Loon Golf Resort
About Loon Golf ResortThe Loon Golf Resort has grown to include a second location in Gaylord: The Ridge, formerly the Marsh Ridge Golf Resort. The Loon offers a townhome village with four-bedroom/four-bathroom units with full kitchens just steps from the clubhouse restaurant and the course. The Ridge is more versatile with hotel-style rooms, suites and free-standing condos, all within walking distance to the Summit Grill. Lodges named Copenhagen (11 rooms, one apartment), Summit (20 rooms) and Bergen (12 rooms) all feature a large common/recreation area. The Scandinavian Cabin sleeps 12 with six bedrooms, a fireplace, full kitchen and living area. Its 6,231-yard course is short but beautiful. The 6,418-yard Lakes course sports four holes on Lake Michaywe roughly four miles from both resort properties.

I was shocked with the way the bar staff acted when I asked if there was ever water on the course. She said "no, but there is a beer cart girl." I then said we didn't see her and her response was, "well her cart can't make it up most of the holes on the front." I recommended a new cart for her and got nothing but attitude back. All in all not impressed as other courses and there should be water out or a cart girl that comes to is in the heat we were playing in. I recommend any course but this one in Gaylord!
The first 9 holes were fine but the back nine was so slow we had to quit after the 13th hole. The slow play was very bad & no ranger. At one time there was 4 of us on one hole. One group on the green, the second on the fairway waiting and the group ahead of us waiting to tee off and us also waiting to tee off . Never experienced that before! Not sure we will ever try there again.
Great round of golf
The course is in awesome shape!!! The People who work there are great... Nothing bad to say about this golf course. We will be playing it again really soon:-)
Pace of play
There was a foursome in front of us that was slow otherwise everything would have been fine
Had a wonderful time overall. Course was in excellent condition. Only issue was slow play with a foursome ahead of us that didn't offer to let us play through and no ranger on course.
Challengeing course for the beginner to intermediate. Will definitely play again
There was no savings for using golf now
There was no savings for using golf now. The golf now rate was the same as the regular rate. The tee boxes need alot of work as well
Worth the time to play
Excellent condition. Greens were immaculately trimmed. Challenging but playable. Only drawback was the pace of play due to several large groups of foursomes. My wife and I played the front nine twice to avoid the slow play which is great because I like the fron better but both are beautiful.
disappointed in Gaylord
We booked on last minute golfer and that was the last good experience of this golf course. The golf course was in horrible condition from the tee box's with four inch crab grass to the fairways that look like the where rototilled and debris everywhere. Now lets get to the greens. They had sticks all over them and again look to not have been cut in a week. We actually found a roller from one of there mowers in the middle of one of the greens. So in a nut shell Dont waste your time and money
This course has been poorly taken care of.
This is not my first time at this course, and I was extremely disappointed with the pace of play, and the course conditions. It almost appeared that it will soon close.
I know it's early in the season however winter clean up should at least be addressed.
I used to be happy to bring people here.
Nice course, needs some TLC
Nice course, with lots of challenges. Several forced carries over marsh and water. Elevation changes, both up and down. Pace of play was great until two groups from an outing were put in front of us playing best ball. We would have played in 1/2 hour less, easily.
The course, however, needs some TLC. Lot of weeds on tees on fairways. Greens were in better condition. We played early in the year, so this may have been a part of it. We saw maintenance on the course, clearing leaves, etc from fairways, and areas near, so they were definitely working on it.
Would definitely play the course again, however. We got a great bargain with GolfNow, so the condition did not take away from our enjoyment.
Fun course to play in good shape. Some very tough holes. Beautiful course to play in the fall.
GREAT COURSE! Very Friendly Staff!
Course is in excellent condition, and it was a great day for autumn golf.
This course is beautiful.
The Loon is a fun course to play. Not too difficult for an occasional golfer, like myself.
Excellent course very playable for all types of golfers
Excellent had a great time would play again up north golf is great
Very, Very Nice Golf Course!!
I felt I got a very good deal at a great golf course. I was treated very well and had a great time! Thanks Much.
Great combination of water and woods
Always a pleasure to play with rolling terrain and great views.
Excellent course, was raining on and off all morning so that didn't help the time it took us to get around the course, there was a group of 8 guys ahead of us(2 foursomes) that seemed to be having trouble in the rain. But we didn't mind, had a really good time. FYI, it is close to I75 so there is some freeway traffic noise but no big deal unless maybe its Friday afternoon and there's a ton of traffic coming north.
The course though pretty in setting was in the worst shape of any course I've ever played.
Someone please tell the management at Marsh Ridge their course is in very poor shape. The fairways are a little more then clover and weeds. The T-boxes are not much more than sand filled divots. The greens are blotchy and rough and apparently no one attends to the ball marks on this course. It was the biggest disappointment of my entire golfing experiences
Very good Northern Michigan course, many chutes off the tee, greens large and undulating
The course has enough variation in typography to be interesting. Put it on you schedule when you spend time in Gaylord, Michigan, at a number of really fun courses with breathtaking views. It is more modestly priced than some in the area and could be a beautiful course with a little more attention to maintenance. Restaurant is great; people friendly.
