    One of the nicest tracks in Michigan. Really enjoyed the variation of secluded holes to link holes. Stones walls, and waterfall are great scenery.

    I really liked this course and will come back and play it again. Has a great many challenging holes and then some shorter holes. The course was in great shape and you can tell they work very hard to make sure stays in that kind of shape. I would recommend this course for every kind of skilled player.

    Spectacular course, absolutely beautiful. Very nice conditions for a younger course.
    Fun to play, just short for any one that hits a long ball. Would highly recommend playing to anyone. Also, it's a great value.

    The course is really nice. That is at least what we saw. The play was so slow that we quit after 5 holes. It took us 2.25 hours to complete 5 holes. The course was packed with older slow playing folks, and backed up forever. With no relief in sight, we quit. I have never in 20 years of playing golf quit mid round. The "golf pro" made it sound like it was our fault for being a twosome. He said that we should not make a tee time for 2 ever. No problem, because I won't be back! Why would you ever say that to a paying customer. This guy may be a good golfer, but he needs some work in customer service. We stopped at Moss Ridge on the way home, and Jim the manager said, go play, have fun. Moss Ridge knows how to treat people. I will never make the drive to this course again. I would have given it another shot, until the pro made it sound like twosomes were silly. It happens fella, we don't all play in groups of 4. All of this on a Tuesday afternoon. Seems to draw older people, maybe because its so short.

    This is a really nice golf course..challenging but playable for average golfers like myself. Some really pretty holes; HOWEVER, play is SLOW!!!!! We played on Sunday - front nine 2 hours and 40 minutes (and this was after we called the clubhouse and asked them to send a ranger out) Back was better as some players in front of us only played nine but still slow. would recoomend this course for a family outing, or couples out for a Sunday afternoon, or if you just want to drink beer and hit a golf ball once in awhile. Definitly not for GOLFERS. too bad because it's a nice course. won't go back.

    Golfer 18 in an outing and we all loved it. Beautiful course and great staff. Only thing we found lacking was a beer cart.

    Skip it. Extremely slow. Way too short. Executive course disguised as a par 4. Rock hard and gimmicky.

    They have the new 9 open and have split the new holes with the old. My wife and I only played 9 so we played the back 9 which incorporated the old 6-9th. The new holes are in pretty good shape. Will have to give a report on the other holes next time.

    Ok the lowdown, this is a short course even from the tips.Supposedly 5937 yards from tips. I usually play Pilgrims Run another 15 minutes from home as this course is only 5 minutes from home. I drove over the green on the par 4 "291" yard 12th hole and rarely role the ball anywhere near 300. These measurements are not set by the USGA.

    Aside from that the course does have character with a unique man made waterfall and water on several holes. The greens on the newer holes were small as was the length of the holes.

    They do have a couples twilight after 4 pm wkdays for $25 total w cart compared to $27 at Pilgrims which gives you a large bucket of range balls and a practice range which is a better value considering Golf digest gives Pilgrims a 4.5 rating and generally rated in the top 15 in the state.

    If you are not a long hitter you will enjoy this course but for me I like to air it out and will probably continue to play Pilgrims 3 times for each time I play here . I would give it a try though for sure.
