Good Day

Myself & 3 friends played. It started out with light rain to clear to a overcast day. The round was great, we played a scrambled. The Course was in Great shape
Compared to other courses I've been to recently. A special thing that happened was my Nephew drove a par 4 and put it a foot away for Eagle!! The young lady that greeted us was so pleasant. When we made the turn she already had Hot dogs on the grill unlike other courses where we had to wait 10 minutes. Overall A+ rating!! Will make the drive again.

Unknown Gem

Had seen this course advertised at very decent rates, played it, and can't wait to play it again. Now we know after keeping notes where you need to be off the tee. The staff was great, very friendly. Did not eat there this time, next time we will. Driving range is tiny, designed for hitting some short irons to limber up. We had a great time.

A pleasant surprise

This was my first round at this course. Narrow winding fairways. The greens were fantastic. I was extremely surprised with the condition of the course, for the value. I will definitely be back.

Decent course for the money

Its early in the season so I don't expect too much, but there were quite a few flaws in the course. The main complaint I have is the golf cart they gave me... I couldn't have imagined a worse cart than that. It had so much torque that it scared me when I pushed on the pedal. To give a frame of reference, I'm 20 years old. Terrible cart. Decent course though

Great Value

This course seems to be a bit of a hidden gem.
It's off the beaten path enough to make it seem like you're up in northern-lower Michigan. Nice views.
Greens have some undulation and seemed to run true, flat, and fairly quick.
Our mixed group all enjoyed it as first timers!
Fairways were the only draw-back as they weren't very well maintained.
Still for $18 for 18 with cart, what a great value!

Glad We Decided To Play Here

For the average golfer, this course is fairly challenging. Nearly every hole is lined with trees on both sides along with water and trap hazards on about 2/3 of them. Course is in better condition than many that cost much more ($18 for 18 Holes w/cart on golfnow) making it a great value. Overall, the course is a little short (5621 playing whites, 6091 for blues) but plenty challenging. Though a little off the beaten path, this family owned and operated course was worth the drive.

a pleasant surprise

I enjoyed playing Willow Springs, the course was in good condition, the greens were good and the layout was fun to play. It is a course you need to play once before trying to score as there are some tricky doglegs and a stream that runs through the back nine. The pro shop was stocked pretty well and the staff were great.
