Crown Golf Club

Beautiful course in Northern Michigan, with rolling hills and elevated t boxes. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our lunch after our round was delicious. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for great golfing experience and all around fun day.

Great course near town

The Crown offers a wide variety of holes and some fantastic elevation changes. The greens are a pleasure to putt on and the course offers a good amount of challenge for experienced players. The back 9 is a lot of fun (it brings you to the top of some hills and has a lot of up and down). The views are spectacular as well. Add this track to your next Traverse City golf trip- it's a gem that sometimes gets overlooked!

Worthwhile corse

The greens and fairways are very nice, the rough needs to to fertilized and watered as it was brown and hard. Most of the holes the fairways are wide and leave you in great shape for the next shot. Plenty of chalange even for the big bombers, I'll be back.

Good value and great burgers

The course was much nicer than we expected based on the price. The fairways were in good condition. They had 150 stakes and other yardage markers which were helpful. We were playing from the whites and reds and could have used some help finding them sometimes.

We ate at the restaurant after we played and the burgers were awesome.

Back nine is tough!

What a pleasant surprise! This is a great place to play golf. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The course was really nice, with the back being decidedly tougher than the front. I've already recommended it to my friends.

Memorial day round

Took my Dad out for a round on Memorial day. The course was in great shape. The weather was perfect. And pace of play was good. Grabbed a bite to eat at the turn. Everything was awesome.

Perfect course for my wife and I.

We like to play a scramble when we play because my wife really likes to only play nine holes and I always want to play eighteen but if we scramble she will play eighteen. Very nice and well maintained course. We played from the white and red tee boxes. The front nine is a little easier than the back nine. Also, the greens on the back nine are much more difficult with lots of undulations, slope, etc. We three putted three of the back nine holes after getting on the green in regulation. Oh well, that's golf. The staff are very accommodating and wanting to make sure you have a good experience. Will play this course again the next time we are in the area.

Really? No drinking water on the course?

The day was perfect, the reviews had been quite positive, the ranger who accompanied us to the driving range led us to belief we were in for a wonderful afternoon. As it turned out the day was underwhelming. First, the course is beautiful (it is Traverse City after all). Great views, groomed fairways, fast greens...what else could you ask for? Well, a ranger who actually showed up on the course would have been nice. Water on the course on a hot day would have been nice. That's right...a hot day...zero water to drink. When we asked at the turn whether we had missed the coolers the response was essentially...no water...deal with it. Pace of play was 4 hours, 35 minutes. Not terrible, except it broke down as 2/55 on the front, 1/40 on the back. Surprise!! There was an "outing" in front of us on the front. And, there was no ranger to calm the 2-3 foursomes that were waiting on every tee for the first 9 holes. For my wife and I, celebrating her birthday, for us, this course is a one and done.

Hidden gem in TC area

If you're looking to get in a great round in the TC area and not pay the resort prices but get a VERY similar on course experience, I'd play here. Not much for the club house but the course conditions and layout is fun, fair but tough in spots. Slower greens than some of the resorts so keep that in mind when putting...
Definitely coming back to play next time I'm in the TC area.

A Crowning Achievement

I played golf at the Crown Golf Club. The last time I played there was in the late 1970s when the course was a 9 hole course and only had their tees and greens irrigated. They have 18 holes now. The back nine has an up north feel with mature trees and rolling hills white elevation changes. They have four sets of tees making the course playable for newer and experienced golfers. The staff I encountered were friendly and seemed like my experience at their club was important to them. I will play again.

The Crown

I enjoyed playing this course. The course was interesting and challenging with lots of changes in elevation. There was an abundance of bunkers both in the fairway and around the greens. The holes for the most part were straight forward so you knew how each could be played. Only hole 14 required a forward view to determine where to hit your tee shot. Overall I felt the the Crown was a great value for the price.
