If he really was in hunting mode she could’ve went over and hit and he would never even noticed herMy wife’s ball ended up right by the huge hawk yesterday. He was hunting and did not even care. I drive over and he didn’t even look up lol. She left it there.

Those photos are sick and you just added that course to my bucket list. So many places I will likely never play, that looks awesome!After visiting the Michigan golf show back in March we knew that we needed to make the drive and play Arcadia Bluffs. After watching the forecast anxiously for several days, the morning of we were greeted with partly cloudy skies and no rain until after lunchtime - long after we would be finished our round. While we weren't the first group out we were early enough that pace of play was very good, even despite us only being a twosome.
The first hole has lots of room to swing away and still find the fairway, although by the time you get to your third shot the sod-wall bunkers are looming. One of the first things you notice (at least we did) are the flagsticks - they are only about 5 feet tall. Oh, and the greens are HUGE. and FAST.

The fourth hole - straight down towards Lake Michigan. The green is just behind the sod wall bunker on the left. It looks like if you're long you're into the lake, but in fact there are two full holes over the green.

The seventh hole - back uphill away from the lake. No doubt that you're playing a links course.

An innocent enough looking par 3. I'm glad the pin was at the back, because the false front on this green will reject a ball 40-50 yards.

While the front nine is fairly open with everything in front of you, the back nine has a few "target" holes. Case in point the 10th - your aim point from the tee is the barber pole. Straight over the pole puts you in the middle of the fairway that is hidden from the tee.

So you've survived 17 holes so far - the 18th awaits! But you can take comfort in the row of Adirondack chairs laid out in a row behind the clubhouse overlooking 75% of the course and of course Lake Michigan. Mother Nature put a damper on us getting to enjoy them, but nonetheless I'm sure they make for a great place to relax and have a drink.
