The Gailes is a links course and reminds me of some of the courses in Scotland. Pot bunkers - sod bunkers and lots of burns. Be sure to check the wind on your approach shots or you could be in a head high bunker. A...More

Lakewood Shores Resort gives the impression that it has seen better days. The room was adequate but the grounds were a little run down. Unfortunately there were several loud and drunk groups of college age men who managed to turn the lodging area and par...More

I vacation in the Oscoda area and have played the Gailes 3 times already this year. Be sure to pick your correct tees, otherwise you will have a long day. Very unique course that I’ve learned to love. If you can avoid the weekends, you...More

Tough golf challenge for us non-European duffers! Pristine condition, it ain't. Challenging and interesting, it is. Rock Bottom (sorry Scratch!) deals to be had here for golf, lodging, food packages, etc. Yes, you'll be "roughing" it in most respects vs. going to Pinehurst, Pebble Beach,...More
