This very scenic and challenging course is set in the wilderness and uses the natural topography of Michigan as its layout. It is recommended to use a riding cart because of its rolling and hilly terrain, but walking is allowed for those who are up for it. The natural marshlands and several ponds, as well as the numerous sand bunkers, give the course its challenging quality.
Hole #3, a 500-yard, par 5, is nicknamed "The Challenger," because of those who may want to cut 180 yards across a large pond to a peninsula-shaped green that is hidden.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,364 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 4,454 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 13, a par-5 that plays to 515 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 14, a par-3 that plays to 171 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 6, a 408 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 14, a 171 yard par-3.
