A great little course for the casual golfer

My husband and I golf at most three times each summer. The executive course was perfect for us. It's a basic course with an up north feel and reasonable rates.

My sons and I booked a tee time for this golf course in order to 'save' my future son-in-law from having to accompany his future bride to her bridal shower with the girls (think finger sandwiches and inane games-eeww). Bill , unlike his future in-laws (my two sons and I), is not a golfer. I wanted to find a suitable... More

My son, father-in-law and I recently visited Bay Meadow Golf Course. We arrived on time, but the group ahead of us was a little behind. The own asked us if we wouldn't mind hitting some balls on the range until the back-up was cleared. After the round on the course, my son lost his sweatshirt. The owner allowed us to... More

Bay Meadows has always been the golf course people considered to go to "Practice". The course had been owned by the bank and suffered in condition. UNTIL...A new owner, they air rated and top dressed all the greens for the FIRST TIME EVER in course history, and have been double cutting the greens everyday and the fairways...to say the course...

Bay Meadows is pleasant enough. And if you're looking for a course where you're likely to find a tee time, and not looking to spend a lot of time during your outing it's a good outing. I also noted several groups with young children. Given the shortness of the course--with a nine-hole par three-only option, that should not be surprising.

If you are looking for a championship course designed by a well-known pro golfer, this is NOT the course for you. If you want a nice course for a simple round of golf with friends, Bay Meadows would fit the bill.

They have two 9-hole courses. The green course is par-27 with nine par-3 holes. The Blue course is par-32 with four par-3s and five par-4s. The course was in nice condition. Not a championship course but fun to play. They could use some signs to direct you to next hole.

My husband and I, who are not avid golfers we go only a few times a year, had such a great time on the par 3 course. It was so much fun and great for a quick and enjoyable round of golf!!

Best value in town. They boast a sweet executive course, a fun par 3, and great youth programs. The instructors are very good, and they have the best range in the area.

This place is fun. It has a little par 3 course and a larger, but still executive 9. Don't really need a cart here. Really close to town, and affordable. Traverse City doesn't have too many of these options left.
