Target golf but fair

Played in October, the greens were punched but still rolled well. It's a very pretty course with great mounding and tree lined holes. Lots of forced carries off the tee and fairways usually slanted towards the hazards. Quite of few blind shots as well. Fun to play but definitely not a minimalist sort of course and probably not worth the standard rate.

Very challenging

Second most difficult course I played this season but I’m glad I played it. Kind of a strange layout with an extra par 3 and par 5. The front nine has three par-3’s in four holes. My advice is to really prioritize the approach shots and strive for advantageous angles into the green. Greens were very deep and undulating and I’m guessing they were rolling quicker than an 11.5 Greens didn’t hold approach shots well which got annoying. Bunkers didn’t have as much sand as most courses do.

My only complaint is the staff was cold towards us. We were told 4 times by different employees to keep pace of play because they were so busy. On hole 15 we were advised we were 4 minutes behind. 4 minutes behind is not a big deal in my book.

Much tougher than St. Ives

Tullymore has eluded me the past few years even though I played the sister course - St. Ives - twice. I can say that Tullymore is considerably more difficult. The course is very tricked up, with lots of difficult carries, undulating fairways and greens, and an assortment of difficult pin placements. The course was in great shape and I consider it one of the more difficult and yet beautiful courses I have played in Michigan. I highly recommend it.

Conditions

For a course that bills itself as a premier destination golf location the conditions were rough. Greens were marked up pretty bad and the fairway were rough in spots. This probably was due to the late season but for the price it disappoints. The design gets boring after a while too...all but a few holes had forced carry off the tees. People were very friendly and helpful. Would hesitate to recommend this course as a jewel.

Play 36 and make it a day

We played 36 holes starting off at sister course St. Ives and finishing the round at Tullymore Golf. Simply put - outstanding golf course. Well maintained. You set the level of challenge depending on the tees you select. A hybrid of blue and white was perfect for our foursome. Beverage cart was well-stocked and kept us properly hydrated the entire round. Water views on the back-9 were stunning. Great layout - a true gem.

Overall, our round at St. Ives was pleasant. It was a new challenge with narrow fairways, big dog legs and plenty of hazards. We were disappointed to not have GPS tracking in the carts. Also, the driving range conditions were pretty rough, but understandable being the end of the season.

St. Ives is GREAT

I hadn't played this course in about the last 8 years and wanted to get a last round in before we move out of state. It was FANTASTIC as I remembered even though we received 2+ inches of rain in the last 12 hours before I played. It was cart path only which is expected. I will miss this course for sure!.

Tullymore Won't Disappoint

An interesting and beautiful layout demands thoughtful shotmaking. Manicured bentgrass fairways and smooth greens make this course a delight. Golf cars have latest technology to help with this.

Get More Tullymore if you can

Fun golf course with 5 par 5’s and 5 par 3’s. It is very playable and with 5 sets of tees, it can challenge ANY PLAYER! It was quite wet the day I played it, so the greens were a bit slow for my liking, but they were VERY SMOOTH. I was unaware that this was part of a resort until I arrived here. The driving range is small, the putting green is a bit small, and there is not much of a chipping area to speak of. The layout is a Jim Engh design, and I generally don’t care for his work, but this course was an exception. Although, this course has some of his common design elements (wayward shots are funneled toward the target green or fairway) it’s not too prominent. You will have the opportunity to use every club in the bag, and the carts have GPS. If you are on your way traveling from central MI to northern MI, give this course a try, I think you will really enjoy it.

Very nice golf course

I played St. Ive's for the fifth time past this week. This is a really fun course that is always in good shape. The first hole and 13th hole are a little goofy. But overall, this is a great course for the money.

We always plays St. Ive's and Tullymore on Monday and Tuesday on our way to more golf the rest of the week in Northern Michigan.

Very beautiful layout and challenging lots of twists and turns! The only issue was pace of play as they had a big corporate scramble going on and very slow play!

Prepare all the clubs in your bag

I traveled up to St. Ives on a short getaway. The course challenges you to use every club in your bag as a lot of the tee shots have doglegs or fairways that run out. I played from the back tees and found myself using my driver once in the first five holes. The course will be challenging if you cannot keep it in the fairway as there is plenty of trees to get in your way. The finishing five holes are the toughest on the course and require accuracy as water comes into play on all but 18. I would play this course many times over and plan on returning to St. Ives.

An amazing experience.

One of the best courses I’ve ever played in my life. The layout was incredible and had us sight seeing just as much as we were golfing. The staff was overly friendly and accommodating. We also checked out the top golf facility/bar area and it looks incredible. We will definitely be back time and time again.

Never thought I would leave with a new course in my TOP 3 in Michigan VERY IMPRESSED!

I was blown away from start to finish, and what I mean by start is even the initial phone call I was treated with such kindness and respect! Without making this long and drawn out Tullymore knocks it out of the park. The best way I could describe it would be if "Pilgrim''s Run somehow got even nicer in every area and moved to Traverse City and that is how you feel as you play Tullymore, IT WAS GOOSEBUMPY! Enjoy and hit em straight because if you get sloppy it can be a long day but if you stay disciplined you can light it up a bit. Only complaint is the greens were basically unplayable because they aerated them and they were just caked in sand so putting was impossible. Would have been nice to know that however we were never told but I also am guessing why it was such a great deal! It didn't take away from my appreciation of this beauty, instead all it did was make me want to come back even faster to see how much better this place could potentially be! ENJOY!

Regards,

Coach O (Grand Rapids Mi)
