My finace proprosed to me on the 18th hole last fall. This is our favorite place in the state of Michigan to go. The staff is incrediable!!! Highly recommended. The resort is surrounded in a beautiful setting. We are big golfers and find this to be a great course.

We went with a group of about 25 couples and had a very good time. Most of us stayed in the Summit building and the rooms are a very good size. There are Jacuzzi tubs in each room, but they weren't used by any of us. They didn't look very clean, but the rest of the room was well kept....

The term "resort" is a real stretch here. The public areas in our slightly creepy building were truly run down, but our cavernous room had new carpet and was as clean as can be. Now the golf--we loved this course for both men and women. Interesting, varied holes kept us on our toes, with some long carries and nicely rolling...

Our group was composed of four couples who spent three days at Marsh Ridge for a golf getaway. though the food at Jacs restaurant was fine, the condition of the rooms and common facilities were awful--from the dated rooms to the peeling exterior to the missing and broken screens, knobs, and toilets, this place was terrible!!! Ice machine was broken...

Fun course to play with great elevation changes, rooms were clean and comfortable! Pool would have been nice but it was being worked on. The restaurant..... Jacs Place had very good food! I am pretty sure we will come back some day.

we had a fantastic time ! staff was very kind and seemed upbeat and happy, food, bar and room perfect. if I had to find something anything wrong it would simply be that the bed was way to firm. I will be going back again asap.....

The golf course is challenging and in decent shape. The staff were very nice and friendly. The rooms themselves are large, but very basic. Our room had a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, but no blow dryer. We were there on a $200 deal - two days of golf, voucher toward dinner and lodging, so I can't really complain....

Stayed at Bergen Lodge for two nights with a group of friends in April 2014. The room was ok, seemed clean enough. Only two sets of towels when three of us had checked in. Pull down bed was a little skimpy in the mattress dept but otherwise ok. One of my friends got sick from the food at the restaurant...

My wife and i went to Marsh Ridge in mid Sept. 2013. There were highs and lows at this "Resort". First of all, the golf course was great! Not busy at all, excellent layout, difficult greens, great fairways. That is where the highs ended. Lowest of the low was the food at this facility. My wife and i both became...

Me and a group stayed here for a nights stop over on a golf weekend. We got the "scramble" deal ... I thinks that's what it was called. So it was $90/per golfer, you got a room for the night, a round of golf with range balls as well as a pizza and a pitcher of beer ... Great deal!!...
