Older course, walkable, nothing tricky but nice.
Course in good condition particularly given the time of year. Greens were nice and smooth. Overall pleased with the experience.

Nice layout, greens are challenging
Realizing that it is the end of the season, yet I was still disappointed as we had to wait for carts to be returned, so we teed off 25 minutes late, mostly due to allowing open golf to tee off too close to our scheduled tee time. Then not having a ranger to help facilitate play as the aforementiond foursomes had no golf ediquette or sense of urgency and were horribly slow. I have played at this course numerous times, it always is a pleasure, but this time it was just awful due to their inability to keep things moving at a moderate pace.

one of best public courses in Michigan
great value. As owned by the city, profits go to maintain and improve the course.

Getable course from fairway, punching trees in rough.
This is a very fun course to play. I've shot everywhere from a 46 to 55 on each nine (26 handicap). If you play in the fairway you can easily attack the greens with your irons, but if you get into the rough you can play underneath a ton of trees requiring you to risk going low or pitching out into the fairway and losing a stroke. The greens have enough slope to be challenging but allow for makable long putts. The first two holes are a hard start (Par 5 #3 handicap and Par 4 #5 handicap) but the course eases up a bit from there.
The value for the course is unbeatable for the area. The only issue is that if you play midday you are going to get stuck behind lots of amatuers which will slow your round down greatly. The best bet is to get to the course early morning to beat the crowds.

The course has great variety
I had worked this course as a mower for 7 years and I have never seen it in better condition. Fairways are wide and the greens are well manicured and receptive.

Oldtime Parkland Course
For an old muni that gets lots of play, the course was in good shape. Odd layout par 35 on the front, 37 on the back. Cool course would play again.
