  1. Last week
  2. I found 2 aerial photos of my course circa 1980's. The course was still a muni, but it was an 18-hole par 66 course called Sham-Na-Pum. It also had a driving range and a 9-hole par 3 course. In the first pic you can see the parking lot and clubhouse at the far left and the city sewage treatment plant next to the course in the bottom right corner. The street next to the course, and the "Rose Bowl" as the treatment plant was called, is the main street into town. The second pic shows the south end of the course next to I-182. The course was torn up in 1996-1997, the sewage treatment plant was moved to the other side of the freeway, and Columbia Point was developed: "Hey, I bet they'd love a great shopping mall right here... condos over there... plenty of parking!" This is what it looked like about 15 years ago. Basically, all of the brown, vacant land is now shopping center, condos, hotels, and restaurants. The good thing is that other than a few condos on the #3 and #4 tee boxes and office buildings on #13 there are no buildings along the fairways.

    Eagle Glenn

    Ray Hearn and Jerry Matthews replicated a little corner of Scotland right here in mid-Michigan. Eagle Glen is known throughout the state of Michigan for its beautiful appearance year-to-year maintained by Superintendent James Halstead and staff. The course consists of large, quick, undulating greens that always roll true, well manicured bent grass tees and fairways, environmentally protected natural wetlands, 73 bunkers and hundreds of mounds, all of which makes Eagle Glen a true hidden gem. Tucked away in Farwell and conveniently close to US-27, US-10 and M-115, Eagle Glen is a must play on your next northern Michigan

    Pohlcat

    PohlCat, located in the heart of Michigan, is a championship-style course played over, and around, the scenic 100-foot wide Chippewa River. The course was designed by former PGA Tour pro, and Mt. Pleasant native, Dan Pohl. There are plenty of similarities between the great PGA Tour courses Dan played and the tough, but fair, design of PohlCat. This design offers players a unique golfing experience by combining beautiful northern Michigan scenery with a links-style feel.

    Hidden Oaks Golf Course

    Cut out of the woods along the Pine River in St. Louis, Michigan, Hidden Oaks Golf Course brings golfers the playability of an Upper Peninsula golf course in the “Middle of the Mitten.” Originally designed by the father and son duo of Bruce and Jerry Matthews in 1970 as a nine-hole course called Edgewood Hills, Hidden Oak became a complete 18-hole track after Jerry Matthews designed the additional nine holes in 1999

    Tetherow

    Stunning and beautiful. Greens will make you want to change sports.
  12. Very nice course, challenging, but fair. The course was in excellent condition when I was there (8/7/2019)
  13. Hell of a course, designed by Stanley Thompson. Was here for 8 months and joined on a whim, as it was close to work. Very Challenging and oh so fun to play. Will remember this course for a long time, as i made some friends in a new place, and whittled my index down to a 12 from 23. Nothing but fond memories of this place. Thanks for the good times, Glendale!
  14. The front 9 is a lot of back and forth with the holes running parallel to each other. The one nice thing about this, is it makes the course very open. I like using this course if I'm working on my swing because I'm not out of the hole on a bad shot. I just might be in the wrong fairway. The course has a tendency to have sprinkler issues. There will be times when it hasn't rained in a month, but the course is flooded. The course is currently undergoing some major renovations right now. The one main upgrade that they did was to put in a Golf Channel Academy instead of a driving range. This is basically hitting off a mat into a net. The thing that bothers me about this, is they did not put a top over the net. This means you can't hit anything lower than an 8i into the net otherwise it will go over it. If you go over the net, the parking lot is right on the other side. I'm hoping that a later improvement is to add an actual range and short game area, or at least put a top on the net to allow you to warm up with your wedges.
  15. With 27 holes, this place has multiple options for how you want to play 18. One thing I love about this course is the driving range. It is an all grass driving range that is always in perfect condition. This course holes multiple outings for the surrounding communities that are always a lot of fun. The staff is amazing!
  16. If you're looking for a challenge, then this is the course for you! With over 130+ bunkers and thick rough, this course can be a challenge. If you play what the course gives you, then there are multiple opportunities to go low. The course is always in great shape and the greens are some of the purest in the area. Every Tuesday and Thursday nights on the week of major tournaments, they hold a Women's and Men's night. For the Men's night, it's $35 for 9 holes, a cart, range balls, and dinner after. The 9 holes are set up for a 2-man team event. Depending on the major, it can range anywhere from alternate shot to best ball with prizes best score, longest drive, and closest to the pin. The place is a great place to test your skills!!

    This is a great course to work on your iron play. You'll only need your driver on a few holes. A beautiful course in great shape and perfect to work on your irons.

    This one is a long hitters course, but, along with the Dream, both are a must play when in this area.

  • 121 Range Before the Round?

    1. 1. Do You Feel Hitting the Range Before Your Round is Essential


      • Absolutely--I won't play well if I don't and dread the round.
      • Definitely Prefer to Hit It--For Getting Loose and Seeing What My Swing is For the Day.
      • Doesn't Really Matter- I Can Take it OR Leave It
      • Heck No....It Wont Do Any Good. I Don't Want to Waste Any Possible Good Shots Out There.
      • The Course Doesn't Have a Range.
