Harbor Shores is a top 5 course in Michigan.

I had high expectations for Greywalls and thoroughly enjoyed it...great shape and incredible views with lots of elevation changes. However from a golf standpoint I thought TimberStone had more of a wow factor. Only negative was the 4 greens that were in really bad condition.

 

Sweetgrass was nice too but definitely a distant third to the others.

Well, Dead Thread Revival Time.

 

I've played most of the muni courses in the Mid-Michigan area. My favorite would be The Timbers in Frankenmuth, MI.

 

When we hit the cabin Up North, Black Forest/Wilderness Valley is 2 mins up the road. I've even snowmobiled by that course.

 

I'm not a fan of high dollars rates so if its ~$45 or lower, I'll most likely play it.

I haven't played The Timbers but have always enjoyed the nearby Fortress. Black Forest is great. Designed by Tom Doak and very tough.

Have played Oakland Hills and TPC Michigan.  They weren't too bad.  Want to try Orchard Lake this summer.

Interesting verbiage. Not too bad? I've walked both and of course Oakland Hills is world class. I am not as impressed with TPC of Michigan due to the required use of wetlands by Nicklaus during the design. Not a great property. I've heard great things about the recent restoration of Orchard Lake CC.
