Course is always kept up well. The rough a bit too much, but I attribute that to all the rain. Nice all around course.

Ignoring the wet conditions that every course had to endure, this layout forces you to be club conscious as fairways end 3 Wood and force you to carry to 270 to the next one. Just enough creeks, fairway bunkers and greenside bunkers, but large enough greens to compensate. Greens were solid! I would love to see how this course plays out when dry/prime summer. Tee-off Ranger was very friendly and I will assuredly return to this course. They have a cart girl on Sundays in April! First one so far this year I've had. She is very pleasant. Also they have "Player Assistance" crew acting as part light maintenance and rules gurus. Great idea! And they're not out there to harass golfers. Just an added bonus.

A favorite local course that I like to play early in the morning. Always in great shape. Have been coming here since the early seventies! The groundskeepers do a great job. Pro Shop staff friendly as are the starters. Course is fun to play from the white tees. Normally my buddies and I can get around in under 3.5 hours.If your looking for a wide open leaf free course in the autumn, this is it!

Never again will I play this course when it is cart path only and if the rough stays as long as it is. Fairways were nicely manicured but, the rough was 4" high. I measured it.

Good morning, thank you for spending your time with us at SCS Golf Club. We do understand your concern about the rough but we do not purposely keep it at this length. However this past week has brought us over 4” of rain and two days of complete closures. Unfortunately that has made it almost impossible for us to get our heavy machinery on to the golf course and mow. If we did it would likely result in the machines getting stuck. It does not benefit us in any way to have longer rough. If you have played here before I hope you understand this is not the norm for us. Normal rough cut is 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 inches. The rough is long due to factors that were out of our control. I hope you decide to give us another chance in the future. If you would like to discuss further please contact Rob at 586-294-2000 ext. 2.

Thank you
