FIX THE DARN CARTS
COURSE HAS GPS LOADED IN CARTS AND HAS CONTROL OF CARTS NEAR PATHS AND ON VARIOUS SPOTS. M ULTIPLE TIMES THE CART SHUT DOWN AND SAID RETIURN TO COURSE WHEN WE WERE ON COURSE AND WE HAD TO push THE DARN CART TO GET IT TO RECOGNIZE A NEW LOCATION THAT IT WOULD THEN START TO DRIVE. TWO 60 + GUYS WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS HAVING TO MANUALLY PUSH A CART? WHERE IS MY LAWYER?
CLUBOUSE KIDS SAID YES SOMETIMES THERE WERE PROBLEMS. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU FIX CARTS AND i MIGHT COMEBACK; TOO BAD WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE METRO COURSES.
Great public course. Challenging layout. Superb greens.
Whispering Willows AAA+++!!!
Friendly staff as usual! Fantastic fairways, super fast greens! Pace of play , perfect!! A threesome in front of our foursome played absolutely perfect for our pace! 92+ degrees.. 46 on the front 42 on the back! Play this course, it will test you in all areas! Have fun first and “fore” most!
Nice comfortable community course
For a public course, the greens were in very good shape, fair and reasonable speed. The course layout is mostly open with only a few somewhat difficult holes. Nice, playable course
Beware of rude staff and hovering rangers
The course is beautiful, but everything else just aweful! Rude workers! TERRIBLE AND CONDESCENDING! Ive been to courses all over including private clubs and never been harrassed so much by rangers! This is a PUBLIC course and yet they act as if you're a bum off the street trying to play at a high end private course! The holes are too close together that you almost get hit every other hole and no one yells to warn you. Tons of areas regarded as off limits (aside from the obvious getting too close to the green) in carts and if you get too close your cart shuts down without hardly any warning. I've had two terrible experiences and will not be back! First was about year ago when my sister and I played here. We are both slightly better than the average golfer and have played for years. It was a week day and we had let a group pass us after the first hole so we could play at a relaxed pace since no one was behind us. For the next 4-5 holes a ranger was following us and staring at us BUT NEVER SPOKE TO US making us so uncomfortable that we went back to the club house and got our money back with a manager apologizing. Every time we would round a corner and think he was gone, he was hiding somewhere else! The second bad experience was over the past weekend. The four of us had used a voucher from one of the other livonia courses because we had a golf outing get cancelled. The man at the counter had scoffed at us when we gave the vouchers to him like we were dirty for coming to their course, being very rude. We got on the course to play our 9 holes and had another group of 4 behind us who were playing at about the same speed or we would have let them pass. The ranger passed and asked if we were having fun and we said yes. Then starting at the 5th hole the ranger repeatedly kept circling around us telling us that we were falling behind pace (since they have those new tablets on the carts that tell you that now). We were only 11 minutes behind. I saw him say what I can only imagine was the same thing to the group behind us because they kept picking up their balls on the green afterwards without putting. When we were done I complained to the two young kids at the desk and they couldn't understand why we were being rushed at only 11 min behind pace. But no one came to talk to us. STAY AWAY unless you enjoy being harassed by rangers or rushing through a game of golf (which really, who enjoys rushing? It's a relaxing sport)
I admit to having a similar experience today with stalking rangers and the ridiculous so called "smart carts". With so many other golf courses in the area, I'll pass next time.
New carts with navigation and mapping... BEWARE: Very strict cart rules....
I will never golf at Whispering Willows again due to the strict cart rules. If you like putting your cart in reverse to get out of a 'no go zone' then play here.
Not worth the money.
Livonia has the worst Golf Courses.
A good combination of easy, moderate and a challenging holes. I really enjoyed the layout and will play again soon.
Nice foregiveable course
Course in good shape pace of play slow . Management needs to pair up twosomes to speed up play . I had 3 twosomes and a threesome in from of me . No rangers on the course . But can't expect all that on a public course . Greens were good . Like playing here just can't stand spending 5-51/2 hour round .
Over priced especially in off season
Charging 30 bucks in November to play there on a Friday is typical of this place. One of the slowest courses around and the pace of play is miserable since the rangers just sit there and watch you golf. I was going to play there this Friday but not for 30 dollars plus golf now fees when its a high of 32 degrees. I will play a really nice course Friday instead that will cost the same.
Nice course. Greens were aeriated so they were sandy and bumpy but it has to be done. Good experience.
For a public course it is very well maintained. Challenging and interesting layout. Great value.
Great public course
The course was in great shape and the layout is good with more than a few challenges. Unfortunately, this time around we were stuck behind an outing so we only decided to play 11 holes. It just got to slow, so we came in. Other than that the course was fine. Outings are to be expected this time of year. (Sept) it's just the luck of the draw.
For a city course that gets a lot of play, Whispering Willows is in great shape.
Took an hour for the first hole
Overbooked with a less than caring club house staff
pretty good for a municipal course
I play this course a lot mostly because of convenience. It's near the freeway, it's easy to get a tee time, the staff is friendly, it's usually a quick round, especially during the week. But it's also a very nice course. The greens are almost always faster than they look, there are a handful of really challenging holes and there are some scoring opportunities. I wish it were longer or had another set of tees in back.
