Go another 5 miles to play better courses at same fee

Course is in terrible shape. Pace of play was awful, waited 10 minutes at least after every shot. They over book. Ended up leaving after 6 holes and didn’t even try to get a rain check.

Still love this course

Teeboxes were like a baseball diamond but besides that it is a great course. 2nd hole is one of the hardest holes in Michigan.

Classic 100 year old Donald Ross

First course I ever played on in the 1960s. Played all over the USA since, grew up in the area at Plymouth and telegraph. I’m been back again And excited to see this course is well maintained and improved recently. New bridges , updated banquet area and fences..Greens are small but excellent ,touchy part of town now but never had a problem. This course with alittle not TLC will be the best Detroit has to offer. Hope they continue the improvements!!!!

Unique course, a character of its own.

After arriving the course parking lot, I wasn’t sure I came to right place, the club house is so tiny and run down. After a few holes, I realized it is a very interesting and challenging course. The fairways are well kept and the greens are in excellent shape. Definitely worth the money.

This course is worth the price

Tough course for the price, greens maintained. Holes end up being harder than they look. Love this course.

Best metro Detroit course

You are in the Cody Rouge neighborhood. Hole one is a par 5 that goes along the road. After that you go down into the river valley to a very secluded and hilly course. This place is the best. The vast majority of the holes have cool features and great views. Tee it high and let it fly!
