Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
This is a beautiful course and has some great holes. Carts are clean as is lunch room. People are friendly and they schedule so you are not waiting for anyone or being pushed. Try it out
Linksy in Michigan
THis is a favorite - I visit the area once a year for a week and ALWAYS play here. Great golf, very reasonable and not crowded.
Nice open course with rolling hills. Some water hazards and numerous sand traps. Some tree lined holes and elevated tees on the back nine were spectacular. Course is long. Would recommend playing this course.
Play the T-s of your skill level
Pace of play was excruciating. Old men egos need to be checked on the practice green. (Some of these guys were only in their 50s). One or 2 fellows in the 2 4-somes ahead of us played well enough to hit off the white Ts but not the blues. They must have thought they were playing for some high stakes Fed-X cup believing they were low handicappers playing the whites. .
When the course decides to plug the playing cycle to more people on the course it ruins the round for all. I WISH ALL COURSES WOULD LISTEN TO THIS AND RESPECT THEIR CUSTOMERS TIME. Golfers need to be considerate those behind them- no problem looking for a ball but don’t take 5 minutes when the ball is lost in 2’ weeds for Pete-sakes. .
Greens were in fairly good shape with some rough areas (bare/ disease). They heavily watered some fairways to the point of swamping low areas. I imagine they are trying to stay ahead of late summer burnout.
I still enjoy most of the course but will seriously doubt if I’ll continue playing here if they continue to plug the course with golfers.
It was a good day
The course was in rough shape no way around it. Don't know if I will be back because of the distance I live and I feel like I get a better stick9ng close to home at MN.
Always a Good Time
We hit some good ones, and we hit some bad ones. Love bringing my 11yr old son, for father/son time. Excellent place for kids. Great conditions, and challenging greens. Love the Elevation changes on the course. We'll be back.
This is great course and is relatively unknown. It is one of my favorites.
Strong layout, rough shape
Very nice layout with some tough holes. Tees, fairways and greens all in tough shape right now.
Fun course to play
Challenging, but fair course.. Lots of fun to play. I will be back soon. Thank you!
Played in 2017 but not last year. Course was in better condition in 2017. Could be from the weather this spring and summer.
Great course for price
Always a fun course to play, get it on a hot deal time, you won't be disappointed in the price.
Up North Gem
Love this course. So beautiful and in great condition. Golf all over Northern Michigan but keep coming back to this course. Never have a problem getting a tee time and staff is terrific.
Challenging layout, great condition. I come up from deep south - think Bermuda - bent grass is a treat. Vale does it well.
Great golf course and a terrific layout. Very good variety of holes. The holes have lots of sand traps however the front is open for a bump and run shot. The greens are huge, and my iron play resulted in very long putts!! Also, be ready for lots of elevated greens. If you’re headed up north for a golf outing this is worth the detour for a round. My only criticisms would be the greens were a little slow and the course was very soggy in some spots, sprinkler malfunctions or massive rain.
Another Excellent Round at Emerald Vale
Cool, crisp morning round; course was a little soggy in places. This is an excellent course; great value. Staff always friendly. Front nine was fine; however, got behind a group of 3 foursomes; on the back nine; and played too slow!
Trip to northern michigan
Great value and nice course. Pace of play during the second nine was slow. I would play again.
A great start to Sunday
First round of the year. Couldn't have picked a better place to start. The weather was beautiful. The staff was friendly. And the course was in great shape. Will definitely recommend to everyone, PLAY EMERALD VALE.
This course gives you a little of everything. The greens were soft (Spring) and a little slow again Spring.
