I love the layout, it makes you use every club in your bag. The course maintenance is lacking, I have never seen so many rocks in the sand traps. The staff wasn't very friendly.

Truly a top course destination. It is extremely well manicured. Greens, fairways and even the rough are in great shape. Showed up without a tee time and they were very accommodating getting me out. 5 sets of tees so anyone can play from their comfort zone.

Very well maintained, nice fair greens, challenging but not frustrating. Very enjoyable course to play. I'd like to return, there are some holes I'd play differently! Recommend!

Played The Quest Golf Club on a beautiful day. An 18-hole course with 5 sets of tees. The longest tees are 6,782-yards and 5,025-yards from the shortest tees. A beautiful course that is both fun and challenging. There is water and sand on the course. A course worth driving several hours to play.

This golf course was exactly what we were looking for and was exactly as we were told it would be by the manager at the Beachfront Hotel. The hotel we were staying at (not far of a drive to) told us we would be very pleased with The Quest to get 18 holes in before dinner. We aren't professionals, but... More

I have played many courses and this is my new favorite, with the large greens they can put the pins in different locations to make the approach shots different each day. The par 4's are really par fours and not always reachable in two, you have to hit good shots on each hole to keep your score down but for... More

Front 9 is more open in places but has plenty of traps and water to challenge you. The back 9is more your typical Northern Michigan Course with trees lining both sides of the fairways. Very nice course and moderately priced for the location

The price is right for our group and its a tough course as we need a challenge once in a while. We go there about 3 times during the summer

Very nice course at a very cost competitive price. Took lots of pictures and will be back with a bunch of guys next spring. 5 sets of tees allow for everybody to compete.
