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.

Timber Trace is a favorite of mine. I've played Inkster Valley may times and like many of the holes but a few are pretty weird (11) due to wetlands.

I live in SE Mi. I'm pretty lucky as I've got several great courses in my backyard. Can't believe I haven't seen The Orchards on this list yet...great course. I enjoy all of the local courses in the immediate area The Orchards,Greystone, and since the new management took over Glacier Club is in top notch shape, and very, very reasonably priced. As far as destination golf...I've played a ton...
I see Gull Lake mentioned above, I put together a large outing every year on the west side...and these people are top notch. Never met a more accommodating place.

I'll list some of my favorites.
The Dream and Nightmare(BYOB goes a long way in our group)
Red hawk in Tawas
The Boyne courses, although way overpriced
Island Hills
The Gailes is a great change of pace, and you can't beat their package deals.
Fountains and Traditions at Garland
Little traverse bay for its views

I've played Eagle Eye at Hawk Hollow in Lansing, MI.
Great course and facility.

Also, I played Quail Ridge in Grand Rapids. Another nice course.

I am in West Michigan so I am biased to some over here. Pere Marquette Trail in Baldwin is real nice. Towards the Lake Old Channel Tail in Montague is real nice. Benona Shores by Silver Lake is my favorite. It is a short course, par 60, but is real pretty and fun.
