Marshall, Starter !

Love the course but confused on when to tee off. Had a tee time but nobody to start so just went off anyway. Caught a single and paired up but soon caught a foursome who drove their carts anywhere the pleased. Up to tee boxes ,in Native grass, inside the ropes, even on slope in front of a par 3 that tore up the face of the bank. This course is a quality track but needs more active course management. Did see the marshall on 16 3 hours into the round and all he did was drive by.

The foursome did let us play through at the turn mainly because they stocking up at the turn house.

Extremely scenic w/many forced carries & elevation changes, this very challenging course will test all aspects of your game. Beginners should look elsewhere. As a 1st time player, this low-hdcp traveler was very disappointed to learn upon arrival that they had just aerated & top sanded all the greens AND they did not offer any reduced rate as an apologetic gesture. I would have expected a proactive phone call informing me of such since I provided my phone # when I made the ttime 4+ weeks early. Nevertheless this layout - when in proper condition - is worth the trip to northern Detroit and worthy of 5 stars. BTW, in 30+ yrs of playing, I have never seen a paver stone cart path on a public course!

Stay Away Unless You Want to Get Punished!

This is the second time playing this course and I would not recommend this course. I am a 12 handicapper so not great, but not bad either. This course is so penal when you hit a slightly errant shot and very unforgiving, for a public course, it's no fun with blind hazards and tricked up fairways. After 9 holes you are in the boonies and not back at the clubhouse. Only redeeming feature is that it's picturesque. Never going back though.

Great Course BUT......

I find this to be one the most challenging golf courses in the are. Tee boxes fairways rough all was in excellent shape. The Greens however were not up to par. I found that most holes they were beat up especially around the holes therefore they did not roll true. This course you have to have played it once or twice to understand the spots you can place the ball and the spots you can miss otherwise I would advised to bring extra balls with you! For you will need them!!

Zero practice facilities

The one and only high end public course I have ever been to with non-existence facilities relative to golf.

It borders on ludicrous. The course itself is of championship caliber but there is no range, no chipping green and no bunkers on which to practice. The practice green is the size of a family room.

Horrible course conditions

Course was absolutely soaking wet and not maintained at all. Bunkers were full of water, maintenance personnel were just standing around. Stood in the club house waiting for someone to check me in for 15 mins before I just walked out and went to the first tee. Waste of $45

scarier than it looks

very, very difficult course, even from the forward tees. It certainly is a course you need to play more than once to get a feel for it. The greens were fast and undulating, however, it was about 97 degrees that day and we are seniors. That being said, I'm not certain I would recommend due to the fact there is absolutely no drinking water on the course - NONE - but of course you can buy a bottle of water for about 5 times what it would normally cost. We have played in this heat before and the courses we played always made sure we were hydrated...they even came out to the patrons with frozen bottles of water. The first and only comfort station is after hole 9, so you could be dead by then. Obviously they are only concerned with making $$$$ and won't even fill your bottles of water at the comfort station....I had to go into the ladies bathroom and use the faucet. Very disappointing.....for being so uppity and unwelcoming and pricy to boot. I can spend my money in lot better ways at courses that make me want to come back. Not so sure about this one......

Fantastic challenging course

What a great course! Greens were very fast and true. Fairways well manicured. Several holes were tricky and without course knowledge I hit into places I should not have. Just things I'll have to know next time I play here.

The clubhouse and grille are also tremendous. The only problems with this course were no driving range and a very small, hard to find, putting green. I overlook those thing because of how great the course itself was.

Way to many tee times booked period. We teed off at 940am and at 230 pm we were on the 14 tee box.. 5 hours to play 13 holes.. we left after 13 holes and one of us called the pro shop to complain and make them aware of what we just experienced. Pro on duty sunday Aug 27th at 230 pm. He heard are frustration and his comment was ... after a giggle, was its a beautiful day, enjoy it, why in such a hurry? REALLY.. STAY AWAY UNLESS THIS IS THE ONLY COURSE AVAILABLE..
