My son played in a golf tournament over a two day period and my wife and I walked the course both days.

Played Forest Akers West Course today. A very challenging championship course at Michigan State University (MSU). The course has fours sets of tees, the longest measures 7,013-yards. A par-72 course that is in excellent condition. A must play if in the Lansing, East Lansing, area.

It had been 40 years since I was a student, and couldn't remember the course. I was impressed with the layout, conditions and everything about it. I would highly recommend the course if in the area.
