Devil's Ridge Golf Club
This was my first time playing this course, and when my girlfriend's father asked if I wanted to golf, I said sure! I consider myself to be a "less than average" golfer, typically just going out and hitting the ball with a few friends, etc. What a great course this is in northern Oakland county! Picturesque views on most of the front nine, challenges at every turn, etc. The course conditions themselves were absolutely astounding, comparable to many of the courses one would find up north! Accurate tee shots, irons, and approaches are required on this course. Some holes are a cakewalk while others are a very big challenge! I loved the layout, Golf sometimes ends up with you hitting blindly around a dog-log, so be it! Pace of play was solid, 4 hours for 18 in a threesome. Overall, extremely satisfied and will be back again!

Great Course & Great Condition
Devil's Ridge is a great course and is in great shape from tee to green. I really enjoy this golf course. Only a few holes are really challenging and the rest are very fair. If you have not played here before, your missing out on a gem!.

Playing at Devil's Ridge for the 3rd time this summer, the layout and design of this course continue to draw me back. Although several holes are not traditionally layed out, this course stresses accurate tee shots and creative approache shots, making it both challenging and fun. The true reason that this course stands out to me, though, is that the greens are large, fast, and smooth. Although I do like courses that boast long straight par 4s allowing the driver to be tee'd up more regularly, this course encourages accurate iron shots, which can't hurt any golfer. My overall pace of play was just under 4 hours for 18, the food was good, and the staff was exceptional. No complaints.

Best Course In North Oakland County
Great course. Could not have been a better experience. Staff was great. Loaded clubs right from the trunk of the car. Didn't have to do a thing. They were even cleaned before i teed off. Starter was very friendly and informative. Had a wonderful time. Course looked and played nice. Great value for my money. Best course in North Oakland county for my opinion.

ALL THE GOOD REVIEWS ARE FAKE
This course is a joke and should be avoided simply because of how they manage the course. I will do my best to make it known your course is terrible and should be avoided until you compensate me properly. Mismanagement isn't an excuse and pace of play is important to any GOOD golfer. if you want to be the course with 30 handicappers then keep doing what you're doing. 8 hours for 1 round is ridiculous. We only made it halfway before we had to quit because the 10th tee had 3 groups backed up onto it. I will make sure the people i played with post reviews as well until we are compensated. Don't send me a "code" to give me 25% off your premium rate on your website as compensation because that costs more then what i paid here on golf now.

Horrible layout for golfers
I am puzzled as to how this course has received so many positive reviews. The best I can figure is that most of the reviews on here are from high handicappers who go out to enjoy beer and lose 3 sleeves. I played here twice and I will NEVER play here again. The second time I only played here because a client of mine wanted to play it. I LIVE in Oxford so distance is not a factor for me. The layout is just awful. Who wants to hit a 7 iron off the tee? I mean seriously, this course is ridiculous. Most of the time you basically just have to guess because you are hitting over a hill to a narrow dogleg. I actually shot decent score and hated every minute of it. You rarely get to have a reward of seeing your well hit shot land in the fairway because the landing area is usually out of sight. You never get to hit driver (except hole #1) and you are constantly questioning where to hit the ball. The funny part is that ALL (literally all, with no exceptions) of the golfers that I have talked to have the same opinion of this course which is why it is so curious that this place gets such good reviews here. It is a ridiculous layout but it is pretty and in great shape.

You'll love it or you'll hate it...if you hate it you are an idiot.
It took me way too long to write this review. Played here in early May with my dad/brother-in-laws...It was the first time for all of us and we all loved it.
I heard going in that it is a course the takes some strategy and targeted shots so I was prepared for that. Definitely didn't use the driver as much as other courses I have played. It can make for a long round if you aren't using a range finder.
The course truly reminded me of up-north golf. A lot of undulation in the fairways. Every hole is different and offers a great challenge. I also liked how each hole has a name.
We were very fortunate to have awesome weather and a poor weather forecast, so the course wasn't packed. Made for a great pace of play (18 holes in about 4 hours, despite my errant shots).
I won't go hole-by-hole and describe them. This course is awesome. Course conditions from tee boxes to greens were fantastic. You need to play here/ Be prepared to have to think and make some targeted shots. I will be back to play again, and so will you.
