Can not beat the price. The course is fairly easy but fun to play. The greens and fairways are in rough shape, but again for the price its a decent place. I dont recall a beverage cart service, however there is a bar.

Love the layout of Black Forest. I'm looking forward to playing the course again next weekend. It got the best of me the first time, quite challenging but I love it!! This might be the best golf course in northern Michigan when it's in peak condition. The layout and scenery is amazing. Did not know much about Tom Doak before, but very excited we have on of his highest rated golf courses in our backyard!
Had my first round of the year this past weekend and the course was very secluded and beautiful. Conditions were good, not 100% but the layout and scenery more than makes up for it. Some of the reviews on here are so harsh, maybe conditions were much worse in the past, but I don't get it.
Black Forest Golf Course at Wilderness Valley is probably Gaylord's best golf course although the name is a little confusing. Really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend for a fun and challenging Northern Michigan golf experience.

Heartbreaking. This used to be such a great course, but is clearly in a death spiral of mismanagement and lack of care and maintenance. We played Wilderness valley, and it was flat out unplayable. Greens are dying from disease and lack of watering. It is a total guess which way your ball will bounce, skip, and kick over the surface. Fairways are nothing but clover, and hadn’t been mowed in a while. Traps were full of rocks and weeds. Aside from the course conditions, the clubhouse was also a wreck, and lacking even basic snacks, beverages, and food other than nasty microwaved hot dogs. I felt bad for the staff, they were clearly exasperated. I willl give them credit for going and getting some Gatorade so we could have some at the turn on this hot, dry day. Avoid.
