Played Sunday afternoon & had the course to ourselves. Reflections is a great course not your traditional layout. Each nine has 3 par 3's, 3 par 4's & 3 par 5's. Just a fun & beautiful course. If your in the area, it's a definite stop.

First time playing here and it was outstanding. Perfect shape.. very challenging holes. My only problem with some holes I would have a perfect drive but the pin placements made it almost unreachable at times.

It wad beautiful especially the first couple holes were very pretty. The front nine was my favorite.

This course was rather wet - mud on the ball constantly. Course design is diabolical - there is some mean holes Course definitely has some teeth - Greens are fairly fast and undulation is prevalent. Condition was very good. Rough length around the greens is severe. Minimal margin for error. The course plays too tough for the average player - it wasn't fun.

All Garland courses are in great shape and when we have anyone from out of town they always say WOW what a nice course. One big problem though is the bugs are very annoying. I hope you are addressing this issue.

Nice course, but sand traps were not well maintained. Pace of play was great because we were basically the only ones on the course. Great value through Golf Now but not worth full price. Maybe conditions were as they were because it was late in the season, but we expected Garland to be pristine.

Played Reflections after enjoying some time at the outdoor bar while we waited for someone who was running late. Very playable for all skill levels. Blue tees were the back tees and don't play super long, but long enough to use all clubs in bag and put some thought into your tee shots. Many strategically placed trees that force you to think about them before selecting a club. Some holes require a driver while some just a 4 iron to get into good position. Greens were in great shape. Many large greens. Course not marked with yardage too well. For sure is easier than the monarch, but still can be tough. Very enjoyable course to play. A few breather holes make it fun to play.

Garland has some of the best courses in all of Michigan but I do have a few concerns. They have the worse nat issue. There are millions of nats flying all around your head the entire time and they are on every course. Another thing, we never saw a beer cart except right after the first hole. Finally, we paid $41on golf now but the normal rate was something like $88 per person. The greens fees are ridiculous. There is no one out there playing. I don't understand some of these courses that charge top dollar and have no players. This is a $50 course. I would never play any of the courses here for more than $50. I understood now why there is no one at the resort. It is a golf ghost town.

I golfed the reflections course and was amazed at the beauty and the condition of the course. Ive golfed 9 different courses so far since April and none of them are as well kept as Garland. The rolling hardwood fairways and lush green grass and the best looking and playing greens ive ever been on make this a must play top ten. If you don't golf this course you are truly missing out on one of Michigan's must beautiful and challenging golf courses
