Hawk's Eye is a tremendous value in NW Michigan. Always in great condition, especially this year with all the rain we've had. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Pace of play is never an issue. Highly recommend playing this course if you get the chance!

We made the turn during this 97 degree heat. We went into the snack bar area to get a drink and a quick sandwich. The bar person said that he did not think he could service us because we would lose our spot on the course. He went to check with the pro shop and they insisted that we go to the on course snack bar. We really just wanted to sit in the air conditioning and cool off. I gotta tell you that I have played hundreds of courses but NEVER have been turned away at the snack bar! I asked the pro shop person about this and he insisted that we could not have got a spot back on the golf course. We had NO ONE behind us all day! And even if we did, there was so few golfers in this heat, that there should not have been a problem continuing our round. I brought 5 other people with me. I am greatly disappointed that they would worry more about the pace of play then our health and safety!

I booked a stay and play through Hawk's Eye for a group of 8. The entire process could not have been easier. Nick was great to work with from beginning to end.

We played Hawk's Eye, The Legend, and The Chief. Although our group enjoyed all 3, we agreed that Hawk's Eye was clearly the best. The layout is great and peaceful. We had rain off and on all weekend and the course was in excellent shape. If you are planning a golf trip to Bellaire, do not miss Hawk's Eye!

Hawk's Eye is a must-play when visiting Bellaire and Shanty Creek. It has its share of tough holes but nothing that would scare off golfers of any level of skill. The staff was super friendly, and it's so cool to sit out on the big deck watching golfers come up the holes in front of you.
