Detailed description of Saskatoon Golf Club

Saskatoon Golf Club is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in Alto, Michigan. The facility has four nine hole courses that are rotated in order to make different eighteen hole combinations. They are the Red Nine, The White Nine, The Blue Nine, and The Gold Nine. 

The course opened in the summer of 1964 with the original Red Course. The White Course opened in 1967, and the Blue Course in 1972 and 20 years later, in 1992, the links style Gold course was added.

The most demanding course is the Gold Course, with water and sand bunkers coming into play throughout the Scottish links-style terrain. The Red Course is short, but features narrow fairways, and water hazards come into play on four holes.  The easiest course is the White Course.  This course is short and has no water hazards.  The Blue Course is tight and not too long.  The terrain on all courses varies from flat to rolling, so you can expect some interesting lies.

My sons Jeremy & Barry decided to meet up here for our Fathers Day golf outing...Great Choice. They have quite a selection of loops you can play, practice area and plans to add another nine (9) holes in the near future. We paid $48 to play the Gold 3,331yd/Par 36 and Red 3,004yd/Par 35 (71.1 / 129 /Par 71) mix of woods, water, and open layout.

Starting out on a tight, tree-lined 395-yard dogleg right Par 4 will make the next holes look easier. #2 is a great 364-yard Par 4 dogleg right that has you driving 190yds across the water to a raised firm green. Your driving target is right of the first fairway bunker, leaving about 130yd 2nd shot. The next five (5) holes are straight forward narrow holes with #5 being a 552yd Par 5 having a 180yd carry off the tee box. #8 dogleg right 365 -yard Par 4 is fun with the 2nd shot to a water/sand protected island green. Having played three (3) dogleg rights, might as well end with a 379yd Par 4 having a 180yd carry off the tee.

The Back 9 is more rolling pine tree-lined fairways that have well-groomed sand traps protecting the firm smooth greens. #15, a downhill 214-yard Par 3 is surrounded by a marsh and landing short is not a bad spot. #16, a 254yd Par 4 is played to a hilltop hidden green, so play to a smart 2nd shot yardage. The #17 385yd Par 4 has your 2nd shot to a side hill located green that is tipped forward. So play 1-2 clubs more on the 2nd shot and stay below the cup at to avoid three (3) putts.

Even though this course is short on yardage, if you stray on your shots, troubles will find you. I ended up getting my Father Day present in the form of a 36/39 w/30putts and having my boys with me.....Priceless.

I am looking forward to returning and checking out the other layouts.

Would travel: 60-120 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
