Marsh Ridge Golf Course
Played at Marsh Ridge recently with friends. The greens and tee boxes were not attentively maintained with leaves (which is understandable for fall) and earthworm holes (maybe due to recent rain) on them. Pace of play is fine since we are the first group off the tee in the morning. When I got to the course, pro shop has not been opened yet (our tee time is 8:10 AM). Our group checked in at the front desk of the resort and was told to take our carts and go, so we did. Unfortunately there were no keys in the carts. It took us a little while before we can get on our way. The staff and manager are very nice and helpful (rushed to get us checked in and finding the keys to the carts). With so many nice golf courses to play in the area, I will play other courses next time I'm in the area.

Really enjoyed the outing. The course was just difficult enough to be lots of fun but not difficult enough to beat you up.

The prettiest scenery of all the courses we played, but the course condition was the worst. Tees didn't look like they'd been moved all season and greens were in very poor condition. Too bad they don't take care of this beautiful course.

This course was highly recommended, but turned out to be a huge disappointment. Course is not being maintained at all. Found large rocks in sand traps, fringe was in horrible condition, along with tee boxes, fairways and greens. The sand was really dense and heavy and traps don't appeared to have been raked in a very long time. This course, if maintained, would rival the other courses in the Gaylord area, but right now, don't waste your time. Even at $32/round, this course was NOT worth that.

Course was in great shape!
Played a foursome- slow going but a super nice day, so who cares! 10th hole jam up, lunch people merging back into play caused a big backup!

Very nice course with great views & great staff.
Arrived early due to unfamiliarity with the area. Was allowed to go off a little early due to folks with earlier tee time were late. Course was very well manicured and greens were consistent. Lots of trees and a fair amount of water, but not a lot of bugs, thank goodness. Did lose a few balls in the woods and water, so bring plenty of extras. Will definitely come back again someday. Very nice scenic setting in Northern Michigan with great views.
