This is a great golf course and a must play if you love quality golf courses. The greens are very fast and the course is always in great shape. This is not an easy course so play the appropriate tees and be happy with par on most holes.
Tucked away in the midst of Michigan’s Amish country, midway between Chicago and Detroit, is Island Hills Golf Club & Resort. The 18-hole championship layout at Island Hills was designed by award-winning golf course designer and architect Raymond Hearn, who has taken this 220-acre tract of land and transformed it into a golf course masterpiece. Island Hills offers 18 of the most unique and scenic holes you’ll find in this part of Michigan; it also has five of the best finishing holes you’ll find anywhere in the state. Over the years, Island Hills has been selected by Golf Digest as one of the top five golf courses in Michigan. At Island Hills, you’ll experience a little bit of everything: wide open meadow prairie holes, tree-lined fairways that play through hardwood forests, low-lying wetlands, creeks and streams and views of rolling pastures and Lake Templene. Each hole makes its mark on the course and leaves you with 18 distinctly different memories. These days many golfers, especially millennials, don’t want to take all of the time it requires to play a full round of golf. Island Hills offers several alternatives, all on one 18-hole layout. The course can be played as a 5, 7, 12 or 18-hole course and can be played in less than an hour. Not having the time to play is no longer an excuse at Island Hills. And, if you don’t feel like lugging your clubs around, Island Hills offers both left and right-handed golfers the use of Adams Golf Clubs for FREE. I was told by several people before my visit that Island Hills has some of the best accommodations of any golf facility in the state and they were right. The 4 and 5-bedroom Golf Villas at Island Hills are luxurious and comfortable and overlook the par 3, 17th hole. The living areas and bedrooms were some of the most spacious I’ve ever encountered. Both the upper and lower level units have walkout balconies and fireplaces. Each villa has Wi-Fi and flat screen HDTVs with cable in every room. Lower level patios are equipped with gas grills for outdoor cooking. There’s also a full-size refrigerator, electric range, microwave oven, ice machine, and dinnerware. Each villa also has a meeting room, making Island Hills a great place to hold a business meeting or family reunion. Cassandra’s is located inside the Island Hills clubhouse. Cassandra’s specializes in Steak and Seafood and offers a lake front dining experience that is open to the public. They have a full bar, live entertainment and every table in the restaurant has either a waterfront or golf course view. There is plenty of seating for large parties and groups. Their charred Ribeye is a favorite among locals and will most likely leave you with some to take home. Be sure to check out the nightly specials or ask your server about them. Island Hills is a lot of fun to play. The first 13 holes mix it up with a wide variety of terrain, tree lined fairways, parkland style holes and open links style holes. For the most part, fairways are generous off the tees; where Island Hills makes you earn your score is on the approach shots. Many greens have several levels so distance control is a necessity if you want to stick it close and score well. No two holes are alike and all provide a good test of golf for any level of golfer. The final five holes will determine your fate; get around them in less than two over and chances are, you’ve done well. If you’re looking for a Stay & Play package, you won’t find better accommodations anywhere in the state. The food at Cassandra’s was delicious and the staff very knowledgeable and courteous.
