It's October, Saturday morning at 8:15 am, cloudy skies, no wind, 36 degrees with no frost, great day for golfing in Michigan.
This layout is a nice mix of tree-lined fairways (Front 9, 2,972yd, Par 34) and open Links (Back 9, 3,428yd, Par36) with nine (9) doglegs to throw into this lush, well-maintained layout. All of the tee boxes show the desired landing areas with no real fairway traps coming into play from the Blue (6,400yd / 70.9 / 133) tee box, but the Whites (6,035yd / 69.1 / 124) could be different.
The #6 Par 3 at 265yds, tree-lined fairway, really tested your driver accuracy as I found myself 50yds short of the promise land but what the heck, it was worth the try.
The greens were rolling very good for having a heavy rain last night, but the cup placement was a bit of a surprise. They told me about a Halloween fun outing that was taking place at noon, and the cup would be in the worst possible locations, they weren't lying.
I got fortunate in hitting most greens in the front and putting up hill. #15 was way back center on the ridge that had my 3 putt bogie looking good from the side hill that I started from.
This is a very enjoyable layout that has the fairway separation far enough as to not inflect pain on other golfers. Found myself shooting 38/41 w/34putts on this "Trick or Treat" golfing layout that had may decorations (Bloody body under a lawnmower, Witch sitting on the #18 green) to keep you smiling as you make your way around this well kept, locally owned, friendly layout.
