Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 8.00

The clubhouse and amenities at Antrim Dells Golf Club are quite extensive. First and foremost is the restaurant, we highly recommend this dining room for its outstanding dinner menu with fresh catches like white fish and even prime rib night. There is also a large deck for outdoor dining and a full bar available. The clubhouse includes a wide variety of equipment and apparel at average pricing. There is a self-serve bag drop and the carts are in good condition. The cart paths do need attention in areas. Parking is good and the service is outstanding with an engaging and friendly staff.

SUMMARY:

The course itself is in the process of being updated and reclaimed, which means it will continue to improve in years to come. The course has a nice consistency and is a good layout and a fun play. There are some spectacular views of Lake Michigan and an overall natural beauty. This hidden gem is a classic Jerry Matthew’s design and incorporates a beautiful hilly layout along with multiple sets of tees, forgiving fairways and a lot of hazards. A very interesting layout for 18 holes of golf. In addition, it has some of the best menu features you will find and outstanding food, making it well worth a visit for those who do not golf. It is one of northern Michigan’s favorite courses with a rich golfing history and is a fun test of golf as well as a local favorite. Couple that with the great service and the ability to play in a package deal, and a good price it makes Antrim Dells Golf Club is a recommended play.
