I played thru ezlinks and had an additional discount so the price was very good but not typical. Course exceeded my expectations. Excellent layout with a nice variety of holes. A good challenge but I didn't feel beat up after the round either. Would highly recommend George W Dunne and look forward to playing there again in the future and I live about 25-30 miles away.

I had mixed feelings about this course.Russ, our starter, was great. He got us out early,explained many things about the course, and even stopped to chat about the course after 9. Mike, in the pro shop had a great sense of humor upon checking us in. A good staff always makes the round more enjoyable. The fairways were generous, the greens large and spectacular, very scenic with wildlife,and I'd probably have to go to Lake Michigan to see more sand than this course had. I think the reason I had mixed feelings was the pace. Signs in the pro shop indicated 4 to 6 hours to play depending on the time of day and day of the week. We got around in 4 3/4 hours although the flow seemed reasonable. I think this is one of Ken Killian's bst designed courses I've played. Our group rated this course an 8 1/2 out of 10 and will definitely play again in the future.
