Black Forest & Wilderness Valley
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.

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.

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.

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.

Great layout but course conditions with a few rough edges. The layout wins as it is awesome for a golf purist! Tough test with a few crazy greens!

will golf this course again
from the whites, hit my driver a half dozen times. greens in very good shape and roll great! fairways also in good shape. bunkers need work tho, they look horrible! lots of turning fairways and can't wait to shoot here again. specially now I know what's n the other side of those hills. good for more accurate and not so long of hitters. keeps the whole group competitive.
