Very challenge course with lots of hilly and narrow fairway. Beautiful scenery! A true up north feeling without long distance driving.

Shepherds Hollow is my favorite place to golf in Michigan. Expertly maintained course with breathtaking views. Don’t skip out on dinner in the club house, the Chef is magnificent. Can’t wait to get back on the course.

What a great place to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Weather permitting, you can sit out by the trees, see actual golfers out in the wild and enjoy the warm breeze and song birds. The food isn't bad either.

Best public golf course in SE Michigan!!! Holes 1-9 and 19-27 are the best. 10-18 have a couple of holes that are squirrelly. Starters should be a lot more friendly and appreciate customers instead of acting like it's a bother!!

We paid $70 with a cart. That was during the week and booked with the pro shop not with a tee time web site so you may be able to get a better rate.
