Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
So easy Very widely General area,
But winding green and difficult pin layout today.
But I like this course.
Donald Ross Designed Course!!
Great simple course located in Huntington Woods. Too early in the season to give green condition report, but well worth the money to play in omen of the Donald Ross designed course Inn Detroit at very reasonable price!!
Staff was friendly and courteous. No starter to Ben found on the day I played but no problem amongst friendly players here!!
Good course, good staff
Was a nice sunny day. Course was well maintained. Certain holes did have a lot of ground under repairs which is to be expected this late in the season. The fairways and greens were well kept.
Enjoyed the course very much. It was very busy. Greens were great, fairways are good, sand traps were good. Big Donald Ross fan and the course layout was really good. The pro shop/ clubhouse building is about 100 years old and is really cool. They don't want make them like that anymore. I definitely want to play this course again now I know what to expect. The 18th confused me. I thought the green was right behind a sand trap but it was about 30 yards between the trap and the green.
The course was in good condition. The pace of play was good. Course layout was not too challenging. Used golf now to get a good price.
Aside from greens looking like Swiss Cheese & actually having mud/clay within bunkers, fairways could need some TLC.....otherwise for a muni owner by the city ( Detroit ) she’s fair at best & needs lots of work, to bring it back to what it should be.....
Love This Donald Ross Course
Always a pleasure to play Rackham. I've been coming here for 50 years and it's in the best shape ever. Pace was a bit slow due to pokey threesome ahead of us. Ranger talked to them but that made no difference. First-timers thinks the course looks easy but there are some long par fours and the wind always sweeps across the course to add to you challenge.
We arrived 30 minutes ahead of our tee time and they let us go out and play. Pace of play was great, we really didn't see anybody out on the course for a Tuesday morning. Greens were pretty quick, and were in good shape. Tee boxes weren't amazing but they were definitely doable. As a twosome, we finished our round in 3 hours, and I'd definitely come back to play again.
My buddy and I showed up with plenty of time to spare for our round. The starter proceeded to let two groups of 4 that were late go out ahead of us. This resulted in a log jam and awful pace of play. It took us over 2 hours to get through 5 holes! The ranger was cruising right by the slow groups and never said a word. Eventually we just skipped a couple holes to get a head of the mess. I've played there many times and had the same issues. The value for money at this course is pretty terrible.
Great course, struggling from all the rain
The course is long, natural and challenging. There has been so much rain the the area over the past month and there are a lot of damaged fairways.
The greens are in great shape, and other than that the course was good.
Being a Saturday in June and a nice day we expected a bit slow of pace, and we had it, 19 took just over 5 hours, we teed off early AM.
One issue we had happen 5 different time was having people hitting into our group and not giving a “fore” warning. That is not a reflection on the course, but they could perhaps have a ranger on duty to address it. Some were extremely close calls.
The course was fair for the average golfer. Wet weather this spring has caused this course to have pretty severe water damage at this point.
Awesome classic Donald Ross Layout
Course has gotten much better over the past year! Looking awesome! Hope to see others checking out this gem.
Over priced and slow
Place will sell as many tee times as people will buy, I’ve left without finishing a round multiple times because it was so slow
