Great Old Course, Well Maintained

Arbor Hills is a well maintained, traditional style golf course. I thoroughly enjoy golfing well designed, older courses, especially when they are as well maintained as Arbor Hills. Basically, any link to Donald Ross or A.W. Tillinghast will guarantee you an enjoyable round, you just need to appreciate the subtlety of what a historic course like this offers. I think its simplicity and straight forward design is what makes it a pretty great course. Lenawee Country Club and Jackson Country Club are definitely nicer courses, however they are still private. Arbor Hills, as a former private country club, offers a similar playing experience with very good course conditions at a great price. I highly recommend you play it - it's not pretentious, it's just a nice course that offers a refreshing step back in time.

Old time golf

This is a fantastic old time golf course, tees very close to the greens, tree lined fairways, smallish greens, only a few traps around the greens. The way golf used to be way back when.

We loved this course. It's tight! Put your driver back in the bag for most of the round. I loved the greens, nice condition and a nice break. I'd play this course again and again.

Bonus, one of the best tasting apples I've ever picked 'in the wild' was on the back nine. Sweet and tart and juicy and flat out terrific!

A Good Course.

A shorter course that puts a high value in shot making. It provides an interesting variety of hole that need to be played between your ears before you tee up your ball.

not bad if you can get a hot deal.

Regular rates are overpriced, but it is a descant course. Course is kept up pretty well and the greens ran smooth.

Nice course, Nice greens

Not just your run of the mill golf courses. Not the best but better than most. For $10 bucks, 18 holes w/cart using golfnow you just can't beat it.

Sunday Round

I played in the afternoon on Sunday, the course wasn't that full so we moved pretty quick. Overall the course looked good, some of the tee boxes were unkept and also uneven which provided for some awkward drives. Additionally, the bunkers were not standard across the holes, some had decent sand depth and consistentency while others only had hard packed dirt. However, the greens rolled pretty well and had decent pace. Lastly, some of the trees need to be trimmed, I don't think the course designer envisioned branches hanging over most of the fairways making straight in shots impossible. If I knew I had to be on the right or left side of the fairway to have a shot in when I tee'd off I wouldn't have minded, but going in blind and landing in the fairway and still having to contend with branches wasn't fun.
Overall, I'd play again.

The course was amazing!

As a first time gold player Arbor Hills made it a easy game to pick up! They have a very helpful staff. They worked with me learning how to go about getting a cart, renting a bucket of balls for the driving range, and even the returning process for the cart. The course was rather diffcult because of the various holes that all including hitting your ball over water. As a first time player, I just basically had to start on the other side which was rather discourging. Besides that everything was more than I could've asked for!

A truly nice course. Front nine is challenging and the back is set up to score low

Arbor hills was once a fine country club that went public due to changing economy. A great course for the money. A must play for anyone with 25-30 minutes.

good course, even better prices

Good course, in good shape. For the price, this is a must play. I spent $2 more for a fantastic 18 holes as opposed to a 9 hole course needing work.

Not too busy Great Condition

This was a local country club prior to becoming a public course. Well maintained very difficult pin placements on the day we played. We enjoyed the challenge each pin gave us.

Great course! Always deals!

Arbor Hills is moderately challenging. Fairways are relatively wide however if you miss to the right or left you are likely forced with a punch out on every hole. Top 4 course in Jackson which is a complement considering the competition in the area.

Careful with the snakes near the river on Hole #4!

Great place to play

The golf course use to be a private country club. since it has been opened to the public, it has been a great place to play. We hold our Annual Charity Fund Raising Tournament there every year.

The greens putt true, in great shape.

The course is in well maintained condition, beautiful trees, pleantiful sand traps and some water. Very challenging but an average golfer should be able to break 100 easily. This course is easily accessible.

The greens are in great shape.

The course has 5 par fives and 5 par threes. Only 3 sets of tee boxes blue white and red. The course has a good blend of long short and medium holes. The greens are just as good as you would expect to find at any Country Club. It is a very good course for a very good value.
