Still a must play

After having to miss the 2013 golf season, I couldn't be happier to be playing my favorite sport again at what has become one of my all time favorite courses! My husband and I have been playing Dunmaglas for the past 10 years and I have never left disappointed. Perhaps disappointed with my score but never the course! It's known... More

This was one of my favorite courses on the card after playing last year. My family and I discovered the wonderful savings with the "UpNorthLive Golf Card" and traveled around NW Michigan and playing nearly every course. The card holder pays $99 for the season which covers "a round of golf" at each of the courses in that region and... More

Beware as the only bathroom on the course is an outhouse that I wouldn't let my dog use. While the layout is entertaining, there are just too many other options in the area. The greens are tricked up and in poor condition. The fairways are spotty and chopped up. When we finished our round, we went back to the Pro... More

I first reviewed this course last year and gave it a very good rating. I played it again last week and I have to admit it is still a must play. The course is in great shape with each hole private and beautiful. It is very challenging. I think the previous bad reviews are from a foursome that just had... More

I fell in love with the course the first time (had a great score, that helps). Very interesting layout. Nice get away. Very unassuming; just good golf. But the second time I played I had to admit that the course is in very poor condition, including the greens. and @ $99, with zero amenities, they are over charging. Compare Crooked... More

Deeply disappointed. That is the short summary of my experience at Dunmaglas this past weekend. I was excited to play this course, after all it is advertised as one of the top public courses (Golf Digest 1997 & 1998). I had also heard raves about this course years ago from friends and colleagues who had played it. So it was... More

I have played Dunmaglas maybe 15-20 times over the years with family and friends . The layout itself - vistas, challenges, etc- are fine. However, the course today (June , 2014 ) is in horrible condition and the hard winter can not be blamed. Clover growing on uneven uncut tee boxes, tee markers and pin placements clearly unchanged for several... More

Scenic as it gets, awesome elevation changes, great conditions, a strong test. We played it in an almost constant drizzle and still had a most enjoyable time. We are playing it again in three days. Really quite outstanding!!

Scenery of the rolling hills, water, trees, and flowers were breathtaking. A nice golf course that's reasonably priced, especially with the coupon in the paper.
