The fairways were plush the greens were manicured beautifully the rough was perfect and the scent wraps were raked. The fairways were very forgiving and the undulating Golf Course was very Scenic great pretty. It would seem to me to be obvious that someone is putting some time into this golf course. This is the second time I played and the first time was a year-and-a-half ago. Now that I have seen the golf course on what was a beautiful day, I will be back soon and probably often.
The facilities were adequate although I did not use the snack bar.
Awesome Greens Nice layout
Greens are in great condition. Pace of play was excellent. Great value
Course has greatly improved since I played last a couple years ago. Bravo! Good experience this year enjoyed, plan on regular visits this year.
This course was fairly boring. Almost everything was straight as an arrow. Great course for beginners, as there aren’t very many hazards. The course was very well manicured, and the staff was very friendly.
Solid Muni with great wildlife
This is the latest install in my new adventure in Michigan golf. This course is only a few mile from home so I can play here often. As I arrived on a hot afternoon I found the parking lot empty except for a 2-some packing their bags. I walked into the nice new proshop/restaurant to be told I there was no range, that it would be $20 for the round and that the 1st tee was open.
Overall it was a good course, especially with no one on the course. The front 9 was relatively flat with subtle doglegs and blind corners due to the wetlands or woods. The lack of GPS and having not played here before made some of the lines a bit hard to determine but nothing sneaky or unfair. The course directs you down the fairway and unless you are a long hitter this should make for a fairly simple side. If you hit the ball over 240 the lack of a good map makes it a bit tough as choosing lines is harder and you should be able to work the ball to keep it in the fairway. The back 9 has a lot more slope and elevation changes. The par 3 16th is a good example. Playing 225 from the back, this is a semi-blind tee shot to a slanted green with a drainage channel in front of the green making it all carry. With good conditions and beautiful turkeys and cranes this course is a good place to practice or have a fun round. It is a Muni/Metroparok not a a tour course so don't expect high class amenities and you will love it.
I went straight to the first tee. The tee boxes were flat and well maintained. There was full coverage with flat lies. All the tees were raised and fairly narrow. This left small areas to tee up but this wasn't a problem. There were no hole diagrams, yardage books or GPS so take a second to learn the course.
Fairways were a bit on the long and soft side. There wasn't much rollout and often some dirt or mud on ball. Minimal divot damage but no sand bottles were a bit of a disappointment. Setting many of the wetlands or natural areas as lateral hazards should keep the pace of play up. Better markings would be nice.
The greens were good with moderate ball marks. The greens were on the soft side so shots checked. The greens were on the slow side ( probably in part due to the heat). greens were large and had some interesting contours. Subtle slopes on the front and some big swings on the back keep your attention. The Fringe was narrow and the rough a bit thin and not very long.
Bunkers were well sanded and consistent. Unfortunately they were not well raked by the players. I would like to have seen better maintenance of the bunkers but they were playable and interesting. Some very deep greenside bunkers.
The course Layout is very solid, straight forward and interesting. No gimmicky holes and no water in the line of play. Nice mixture of right and left doglegs. Only thing that might have been nice would be a drivable par 4. The par-3s had a good mixture of lengths but the 225 yard blind 16th might be a bit much for the rest of the layout.
Definitely will be back
This course is not all that challenging , however the fairways and greens are in great shape and it is a fun course to play. There was talk of this shutting down but I hope that does not come about!
Well maintained course
Course is well maintained and plenty of open tee times. Pace of play was good. Greens were in really good shape. Would play the course again.
Enjoyed playing, had to wait a little but had couple behind us join up so play went smoother.
Awesome Greens Nice layout
The greens at Hudson Mills are as good as any upscale public course in South East MI. Layout of course is straight forward and fun to play. Great value and again the GReens are AWESOME
Wide open fairways, (hard to lose ball here) unless you play like me and everything goes right. But with a good recovery shot your back on track. Greens are big and in great shape. I'm a ready golfer so pace of play was great. I would gladly play here again. Excellent staff.
Very nice course
Really enjoy playing here. Course is always in good condition.
Golf Now reservation
What a great way to make a reservation--quick, easy, dependable. The course was very welcoming and accommodating to let us as a twosome go off before a big group. It was hot and they had a cart going around to serve us if needed.
Very well maintained
