So nobody is going here except for golf. We were making out way around the state playing golf and this was a great stop between the southeast and northwest. Overall it is nice to have the 14 room hotel, clubhouse, restaurant and course all right next to each other. Tom Doak is putting up a new reversible course for next... More

After reading their website and the "glowing" comments of Matty G of the Golf Channel, my son and I left the property wondering what was so special! Yes, the course was in excellent condition but the holes in no way matched the views on the website. Having played two other highly rated public courses in Michigan as well as the... More

As you make the drive to Forest Dunes, you cannot believe there is anything special in the area. There certainly is!! The course is amazing, beautiful and fair to the players. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. The rooms in the lodge are beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our couples night with the bottle of wine, dinner, champaigne and sweet... More

We recently returned from a three day trip to Forest Dunes and enjoyed every moment of our time there. The staff were fantastic and the rooms were spacious and clean. From the moment we checked in to the time we left we were constantly greeted with smiles both from the hotel staff, the cleaning staff and all of the golf... More

We did a stay and play at Forest Dune and the lodge accommodation here was wonderful. Very spacious, well appointed rooms, with comfy beds and very nice linens. Would have rated it one star higher if the cups and glasses in the room had not been plastic. No reason not to have real glasses and coffee cups at these prices.

We did a stay-and-play boys weekend at the Dunes, and the Lodge exceeded our expectations. The beds were super comfy, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the service. After 36 on Saturday and 18 more on Sunday with perfect weather, I can only think how wonderful Forest Dunes is. We play here several times each year, and we... More

I stay at the Lake AuSable Lodge for Labor Day weekend. My husband and I went there to golf at Forest Dunes. We loved everything about the lodge, the golf course and the restaurant. The employees were friendly and helpful. The golf course was impeccable and the lodge was quiet and right next to the club house. The setting for... More

The course is a 5, the lodge is a 5, the service at the restaurant is a 3 (my definition of below average). This is one challenging, championship golf course. Greens as slick as a slate pool table. If you want to play greens that roll and roll true, you need to play this course. The four of us who... More
