The course has many elevation changes, the holes are nicely framed by the woods behind each one. The staff are very friendly, with almost a family feeling. Play the longer tees if you are a low handicap, the course will be plenty tough from the...More

Many elevation changes and thick gnarly rough make this a course not for the faint of heart or lack of ability. Shoulder season rates ($35 when we played) make this one of the best golf bargains in upper Michigan. I recommend this course with the...More

Went here with my 3 brothers for my first golfing experience. Being from the area, I thought that the course made excellent use of the land by highlighting the natural beauty of the area. For a first timer, the course was very challenging, yet not...More

Bahle Farms is by far the finest and most fun course to play in NW Michigan and I've played most of them. The elevations, orchards, woods, and views make Bahle Farms pure golfing pleasure. It is also more forgiving than you might think. The Bear...More
