Great atmosphere! Great staff! Everyone is always friendly and Song is a wonderful bartender that made us feel welcome and she kept us laughing! The appetizers at happy hour are very good. We have had the sliders, ribs and Asian chicken wings and each are very good.

First let me say the few people working there were wonderful and the service was great. The burgers are pretty good too! We did not stay there overnight. But if you are there to play golf as we were then I suggest you go to one of the many well-kept courses in the area and AVOID THIS GOLF COURSE! This...

We stayed in the Copehagen. The first room they sent us to had not been cleaned and it took a while to get another room. The clerk indicated they would compensate us for the inconvenience, but they did not. Although parts of the room has been updated, the bathroom looked like it had not been updated since the 90's. It...

We stayed at the Ridge for two nights last week in The Bergen. The room was ok but not great. The bathroom shower has a closet door not a wall, no housekeeping so make sure you place your towels on racks to dry. They did have soap and lotion available but not shampoo. The building has one level so each...

This is the second time our group has stayed at the Scandinavian. To begin, the house has no housekeeping. The kitchen is not set up for cooking for a group. There was only 1 small fry pan and a small griddle. No kitchen towels or garbage bags. There was food left on the living room floor. Cobwebs everywhere, carpet in...

We were here last week and stayed at the Bergen at the Ridge. The room has been remodeled somewhat but still a few funky things (shower curtain to cover a door in the bathroom, old 1980's cabinets). You couldn't sit out on the patio as there were no chairs, and the area was overgrown with weeds. The staff was outstanding...

The new "The Ridge" was purchased by the same group that owns "The Loon" and "The Lakes" courses. It is under completely new management and some tremendous improvements have been made. If you were at Marsh Ridge at the end of it's life, please consider coming back to "The Ridge". You should be pleasantly surprised. The food and service are...

My finace proprosed to me on the 18th hole last fall. This is our favorite place in the state of Michigan to go. The staff is incrediable!!! Highly recommended. The resort is surrounded in a beautiful setting. We are big golfers and find this to be a great course.

We went with a group of about 25 couples and had a very good time. Most of us stayed in the Summit building and the rooms are a very good size. There are Jacuzzi tubs in each room, but they weren't used by any of us. They didn't look very clean, but the rest of the room was well kept....
