I appreciate this course for it's availability and it's value.
Wonderful and cheap in the heart of Detroit. Great for a quick 9 holes. Had to ding a star for course conditions because the third hole was literally underwater.
Great Starter Course
Great little starter course for a new golfer to learn the ropes. Flat greens with few obstacles to deal with.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COURSE
This is not even a golf course. There are no cut fairways, The greens are not cut right, Some greens do not exist and are just a hole cut in the middle of the fairway. Would never waste a dollar here again!
Hmmm where to start
Not even worth $8 to play. Perfect course for a tough mudder, the fairway which was no different from grass in a forest wasn't cut. I kid you not, the fairways had grass 11" all the way through. The first hole I lost 3 balls hitting straight and watching them land. I stand 6'6 tall and even with a birds eye view couldn't find balls. The greens were no different from being at the beach, No grass all sand. I played 3 holes, lost 7 balls and left.
Save your money
Even for just $10 for nine holes you should save your money.
DO NOT EVER PLAY HERE. The grass in the fairway was so long youd lose balls in it. The greens were made out of dirt. Better yet the back nine was completely overgrown and unplayable and we didn't even know until we drove over there. This place is a disgrace to the game of golf. VERY SAD!
Vargo must go!!!!!
Played the first time here this year after a bad experience last year. All the prior reviews are correct,this is no longer a playable golf course.
Balls will get lost in the middle of the fairway, the greens have more dirt than grass and are unputtable.
It's such a shame as this was a nice course for seniors and kids when run by American Golf but Vargo has let it go. I truly believe they are trying to keep people away so they can show the city it doesn't produce enough revenue to remain open. I could keep this course in better condition with just the equipment in my garage.
Vargo has also let Chandler Park run down compared to when American Golf ran it. Vargo Golf has got to go!!!!
It's all rough
Pulling up to the clubhouse the afternoon looked promising. After our first tee shots we discovered there was no fairways, all the grass looked like the grass at a poorly kept residence. Most of the greens were bare, very bumpy, and in extremely poor conditions. If you want to go to a course to practice shots on a course instead of a range don't spend more than the price for a bucket of balls. The back nine has been neglected for an entire season which is unfortunate because it was a great hidden gem. Not any more.
Sorry excuse for a golf course
The greens had more brown than green, yet were muddy from the night before. The front 9 had not been cut.
