Experience picturesque Lake Doster Golf Club, home of the "Little Monster," Michigan's toughest par-3. Laid out over 180 acres of rolling and wooded terrain reminiscent of courses in northern Michigan. This deceivingly difficult, championship 18-hole course, rated one of Michigan's top 25, combines undulating greens and watered fairways for a true test of golf.

Gourgeous golf course and tough as nails. If your not a 2 or 3 handicap you should play the front tees. October 11, 2013
9 beautiful holes followed by 9 very average holes The first nine holes on the course are great, and the little monster really is a fun little hole. The second nine is very average with lots of homes on it, it also is not in as good of shape as the front. Overall a fine course for the price.! October 6, 2013
The couse was angry we booked through GolfNow......duh... We arrived after a rain. There were 6 cars in the parking lot. We asked if we could start earlier than our tee time and were told, "No, we totally dislike GolfNow and you have to wait until your time." That would have made sense if they were full, but we stood around looking at each other waiting until our time. Really dumb of the course personnel. No one was there. We left with a very bitter taste of how customer service has gone SO BAD. Yes, those were the rules....but dumb, just dumb. No, I will not return there and will not recommend. Not your fault GolfNow....the fault of course personnel that could care less about making the customer's experience good. October 6, 2013
Always enjoy playing this course. Great layout that doesn't make you feel like you're just playing the same hole over & over (lots of hole variety). Wife & I played on a Fri afternoon and had an enjoyable time. It rained in the morning, so some soggy areas on the course. Greens were slower than normal due to the rain, but very receptive to shots. Sparse grass on tee boxes would be my only complaint about this course. October 5, 2013
development course but interesting There are some interesting & fun holes on this hidden gem. A little off the beaten path but for the $$$ a great deal. Course was in OK shape. The " Tiny Monster " hole is fun. You'll probably hit more than one ball. It's a pretty scenic course for being in a development. September 17, 2013
The course layout is very inspired greens are very difficult to putt Pin placements were the most difficult places on fast and rolling greens. Greens are difficult to read. Downhill slopes are not always downhill. The difficult pin placements must have contributed to slower play. Tee boxes were very worn and chewed up with weeds and crabgrass. Driving range had three target greens. The practice tee was in better shape than most of the tees on the course. Distances to the target greens or areas of the practice range were not marked. Pro shop staff was very friendly and accommodating. September 4, 2013
tough track - will test your skills This is not a course for beginners. It is carved out of a hilly wooded area and it is one of the toughest tracks I have played. If you want a challenging course then is one is for you. The tee boxes were not watered and extremely difficult to get a tee into the ground. The greens when we played were fast, but also a bit bumpy, there were several people who played before us that did not bother to fix their pitch marks. There are not very many level lies on several holes especially if you are not playing from the short grass. I am a 15 handicap and I struggled to keep it under 100. You will use every club in your bag at least twice during the course of play on this monster. September 3, 2013
Nice course to play for all skill levels, lacking customer service Nice course to play for all skill levels, lacking customer service September 3, 2013
