Tight and new. Rough is rough. With a couple trees gone and concrete tees the course would be an A- but I myself am biased.
EDIT* TONS of trees removed. Come check it out!

the original 9 will test any player ability with it's tight lines and thick brush. an arrant drive will surely be punished. the name of the game here is placement if you want to get up and down in 3. the first two holes curve to the right followed by a 375' gradual left. 4 is in the shape of an inverted L with the pin tucked in to the right, 5 on the original (or 20 when the course is completed) is a straight 250'r AKA the deuce hole. 6 has a 25' gap to hit and you could play a slow "S" turn or ...

11/6/16-I haven't been to this course in 4 months or so. I went today just for a short nine and was blown away that the back 9 are in for a total of 18 holes. These back holes are nothing like the front, they have and up north feel with tons of elevation. They are all solid par 3s and hole 18 is for sure a par 4 or maybe 5 at 500+ feet snaking downhill through the woods. All the holes are now re-number 1-18 with great flow. Signs on all the holes. The back nine do not have t-pads, I hope they wi ...

This course will be a gem when its done its months even maybe years before it will hit its stride, almost 2 years if you include planning and approval to get to this point but who knows with luck we can get this finished this year... we are all out there trying anyway. Big love to Bill Gilbert for working a registered almost 200 hrs last year on that course just in clean up of pickers and brush and downed trees CRAZY! But coming along looking much better last weekend when i was out with some more trees down... NICE
Just keeps getting nicer... looking so much better out there!

Sorry john i hit 392 hours last year working on this course. it has all kinds of potential but long way to go. ignore the ADA handicap holes the real front 9 is back in the woods, i base none of my rating on those as i consider them simply warm up holes. way better this year after the park cut down the tress, and then some, that were approved to be removed last year. 15 more holes to go and the park has changed directions on the land we get to use so alot more elevation changes will come into play.

It's ugly for sure it should get better. What a random layout I can see a ton of work has been done to get to this point but that land is not pretty it is well design and you can tell the course is getting worked hard to make it what it is no complaint to the designers I think they are doing the best they can with what they got but a rake would go a long way.

It's baskets in a field, is this really designed or just planted?

Front 9 C+, super luck fest tunnel course, needs beating in.
Back 9 A, obviously needs tee pads, but very cool use of elevation.

First 9 are meh but the back has some of the best holes I have played in Michigan. Need teepads on the back!

Fun course, glad it's finally done, it will get better with usage. Nice to not have to fight crowds at Kensington. Could use better signs especially the front 9. Still a little overgrown, but not horrible. The back 9 were challenging and fun.

1-9 great opening, low elevation but good lines with some tight fairways and thick rough make it challenging for new to intermediate players.
10-18 turn into a great course for elevation challenges with a continuation of thick rough but a bit more forgiving in fairway size finishing off with a beautiful par 4.
Lots of poison ivy and a lack of pads on the back nine are my only current negatives. Teepads on the back would improve this a lot.
Also.. To all players.. No garbage cans that i saw yet so please pack in pack out, dont just leave your cans at the tee sign
