Re: What are the best courses in Michigan.
Last weekend, I played a outing in the Jackson area.The Grande
, very nice, tough but fair course, fast greens. Highly recommended.
Sadly, Concord Hills
was in terrible shape but you can tell that this course in its day must have been fantastic. Greens were 20% baked mud, fairways are not defined, and its difficult to find a flat place to stand on the tee boxes. Over grown trees & vegetation make it hard to differentiate the course from a area left to return to nature. Lots of elevated tees and it played long without the fairways. So sad, I would really like the course if it weren't for the condition.Cascades
GC is a municipal and was in good shape. Front 9 is a newer with more elevation changes and the back is more traditional & flat. Low prices make it worthwhile. 2nd time I played it this year & it didn't disappoint.Lakeland Hills
is a shorter open course that was in excellent shape especially the greens, moderate speed that rolled true. Some challenging holes with a couple of long par 3s & 5s. Worth a visit.
