  • Probably the best maintained course I've seen. Nice layout and not a lot of blind shots. First time I played it and I really enjoyed it. Didn't play the new Loop course but it sounds interesting. Mayb...  read more »
  • We had very enjoyable dinner. If you're not driving try a Bloody Mary with sausage it was very good. The service was friendly and timing was good. If you're looking for a nice restaurant in Grayling, ...  read more »
  • If you read my reviews, I hold a special place for Shadow Creek Golf Club in Las Vegas. I often refer to it as Disneyland for golfers. It is still my #1 track I have played. However, Forest Dunes is H...  read more »
  • This is a special place. The course is amazing, the lodging is unforgettable... Just an amazing property. I am looking forward to their new layout coming soon. If you get the chance, play here. It is SO pure.
  • Great track in great shape. I don't know if $150 a round is quite worth it but it is ranked the #3 course in Michigan.
  • Beautifully manicured course, super-fine clubhouse, great professional and service staff. I've played a number of top notch courses across the nation and Forest Dunes is one of the best...!
  • Sorry, for the late review, we played 6 months ago... Every year... 4-5 years straight! This is actually the first review from me and I should have reviewed this course a few times! This is without a doubt Michigan's premier course. Forest Dunes Golf Club, simply put, will become the mecca of Michigan golf more so now than ever with the addition of "The Loop". As a golf enthusiast when I review a course I have played whether it be on google, tripadvisor, or any other rating system I review exactly what I am there for; golfing. The condition of this course is amazing. Especially for being in the ~$150 range you can tell they meticulously and methodically manicure this course. During our stay, peak season, the condition was immaculate! Our tee off was early morning each day and on arrival we watched as the grounds crew just swarm the course every morning literally touching all aspects of each hole. Condition: A+ Difficultly of the course is pretty high if you're a casual golfer 80's is great. The concept "Forest Dunes" is unique! Front 9 in the Forest and Back 9 in the Dunes. Mentally and physically challenging as gameplay changes completely when you make the turn. Great concept. Difficultly: A+ Although, you can tell this course was carved into the woods to create the front 9 it was done very tastefully. You can also tell that the natural landscaping of the dunes is exactly that; natural. It looks and plays incredibly. Golf is about the natural elements of life so wind, weather and bugs are a mute point in any golf review. They have successfully captured the natural beauty of northern Michigan. All-in-all the golf here is unique, difficult, and pure. When "The Loop" opens this club will be taking it's first step to "owning" Michigan golf. 100% reversible course!? The first in the world of it's kind! When we were talking to the pro-shop desk they told us their "Loop" Superintendent or Director was from our neck of the woods in Chicago. We were shocked they were able to get a Chicago Golf Club Director to spearhead their new course "The Loop". As the Chicago Golf Club is probably the most exclusive club in the nation. "The Loop" is going to be phenomenal in concept and play! Our week long trip will have 3 days here alone! Forest Dunes and Both plays on "The Loop" (when is opens)!! Forest Dunes is our number 1 course in Michigan. However, it might fall to number 2 when "The Loop" opens. Regardless, Forest Dunes Golf Club respectfully owns the number 1 spot for golf destination! Awesome Job!! See you in the Summer!
  • Great course. Bring your sand wedge.
