Enjoy the Fall Golf and Colors

What a great play to golf. Well worth the stop if you're going north or driving there for the day. The people here are fantastic and one of the best in customer care in the Saginaw Bay area. Course is well maintained, not an easy course at all but not that hard that you don't ever want to come back, great mix of tough and not so tough holes.

course review

I have played this course several time over the past two years this year has been the best condition that the course has been in for sometime, the year before the tee boxes were a disgrace but a lot has went into the course since then with proper management this could become a standout course. More golfers have to lear to repair their divots. This course is a great bang for the buck.

A come back course

The reason I say a come back course is the previous management was not putting anything back into the case and was still trying to charge a top dollarr. The present management is really improving the course the greens are quick and true and well maintained. You can see a lot of improvement in the course. The course is getting a lot of play because of the pricing of 25.00 for 18 and a cart, it the course is returning to the course of years ago. Great job guys.

Hot as heck

Greens were in decent shape considering the lack of rain. Pace of play was very good. Only saw cart girl once... could have really used something to drink (very hot).

BV Needs Care

Course is a great layout. But probably due to lack of profits the course has suffered and is in need of maintenance. Tee boxes are rough to say the least. Greens in pretty good shape. Fairway is OK. Cart paths are real bumpy. I'm willing to return for more rounds but not willing to pay more for it.

Go to neighborhood course.

We don’t live far from the course so we play it often. The GolfNow discount makes it even more appealing. There a a few tough holes for seniors but overall a pleasant experience.

This is my hometown favorite! We have played here multiple times this year due to awesome deals they have going all the time with Golf Now App and other coupons. We have not been disappointed! Greens are good and overall course is very nice.

Getting Better

The course was going down hill but, the new owner is starting to get things done to improve the conditions. It's not going to happen over night but, you can see the work that is getting done. This is a real good golf course and can be very challenging. We just have to be patient as they work on the course but, go play it and have fun. Also, the Golf Pro at the course is a great guy to talk to.

Challenging and Beautiful

Bay Valley was a tough but beautiful course for us. Perfect weather with nary a breeze. Lots of water but always an option to bypass it. When you got in trouble you got in BIG trouble. Every hole felt very private from other golfers. Some of the biggest greens my husband has ever seen. We enjoyed our round immensely. Kayla the cart gal was friendly and helpful. We will be back. Excellent value for your money !
