We golfed in a group of 12 in early June. We opted for the all inclusive and we rented one of the larger vacation homes.
The vacation home was amazing. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, enough showers and bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a giant patio. We were not short on space or luxury.
The resort was very nice and clean overall. The check in was a bit rough as the people behind the desk were not very efficient. It took almost an hour for them to get it right so we could pay per individual. However, they were very nice about it.
The restaurants were good. The food was a good 8/10 if not more. We had steak and lobster, ribs, walleye, etc. Nobody complained about their meals and we had excellent portions. The more casual restaurant for lunch was also good. The burgers and pizza were very tasty.
The golf was really good. Both courses provided different challenges but even our most skilled 9 handicap golfer has his challenges. The courses were well maintained and the greens were excellent and very challenging. The power carts provided were also fantastic as they came with a small cooler attached to keep drinks cold. We did run into some slow golfers and some others who grabbed our balls off the ground, but you get that sometimes at public courses. Overall, both courses I'd give a combined 8/10 for quality and challenge.
The nightlife is all a mixture of locals and people staying at the resort. It was ok at best. The lounge/bar was loud with a live band and the wait for a drink wasn't bad.
My complaints: Overall, the service was not as good as it could have been in the entire resort. The front desk didn't seem to know how to do simple tasks, and during dinner service they only had 1 server for 12 guys. It made for slow dinners and slow service. They were all very nice, but you can't help being slow if there is only 1 server assigned. The people working the White Birch course were also very slow at the counter for check in. It was painful at times how slow they were. The other complaint about the all inclusive is twofold. 1 - you can't have any down time in your rented cabin or condo without bringing your own alcohol. If you want to have a few beers with the guys, you have to do it at the main part of the resort. 2- the cart girls on both golf courses came around very sparingly for all 4 days we played. I've golfed plenty in my life and expect to see the beverage cart every 30-45 mins or about every 3-4 holes. We were lucky if we saw them once an hour, especially on our last day when our all inclusive was up at noon, and we were greeted by the cart girl with 10 mins to go. Also, we got some bad attitude from a couple of younger female servers at breakfast one morning and in the bar for lunch. They may have thought they were being funny, but we found them to be rude and a bit insulting.
Overall, a great resort and concept with good service. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a golfing getaway with friends or family.
