The term "resort" is a real stretch here. The public areas in our slightly creepy building were truly run down, but our cavernous room had new carpet and was as clean as can be. Now the golf--we loved this course for both men and women. Interesting, varied holes kept us on our toes, with some long carries and nicely rolling... More

Our group was composed of four couples who spent three days at Marsh Ridge for a golf getaway. though the food at Jacs restaurant was fine, the condition of the rooms and common facilities were awful--from the dated rooms to the peeling exterior to the missing and broken screens, knobs, and toilets, this place was terrible!!! Ice machine was broken... More

Fun course to play with great elevation changes, rooms were clean and comfortable! Pool would have been nice but it was being worked on. The restaurant..... Jacs Place had very good food! I am pretty sure we will come back some day.

The golf course is challenging and in decent shape. The staff were very nice and friendly. The rooms themselves are large, but very basic. Our room had a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, but no blow dryer. We were there on a $200 deal - two days of golf, voucher toward dinner and lodging, so I can't really complain.... More

Stayed at Bergen Lodge for two nights with a group of friends in April 2014. The room was ok, seemed clean enough. Only two sets of towels when three of us had checked in. Pull down bed was a little skimpy in the mattress dept but otherwise ok. One of my friends got sick from the food at the restaurant... More

My wife and i went to Marsh Ridge in mid Sept. 2013. There were highs and lows at this "Resort". First of all, the golf course was great! Not busy at all, excellent layout, difficult greens, great fairways. That is where the highs ended. Lowest of the low was the food at this facility. My wife and i both became... More

Me and a group stayed here for a nights stop over on a golf weekend. We got the "scramble" deal ... I thinks that's what it was called. So it was $90/per golfer, you got a room for the night, a round of golf with range balls as well as a pizza and a pitcher of beer ... Great deal!!... More

Stayed at Marsh Ridge for a nice two night getaway August 5-6, 2013. My husband went to golf and have some drinks and relax and that is exactly what we did. The staff was friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed at the resort for two days recently. The resort is stuck in the 1970's and REALLY needs to be updated. Our room was large, but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. The bathroom that I used after nine holes was the worst bathroom that I've ever been in (smelled, no... More
