The fairways are like carpets and consistent from hole to hole. The greens are fast but hold the ball.

Great course, tough greens, friendly starter. But, everyone mentioned being busy, and how difficult it was, but no ranger to speed up play, so a 5 1/2 hour round. Also, spend a couple of bucks and put some yardage on the sprinkler heads, a 4 inch disc every 50 yards barely visible in the fairway is not "well marked"

I have played here for years when I visit Harbor Springs. Still enjoy the layout. Greens are a challenge because the break of the green is based upon the mountain, not the lay of the green.

About LT Bay, Golf Digest said "Probably not a more beautiful golf course in the world...". Sounds like hyperbole, but it's true. (yes, really)

If you're in the area and like to golf, you simply MUST play here.

Fun, playable course for men and women. The senior tees are really senior length. A lot of courses put the senior tees on the same tee box as the forward tees. Putting is very tricky. Starter said everything breaks towards the lake but, of course, we didn't know where the lake was from every hole! We were a twosome so it was a little slow behind the foursomes but not bad. Pitching from the rough is a challenge. Hit it! Golf Now rate was good and a good time for us. Pro shop well stocked. Greens are nicely accessible. The view from the first tee and restaurant overlooking the lake is very nice. Convenient to Petoskey and Harbor Springs. Play it. You won't be disappointed.
