Enjoyed the course. It is a fair mix of challenging and fun holes. The course was well maintained. I enjoy the great range and very large putting area readily available before the round and after.
College students run the check-in and snack shop. Some are very good and they all seem to try very hard. The outdoor snack facility is conveniently located to the ninth and tenth holes.
Great Fun...Can BOMB it!
I was visiting Michigan and had played the West course two days ago, so wanted to play the easier East course.... And I'm glad that I did. Much much more forgiving and definitely more fun. Not quite in as good a shape as the West course where the MSU college players play (Dottie Pepper being one!), but still just fine. I played Summer golf and didn't get a bad lie for the two days I played the East course. Super nice Ranger and pro shop staff and right next to a wonderful huge driving range. I came from New York with my son to visit my sister who's a professor at MSU and we may just have to make this an annual trip knowing there's such a great facility here to play!!
Great value. Paid 27$ for 18 holes. Nice course. Friendly staff. Course was in great condition. Will play again
Quick pace. Course in pretty good shape. Goose poop on some greens and should be removed by staff. Kind of gross. Mix up with Golfnow app price and what they tried to make me pay when I got there. Handled well by staff though.
Visiting from Texas
This was an absolute treat to play. Greens were in great condition. I love Michigan golf courses.
Despite the rainiest spring in forever, Akers east was in great condition, greens were fast and true, the fairways were surprisingly firm in 80-90% of the space (just couldn’t be completely dry given recent monsoon) and the starter routed us around a women’s league expertly so that we played 18 without any wait
Bad condition The course was in terrible condition flooded water smells ,mosquitoes not really happy with Forest Akers right now

Akers never disappoints
Solid course for all levels of players. Course was in great shape and speed of play was good especially considering how busy it was. Finished in just under 4 hrs.
Good Time at Forest Akers East
Greens great, fairways low and even with cloudy/light showers the course was great. Bummed the shop didn't have hot dogs available at the turn though.
Nice course to play
I had a 1:15 tee time on a beautiful Saturday, so I can’t really complain about it being slow. The course layout is nice and it was in pretty good condition. I’ll definitely be going back to play again.
Good course, but some faults
Multiple tee boxes makes it fun for every length player. Usually in good shape, but with the rain there was flooding in spots. Price for range is high, and they keep a mix of range balls that doesn’t help consistent feel. Some are very old, and come off the face very poorly. Also think their short game range should be open to the public. It isn’t very well maintained, they don’t offer shag bags of more premium balls like others I’ve been to, yet they want $250 per season
We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass on your feedback in regard to the range to the teams in charge so they can work to make changes. Thanks for visiting The East at Forest Akers Golf Course. We hope to see you again in the future.
Bang for your buck
Hard to beat the price for the quality and conditions. Fairly open, but, still rewards accuracy. Greens were immaculate, except for all of the unrepaired ball marks.
Hi Rick! Thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your positive review is important to us. We will make note and we hope to see you back!
An absolutely awesome course! Takes a hole or two to get used to the high quality of the fairways/greens, but that was part of the fun of it. Great layout and scenery. Highly recommend, especially on GolfNow!
