This is a great course and greater value. You are definitely rewarded for shot placement and thinking shots through. The greens were perfect and rolled true. It had rained hours before and the course drained well. This course has that up north Michigan feel.

Most of the course had tree lined fairways. This may have been the last weekend with bright colors, which was nice. This is not a course that will ever make a best in Michigan list, but is maintained very well and the greens rolled incredibly true. Note, fairways did not have a single fallen leaf on them.

The falling leaves were not a problem, the course is very well maintained. Some holes were tight but fair and other holes you could spray the ball and get away with it. The greens were really nice for receiving shots and for putting. I would play there again for sure!

Every hole was different. The back 9 had 3 par 5s. Water on some holes, marshes on others. Very scenic. Their restaurant even has daily specials. Not just hot dogs.

our foursome was unsure if we should play or not as it was raining, then showers then drizzle etc.., but we did.<br/> Very nice course with some nice challenging holes & a great layout.<br/> Considering the hours of rain prior to our start the course was in great condition, i really enjoyed this course & the staff were very helpful.<br/> Two pieces of advise, 1) follow the marked lines across the parking lot to get to number 13 as we went all the way to number 18 by mistake. 2) call the pro shop for rates as we only saved $1 using golfnow.com after fees.<br/> If i lived closer to this course it would definitely be on my play again list.

It was a fall day and was cold at night. The course had a frost delay early in the morning resulting in an hour and a half delay. The rest of the day was excellent. With the frost there were cancellations resulting in the course being wide open when I played with no one holding me up. Greens and fairways were in excellent condition. I have always enjoyed the layout of the course with tree lined fairways and many varied challenging holes. Would recommend this course for anyone in the Frankenmuth, Mi area. Great value for the money with friendly staff

This course was worth the 30 minute drive for me. Tee boxes and fairways are in fantastic condition and cut to a good length. My only gripe with this course is some of the greens are pretty scuffed up and it doesnt appear that they roll them. Thankfully, only 2 or 3 greens were bad, the rest were from above average too good.

Course was very nice. Play was slow but mostly due to people playing the back tees when they should be on the front. Still an enjoyable day.

Course plays all you clubs with a great variety holes made challenging with water, swamp land, heather, and sand. Helps to know your distances to hazards. water, traps, etc.

If you play the back tees you have to be a single handicapper, The whites are a challenge for the average good golfer and the golds are better suited for the average duffer like me.

Women tees are great for the serious woman golfer or a better than average striker. Clearing hazards or wet lands is a problem for the short knocker or beginner.

But no matter how well you play the Golf Now price was certainly worth the money.

Lush fairways and superb greens. Nice course mostly built right in the woods. Fine layout that will require various type of shots due to the many different bends. It was a real pleasure to play with a few regular folks from the state.

We played here on 8-12-2013 and we got a great deal for the money that day from GolfNow. I like this course but it looked like they had some kind of outing either this same morning or the day before & the greens were very bad. It looked like someone had even tried to ruin areas around some holes on purpose. There were a lot of ball marks, etc. The greens are usually nicer than that. We like this course but it wasn't up to normal on that day, especially the front nine greens. Normally it is a nice course to play.
