    Discovered this course a couple of years ago. Now I will not go to Ludington without playing it. Perfect greens and fairways, and amazing use of sand dunes. Should be a top 15 course in the state in my mind. Hole 12 might be my favorite hole of all time.

    One of if not the best value in the state. The course is in excellent condition and is very well maintained. Staff is very friendly and appreciative. Very lucky to have found this Gem of a course.

    Underrated, stunning golf course. Took me totally by surprise. We decided to play here on advice from a friend of a friend. We were really up there to play Arcadia Bluffs, but were looking for another course to play, so we thought we'd give it a shot. Glad we did. Very unique, very well maintained course, with a unique character all its own. Very reasonable rates. Must play. If it were closer to Gaylord or Traverse City, it would be among the top rated courses.

    Really unique course that is always in excellent condition. Greens are the best I have ever putted on. You will really enjoy the scenery of each hole! Enjoy, I'm sure you will.

    Excellent course in great condition, some of the best greens in the state. Visually stimulating, especially the back nine. Make sure you move up a tee if a higher handicap. Wide fairways, but off the fairway is mostly trouble. Lots of sand, but all sand are waste bunkers. Great back to back par 5's in No's 11 & 12. Good luck!
