Outstanding Resort Golf!

Played here many times in recent years. Course seems to get better every year. Excellent maintenance of fairways and greens. Real sand in the traps. A pleasure to play.

Slow pace of play

Rangers did not do a good job of keeping the pace of play moving. One group ahead of us was two holes behind the group they were following. Ranger did nothing to help improve this. Will not play this course again

Very Nice Course

This is a very nice course. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were in very good shape. The second cut grass was a little on the high side ( being cut as we played ). Play this course once a year and if the cost was a little less, would play it more. But as far a courses go, this course is just about as nice as you'll find in Norther Michigan.

Unsatisfactory

Played there many and always enjoyed Today was a total disaster. After 4 hours we had only completed 13 holes. There was a group of about 15 guys ahead of us who had no respect for golf or others around them. Many people behind us had already quit. We stopped after 13 holes because it was painful.

Pace of play

I Love this course. The round today was the only time that playing was completely frustrating. Two 4-somes in front of us not only played incredibly slow, but we had to stand and watch them walking around in hip tall grass looking for a lost ball. One guy spent fifteen minutes and found his ball. Then he tried to hit it out of the grass! We finally walked away on the 16th hole. A course of this caliber should be managed better. Maybe a course cart that runs through to keep a pace.

Very slow

Greens were fairly fast and true. Fairways were excellent and all holes are different requiring several kinds of shots. All that good is hard to appreciate when the pace of play is so slow. 5 hrs to play and as a twosome we played at our own pace until number 5.
