Needs work

I imagine when the course first opened about 20 years ago, this was a very nice course. Needs work, but overall was fun until the storm hit. the oddest thing I remember was a cart path(newly paved) stretching directly across ( I think) the second fairway in which my son hit the edge of the asphalt on his low second shot and the ball richocheted to the left. Never saw a cart path across a fairway!

Nice Downriver course!!

First time golfing this course. Found it on golfnow and added bonus was a good price as a hot deal. Tee time a little before 9 am on a weekday. Staff at the counter was friendly and the course was set up to comply with these new covid rules for golf courses. They had plastic barriers to divide the cart. But since it was me and my wife the barrier was not a specific requirement,but would work if I had been golfing with a buddy. Surprisingly we were able to start about 20 min early. I expected more play with an early tee time. We played in 18 in about 3 hours and 20 min. The course was fairly wide open overall. But I must say the best thing were the greens. Kudos to the maintenance guys that take care of this. They were true and rolled nice...quick but not unfair.!! This course is built in the shadows of a landfill which might be a negative to some. There was no noticeable odor at this time anyway...but might be IF the wind blew in the wrong direction from time to time. Seems this course has 3 9 hole courses...Red/Gold/Blue....We played the Red/gold on this day. Would play again for sure

first time

we played all 27 holes … the first 18 are tree lined … the last 9 are more wide open but you need to know the course or you get yourself in trouble with blind shots or water.... due to the rain in area the last 9 had some burn out in some fairways …. over all not bad for the monet though

Holy pot holes!

I thought Michigan roads were bad! Wait till you try to go down their cart paths. I think mound road looks great compared to those. Wow!

Dead grass

I lost 3-4 balls in the dead grass just off the fairway. Something should be done about the amount of dead grass left from the mowers .

Where to start?

So many disappointing thing to say, We played the "Gold to Red" tract. I will admit they had rain the day before but that does not excuse the course neglect. They had us play cart path only which was fine , kinda. The "gold" nine was horrific, they were fairly diligent on reminding golfers to stay on the cart paths, only problem was the cart paths were almost undrivable holes filled with water and so deep that they had posted a hand written sign at one of the creators that warned of its depth and severity. This could go on for a while so I will try to just give abbreviated details, Needed a visit to chiropractor after, rough was 8 to 10 inches in most areas, staff was to say the least unconcerned , mud,water, ruts and what rough was cut was left and ready to be bailed for hay and just plane terrible conditions they need to close for a week or so and at least make it safe to drive a golf cart. Not sure if it changed management or just attitudes. Worst round of golf conditions I have ever had to deal with.
