I am currently without a home course. I moved from Alabama to Michigan last year and I've just started playing again this year. I've played three courses in Michigan so far this year: The Jewel of Grand Blanc, Royal Oak Golf Club, and Southmoor Country Club in Flint. The Royal Oak course isn't much of a challenge. I played 18 holes (its a nine hole course) so I had the oppurtunity to play each hole twice. On the par 3, 165 yard, fifth hole, I ended up getting my first hole in one. Overall, I shot a 78 (which is the best round of my life). Southmoor is a little more interesting. Its off of Dort Highway in a rougher area than the ROGC. However, its very much a links style course and I've enjoyed playing it. My parents live roughly five miles away and I am thinking of making it my home course. Its a nice, cheap, price for a college student, and overall, the course is beautiful. I would highly recommend it.
Before moving to Michigan, I lived in Montevallo, Alabama. The Montevallo golf course is where I began to learn to play the game. I loved the links at Montevallo. I even paid for a membership to the club. While the club house is not much to look at (just a trailer) but the course is in the best definition a links course. I don't know who the architect of the course is, but I suspect that most of the work was rather simple as the 13th 195 yard par 3 is a natural island sitting in front of a waterfall. Most of all, its beautiful during the autumn and the winter. Which is the best feature of the course. Its very hilly and sometimes its difficult to even reach the green in 4 but its worth anyone's time to play. There are bigger and richer courses in the Metro Birmingham area of Alabama, but none as close to a state of true nature as the links at Montevallo.
