A must play

The course was in perfect shape. Love the large fast greens. Not much water but tons of large bunkers that were raked and emulate conditions..
Cart paths are wide and smoother than any road in Michigan . The entire staff was friendlyand on top of everything. Seemed a bit pricey but hard to complain when the course was so nice.

Still Dreaming

The counterpart to the Nightmare, the Dream compares in overall quality and aesthetics that will keep you coming back up to West Branch for more golf.

Group of 20 guys for our scramble finale on the Dream and the course did not disappoint. Depending on how you play, the course is definitely "gettable." We had one team post a -18* and another with -13, so the getting was good.

Highly suggest getting up to West Branch and hitting up both the Dream and the Nightmare.

*denotes that the team was light on their birdie jumps

Nice round at The Dream

First time visiting the Dream and very happy with the experience. While not a top notch elite course in Michigan, I'd call it a solid 4-star track, not to mention solid and friendly service! The spread is a bit reminiscent of Pilgrims Run north of Grand Rapids, but maybe a half-star behind in my rating.

The course is cut through the woods which rarely allows you to see anything but the hole you're on. It is well kept, not tour caliber, but good enough for any non-pro. Just enough dog-legs and green undulation to keep things fun and challenging.

I'd definitely return if in the area again....

One awesome golf course!

The Dream is one of the best golf courses in Michigan.From the time you drive up the entrance you get that feeling this is going to be a special place.The man behind the counter makes you feel good about the place before you even start.The course has wide fairways and big greens.You get good roll off the tee and the greens hold.The rough is thick but you don't lose your ball and spend all day looking for it.We all enjoyed a great round of golf.You hardly ever see anyone else on the course when they are playing other holes.

The green run true.

We were a foursome of women. The women tees are a great length for a challenging round but will not beat you up. The course was in great condition.

beautiful course carved through the hilly woods

One of Michigans premier courses, with virtually every hole built around a grade. Greens were in the process of being brought back from a rough spring otherwise the course was pristine.

well maintained

Excellent course!!! Worth every cent and the course was immaculately groomed. The only downfall was some dead spots in a few greens but im sure that issue is already being addressed.
