Joined a group of Golfers (16) from Muskeegon, MI that are playing five (5) Boyne Highlands courses in three (3) days. This Crooked Tree track had the trickest greens to figure out and maybe that was because of the first time playing in this hilly area. I would suggest to purchase one (1) Yardage Book for each foursome so yardages to hiddend landing/hazards can be identified. With six (6) tees from 6,669 - 4,528yds you can pick and move to yardages/carries to fit your comfort zone. We chose the Orange (2,970/3,164yd) that played Par 35/36 and was a good choice. Execlent conditions awaited us from tee to greens today and the sand traps were fluffed like the beaches on Lake Michigan. Every green was undulating and well protected by non-typical shaped traps ready to grap those arrant shots. Just hitting the lighting fast greens in regulation didn't mean Par, putting was another adventure in itself. I was lucky to have someone always putting behind me during my 31 putt round that helped me shoot 38/40.....thanks Guys. No real hole I played today stands out as being memorable as I was focused on each shot....which is rare. This is one great course to be played if you find yourself in the Petoskey area for vacation.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Expensive and worth it
