    Truly remarkable.

    For an all encompassing northern Michigan golf course, this hits all the requirements; undulation, scenic, isolated and challenging. Only a matter of time before this course and The Dream are ranked on a national scale.

    This course is awesome! The scenery, the solitude, and the beauty of this course ranks The Nightmare among the best. The course is immaculate in its conditioning, and coupling a round here with The Dream less than a mile away makes for one of the best weekend golf experiences I've had in Northern MI.

    We went to this course on a whim to pass time before we headed further north for the "big boys".

    What a pleasant surprise. This course was in excellent condition (June) and offered all sorts of fun with risk reward.

    When in the area, we will definitely play it again.
