Will not go back

Missed scheduled T time because carts were not available.
T times stacked too close together caused slow play.
Greens in poor condition.
Took 5 and 1/2 hours to play 18 holes. Marshals not controlling flow.

Course conditions were not great. Found ourselves hitting off dirt several times in fairways and greens were patchy and uneven in several spots.

Good course with some variation and fast greens

This was overall a fun course. Almost every hole layout was different which was great, besides the greens. Seemed like every one had a back to front slope and they were fast. Some tee boxes and greens were chewed up but that's expected for a course with such a great deal on the price.

Short Course tough greens

Very short course, surrounded in trees, with some challenging greens. Realized quickly this is a good course to find golf balls as we waited for the guys in front of us to come out of the woods with golf balls on almost every shot. Good course to take a girlfriend/wife out on to play. Course is a bit drab in landscaping, but greens and fairways roll nice.

Very Poor Experience

As soon as you get in your cart, you know it’s going to be a long day. Wait on the first tee until nearly 20 minutes after booked tee time (which NO course should have 8 minute tee intervals, ESPECIALLY DURING COVID). The course was not in good condition, some greens were in awful shape. It did not look like any part of the course had been watered within the past month. Ground on the tee boxes were so hard, it was a struggle to get the tee into the ground. EXTREMELY slow pace of play. We only played 17 holes and it was STILL nearly 4.5 hours. All of this for $49, which is somehow more than most courses in Metro-Detroit. It shouldn’t be more than $20 to golf at Hilltop, period.

Good honest golf course

Nothing ‘tricked up’ here, and I love it that way. Small greens will test your short game - especially if you either short-side or high-side yourself.

Flag sticks

Overall great round. I was the first off the tee and the only complaint i have is that several (about 7 or so) of the flag sticks not been replaced after the greens had been cut causing my approach shots to be blind.

Well Maintained and straight

Quite a turn around since the last time I played here.
The course was nice and watered to play on.
Greens were nice as well other than one or two that were burned out.

Good value... Would prefer better watered tees

Best value for 18.
Greens were lightning fast and hence tees were rock hard as well.

Would definitely play again when better weather permits.

Keep it straight.

Great course for the area and good value. A few greens were burned up but overall great condition for this time of the year. The gentlemen at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. Great experience and i will return to play another round and hopefully lower my score.
