Rouge Park - Continues to Improve

I’ve played this course through the years and agree that this course has great potential to improve. The greens were moderately fast and the fairways well maintained. The mosquitoes can be an issue as management failed to address the issue in a timely manner. The service (staff and marshals) were very helpful and that in itself makes me want to come back - The course will continue to improve and they’ll remember to take care of those bugs..

Hidden sleeper

The course was in awesome condition. It’s a little confusing to find, and the outside is it marked terribly well as far is finding where to go to the first tee. The course layout was very nice and the course was challenging and I will definitely return to play there again.

Staff doesn’t care about your tee time

I’ve played here twice. This will be my last time. Both times my tee time came and went while waiting for the staff to show up. Didn’t even offer me a discount for teeing off a half hour after my booked tee time (both instances). This is a fun course, however the staffs attitude towards its patrons puts it on my no golf list from here on out.

Great challenge

Always love playing this course. Have to place your ball strategically on a number of holes in order to score. This is one of a few courses I could play everyday

Very fun course for the price

This course was a pleasure to play. The holes were unique and interesting. The course was very reasonably priced and in terrific shape. My only suggestion for improvement would be some more signs to help find your way around. As a first timer it was tough to find some of the tees. All in all it was a terrific experience and I will play this course again in the future.

Fun Par 3's

Overall cool course. Pretty good condition with paying $23 for a round in Detroit. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Course layout was a tad goofy, as my playing partner and I had to ask couple groups if we were going the right way. The greens were consistent and fun. The hole layouts were my favorite part. Each hole felt like it had some unique quirk to it beyond just a simple "dogleg left". Some of the par 3's, in particular, almost felt absurd but made for an interesting round.

Under construction in 2020

It should be noted that this course has a massive irrigation project underway. The signature 11th hole has a temp green in the middle of the fairway and the tee boxes for one of the holes on the front is completely closed. I am glad they are upgrading but I will avoid it for a bit. It is still very inexpensive, and a great course to gain experience.

MUST TRY

Don’t mind the scenery coming into the rouge as the course itself has a great series of holes (numbered wrong but easy to follow) even an interesting adventure in the carts! $8 for 18 compared to all local courses charging $15. Several long par 5s, couple dog legs with large waters to cross, and some cool par 3s that involve some challenging shots. All in all will be golfing again forsure
