Old Course, new ways..... Place looks amazing! All new Golf Carts with USB ports, Pro-Shop has a lot of new and cool items! Place is easy to get to and local... Staff have been working hard to make this place better and I am very happy because this course is one of my favorites. It's playable for any person or skill level. Would check out the changes if you get a chance...

The course was is great shape, except the greens need a little work. Other than the greens, my only other gripe was that it was a little over price. $45 on a Saturday Morning seemed like a bit much for the course. Otherwise, the course was great to play with some challenging, but accessible holes. I will definitely be back.

Was great to get out for the first time this year. Perfect spring day. Nice course. Could tell they are working on some stuff for the full swing season to get going.

Enjoy the course and cool being able to see animals from the Detroit zoo!

Great layout.

Great price.

Very slows players all over the course but that's what happens on a 60 degree day late in November in Michigan. All the horrible players were out there for a last hurrah.

Nothing anyone could do about it.

We got behind some slow players to begin. They need a Ranger to police this. Yet the Ranger would not let the group behind us play a fivesome even though they were keeping up. Slow players must be reminded to keep up with group ahead.

First time playing this course and I was absolutely astonished on the condition of the golf course. I love Donald Ross golf courses and the disrespect that the management group of this golf course has done to a Donald Ross course is beyond belief. The green speed of about 7 and condition for Ross greens was something I have never experienced playing a Ross course. The condition of the fairways and the rough was nothing more than complete neglect. Course layout was great.

Great course I've played for over 40 years. Today's round was only marred by two groups ahead who held up everyone. Where are the marshals? Round took an extra hour.

Living in the Royal Oak area, I don't have the greatest public golfing options in the immediate vicinity. Detroit courses are all falling apart and the good courses in Rochester and Oxford are a hike. Luckily, Rackham is right in our backyard. Don't come here expecting anything amazing, but if you are looking for an affordable round of golf on a well groomed track, then Rackham is a good bet.
