Great golf course in great condition. Greens are fast and sometimes hard to read. We had to endure a lot of black flys. I think that was an unfortunate seasonal thing. Nice layout.

This is a fun course and has lots of up and down fairways. The fall is particularly nice with the beautiful tree lined fairways. The colors are so gorgeous. This course does have some water features, not too many. The fairways are in great shape and the bunkers are not difficult to get out of. The only gripe we had is that the pace of play was so excruciatingly slow.

We were looking for something different and weren't disappointed. Course has a old country club layout, back and forth, but really beautiful landscaping. The greens and fairway were in excellent shape. Greens were challenging and definitely challenging. My partner and I loved this course. Really different from what we were used to in the Traverse City area.

First time our group has played Gaylord golf club (note no longer country club or semi private). Course is parkland/country club style course. First 6 holes pretty open not overly difficult. Then you enter the wooded part of the course. If you in the area and looking for nice course to play (lacks the vistas of Treetops) when in the north book a time, you won;t be disappointed. We did not eat at the course but it did have decent beer and liquor selection. The only reason I have it 4 stars was little short on staffing in the dining area to get drink at the turn and one green has some issues the course is trying to recover. We played this as part of golf package the rate provided is per the web site.

Course was in excellent condition. I play a lot of courses in Northern Mich but first time at Gaylord CC and it was much better than I expected. Fairly straightforward layout, but still challenging enough. Greens were excellent. A very "playable" course. Had a good sandwich and excellent service at Grille afterwards. Will definitely go back!
