Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Michigan
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.
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.
Big up north golf for a fraction of the price. Greens and fairways both free of leaves.
Perfect fall golf. Leaves were maintained pretty well on course. Great golf course to play at anytime...
Good for fall golf
Challenging layout with many sets of tees to choose from.
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.
Course is a little pricey
Regular prices are a little high... I played with discount rates which made it a fair value, otherwise would night have played at regular price.. There are other nice courses in the market at more reasonable prices. Course employees were very friendly. I would recommend a friend with discount rate.
Lyon Oaks a West side favorite
I hadn't played Lyon Oaks in several years. My golf game had gone south over the last few years due to lack of play. I was not confident that my game was close to challenging this magnificent course. With a lot of practice and play this year, I couldn't wait to play this challenging but playable and scorable track. It didn't disappoint. The layout was as fantastic as I remembered and the greens were in great shape except for the fact that there were many unrepaired ball marks. With the 50% Golf Now discount, it was my best golf value of the summer.
What is there to say? This is the best of the the best in Oakland county. Have not played here in 14 years and I am impressed. Heavy rain night before round yet drainage was great. Greens are large and "fast." . Hit the fairway and you can score. Courteous Staff, great scenery, and pleasant weather , not to mention I was first off the box as a single. A golfers dream. Won't tell what I payed but I feel like I stole this round. Would easily pay double.
Lyon Oaks a Great Experience
When they say fast on their posting they're not kidding.
Started got us out before 7 am and we were done just after 10.
Course was in great shape, just a little soggy after the prior day's storms.
Day with friends
There to golf with a friend who came in from out of town. Had two additional friends join us. Course was in good shape. It is challenging for the occasional golfer. I left several balls there.
WOW...First time golfing this course....nice well maintained Oakland county course.Friendly staff and cordial ranger who kept a good eye on the pace of play.He allowed us to start a little early while a prior 4 some waited for some of their group to show up.Once we got underway played as a 3 some and only had a few holes waiting on the group in front. We did the 18 in 4 hours and the course time on the card is 4.5 hours.Deer/turkey/and the usual rabbits and squirrels were noted during out round.This is a course we will play more in the future for sure.Overall the course from practice areas and tee to green including bunkers were excellent
