Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Great Course. Long Time Livonia Resident
I’ve lived in Livonia for over 40 years. I’ve played all three courses, Whispering Willows, Fox Creek, Idyl Wyld, many times overs these years. My favorite was Fox Creek until the ash bore killed many of the trees on the course. I still like the course though. Whispering Willows is now my favorite. I like the layout. It is a very nice well maintained course. All three Livonia courses are. There are enough water hazards and trees to make it challenging, but fun. I never get tired of playing these courses. I would recommend these courses to all who enjoy golf.
Great public course
Our league has been here for about 8 years and we've all enjoyed the course. It's been through a lot of changes over the years and it is in really good shape. The greens are usually pretty fast but hold.
All in all, it's a great course for the money. Bar and restaurant are a great additional to it.
Took 5 hours to finish a round. It wasn't like I was playing behind a group of 4 hackers. Everyone at every hole on the course was waiting 5 mins to shoot. I have to believe it was because the course is way overbooked.
Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Whispering Willows. We hope to see you again soon.
This is a followup to a response from last years round.I was criticized for hitting up into a group in front of me and i realize the danger in such that is why i made sure they were just out of my range. Maybe if you would send a ranger out to do his job there would be no issues. Your pace of play here has always been terrible and that is why i will never play your course again..
As for a 3 hour and 10 minute round, where i come from that is not acceptable for a twosome. Maybe your management needs to focus more on managing all aspects of proper etiquette on a course instead of calling out people who complain about the lack of it.
I play whispering willows a couple times a year. This was the best condition I’ve seen it in. Green were fast and the fairways in great condition. For the price you can’t beat it. Only complaint was they should have water available out on the course especially when it so hot. But a ranger did come out and give free water bottles so that was great!
the 2nd and 11th hole tee boxes continue to produce logjams and it never got better thru the round. the carts are over managed with the controls and I had to reverse out of the rough when the cart quit. The rangefinder didn't work and the screen kept flashing, your time is up, return to clubhouse.
Thank you for taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass along your feedback to the staff so they can work to make changes. Thanks for visiting us!
Enjoy Playing Here
I very much enjoy playing this course. It has some challenging holes as well as some wide fairways.
Bad carts, pro greens, bad pin placement
Carts have GPS and will only allow cart path only (course was not wet) and sometimes would allow partial fairway driving before shutting off, forcing you to slowly back up to cart path. Should've just walked! I'm a senior and not able to walk that much because carts wouldn't allow driving to the ball. Also noticed a camera lens on the display monitor (just like the ones on a laptop computer) I guess we were being watched!
The greens were like concrete and most pins were set on a volcano or break point so if you miss, ball rolls off the green!
The ranger was rude!
Our foursome ended up with the worst scores in decades and totally exhausted.
If they paid me $41.00 to play there, I wouldn't do it!!!
Hello. Thanks for the review. We see you rated the course 1-star and are interested in learning what we can do to improve for your next visit. We take single star feedback very serious at our course. Please reach out to our team in the golf shop. We always appreciate the feedback. Thank you for playing Whispering Willows.
Course condition great for public course. 12am tee time great
Course condition great as far as fairways and greens. Only 3 holes cart path only after all the rains. Some tee boxes need to be redone on par threes.
Had noon tee time on Sunday and was expecting slow play. Only 4 and 1/2 hours. Hit it just right I guess.
Nice bar and restaurant there.
Needs a few things, but great course
So my friends and I are the type that we would like to see water more on the course. If there's a consistent presence of a cart girl, we can choose to buy beverages but having water to drink is essential. Especially when it's as hot as it has been. Also, keeping an eye on who goes out in front of who is key. We have played twice this season and have had foursomes out in front of us as a two group. We try not to press, but it's hard not to. Tee boxes, leveling out your boxes and making sure they aren't all dull of divots and uneven would make the experience that much better too.
