If you appreciate classic design on land that was naturally destined to become a superb golf course layout, you'll want to play Black Forest again and again. It is one of those rare golf courses you can never tire of playing because it will present you with a different look and challenge every time out.

Black Forest's greens are a marvelous equalizer. The bomber will quickly realize that position on the green with respect to the hole location is more important than brute force. And the player adept at chipping and approach putting will have numerous opportunities to win holes.

Nice track but very challenging. Played the blues, pars were tough to get. Lots of slope. Fairway and greenside bunkers challenge your shot selection. Greens are large and undulating. Cool looking holes though. You are definitely Up North! Could use a little TLC overall. August 25, 2014
Tough Greens Great layout for a golf course deep in the woods cut out of nowhere with the toughnest greens I have ever played. Don't forget your camera! August 19, 2014
Play time Sent us off the back 9 as there was a group of 5 carts lined up on the front nine. Great play and in good time. Friendly folks back at the bar when we finished with good drinks. All in all great time. August 17, 2014
Great Layout, Very Challenging. Fairway problems This was my third time playing Black Forest. One of the hardest courses I've every played, but enjoyable. Great layout. Unfortunately this time the fairways were blemished. Lots of dead spots. Certainly wasn't for a lack of water because the fairways were absolutely soaked. August 11, 2014
The hype is real For the most part the course was in good shape. Some of the fairways on the front nine had some damage. Greens are amazing. Staff was excellent, however if your on a road trip like I was and was counting on a shower....don't. August 10, 2014
Great value through golf now Every year my son and I play a good course for his birthday my treat. We knew we would be in Gaylord this week and Black Forest came highly suggested. I never even knew this resort was there. We got the 52% discount by taking the 7:30 tee time. We were the only ones there and made it to the first tee by 7:00. The only people we saw during the whole round was a twosome that we allowed to play through and a groundskeeper that followed us for a few holes. The course is challenging and the greens are anything but flat and straight but they were not as hard as others have written. I did 3 putt 8 greens but most were due to just poor putting. I really don't like paying more than $50 per round and with the discount this course is fantastic. August 6, 2014
this course it just seen a tornado the night before and wasn't pretty good shape only if you down trees discourse id see the tornado the day before and it was in pretty good shape only if you down trees but the markers in the fairway were terribly disappointing you couldnt even see them!

Another Northern Michigan Gem! Great course, cut through the pines as typical northern michigan premium courses. Tough undulating greens that will require a good flat stick player. Several tee boxes are challenging as you are hitting out of a narrow chute and need plenty of carry. July 15, 2014
