Can confirm, fall golf in MI is real nice. Be prepared for layers in the morning but temps are usually beautiful by 2pm
Roll Call: Michigan (Classic Club Challenge - June 4th - The Mines - Grand Rapids, MI)
It’s supposed to be in the 60s here over the weekend, so definitely bring layers. I’ve never played Hawkshead but am a fan of the Ravines. They usually do a decent job keeping it up but I haven’t been there in the fall.
Pretty much the only time I play the Ravines is in the fall or spring so it isn’t $90 - it’s always in good condition, if maybe a bit wet in spots if it rained recently. Hawkshead, I’ve only played once in the spring and it was firm and in good shape then
I’ll second Stella’s. Great selection of whiskey’s and cheap beer. A rotating selection of good beers. And the best burgers in the US of A
Last chance yall! come play some golf in Cadillac tomorrow or try and win a sweet putter!
there are only 5 tickets sold for this putter so far, its basically stealin!
Hello Michigan people! More specifically - Detroit area refugees - I am going to be in town for work Oct 9-12 - have a free morning, early afternoon on Monday the 10th. Wondering if anyone might be keen to meet up and play, show me the Detroit golf scene?!
Greetings Mitten Staters, I’ll also be in the Detroit area for an overnight before heading up to Forest Dunes. I’ve snagged an 8:03 tee time at Washtenaw on Sunday 10/9 for just myself but the other 3 spots are still open. If anyone wants to join for a morning round, go snag a spot and let me know! Also looking to play Rackham on Wednesday morning 10/12 before I fly out. Lmk if you’re interested in joining for that. Really excited to get back to MI, think it might be the most underrated state in the country
FYI to the Michiganders and Detroiters…
I too will be invading the D on 10/10 for a round with @Bunk.
Rackham? Hollow? Trace?
Where should we prioritize, and who wants in?
Do not play pine trace. Conditions continue to be abysmal and they’re charging full freight.
I’m playing in another event so I wouldn’t be able to join, but here’s how I would rate the Metro Detroit courses:
University of Michigan
Links of Novi
Lakes of Taylor
Rackham (less quality but has the original Ross back 9 and NLU connection)
Haven’t played but heard good things:
Hope that helps!
Just personal preference but I’d skip Greystone all together. It’s a lot of target golf with next to no strategy. It’s too hard. Sure, some pretty holes but it’s all looks IMO.
100% co-sign this. It’s like the course you want to play when you first get into golf (which is what i did) and then when you learn more about the game and courses, it’s pretty meh for me. would not go back, unless backed into a corner.
Washtenaw is a great choice. Little further south to Monroe CC is great too. Ross design that’s been fucked with but you can still see it. Conditions are pretty solid too.
I posted a golf trip question in the thread above. Hoping some of you guys that have played Arcadia and Forest Dunes can help me out! Thanks!
I got you boss. HMU if you have other questions.
the drive from Forest Dunes to Arcadia was much further than i thought. much further. i’ve lived here pretty much my whole life and i drastically underestiamted it.
100 miles and you can’t take any major highways…
Hope to see some of you there! It’s going to be a really unique and fun day of golf.
Anyone live in Lansing? Heard Eagle Eye is good? looking for Recs
