Chief at Sky Lodge Golf Course, The -- Bring it on!
Review by: Golfer Jim The Chief is perhaps the most challenging course I have played in northern Michigan. While it is a toughy, especially from the tips, it brings out a carnal instinct in me to play it again because I know that with my new knowledge I can improve my score. The course was in great shape with its bent tees, greens and fairways nicely manicured. The pro indicated that they just lowered the length of the rough, which made a great improvement. Service was also great in the shop. Leave your driver at home and have some fun.

Oak Ridge Golf Club -- Could Use Some Help
Review by: Big Hitter The course has suffered in the past few years from neglect in up keep. Bunkers are stoney and can cause damage to clubs. Fairways need better drainage that occasionally gets addressed. Can become very wet and muddy with a days rain. Any additional time of rain and the place becomes almost useless to cart travel. Watch out on the par 5's 1 & 18. These cuddle up to a small driving range that can cause problems with your errant drives if you are playing the course or those from the range if you are in the fairway. Range balls often litter both fairways during evening play. Course is challenging and fun when the conditions are good. The extras (beverage cart, food, 19th hole) could be very good, but I have often found them to be not available at times. Half-way house has been abandoned that use to provide beverages and light snacks. Seems like this would provide possibilities during league and busy weekends. Water drinking fountains on course have been very nice addition.
