About Lynx Golf Course

Lynx Golf Course, previously named The Lynx Of Allegan, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Otsego, Michigan.

The Lynx Golf Course first opened for play in 1998. The course was designed by Charlie Scott & Jon Scott.

Both Nines start and end at the highest elevation levels on the course roughly 90 feet above the Kalamazoo River Valley. Well-conditioned greens and strategically placed bunkers add to the fun for a challenging round of golf.

#1 is a short 321-yard, Par 4 into a blind green. Big hitters can go for the green at the base of the hill but must pay close attention to the bunker in front of the green as well as the area behind the green to avoid going out of bounds. Before leaving the green, take a look behind you and you will notice the slopes of Bittersweet Ski Resort.

# 5 is an uphill 528-yard, Par 5 to an elevated green that is surrounded by bunkers.

#9 is a short uphill 353-yard par-4 dogleg left with a well-positioned bunker at the bend of the fairway.

The Back Nine begins with one of the Lynx Signature Holes, a 411-yard, Par 4 with a 90-foot elevation drop and more outstanding tree top views.

# 14 is the second signature hole, a 171-yard, Par 3 with an elevated tee box looking down at the Kalamazoo River running along the backside of the green.

# 15 is a long 566-yard, Par 5 running alongside the Kalamazoo River.

# 16 is an uphill 361-yard, Par 4 protected by pine trees and bunkers near the green.

#18 is an uphill, 347-yard, Par 4 to an elevated green providing many more tree top views along with beautiful views of the glass-walled clubhouse.

The Lynx Golf Course is a par-72 layout that plays to 6,471 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 72.1 with a slope rating of 141.

This is a tuff course to give a accurate rating without sounding, counter-addictive. The layout is unbelievable in its rolling terrain, tree lined fairways and various blind shots. But having weeds growing on the tee boxes....is UN-excusable. The heavy rains last night left soggy conditions but the fairways were firm enough for carts to travel almost anywhere. Loved the elevation changes and the many well placed sand trap in the fairways and greens alike. Playing from Blues 6,452yds / 71.3 / 139 to the Reds 4,436yds / 66.3 / 116 this Par 72 layout has something for everyone. The fairways were cut short and with the soggy turf.....was a great challenge for my son Barry and myself. Paying $45 was a good price for this great layout with less than average conditions, at this time of year. I shot 43/41 w/31 putts and Barry had 44/39 w/ 32 putts as he was hitting the narrow fairways with more regularity than the Old Man. Both of us having a Par 5 on #5 Hole / 526yds and Birdie putts on #15 561yd Par 5 hole (Barry got his) were highlights of a great afternoon on the Links. Hope the weeds disappear on my next visit and Driver gets a little more accurate. Worth putting on your places to play if your in this area.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
