Michigan Golf Magazine: Bucks Run Golf Club Course Review

Two Guys Who Golf : Bucks Run Golf Club Course Review


While the golf at Bucks Run is on par with courses that charge twice as much for a round. I was especially struck by how well maintained superintendent Jeff Sweet and his grounds crew keep this 300-plus acre facility. The condition of the course is nothing short of impeccable: tee boxes, fairways, greens, rough, woods, flower boxes and ornamental landscaping.

Just a note to thank you for a great golfing experience. We played on Monday, June 9th at noon. From the moment we arrived at the property 'til we departed, we were treated in a first-class manner. From the bag drop person, to the Proshop gentleman, to the young lady in the restaurant, to the Ranger. All were first-class.  As for the course, it too was spectacular. Fair, but challenging. We really enjoyed ourselves and you can bet we will return to Bucks Run. Thanks again
John Hickson

I would like to thank the entire staff at your facility for a great day of golf! Everyone from the young man that helped us by taking our clubs at the bag drop to the counter guy to the ranger were all extremely professional and totally committed to making sure that we had an enjoyable day on the course. Everyone seemed genuinely committed to my complete satisfaction. It if rare to find this type of customer service and I praise the entire team for this. I will be back not only because of the beautiful views and stunning course management, but moreover because of this incredible dedication to true customer service!
Michael Root

Top notch golf course, starters and rangers were extremely friendly and helpful during our round. We can't wait to play this course again next year! My friends and I go on a golf trip every year and last year was our first time playing at Bucks Run. We look forward to making this course part of our regular rotation, we absolutely loved it.

Outstanding condition, great use of the river and lake in course design, appropriate intervention by the pro to alleviate back up on front nine, and the cool wet towels were a plus on a hot day. Best tasting hamburger I've had in a long time, worth coming back just for that, and it was ready when we came in at the turn.
Jim Hesseman

This was my third year playing at Bucks Run and have enjoyed them all. Your staff is always friendly and professional. The ice cold towel on the middle of the course was a class act and appreciated. I just wish Bucks Run was a little closer to home so I could play it more often. Keep up the good work. Your course was in excellent condition. Very well maintained.
Tom Sible

Your course has been one of the best maintained that we have played on. This was the first time that I experienced the challenging yet feel at ease play of the course. We will surely par take in another few rounds at your establishment. My hats off to you and your staff for maintaining such a wonderful bit of land.
Keith Cogbill

This was indeed the best kept course I have ever played. The staff was very professional and the course was perfect. I have recommended it to everyone I golf with since playing it. I would like to thank the staff from the top all the way to the cart girl. We were very well received and the course is the best we have ever played in Michigan.
Rex Hazzard

Excellent course! Great, knowledgeable staff, with a great Pro Shop selection. Great food, too. You can't go wrong!

Marlene and I had the pleasure of playing Bucks Run for the first time Friday, 10-14-2011 .  Although the weather was not entirely cooperative, we would like the entire staff at Bucks Run to know that we enjoyed a wonderful day of golf at your facility.  The golf course played challenging, but lenient when we were paying close attention (typical of a J. Matthews layout).  The course presented many opportunities for recovery from a missed shot, and rewarded a well executed stroke (I played from the White tees; Marlene from the Red).  The course remained in excellent condition (a pleasant surprise given our late season experience ), and the greens were both receptive and well rolling. Marlene and I were warmly welcomed and well accommodated by the course's food and beverage staff (we were both somewhat astonished, but grateful to see beverage service on the course at this late date).  Marlene and I will make it a point to tell our Southwest Michigan golfing friends about our great experience at Bucks Run, and we plan to visit again both soon and often .  A great golf course, with appropriately great service.  Well done, Bucks Run.
Marlene and Mark Hatch

I have played 35 years in most of the states including Hawaii and many top 100, this course will be in my top 10. Had the Friday buffet and lunch Saturday, great service and food. Thanks to Chef Pete and his staff.

Bucks Run Golf Club busted onto the Michigan golf scene in July 2000 with an incredible course designed by Jerry Matthews. If you have never played Bucks Run you will want to add them to your must play list in 2007.
Bruce Fuller, Michigan Publinxer Magazine

I was fortunate enough to play Bucks Run in July of 2006 and let me tell you. . . The one constant - all the extras are maintained at the same high level as the 6,756-yard championship layout. As for the par 72 course, it's a thrilling collection of gorgeous par-3's, challenging par-4's and strategic par-5's.
Glen Turk, Midwest Golfing Magazine

Honestly, if the Two Guys Who Golf could design a golf facility that we would be completely satisfied with and proud of - this would be it! Great location in the center of the state, incredible design that is challenging but fair, and top notch facilities - throw in the courteous and friendly service and you have a real winner. Without question - Bucks Run is in our books, a top five golf course in the state of Michigan!

The veranda of the clubhouse offers one of the nicest clubhouse views you will ever find. It also gets high points for its uniqueness and great conditioning.
Golf Cleveland Ohio Course Reviews

The staff at the Pro-Shop were very friendly. The starter was extremely friendly and helpful, making our 9 holes of golf as a walk-on very comfortable and enjoyable. The course was in beautiful shape. Can not wait to return.
Ed Gnas

I play this course once or twice a year with my group outing and its always a pleasure and my personal favorite every year. I look forward to the course and the balcony after wards at the clubhouse and I insist on being the first off the tee on this course!
Donald Coleman, Miller Group

Played in the tournament last weekend, great time! Absolutely beautiful course, can't wait to play this spring. Thank you everyone! Food was wonderful, steak was HUGE! Service great (thank you Nathan)! Really glad we made the trip from Northern Michigan!
