I live in Dearborn and play here often. The course is fairly straight forward and a great place to practice. A friend and teed off at 10 am and completed our round at 12:30. I booked a HotDeal on GolfNow for $20 per guy (plus fees). Not a bad price, but a little higher than I am used to paying here ($16 plus fees).

My only criticism is that the tee boxes were very hard and dry. It was difficult to find a level spot to place a tee easily.

I'm glad this course is back on Golfnow, I really enjoy playing here. Now that I can build up points and get discounted hot deal tee times, I'll probably play here more often. Nice challenge. but I like all the par 3's, hitting lots of greens from off the tee is a HUGE confidence builder.. Stop by and sink #deezputts

Course is well kept. It's an executive course. Great place work on your irons. Pat 3 vary in length and obstacles. Love playing. Only downside is the continuous par 3 can create slow play. Not a lot can be done about that. But Dearborn Hills is worth the trip.

Pretty good round of golf here. I play it about twice a year on average. Every time I go there is a lot of water about. The greens are firm but do provide a challenge. The staff is friendly as heck but they need to do a little better job at communication. You have to call to get greens fees which is annoying for the golfer on a budget. Overall its a good round but not one that is super memorable. I did have a good time though so I can't be that mad.

The greens are the fairway...rough is horrible like no one has cut it for at least 2 weeks. Spent more time looking for our balls then actually playing the course. You get on the green and the ball is not rolling truly. This course will definitely destroy your game if you play it.

Maybe this was true before the new manager took over. Chip,I think his name is does a beautiful job at keeping the course in tip-top shape.

Maybe you should try the course again.

The course was not ready for the golf season because the fairways were not prepped, the grass was tall (lost balls), and the grounds wet. We played the front nine but was told the back nine was in much worst shape and not advisable to play. Few golfers on the course should have been a clue it was not a good golf day on this course. We've golfed on this course before later in the season but not in these conditions. I should have called the course to ask about the condition of play before reserving or there should be a system in place to forewarn golfers the course is not ready. Disappointed this time. Would have given it a four under normal conditions even though the course is short.

Was probably the first week they were open this year so I wasn't expecting much as far as conditions are concerned. Staff was friendly, was $17 with a cart for 9. Ended up playing the back 9. Lost two balls on the course.... they were both plugged into the fairway on both par 4s. All in all if you are just looking to swing the club at a "par 3" course it's the place to go. Steer clear if your looking to use anything other than your irons!

Dearborn Hills has 12 par 3s and 6 par 4s so you get a lot of practice with your irons/hybrids. The par 3s range from about 140 to 220 so you get to use a lot of the clubs in your bag. Front 9 greens had been aerated which is something I know has to be done but I wish it could be made known prior to booking tee times.

Hello, this is a great course to practice your short game. It's made up of mostly par 3's with about 4 or 5 par 4's mixed it. Course is very clean and very well maintained. I will definitely be playing this course again.

My uncle and I played 18 holes in about 3 and a half hours on a Friday afternoon. The course has it's fair share of hazards, especially if you play the black tees. The black tee boxes and surrounding area could be better kept. There were some very tall bushes near the tee boxes that unintentionally make the tee shots more difficult than necessary. The other tees were well maintained. Overall it was an enjoyable 18 holes.

This was probably one of the best maintained courses I have ever played that wasn't extremely expensive to play. The greens were fast. The layout was good, apart the length. This course has an inordinate number of participants 3s. And you don't need your driver for most of the day. But despite all of this it was a good challenge and fun experience.

Before I get to the obvious I would say that the course is in great shape. The greens were perfect and the fairways were cut nicely and cleaned off. The staff was very friendly and the course itself is very nice. My issue was with the incredibly slow pace of play. I had to wait at least 15 minutes on each hole and I also had 2 groups following me the entire time so I can only imagine how much they waited. I am a patient player, but having to wait for every shot the entire day really took away from the enjoyable day. I saw the ranger out quite a bit, but the pace never seemed to improve. I understand it being a Friday with great weather, but every man has his limits.

The course was very accommodating to new players - having a very easy layout, extremely friendly staff, and competitive pricing (GolfNow.com)

Really the only con I have is that they may need a starter/ranger. I'm also not sure if they allow it or not, but there was a 5-person group taking their time, which held up about 3 groups ahead of me... I ended up skipping a few holes ahead just to finish on a reasonable time.

I know it's nice outside and you want to spend time with all your buddies... nonetheless, play ready golf and your 18-hole round wouldn't be 5.5 hours long...
