Forest Dunes Golf Club
This is one of those Michigan "bucket list" courses to play and was not disappointed with the experience. Although greens had recently been aerated, condition of course was exceptional. Because of some weather concerns, staff made accommodations to get our round in earlier than original tee time. If you like links style design, you must make time to play this track.

Not Bucket List Worthy
They advertise this as Bucket List a Golf, but it comes up short in many ways. The course itself is a nice layout, in great shape, and greens are as fast as most any you'll play. However, the course lacks the elevation changes that one anticipates in N MI golf courses. It is very flat and lacks character that you experience on courses within an hour of this track. It has lots of sand and a well manicured course, but not worthy of all the acclaim. In addition, the staff is unfriendly, food is average, and they stuck us behind an outing that took almost 6 hours. Tried to ask for a rain check prior to teeing off behind the scramble, but they were not accommodating. Nice course & facilities in the middle of nowhere, but short on making guests feel welcomed and certainly not worthy of bucket list status. There are a lot of fun courses to play that are easier to get to, and more enjoyable. Oh, and if you do go, bring your bug spray!

A fabulous experience
With the help of GolfNow, this marvelous course was affordable. The only negative was the lack of a course marshal to aid with playing through slower groups.

Excellent course, perfect conditions, pace of play was great until Saturday morning got a little slow . Starters ( bills) were very friendly. Only suggestion would be maybe a few other items for non golfers who come with (pool) etc. excellent place with future plans to be even better!

IMO, this course lives up to the hype. I have not played Arcadia Bluffs, I have played most of the other top courses in lower peninsula, and this was the best of them. I was most impressed with the staff though. We were the last tee time of the day. Massive storm blew through in the afternoon, pulling everyone off the course and shutting down computer systems. We teed off about 45 minutes late and thought there was no way we were going to get the round done. We even played the 19th hole (in the dark but still). You could hardly tell that the course had been rained on, let alone the massive downpour. The staff was very good about keeping people on pace and getting groups through the round. We'll be back, but with an earlier tee time.

Forest Dunes Insanity
From how prestine the course is to a great layout, our whole day consisted of nothing but good things. The greens roll very true and even the fairways allow the ball to run. I definitley look forward to playing it again. However, I could go without the nats... They could be overwhelming at times.

The design and layout of the holes were picturesque!
I'm already looking forward to going back having just played it for the first time. It is truly a gem!!!

Best course I've played.
Impeccable conditions on a fabulous track of land in the middle of nowhere. What more could you ask for. The staff are there only to make sure you have a great round.
