Nice course, terrible customer service
The course was in overall good shape and played well. I very much enjoyed the layout. When checking in for our tee time, we were barked at by the grumpy man in the club house that we would be delayed teeing off by at least 30 minutes. There was an outing that was running way over and they double-booked tee times. Oh well, mistakes happen, but this guy was about the most unpleasant and abrasive person I've ever met and to imagine it's his job to interact with customers...FAIL.
The pace of play was awful and completely unmonitored. We were stuck behind a couple of slow groups that we jumped 2 holes ahead of at the turn (took us almost 3 hours to play the first 9). By the time we finished the back, we didn't even go back to play the 2 we skipped. Did not see a single ranger on the course.
The pace of play and unfriendliness and unprofessional staff killed the experience. I wish it were different because the course itself is nice and is probably a completely different experience during a weekday or slower time.

Nice course, terrible experience
The course itself is nice, plays well and I would recommend it; however if you don't like to wait around I wouldn't. We arrived, checked in and were promptly told that we would be delayed at least 30-45 minutes. No weather delay, instead an outing was running behind and someone double-booked tee times. The old, grumpy man working was rude and unpleasant. He could have made the the experience better with an attempt at customer service but didn't have a clue. The pace of play on the course was not monitored and even with skipping 2 holes we played a 6-hour round. With competent staff, this course has potential.

This course is out in the middle of no where but is worth the drive if you have never played it. The holes are challenging yet scenic with towering pines giving it a northern Michigan feel. Top 5 course in this area without a doubt.

Great track: Tough but fair!
My first time on this course. Beautiful layout! You will not want to walk as there is a loop on the back 9 that takes you out around a lake - Lake Wallaby. It's 5-6 minutes each way out/in but it's beautiful!
There are many sand trap surrounded greens so you need to hit high shots on - no roll-ups for the most part! Shot an 81 which is just 2 shots above my average as i was able to avoid most bunkers. Staff and food were great!

Enjoyed the round despite playing behind a couple of slow foursomes. The course layout and condition were very nice and most importantly had no hidden hazards or forced carries. I will surely go back and hopefully the players ahead aren't deliberate in their pace!
