A letter I sent to the Resort. "I am writing a very belated thank you note to your resort. After the nasty wind storm we suffered in Elk Rapids last summer, we found ourselves with a houseful of company and no electric power. Your reservation people provided us with two rooms at a reasonable price - no gouging. Your friendly... More

They tee off groups of 4 every 7 minutes. The course was jammed up. Groups waiting at every tee box and the ranger keeps coming around "reminding us to keep pace" we waited on every hole for the group in front of us and they were waiting on the group in front of them. 6 hours for 18 holes. Slowest... More

We did not stay here but often come here for golf. The course is challenging from every tee box. The holes vary in length and elevation. There are two great elevation change par threes and two wonderful design par fives.The pro shop is small but well equipped with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The only draw back to the course...

We were a group of 12 golfers from Canada who play a scramble round to save time and since we are seniors it makes it more enjoyable. All 3 groups completed the round in 4 hours and 45 minutes but the staff thought our first group was too slow ans since we started on the back nine and making the... More

Played Memorial Day, were only a dozen or so cars in lot. Expected to pay $39 but they charged us only $30 at 1 pm. Was ranked 12th in state( tied with Thousand Oaks) so I expected great things. Layout of the course is very nice but the condition was fair at best. The first 5-6 holes had a lot... More

We had a beautiful day on the course! Decent price of $49 per person for 18 holes with cart. Nice and leisurely, barely saw anyone else on the course through 18 holes. Was a little disappointed with the bar/restaurant option, hot dogs and nachos were the only items available, and the bar had no tap beers and single shot bottles... More

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

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.

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
