Great golfing on a well-tended course

This course lived up to our expectations. It was in great shape, although some of the fairways were being aerated, which made some of the holes more challenging.

I really enjoyed the golf course. A little expensive, but likely the best course layout and condition in the area. A very enjoyable golf outing.

We have played the Fortress for many years, and it has always been in fantastic condition and provides the best value for your dollar. However, this year the course was incredible! The best conditions we have ever experienced. Can't wait to play it again!

I've experienced many golf courses, throughout several states, but this course was, by far, the best, ever. It was challenging, but fun. The excellent care given to the course, as well as the beauty that surrounds the course, as well as the entire city of Frankenmuth, make this a destination you'll seek.

Finished playing this week with a group of 24 senior golfers of all handicaps and everyone had a very enjoyable round. Greens had just been sanded but ran true and fairways were very well kept. Will make an annual trip to this gem

This was our 11th year of travelling to golf at The Fortress with three other couples and the ladies shopped at the Birch Run outlet mall. The course was in excellent shape and great rates for seniors for a course of this quality. A must play if your in the area. It's the best course in this part of Michigan.... More

This is the ONLY time you'll see me near a golf course. A special event on Friday evenings during the summer (right next to the golf course), is the Zehnder's BBQ cookout series. There are different themes each Friday. The one I attended was Kansas City Style Ribs Night. All you can eat ribs (and other filler food distractions...why bother...you... More
