I have been golfing at Hawkes Eye for well over 10 years now ever since it was built. I stay just West of Gaylord in the Lakes of the North area. I am willing to make the 35 minute drive to Hawks Eye twice a week every week because of the value. This course offers the most beautiful views rivaling... More

First the positives: I arranged for a group of 8 to stay / play at Hawks Eye and The Chief. We stayed September 19-21.Tabitha, with whom I worked to set up our annual trip, was quite pleasant to deal with. Our check in was smooth and the lady who checked us in very pleasant. Our condo was an entire building,... More

I booked a couple's package for my wife and I. The price was great for 2 nights, a round of golf, and dinner. The course was great, even after the hour and a half delay for a thunderstorm. It drained well and we were able to finish. Challenging enough for all levels. We will be back!

Golf course only - we played here a year ago and loved it, so when my wife wanted to play today, we ended up here. All the other courses around Shanty were booked, so I was surprised when they said they were wide open on a Saturday afternoon. I was not so surprised after playing the front nine - many... More

Nice enough condos, some have pools, others do not. The condos were clean, the beds are comfortable, the balcony was very large. The Hawk's Eye Golf Course was beautiful; some houses on it but less than many other courses, a lot of trees and excellent views. The complimentary continental breakfast really downgrades everything else. It is a joke; bring your... More

It far exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent. The condo was furnished extraordinarily well. The view was as good as it could possibly be. We very much enjoyed the restaurants and we also enjoyed the golf course even though you could tell it was stressed by the current weather. We loved the fact that we had a full kitchen in... More

We recently played here and enjoyed it very much. We were lucky enough to be paired with 2 guys that had played here before. Even though we have a Garmin gps, human help on the layout is always best. As seniors, it was quite a challange, but still very playable. Forward tee friendly for me. The course was in very... More

We played the Hawk's Eye Golf Course in mid October and even though they were do to close with a week or so the course was in very good shape. The fairways were excellent and the rough was mowed and any leaves were blown off the course. When we played there were still maintenance men tending to their duties. It... More

One of the best courses in and around Bellaire and Shanty Creek Resort (about a mile away from Shanty). Loonnnggg course. Beautiful rolling scenery. Well manicured. Well..you get the idea. We did a res through golf now. $27 each. Fantastic. A must play if you're in the area. Sort of sparse pro shop although you're likely not there to buy... More

Our group of 10 golfers visited here in 2012 and had a great time. The clubhouse was still a trailer at that time but the employees were very helpful. I left my GPS unit on the cart and didn't realize it until I was home in Lapeer. I called the shop and they said they had it and shipped it... More
