Mid-Channel Golf Course -- Great full size starter course!
Review by: Jim Thomas I have played here many times but I especially appreciated this course for a few reasons. First, There are no difficult lies, since it is located on an Harsens Island (South of Algonac- $6 dollar ferry fee), the landscape is rather flat which brings me to my second reason for rating it higher than normal. I have 3 teenage boys who are just starting to play. We already had played many executive courses but need somewhere for them to get the feel for a full size course. This is it! The rough is unforgiving, but only 1/2 of the holes are bordered by woods, so if you have a bad slice either compensate or bring many shag balls. However the other fairways are very expansive and open. There are a good number of challenging shots which also makes the lack of terrain OK. Some of the greens are nestled within the woods, where there is only one alley in and one alley out, very interesting. My last reason is that the course generally has a moderate amount of traffic which is also very helpful when you have juniors that need to develop ' ready to play golf ' skills. I have yet to find someone pushing at our back, wondering when you are going to get one in the head, and since it is a full size course with challenges, I have never been on the heels of anyone. If there is any critique, I would say that the bunkers are not in the best shape, but we use rule 28 for that. Afterwards there is a quaint supper club that is casual and affordable.

Hudson Mills Metro Park -- I might change my mind on this one
Review by: Mike I just played this course upon hearing good things but was a little disappointed about what I found. Maybe it was all of the rain lately but the fairways where rather long and the greens were in just aweful shape. On the good side, the front nine is pretty open and with some decent size greens to shoot at. I really should have scored better on the front. The back nine has some pretty holes and plays tighter due to the back being cut more through the woods. One of the back nine's holes was all dug up by what looked like a fox so the landing area from about 210 to 270 yards from the back tee, both fairway and rough, gave you little to work with as far as your second shot. Did shoot better on the back though, go figure. All in all, I'll go back in June or July and give it another try and see if conditions have improved 'cause the layout is pretty nice.
