I travel 3 hours to play the course each fall and if you have never played here, you need to put it on your list of courses to play. The front 9 and back 9 have totally different looks so you don't get bored and the greens roll true, but watch out for the subtle breaks you don't see until... More

Great golf course with many beautiful sites as you play through. Dan and staff provide a fun experience, with a great club house for the pit stops. My favorite course in northern Michigan!

I love the layout, it makes you use every club in your bag. The course maintenance is lacking, I have never seen so many rocks in the sand traps. The staff wasn't very friendly.

Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you enjoyed the layout. The "course maintenance is lacking" comment is one that I haven't heard in regards to The Quest in years. Our grounds staff takes great pride in the condition of the course and the constant improvements that we make every season. I will admit that your staff comment is... More

Truly a top course destination. It is extremely well manicured. Greens, fairways and even the rough are in great shape. Showed up without a tee time and they were very accommodating getting me out. 5 sets of tees so anyone can play from their comfort zone.

Very well maintained, nice fair greens, challenging but not frustrating. Very enjoyable course to play. I'd like to return, there are some holes I'd play differently! Recommend!

Played The Quest Golf Club on a beautiful day. An 18-hole course with 5 sets of tees. The longest tees are 6,782-yards and 5,025-yards from the shortest tees. A beautiful course that is both fun and challenging. There is water and sand on the course. A course worth driving several hours to play.

This golf course was exactly what we were looking for and was exactly as we were told it would be by the manager at the Beachfront Hotel. The hotel we were staying at (not far of a drive to) told us we would be very pleased with The Quest to get 18 holes in before dinner. We aren't professionals, but... More

I have played many courses and this is my new favorite, with the large greens they can put the pins in different locations to make the approach shots different each day. The par 4's are really par fours and not always reachable in two, you have to hit good shots on each hole to keep your score down but for... More
