Lower Huron Golf Course at Willow Metropark Golf Club
Great layout. A lot of character. Also some elevation changes. Putting and chipping greens. Driving range.
The course was in real good shape. Played long do to recent rain. Greens were healthy but a little slow. Lots of undulations. I was able to be aggressive and made a lot of putts. I only remember one green with some bare spots. Course has a lot of bunkers and they were well maintained.
Enjoyed the round.
Played Willow today for the first time in a few years. I (we) could not be more disappointed. This course is in major decline! The greens are bumpy and severely damaged making putting a “hit and hope” affair. Grass on the fairways and tee boxes are covered with weeds. Many areas show turf damage, patches of dirt, etc. The pace of play was ridiculously slow. We were informed by staff that new metro park management has decided to remove all rangers/player assistants leaving course etiquette up for grabs! It’s shameful to show such disregard and disrespect for the game and for players, especially at prime time on a sunny Saturday in August! And charging full price for a 5+ hour round for a threesome! I (we) will not return and advise others to do the same until they make drastic improvements to this course.
This course has all you need to sharpen your skills as a golfer. Length and contour. Nice course with happy people.
Staff was great!
Course was in great condition, Bob was great to talk to while on the course, he helped speed up the pace of play!
Really like the course layout. Greens were in nice condition. Some of the fairways looked like they had some water damage. Will play next year when we are in the Detroit area.
Great course/bad luck
Due to recent torrential rains, Willow Metro Park Golf Course had several areas of water damage. But the damaged areas did not affect the fun of playing this course. And I’m sure this great layout will return to A-1 shape soon.
Every club in the bag is used when you play Willow.
**WARNING - Course is under water June 2018**
There was no warning until arriving at the course that half of it is underwater. 3 holes are converted to par 3 because the holes are unplayable. Cart path only. All the holes had a few puddles to half the hole under water. Lost at least 5 balls in puddles or buried in mud.
Course specific: the front nine is very flat and only mild interest. The back nine is much better with elevation changes and much prettier holes. There were multiple players blasting music and saw a group of 7 on one hole. There is obviously no supervision of this public course. Warning, play at your own risk! Not worth $25 and I don't recommend this course while it is wet.
The course was in good shape but green are slow and many wet areas on the ciurse.
Good Course, Good People
I have golfed at Willow more than a few times now, and I will say I always enjoy it. The views are very nice during certain times of the year, and the staff has always been friendly and accommodating.
The course was a little wet this past weekend, but that is expected at this time of year.

Very nice course to play. Excellent condition, I like the layout, there are some tough holes and some not so tough holes but the entire course requires you to concentrate on your golf swing and hit good shots or you will be in trouble, every hole. Great greens and fairways and tees, for the price this course is hard to beat.
Beautiful course and layout. A bit on the long side but very enjoyable to play. Feels like you are playing a northern Michigan course.
All things considered, this course is a great value. The price was very inexpensive, the fairways and greens were in super condition.
I played courses this year that cost $45.00, that were in this shape.
