I really liked this course! I had booked to play it last fall with Dad, but we enjoyed Tullymore so much we decided to play that one more time before heading out of Pure Michigan. Too, the rating of Arcadia here as a 9.25 and Tullymore as a perfect 10 is a good example of how my rating system works. The layout of Arcadia was exceptional, as good as, if not more satisfying than Tully (given the lake aesthetic, et cetera); but, the staff was not quite as friendly (though they were friendly, Tullymore staff on the two days I played there were just very accommodating and personable). Also, the conditions were easily not as pristine as Tully. Nevertheless, Arcadia Bluffs is an amazing golf course. Go play it, if you have the means!
My scorecard for the day (played great despite some winds off of Lake Michigan, the GPS was off, as you will see if you look at my shots): LINK
