Thanks to reviews on Trip Advisor, I chose Mt. Brighton for a recent quick 9 holes with my teenage son. My experience with Mt. Brighton is more in the winter through their ski program and this was my first time golfing there. I consider myself to be an intermediate/experienced golfer and my son is an intermediate. First, I would say... More

I live in the area. When I heard an 18 hole golf course was going to be built around Mt. Brighton, I was skeptical. Gotta tell ya, it is very challenging as well as scenic and well kept. This is one course where you have to lay your ball well. Way to many places to get into trouble. Seriously, no... More

I attended a golf outing here and had a wonderful time. Michigan has a lot of great golf courses but many don't offer much challenge regarding elevation. Since Mt. Brighton is a ski resort in the winter, do you ever get elevation here! I have to admit winding through the lifts and snow machines is strange but aside from that... More

Hole #1 is at the top of a ski mountain. Great views, a variety of habitat and a very enjoyable golf experience overall. 60+ aged hitters that can't take it long? Use the gold tees to stay out of serious trouble. My favorite par 3 is #6. Enjoy some very interesting menu items afterwards in the Ore Creek Grill.

Played The Golf Club at Mt. Brighton today. A number of years ago I had played it when it was called The Jackal at Mt. Brighton. It is built around the Mt. Brighton ski slops and lifts. An 18-hole, par-71, 6702-yards from the longest tees. The has 4 sets of tees to play from. You start at the top of... More

Great coarse, love the ups and downs, and good for all types of golfers. Love the 18th island hole, will play this coarse again.

Love playing this course which is arranged around Mt Brighton. From the first hole which is on top of the mountain, the course is well arranged and challenging. Some think its gimmicky which may be true depending on one's definition of 'gimmicky,' but on the other hand each hole is fair and playable but you've got to think it through.... More

The golf course is gimmicy, and not very attractive. The ski equipment is lying about on several holes. The dining room is dark, and gives the appearance of being dirty. With the many other courses in the immediate area, this would be the last one I'd consider playing.

This course is played around Mt. Brighton. A non traditional golf course but it does have its challenges from very protected greens, to tight wooded shots, to hair pin angle holes. Over the years the course seems to be getting more updates and better maintenance, but I have seen worse. If you are looking for a fun course, non traditional... More

Four of us golfed on the Friday after July 4th. Horrible pace of play - 11:30 tee time, finished at 5:30. I counted 11 people on one of the par 4's on the front nine. No one seemed to be monitoring and some groups were more interested in beer drinking than golfing. Course in average shape and even from the... More
