    Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club Course Review

    Arcadia Bluffs is one of those golf clubs that will completely captivate and flabbergast you the first time you set foot on its premises. However, it must be noted that Arcadia Bluffs makes for number 57 in the top 100 golf courses in America and also number 13 in top 100 public golf courses in the country, so it is pretty well known around. Located in Arcadia, Michigan USA, Arcadia Bluffs was built by two illustrious architects, Rick Smith and Warren Henderson and it started operating in 1999. What will definitely strike you about this golf course is that everything about it is massive, as in big: ranging from the greens, the undulations, the drop off down to the Lake Michigan, the dunes, the bunkering, the 225 ft elevation from the high point to the low point of the golf course, not to mention that Arcadia Bluffs spreads over 240 acres. Everything is absolutely massive in scale.

    Now, as far as reviews go, my first advice to you is to stop thinking about it, just get a beer, grab a cart and go enjoy a beautiful game of golf on Arcadia Bluffs, one of the most inspiring and in the same time difficult golf courses in the US. There's no way around it, you must see it to believe it. Another thing that caught my attention was the jaw dropping view of the lake Michigan and the golf club's 3100 feet of shoreline, these make for an absolutely epic scenery, contributing to your overall gaming experience in the most pleasant way. Some people say that Arcadia Bluffs is more beauty than skills (as in brains), but then again, just get there and criticize it afterwards. In my experience, Arcadia Bluffs is the best public course in the Mid West, offering quite a few of unique hole designs and awesome visuals which very few others can rival.
