf Now and took my bride (who is pretty much a novice). We had a great time. Surprisingly nice layout. Not a long course but water and trees make it very challenging for the better than average player and easy enough for the novice from the forward tees.. Played on a Wednesday and the course was pretty wide open. Highly recommend for the Michigan tourist looking for a hidden gem.
a 50-60's feel to the course not long but a fun course many different looking holes(blind shots and such)
Memorial Weekend Golf
Staff was friendly and engaging. Course was in pretty good shape with the exception of some standing water on some holes due to recent rain fall. Ninth hole green is in poor shape on the front and should be roped off with the pin set to the right or in the back. Pace of play was good and the greens putted true but a little slow. Overall excellent rating. If you are looking for a lower cost option Lake Cora Hills is a fun and well kept challenging course.
The clubhouse looks like a 50s ranch home left unloved. That immediately deflated our expectations. We were greeted warmly though so for a few minutes we had hope. Also I had read positive reviews so we headed to hole one with an open mind. This course is strange. The first five holes have horrid fairways. I'm not sure what kind of grass it is but it's definitely not bent or Bermuda. It's more of the "I'm glad that's not my lawn" type. At hole six fairway conditions suddenly improve. There's no first cut of rough anywhere though. Hole 9 is one of three par threes on the front. Hole one and five are also par threes. Number nine is unusual. The green is unfairly guarded by two huge trees. It's odd, to say the least. The greens were average. Play was extremely slow and we quit after hole 13. I like to be fair when reviewing and always try to say something nice. With that in mind, I did notice the one ball washer I used was nice, the water wasn't smelly and the brushes were fresh. I won't go back because I can wash my balls almost everywhere.
This course is on the shorter side. You will have short irons into every green. You have a lot of blind shots into the greens too. Some of them have break you just don't see sometimes and boy you're in trouble if they're running fast. You will have plenty of birdie attempts and if you're a good putter you can score here. I love this place, the price is right and the staff is very friendly.
1st year golfer
I love it here. This is my 1st year golfing and I've golfed here 3 times this year.
This course is short
Course was somewhat hilly but played very well. The greens are undulating and smaller than most courses I have played. Some of the greens need work to repair winter damage. Front nine is short and plays easier than back nine. Water comes into play more on the back nine. A few of the fairways are narrow calling for accurate shot placement. Make sure to pay attention to the course layout on the scorecard. Be careful not to overshoot some of the greens to avoid hazards.
Very hilly corse
The fairways are ruff on some holes. It's has some very challenging holes.
Beautiful November day
Late season golf. Par 3 holes were tough pars. Par 5 holes were very interesting especially on the back nine.
A quick nine
Fair to midland course. Short in length. Fairways not distinguished from rough. Up and down. Fair golf course for beginners....not so tough for the low handicapper. It's all about raised tees and greens that make this course more difficult to score on. The greens are small and flat, but slanted. No. 9 is a par three with a tree covering the front of the green, and your approach shot? Very little sand.
