Yarrow Golf and Conference Center
Everything was great. The weather, course, and movement of play. I thought because of low price I payed, that the course would be booked heavy, and the play would be slow. I was wrong!

Great location and course
I played 9 holes on Father's Day in the late afternoon.
Staff as always were friendly and helpful.
I guess i was not the only one playing that time of day as there was quite a backlog at the opening tee.
Course was in good condition as it always seems to be. The drink cart was offered regularly which certainly helps with 85% humidity. Overall i love this course.....for my ability its fair challenge

What a Treat to be able to play this Master Piece!!!
I played 18 in the morning, and played here in the afternoon. From the drive into Yarrow to park, and walking in to pay, the staff were all smiles and friendly to me. I Liked the fact that not having GPS on the carts they did have hole by hole Yardages on the score card here, Like a yardage book the expensive courses try and sell you, it was free here, big plus. Driving down to the first tee and coming to it, you see this course is senic, and narrow, and has many elevation changes coming. Again I tested the tips and Black tee's here. And found it tuff but fare to the guys like me that love the Length. Huge difference from tips to white tee's here. I couold of shot par of few over from the whites here no problem. Lots of water here, and marsh lands. Great mix of bunkers, and dog legs, and the greens here where in mint and tops shape, next to zero Divots on the greens. I thought the rough was I bit high but again they have head tons of train, so I won't say its the courses fault. I give this course 2 thumbs up for sure. And lets just say, Every hole is a challenge in it's self. A lot of forced carries from the tip here from the tee's. Oh the greens speed were very good as well. Now the bad news we encountered here. Pace of play was extremely horrible. 5 ad 1/2 Hours to play this course. A round should take 4 at most if golfers are keeping pace. We waited from hole 3 to 18 for a long time around 10n to 15 minutes just to tee off. and that got me frustrated. was told there was a best ball tournament going on here. I have played many best ball tournaments and they go fast not at a snails pace. The course is a great course. and the 18th finishing hole has to rank up as one of my top 5 I have ever played in the country, best in Michigan so far for me. It was to long a day here. But in the end I am happy and glad I put this on my list of courses to play in Michigan this season.

Beautiful course, not kept up like it should
I use to love Yarrow. But now, they let the greens get away from them a bit. Super slow, bumpy greens. The staff don't like people, but book tee times every 2 minutes because it makes them another buck. No beverage cart on an 80° day was also a bummer. But the course is still beautiful, spectacular ending 5 holes. I'd say golf here, but don't pay more then $40. Could be a $80 course if run right.

Northern Michigan course in Southwest Michigan
Loved he course, the changes in elevation and subtle curves of the fairways combine with undulations to produce all sorts of stances and shots. If you variety and challenges, you need to play here for a great experience. Forget your handicap, you will score higher. From multi-level greens and thick rough, this course will make for a fun and possibly challenging round of golf. Enjoy the scenery and lush vegetation along the course with wildlife visible as well. Have fun and hit it straight.

Lots of bang for your buck
First time playing. Similar to playing in upper MI but without the drive. Great course, totally beautiful. Will play it often.

Best course within 25 miles of Kalamazoo
Yarrow is a challenging course that can reward smart patient play. I do not recommend for beginners but novice to elite players can appreciate the challenge.
