    This course is truly challenging. Arnie loved water and natural settings, Jack loved sand, and there's a lot of it. Chose you club wisely so as to avoid the sand traps and keep it out of the water. Beautiful course, be sure to take time to enjoy the round.

    An amazing course. Very challenging and in excellent condition. Not far from Mt. Pleasant MI, which has a casino and Central Michigan University. A Must Play!!!

    Wild Bluff Golf Course

    Some of the views on this course are stunning. With Lake Superior in the back ground this is a "must play" if your anywhere in the U.P. of Michigan.
  6. Extremely nice facility. Beautiful course. Very Challenging. Staff is wonderful and helpful.
  7. Absolutely beautiful course. I played it on 11/7/2019 and it was in awesome shape. All the employees were very courteous and helpful. If you're in the Phoenix area put this on your definitely play list.

    Palm Vally Goodyear, Arizona

    A challenge for me, an older golfer with some physical limitations. It has some narrower fairways and a lot of dirt ares in place of rough. Amenities are fairly good and the course is kept up fairly well.. However, when the hotter weather hits, afternoons are often quite stressful.

  11. 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.

    I think this is Mammoth #6, taken from the 9th tee on Sand Valley (played Mammoth later in the day).

    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

    Stunning and beautiful. Greens will make you want to change sports.
  20. Very nice course, challenging, but fair. The course was in excellent condition when I was there (8/7/2019)
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
