This was a course on our 5 day stay and play the person behind the counter seemed genuinely happy to see the 6 of us. We played the course twice and as was the case with the other courses we played was in perfect shape
Workers were everywhere ensuring nothing was left to chance
Hate to mention but I thought I was on solid ground but sank ankle deep in mud had to throw away the shoes. Accidents happen
At the end of the round we decided to have a bite to eat and we were not disappointed with both the food and service
Would return in a heartbeat

Well maintained and a good layout. The only downside to this review is one almost every public course in Michigan is guilty of and that is the marshalls never do their jobs and get slow players to pick up the pace.

Pine Trace is one of the better public courses this conveniently located to the Northern Detroit suburbs. There are lots of tree lined fairways, water hazards, sand traps. Course is well maintained, but can be a sometimes confusing on where to go for the next hole. Follow the arrows on the cart paths to avoid confusion.

We have a weekly group of players that travel around Metro Detroit each week to play. We pick a different course, so we see how many are run and how the courses are maintained. Yesterday we had the misfortune to play Pine Trace. At the first hole we were put behind a group of 6 golfers, all playing together. For experienced players I am sure you can imagine what this meant for the rest of our day. We asked the rangers why he was allowing 6, not very good players to back up the course, and he simply said it was a corporate outing. Six players do make a corporation. We waited on every shot. We waited at the tee, we waited in the fairway and we complained three times, but nothing was done. On a course that used to pride itself on having well-monitored playing, we were all disgusted. The management just didn't care! We will not be back! Whatever they made , I hope it was worth it to them. They didn't even offer us a deal for the future. This over-priced course is not worth the price nor the aggravation. There are far to many golf courses in S.E. Michigan to play Pine Trace. All in all , a very disgusting day!!!

Been awhile since I've played this course. Was surprised by poor condition of tees, greens, fairways. I play about once/ week in Troy/ Rochester/ Clarkston areas and this is in the worst condition of any course I've played recently. Layout is little strange/ poor signage which leaves you at times searching for the next hole. $38 for 9 holes teeing off after 6PM in not reasonable given the current condition.

Great course and layout and always well maintained. Little bit more expensive than other area courses, but worth it. Only knock is they don't have a beverage cart on the course (unless they have since changed). Well worth playing.

Hard to leave a star here but the site needs one. I haven’t played Pine Trace in a few years but a few friends asked me out. I mentioned recently I was told to stay away for numerous reasons but didn’t heed the warning. Please save your cash, time and frustration. First off it was $70.00 to play this past Saturday morning at 6:39 am. 2 players in our foursome were 1 minute late to the ranger shack and the starter made the other 2 to hit. No problem, I get it but one minute late? So we met them in the middle of the fairway where their drives were. It got worse every second after. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were absolutely In the worst shape I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately when the greens were playable the pin placements were In ridiculous locations. Further, no beverage cart was out and to add insult then the starter decided to send out 2 walkers in front of us at the turn. Our gift for making a 6:39 am tee time. It took everything to not have words with someone but the shame was obvious because only one girl was available in the clubhouse And she was serving drinks. Needless to say we will never be back. Again, heed this warning as it is a money grab at best and you will not be happy.

Seven of us at the club house after a round on their golf course and the food was outstanding. Sandwiches included a black angus burger, reuben, BLT, as well as huge taco salad. All were fantastic as was the wait staff.

We brought our wives (2 couples) on this weekend golf trip to Michigan and had a great time - we played all 3 golf courses, Shepherd's Hollow, Pine Trace and Cherry Creek.

All 3 coursed are very challenging with differences that make playing all 3 courses a must during your stay.

Highly recommended!!

I recently attended a wedding as an out of town guest at Pine Trace Golf Club and I cannot say enough great things about my experience here! The staff was super friendly and the wedding venue was phenomenal. Despite the negative reviews about the conditions of the greens, they must have completely transformed as my husband and I had a completely different perception of the course- it was in excellent condition! Understanding the harsh weather conditions, I am actually surprised the course was able to recover as well as it did. The setting and landscape was beautiful, and I really felt taken care of throughout my stay. I would definitely recommend looking into Pine Trace as an option for your events or weddings, and at the very least a round of golf! I know we're already looking into another weekend trip to stay and play.
