Lacking Fun and Friendliness
I decided to play this course because I got a discount. I'm not even sure it was worth the price I paid. The layout is somewhat pedestrian and predictable. The staff was not friendly at all and it seemed like they completely stopped putting money back into the course in the past couple of years. There are one or two good holes, but they're snubbed by everything else. I'd suggest taking your money elsewhere if you're playing in Manistee County.
Best value at twilight rate, otherwise a little over priced. Difficulty of course depends on what tee you play. The back tees can give you some longer carries. I like most of the course, however I despise hole 15, a little par 3, that plays severely downhill (so downhill the shot can be blind) to a small double tiered green where you either hit a fabulous shot for a birdie putt, or you are scrambling trying to save par. There is no in between. This course has very good greens, I just do not like the layout of holes 15 and 18.
A nice spot!
I played here in a twosome and walked away very impressed for the cost. The course is pretty easy which results in a relaxing and fund round. Minimal crowds. Cheap beers (with a couple IPA variety) in the clubhouse and hut at the turn. Just an overall fun golf experience. If I lived nearby I'd be out here with my friends often!
