Beautiful course with great views and a fun layout. Unfortunately the staff was fairly rude the day I went, and the course could be in better shape. With all the beautiful courses in the area, it's hard to feel like Torch is worth your time and money.
Average course with 1 view
Overall the course was alright, being so close to Torch Lake and having the name Torch for the course you would think there’d be more views from the course. Only 1 hole has a view of the lake and the others are tucked away in the woods like any other Up North course. For $70 green fees I would expect a bit more from a course, the conditions were fine, but when a course doesn’t have a cart path, that’s a bad sign. If this course was in South East Michigan it would be $35-$40 compared to $70. The carts could use an update too, for being a “resort” course and all.
First time - was pretty good
We like the people, the course was nice, enjoyed playing it. Greens were tough. Wished there was more water views but the course played well
Northern Michigan Must See
Awesome experience. Course is beautiful and in great condition. Great staff and a very welcoming place. If in Northern Michigan, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
This course had amazing views of torch lake. Hole 7 tee box will certainly leave you in amazement of the beauty of the lake.....now time to talk about golf. The course plays hard and fast, greens are fast but not hard to read. The fairways and greens were in decent shape, looked like they had a golf outing Saturday/ Sunday and we golfed on a Monday so it looked a little worn. The rough is pretty hard ground but it’s not impossible to play. We overall had a great experience playing at this course, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course to just about anyone.
As scenic as it gets
We had never played this course and actually had never played golf in Michigan but we completely lucked into this gem. We were reading golfnow reviews and thought this place sounded like a good value but we were blownaway. Even without the views the course itself was beautiful. It was in great shape and nearly every hole was isolated in the woods, but several holes also included breathtaking lake views. The restaurant at the turn and after 18 overlooked the most scenic par three, which also had a lake view, and it was overall a really memorable round of golf. The staff was helpful and great. If you’re thinking about playing here, do it. And supposedly there are multiple courses and housing, so it would seem perfect for a golf trip. I’ll definitely be back.
Beautiful & Challenging
Wow! Sundance. What a nice track. The greens are very fast but true. Alot of holes play short, but the par 5 9th is a Beast! Beautiful course, Great views,
Good track, nice, helpful staff. Good course to play on fly-out day- close to TC Airport.
Good Track, Great People
Kinda slow on the day we played, but it was Saturday. Not alot of amenities but staff was really great and accommodating. Would recommend.

Dumpy trailer to check in as usual. Build a clubhouse or go back to the original Torch course clubhouse guys! For a course of Sundance's pedigree it's a travesty. Great interesting golf course. Recommend and play it in early June of each year. Very wet but when dry it's always an enjoyable day. Savor the view of Torch Lake from the 17th tee. Cheers!
Always fun to play the Original course
You still have to check in at the dumpy trailer shared with the Sundance course. Build a clubhouse guys or move back to the original Torch clubhouse. Torch course in nice shape greens are of good speed and it's a pretty old school routing. The 10th hole is quirky. Always a strong challenge Torch holds your interest. Very very wet from recent rains. You have to play this course a few times so you know where your ball will bounce. Overall 3.75 stars. Recommended and play 36 by going over to Sundance in the afternoon.
Playing Sundance was a GREAT experience! The staff is phenomenal as well. From the gentleman who took our clubs to the cart, the proshop guys, and the ranger who got us off as a twosome half an hour early, this place is great. I loved the course design and conditions. The entire course was manicured so well and that is amazing given how much play this place gets. A great view of Torch Lake on a couple holes too. Highly recommended!
Awesome course. Can't say enough about how fun it was to play. Great condition, pace of play was fantastic and staff was very helpful.
new and excellent condition
stuck us behind a women's tournament. their pace was 5 hours. should have allowed 40 minutes for next tee time to avoid slow play. Thank God they decided to play scramble, otherwise 5 1/2 hour round.
Course conditions were near perfect in all respects. Fairways lush, greens fast and true. Elevation changes added to the interest. Challenging but very playable. You are missing out on a great golfing experience if you pass on this one!
