I golfed the Tribute with a couple friends over the weekend for the 1st time. I have to say it was an incredible experience for all of us. The views were spectacular, the course was amazing, with the exception of a couple greens that had been hit with mold. Over all I would highly recommend this course, especially in the... More

I stayed at the resort for 5 days. I had dinner there twice and it was not very good. The food was not prepared very well and it was almost cold when I had it placed before me. I gave them a second chance because I assumed they were just busy the first night but when I was disappointed the... More

We come up here and stay every year to golf Treetops and the Tribute course. We stopped staying at Treetops years ago the the lodging got so bad there. We stay at Otsego Club and book one of the excellent updated rooms in the Hilltop Lodge. You can't beat it! You get a little kitchen, dining table and living room... More

Decided to play the Tribute course after reading online reviews in Northern Michigan golf sites. The course had some interest views and was OK but it was suffering badly from the hot, dry summer that part of the country has endured. We didn't know that, however, until we were checking in at the Pro Shop. You know when they offer... More

Every year we come with a group of guys to the Otsego Club. Started to notice some short comings last year with the courses. This year yikes. We are paying a high rate for not such good conditions. The Tribute views are still there but the greens were unplayable in many locations on them. Plugged areas, 1' x 1' square... More

My group always looks forward to playing The Tribute. The views, the quality of the course, one of our favorites. This time was different. I know it has been dry, but for the price they charge, our group expected more. Lots of burnt areas in fairways, around the greens really bad (#4), and that is just not typical of this... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Tribute. We are sorry that the course did not meet your expectations. Yes, the extremely dry weather has brought to light some design issues which need correcting, fortunately these issues do not affect the play-ability of the course. We have discussed this with the course architect and have found and purchased... More

This used to be one of our favorite stops on our annual trip to the area. We hadn't played there the last two years and we couldn't wait to get there. Started off with the old pro shop being closed and moved into a smaller location. Guy behind counter appeared very confused about the voucher we had from our vacation... More

Really looked forward to golfing at the Otsego Club and the Tribute course. First, I want to say that the course itself compares to some of the Treetops courses. So the course, views, and difficulty were great. The 5 hours it took to play 18 not so fun. The problems started when we waited about 30 minutes after our scheduled... More

Lovely views on the Tribute golf course. Some tough holes for female golfers. Tricky greens. Wide fairways. Round took about 5 hours midweek. Really bad placement of port-a-johns, so ladies keep imbibing of liquids to a minimum. I would give the course a higher rating, but after paying $65 for a round, I was expecting much better bathroom facilities out... More
