What a hidden gem! This is one of the most challenging courses I’ve played in a while. Lots of elevated tee shots and elevated greens, lots of rolling Hills. Overall a wonderful experience!
WONDERFUL STAFF AND COURSE
THE YOUNG MAN AT THE COUNTER WAS A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH AND THE COURSE WAS GORGEOUS AND DEFINITELY CHALLENGING.
Excellent conditions, well maintained and great views. 5/5 Would reccomend
Had a blast playing this course and the scenery was awesome too! Thanks.
Awesome course in Northern Michigan!
Challenging course, was not disappointed a bit. Staff was great, course had many elevation changes and awesome scenic views.
Course in great shape. Reading the greens was more pilot error than the course's fault. Wide open on a Thurs.
I would play this course every year if the rates were not so high.
Mid week rates are pretty high which kept me from playing this gem more often. Because of golfnow and having special circumstances are both reason why I could afford it this time.
It was a cloudy day but once we waited out the rain, there were no cars other than ours in the lot. If they lower the rates I bet this place would be jammed packed everyday! And if rain is in the forecast, throw a special rate on the internet and people would flock here to play it. Carts are gas and a bit outdated. It is truly a masterpiece hidden gem.
A Great Experience
Only person on the course on a rainy weekday. Staff was great and welcoming. Course is amazing as are the views. From a forward tee it looks very playable for an average golfer. But from the tips, it was a stern and sometimes brutal test for me even as a 2 handicap. A must play!
We had never played Dunmaglas. My husband and I got a good deal and thought why not. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful course. We enjoyed it very much. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We will certainly go back again
The course layout and and scenic views are outstanding. Challenging but fair; not necessarily long but shotmaking is required. Greens are fantastic but a little slow. Don't expect the off-course amenities that you might find at a $55-75 course (pro shop, dining, gps on carts, etc.) but you'll get a great golf course and fantastic customer service. Enjoyed so much the first day that went back again the next day.
Beauty and challenge!@
The course is one of the most challenging yet beautiful courses in the country! Expect to lose a ball or so! A hidden gem.
This course is on a big hill.
Lots of downhill, sidehill and uphill holes. Very scenic. Played weekday afternoon, no one else on course. Greens were in good shape, but kind of slow.
I’ve played this course several times and honestly believe It has the potential to be one of the best in the state.... BUT...
It’s simply not maintained nor respected the way a beautiful golf course should be. As such, I would agree with previous reviews: this should be a mid-priced ($50-$60) round of golf.
Staff: Fantastic! Very friendly & knowledgeable
Pro-Shop: Pretty run down with very little selection to choose from.
Carts: Really old. Would have thought these things were “put out to pasture.” No USB. No club cleaner on the side. No sand to repair fairway divots.
Maintenance: Poor. As mentioned above, the lack of fairway repair tools (sand, etc) means it’s more difficult for the golfer to maintain the course. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seems as if their groundskeeper does too much of this work either.
Raw Course: Terrain, views, challenge, etc.... UNBELIEVABLE!
Bottom Line: A true golf lover with a lot of $ needs to buy this course and bring it up to speed.
Just OK, no food amenities to speak of
Arrived at the course hoping to get a sandwich or something to take out for my round. Nothing available except a few snacks, beer and soft drinks.
Course was OK, pace of play was good after our twosome was able to go past a slow foursome that let us play through.
I feel there are better options at the price in the area, with better amenities and friendlier staff.
Great layout good conditions but overpriced on golfnow
It’s a good value at $60. Not a $100 course in current conditions and amenities.
Nice Conditioned Course
Very challenging course. Course was in great condition. My wife and I enjoyed our ⛳️ Day
I would like to follow up with my last review “Beautiful Place” ........
Again, It is nice ,but IT IS NOT A $100 Course .(worn down golf carts with no GPS) I wanted to reiterate the past reviews....
It’s a $40-$50 golf course. I spoke with the young gentleman that is running the course and we had a conversation
About the subject. He thought it should be a $75-$100 golf course and I said $40-$50 .....
We respected each other’s opinion and he said he was going to contact GOLFNOW and change the Hotdeal prices .
I’m disappointed now cause every time I look at the Hotdeals in that area it’s $80-$90 for a Hotdeal at that course.
PLAY THIS COURSE!!!
6th or so time on the course and I’ve always left pleased. For the price it is definitely one of the best, if not the best, courses you can play in Michigan. Tucked away in Charlevoix with a modest clubhouse, you wouldn’t expect much, but starting from the first tee you’re treated with breath taking views, undulating terrain and a challenge regardless of which tee you choose.
I was happy to see the course was in very good shape considering Dunmaglas doesn’t advertise nearly as much as other northern Michigan courses.
You got a boys trip, book it here. They have some extraordinary accommodations in regard to lodging off the 18th green. Clubhouse may lack an extensive food selection, but they have pops and beer on the ready for you.
Course was wet from recent rain so no roll. Raised greens made it tough. Should be played from tees to suit your handicap - gold for 18 handicap, Would have helped to have a course map to guide shot placement. Spectacular views. Overall a great track and we'll be back.
Second time pkaying
Difficult and hilly layout, course gets minimal play from what I observed. Both days arrived late Saturday morning, 5 or so cars. As a fast twosome, we met noone.
Carts are older and paths are ruff, but the golf challenge is hard to beat.
