Review: LochenHeath Golf Course, MI
After getting things taken care of in the clubhouse, the first tee offers a great panoramic view, but little in terms of an aiming point. Once you line up and get that first tee shot out of the way, the rest of the hole and holes are fairly straight forward. The par 3s on the front nine are incredible. The 3rd hole is a really long par 3 from the tips; driver is a realistic possibility depending on the wind. The 6th hole along the bay is a great short par 4 and the 8th and 9th holes are spectacular hit top settings with the bay in the distance. I played from the tips and would recommend playing a tee-box or two up if you are not a big hitter/low handicap golfer. The course is so much fun and challenging that if you only get one round here, don’t punish yourself from the tips.
This accessible private course has all the qualities you’d want from a one-time experience or a place to call your home course. The views are amazing, the conditions are superb and the challenges are endless. Don’t rush it at LochenHeath; get there early and improve at the practice facilities, stay there late and enjoy the patio/restaurant. It truly is the “Best on the Bay!”
