Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
Terrible staff and course is awful
The course at Lyon oaks looks great through pictures but that’s only on certain parts. The course is beat down and seems like there’s almost no maintenance. The staff was rude to us and held us up in the pro shop. The outside workers also stopped us and accused us of not paying and calling for a tee time. Worst course in Oakland county
Good Author Hills layout. Most fairways have room with only a few tight holes. Usually in great shape
For a senior, the course is a good deal. Tough course, challenging and normally in good shape. The course requires accuracy and position. I play this course every chance I get.
Surprisingly nice muni
The conditions were great, very friendly staff and the course routing offered a lot of fun and interesting holes.
Worst golfing experience ever !
Got harassed so bad for slow play and told to skip a hole ! We actually had enough and quit after 15 holes ! Never ever happened before in my 50 years of playing golf! We do not play slow the course is tough and was Cart Path only ! The group behind us was a full hole behind ! The final straw was when a 19 yr old from the clubhouse threatened a physical confrontation with my friend a 67 yr old ! I paid $67 for this disastrous round! Avoid this course like the plague!
Layout is fantastic. Great Arthur Hills design. Conditions are horrible. Greens have patches everywhere. Course is not well maintained. But the views and natural surroundings are well worth the experience. The course is challanging for all levels.
Are the courses in Michigan in good shape in mid-April after a cold harsh winter. It was snowing and 20 degrees just before April 16, surprised the course was open.
Good day on the course, we played poorly
Course was in great shap of July, weather was hot but a little breeze made it a very good day. Started/ Ranger were very friendly and didn't have much interaction with htem that day. Would and will play again. Rool up sandwitches a little on thepricey side, staff at bar was SOSO.
excellent course i will go back again & again (can not wait to go back). i injoyed myself alot.
Great views and fast greens!!!
Great fall weather for such a beautiful course! Great layout with fast greens. I was surprised just smooth and fast the greens were this late into the year. Would play this course every day if it was not 2 hours away. Definitely worth the drive!! Friendly starter and pace of play was 2 hr. and 30 min.
Some slight elevation changes mixed with a few blind shots. Tough layout with forced carries. Must hit to the correct side of the fairway to get home in two on the par 4's. Well mixed long and short par 4's.
Book a tee time it’s worth it!!
Nice Course. Good greens. Layout is Average except for back 9.
Good course. Front nine not as interesting layout. Back 9 is pretty cool. Greens rolled nice and pretty quick. Would NOT pay $40 to play this course. Rattle Run on east side is better. Not a Shepard's Hollow but still a nice course. Would like to play in summer time to get different feel.
Perfect fall golf. Leaves were maintained pretty well on course. Great golf course to play at anytime...
Course is in nice shape but for the money I'd rather play moose ridge or whispering pines. It's open but challenging, just not a personal favorite of mine. Greens are slow and flat.
Excellent Course; worth the drive. Friendly staff. Challenging for the intermediate and advanced golfer.
Beautiful , and well maintained .
Enjoyed the overall beauty of the course . Was a bit challenging but not overly so . Greens were quicker than other courses I've played . Had a friend from Fla. in town and he really raved about the course conditions .
Lyon Oaks is a beautiful golf course well-maintained. The greens Held shots and rolled true...perfect.
Best Value in Detroit Area
I saw a couple posts about this course being a little over priced. I strongly disagree. I will gladly spend the extra $10-15 for Lyon Oaks when you compare what the golf course has to offer stacked up to other courses in the area. The course conditions are on the same level as the Orchards, which seems to get all the credit for being the best maintained public course in the area. Lyon Oaks is easily in that discussion as well. Lyon Oaks is definitely a challenging course if you struggle off the tee, but it is not a course that constantly beats you up holes 1-18. My only gripe with the layout is hole #14. Not much room off the tee and anything left is dead while anything missed to the right will likely greet you with an awkward stance to an uphill approach shot. Its just not a quality golf hole but by no means does that make Lyon Oaks a poor track. Excellent golf course with conditions that are always superb. Almost a hidden gem in some fashion but its a must play.
