Very Good Golf

This course was very nice and moderately challenging... Greens in good shape for early spring... First time at this course and it was over all a good experience. I'll play it again.

Slow But Nice

My twosome played a 5:45 round. No ranger to speak of. We saw at least 3 fivesomes on the course during peak hours. Unacceptable. Not sure if they turn their heads for members or what but this will keep me from going back. The course itself was nice. Good grreens and fairways. Some really nice holes in a vacuum, but as a whole far to compact for my tastes. I guess that's just the old school style but probably doesn't help the pace of play when always waiting for other groups to play out of your fairway.

Nice to play here again.

Old golf course feel, layout is also old golf course.
Still fun to play after all the years have gone by.
I will continue to try and play here every year, as long as Golf Now offers good deals that is.

New to course.

My brother and I played course for first time and based on reviews, expected a good experience.
We were not disappointed. We were allowed to tee off a little before our scheduled time.
We found the course to be in great condition and very scenic. Design took good advantage of topography including water.
Fairways were in great shape as were the sand traps.
The greens were a bit tricky but rolled consistently.
Pace of play was fine with a little waiting for twosome ahead of us but we finished in about 4 hours.
We will be back often.

Great Hosts!

I had my bachelor party in Saugatuck and with the place we were staying at just down the street, Clearbrook was a no brainer. Without a doubt, the staff went out of their way to ensure the entire group was comfortable and ensured we were having a great time. Giving proximity markers and sending a ranger around to check-in to ensure the pace of play was good.

Loved every minute of it and they were super helpful/easy to work with.

Course itself wasn't too difficult - but it's a good value for what you're playing.

Nice park land style golf course

Very nice old school gold course. Tight fairways with postage stamp greens. Course is very well kept. Sand traps are raked and greens were receptive and rolled well. Hats off to the greenskeeper and his staff. This course is tight and do not expect to score well if you are not accurate with both tee and approach shots. The grass is very lush around the greens.

Tee boxes are well kept and the ladies tees are fair as well.

The staff couldn't have been nicer, bring your best game and you will have a great time.

Clearbrook Golf Experience

Clearbrook Golf Course is a good value when you can get the "Hot Deal" rate. Everything is mowed well & the greens are in decent condition. Fairways are mowed weeds not grass. The restaurant is 5-star at reasonable prices.
