“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We were lucky enough to hit this course in the fall with the leaves seeming to change before our eyes. The holes are cut into the woods so hitt'em straight and be strategic...it is not always the long ball that's your best shot. Despite being fall, the course was in phenomenally good shape and well maintained.

“Friday Morning Golf”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Loved the lay out of the course. Had to be the hardest course I have played. 6688 yards from Blue Tees and a par 73.

The only draw back was the leaves. Lots on the greens.

“Please save your money”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Our organizer of our trip called way in advance for our group of 14. This was the second of the 4 courses that our group would play this weekend. The rate quoted was $50 U.S. Dollars. We arrived to get no help in the bag drop area. I am ok with that, just sharing the unfriendly experience shortly after. We walk inside to pay greens fees, and the man behind the counter, I could not call him a gentleman of any sorts, says we are charging $65 U.S. Dollars !! Very agressive tone of voice. We showed him the confirmation. He said we are a rated top ten course and this is the rate. We did question it and he became very upset and said is it about the money? Now, it sure is not the money , we all are 6 figure family men that go up to the Gaylord area every year to play golf. He just kept saying top 10 guys. They were not busy at all. All other courses in the area were slammed. We now know why they are not!. No rakes on the course for the traps, no cut fairways or first cut of rough, pin placements were not regulation on 5 greens ( yes we measured) These are just a few of the huge dissapointments we experienced. Overall service just awful . Overall course rating extremely poor. You need to replace that guy at the counter. Our awful experience was 9-15-2012. Save your time and money folks. Not Good . TNBG

“18 holes in 3hrs for $30!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Are you looking at golf in Gaylord area, well this might be the spot for you! Very nice course, well maintained and friendy. Whie many of the other courses in the area a still charging a premium price +$50 for 18, this course offers all the same amenities at $30. We got off at 9am and were the 2nd or 3rd off, and our golf clubs were in the car by 12:10!! The course is in very good shape and well maintained, fairways are set up for righties and are just wide enough for that errent tee shot to be playable, but a slice will put you in lost ball territory, greens are on the fast side with quite a bit of bounce! There are two courses right next to each other so you really have 36 holes at great prices!

“Beautiful and challenging”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Breathtaking views and challenging holes. The green on number 14 was ridiculous but the rest were fair but slow. When we started we were the only car in the parking lot and the only ones on the course at 8:30am so we flew around without seeing anyone. Hope they are making ends meet. It was a delightful day and we will be back.
