The Leelanau Club At Bahles Farms
We visited this course as a warm up in advance of playing The Bear at Grand Traverse Resort, but it is more than a warm up and is an excellent course in its own right. I actually found it to be tougher than The Bear due to slightly narrower fairways lined by trees so errant drives to punished. Greens are in excellent shape. Well worth making the drive to play. Very close to awarding it 5 stars.

4some played9 together and 3some then went on to 18. Course is beautiful, meticulously landscaped. Quite challenging. Would love to play there again on our next visit to Northern Mich. from Colorado.

Beautiful, friendly place to golf
We really enjoy golfing at Bahle Farms. The setting is pristine with beautiful rolling fairways cut into the surrounding cherry farms. A real enjoyable and memorable experience.

Played on Memorial Day Sunday, was a single but because of the slow play grouped with a twosome. Driving range was mats only and practice green was small. No ranger on the course so the group that was 2 in front of us was taking their time. Finally called clubhouse on 13. Took over an hour to play 10-12. Clubhouse did send someone out and got the group moving. Played 14-18 in an hour. There was a beverage cart, but only seen her one time which was on number 8
The course has some spectacular views, and I do recommend playing here. Even at full price it is worth the value. Some fairways need some TLC, and the greens were a bit slow, but it was a good test of golf. The cherry trees were in blossom and provided some excellent scenery, especially 14 with the fairway cut between the orchard.

ONE OF THE BEST IN TRAVERSE CITY
The course was in good shape considering the weather in the previous weeks. The only criticism was the fairways needed mowing. We always enjoy playing this course and whole heartedly give it our recommendation.

Course well taken care of -- good fall golf.
Good golf course and great fall golf. Leaves blown from greens and fareways. Greens plugged but filled in with sand.
