A-Ga-Ming Golf Resort | Torch

  6 Reviews

See my review of 6/9/17. I've played Sundance every year since it opened. It's a wonderful track with wonderful conditioning. For the rates they charge I'm down grading by two stars because I'm sick and tired of dealing with their trailer for a clubhouse. Better yet Ag-a-ming renovate the original Torch course clubhouse/add onto that and you might get your 5 star rating. Same trailer, smelly bathrooms and sorry guys but it's about time your invest in the proper facilities to welcome golfers to this premier NoMI track.

Beautiful golf course with views of Torch Lake.
Greens were quick but not unfair.

This was my first time playing the Torch and I do not think I will be back. In hindsight, I should have played the Sundance course. The front 9 was beautifully maintained and the layout showcased the location. When we made the turn, with the exception of hole 10, the course dropped off significantly in terms of maintenance and layout. The layout did not seem to make much sense and the fairways and greens were not in the best condition. I would consider playing at A-Ga-Ming again, but definitely not at this course.

By no-means is the torch the standard bearer at a-ga-ming, that honor goes to Sundance; however, the Torch offers a beautiful course for a little less-money than Sundance does next-door (I would still highly recommend playing Sundance over Torch).

The course was in pretty good shape, but it is a little-bit in a valley and there was some muddy spots in the fariways due to all the rain we had. My group of 16 played in a 4-man scramble here and everyone had a great time, which the copious amounts of alcohol drunk throughout the day may have played a part in. Just watch your level of intoxication because the Miller-group behind us (who were animals) got black-balled by the cart-girls for their rowdy behavior somewhere in the middle of the round.

Course is pretty tight, have to hit the fairways, but it is definitely a course where you are rewarded for your good shots.

I was pretty appalled when I saw a 3* review for this course as it is up-top on my list of "must-play" courses in Northern Michigan along with the obvious Forest Dunes and hidden-gems like Dunmaglas. This course had everything going for it: the views were spectacular, the rolling hills and elevated tee-shots made for some challenging golf and the staff there was top-notch. One thing of note, the elevation changes on the par-3s really had no effect on how far the hole played (at least for my group), which was frustrating but now you know. The cart-girls were fantastic, they made their way to our group seemingly every-other hole--which I am sure was in no small part to one of my buddies getting a little wild and dancing on their cart...

Anyways, this course is a must-play in Northern Michigan, I will definitely check it out again and also advise playing the other courses at a-ga-ming.
