I woul highly recommend Whitehall Township near Muskegon (30 minutes from Flip City), and if you like short wooded courses Rycenga a few minutes south of Muskegon. I was just over there and hit Flip, Rycenga, Whitehall, Deerfield, on the western half . . . Tittabawasee Trails, Central Michigan U., Chippewa Banks, on our way across to Bay City and Wickes Woods, The Vines at Reed County Park, Sleepy Hollow State Park on our way home.

Robert Morris is a very good course. Riverside isn't as bad as all that once you get used to wading out into a swamp to retrieve your errant drives and stepping across goose poops. There are some challenging holes there and no real rough to speak of. I notice no one mentioned Earl Brewer,lol.

Other than that, I hope you at least make it to Flip!

I've never played in NC, but I imagine Whitehall is very similar!

Can't believe no one has mentioned Meyer-Broadway near Three Rivers. Two courses for one stop. Haven't been there since they added the additional course but it was a lot of fun.

I would add Oshtemo to your list (the worlds were there a few years back and its a great all around course), and if you're in the Kalamazoo area, Coldbrook and the Meyer Broadway courses (Original one is my favorite) are worth playing too. Riverbends is also really fun and scenic with a river running by a few holes, so if you're going to be playing around the metro-detroit area I would def suggest it.
Otherwise I'd say you have a pretty solid list. Guessing this is going to be an extended trip from the length of your list!

FWIW, I like Leviathan better than any of the individual courses at mason county, though it's cool to have 72 holes in one spot.

i thought cass benton was better than the hudson mills courses when we played them in 2000 but supposedly it has been trashed since then. hudson mills original was way better than hudson mills monster. i also thought addison oaks didn't really live up to its reputation. the kensington tunnel course was pretty good- i think it has been redesigned since then though. ann arbor is a cool town too.

nothing in grand rapids was any good.

must plays...
flip city
hickory hills
carlys playground

honestly these are the only MUST plays(keep in mind i havent played 4 of the courses you have listed). the northwest courses are the real pretty scenery courses, and are set in cooler towns and places to vacation. the popular courses in southeast mi are great courses but dont have the look and feel of the northern ones but there are some great ones. addison and stoney are well worth a visit. seymour lake is a very underrated course, hudson mills and kensington are nice. if you decide to play holly, seymour, stoney, or addison then let me know and i should be able to guide you around.
