Review: Tullymore Golf Course, MI
After passing by the clubhouse and heading to the back 9, I found the second half of the course was even more interesting than the first half. So many holes had me thinking and pondering if I had ever seen another hole like this before. The final few holes are really impressive. The horseshoe shaped green at 16 after 600 yards of fairway is really special. The finishing hole is another par 5 which offers so much risk and reward to finish strong or finish big.
Since the course has 5 par 3s and 5 par 5s it really sets it apart from other more “traditional” layouts. The par 35 front and 37 back too makes for an interesting feel between the 2 nines. If you play from the back tees it can play quite long at over 7200 yards. The layout is really great, and the conditions are some of the best you’ll find around. Every green was smooth and fast, the fairways were tight and bouncing and the rough was thick, but manageable. It is a really tough course with lots of water so be prepared.
I arrived at Tullymore not expecting much, but I left simply blown away by the course architecture. Jim Engh might have designed one of the most unique courses I’ve ever played. The challenging routing and radical green complexes make this one of the best courses in MI. I know it has received fan fair from national publications, but until you play it for yourself it is hard to understand how great this course is. Don’t judge it by a couple cover pictures, get there and play this outstanding track.
