To begin, we checked into a dirty smelly condo with a broken fridge door that would not close. The fridge they said was full size on the phone when we booked. The only good thing I can say about the condo is that our rooms...More

The Gailes is a tough test of golf. The resort is showing its age and needs a refresh. The Gailes will test every facet of your game

Very impressive layout, instantly jumped into my top half dozen in the state. Great condition for the amount of play it gets, with fast true greens. It gets more difficult with the steady winds coming of Lake Huron. Several big boy par 4's at 420+...More
