Best Conditioned Course in the Area

I play in a league at the Fortress. It is as well conditioned as any course in MI, it is a little bit pricey but not when compared to other great courses like Arcadia Bluffs. It favors a straight and long driver. The heather is tough and the greens are very fast. It is a beautiful course. The staff is friendly and there are many places for excellent food in Frankenmuth.

First timer

Five stars. First time I’ve ever played it after years of hearing how good it is. Set up is challenging but very fair. Fairways are pretty generous. Lots of bunkers but I felt that 70% of them help save your errant shots rather than being penalizing. Greens run fast and true. Tee boxes are flat and well maintained, not a mine field of divets. Landscaping and maintenance details galore make the round a joy.

Awesome Track

5 Star course that’s in excellent shape with fast greens

The Fortress is one of my favorite courses and is totally worth the hour drive to play. I finally pared #13...#1 handicap hole with water on both sides of the fairway. I love the course and the workers are all friendly and attentive.

Gorgeous

My mom and I got this on a Hot Deal so we only paid $26 each for 18. This is the best manicured course I've ever played on. The holes are long and hilly. It's a beautiful course and I look forward to bringing my husband back to play so he can see it for himself!

Beautiful golf course

Could not ask for a better fall day to play this beautiful course. Blue skies and sunshine really accentuated the colors of the trees, adding to the beauty of this course! Very nice layout and conditions! Only one drawback, we were not aware that the greens were aerated. I guess we were not surprised being that it’s October in Michigan

The Fortress is absolutely one of the best manicured, as well as challenging courses in Michigan. The staff are gracious and hospitable. The club pro may be the best at what he does. No cookie cutter lessons. Everything about the Fortress makes it worth every penny.

Great place

Quickly has become my favorite course in mid Michigan. Not only for value but also for course condition there are not many that can compete with the fortress.
