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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't tell them you used Golf Now. Used Golf Now and received an excellent rate for golf and cart for 18 holes. Paid online when the reservation was made. Arrived at the golf course, (Lake Doster, Kalamazoo, mi.) and informed them that we had paid online via Golf They seemed like they could care less, put us off on the back nine, they had an outing on the front. We completed our front nine only to see two foursomes of ladies and a 2 some some outing on the front nine. They could care less, no "sorry", no nothing. Nice place...sic. Course isn't that bad, other players where very friendly. Just expect to be dissed if they know you saved money via Golf Now. October 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lake Doster I have played this course on and off since the early 1980's. Quality dropped a few years ago, but the course has really improved the last couple of year and is in tip top shape again. The greens have always been the highlight. They are large, ungulating and very true. The last four holes make for a very tough finish. Glad to see the course back to original form. September 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lost in the woods I've played this course off and on for the last 15 years. The course is never in perfectly manicured condition, however the price is always right. The layout is interesting having the feel of an "up North" course . There are elevation changes, woods, wetlands and water hazards.. Over the years the trees have begun to overgrow some of the fairways and make a couple of the holes sort of unfair. The greens have a lot of pitch to them and make putting quite a challenge. The only saving grace is that they are not particularly fast. I always enjoy playing Lake Doster. But just not too often. August 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Time Played on my way to staying at the Yarrow Golf Resort. Weather was difficult with wind and some rain but the course was in good shape and we breezed through the round in about three hours and 15 minutes. I played it once before which helped. I recommend the course. August 21, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent coarse The layout of the coarse is nice and somewhat challenging but the condition is pretty chopped up! The tee boxes were hard as a brick yet the greens were soaking wet? A lot of in-coarse OB and hazard areas. August 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bring some extra... Great course!! Beautiful greens and Awesome views!! Bring extra balls because the views are very deceiving, par 3's are insane! Par 5's looks like miles but your able to get there in 2.... Staff was friendly bought several items from the pro shop, bought some stylish Puma Socks that were very comfortable and bought a Cleveland Hat that wasn't anywhere near what I thought I'd have to pay at a Pro Shop vs Dicks or Dunham's or online. They have a pretty good selection of items. Had fun! Bring some extra Sleeves, your balls magically disappear here! August 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Course ok condition. Course was average condition, but compared to other courses we played recently in southern Michigan it was lower quality. Greens were grainy - not sure what kind of grass. Great value for price we paid and the pro shop staff was extremely friendly and helpful. August 2, 2015
