Enjoyed playing there!
Really felt welcomed by the 'front desk" guy.
Course was in good shape. Particularly impressed by condition of the greens (not PGA shape, but really good public course shape).
Play was a bit slowed, but that was because of a twosome with one fella who was playing for his first time - ever! Found that out when his playing partner apologized at the turn (when they had stopped). And, we were even a twosome behind but still he was at the club saying "sorry". Those kind of people in the area, I believe.
Admittedly, too, a heavy rainstorm had passed through the area the night before. While there was a "bunch" of standing water in the middle of several fairways, they still allowed carting. Do believe they know the folks in the area will recognize those conditions quickly and drive carts appropriately. Again, in my opinion, a reflection of their regular clientele.
Bottom line, a very enjoyable experience.

Challenging long course with fast greens
This was a fun course to play that challenged you with every shot and made you use all the clubs in your bag.

Very FUN course, with challenges and opportunities for Birdies.
Staff is super friendly, we visited with The Coach for over an hour and he gave us great hints of where to play on our trip, what to see. Then made sure to pass along some local knowledge of the Oceana course that was a great help.
This is not a Jack N. type of course but if you want to have fun if your a 7 handicap and your wife is a 20 something, it offers abundant fun and challenges. We had a blast and felt like we were right at home. We are from Texas, but we will be back to MI and the Oceana course!

great course for the price
The course was in great shape. Very short but the greens were beautiful. Some of them were a little unfair, there were greens that were impossible to keep your ball on the green when you putted. I had my ball roll 30-40 feet on a 10 foot putt more than once.

Course is more challenging than it looks
We have played this course many times and absolutely love it. The staff is very accommodating and always friendly. We keep thinking the more we play, the more we should get to know the greens but they always fool us.

Was able to play 18 w/ cart for $11 on a Saturday.
Course is always in nice shape. Greens are well-maintained, quick and add a nice challenge to the course. Front nine is much easier to score than the back, which is long -- three par fives.
You can't go work playing here if you're in the area. If your hungry or thirsty for an adult beverage after your round, don't miss the Brown Bear in downtown Shelby.

The course is open with rolling greens and some difficult pin placements. Greens are quick and well maintained. A very good value.
