Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

Cedar Chase Golf Club -- Cedar Chase, worthy of a second look
Review by: Greg Rogers Despite some poorly manicured bunkers, Cedar Chase is a good course, with plenty of length for the long hitters, and forgiveness with short tees that accomodate the leagues and seniors. Beautiful layout, no development, (no condos, houses, etc.)and plenty of woods to make you feel like your the only group there (we teed off at noon, played 18 in 3 1/2 hrs, saw nobody till the 18th). It seems like it should get more play, since the price is very right. Some of the holes are tight (like 11, and 12) and some are long (17 is a par 3, 206 from the blues). But you'll use all of your clubs, and the greens are fair and improving yearly, and the're pretty good now, albeit slow. Can't beat the price for the golf.
