Most Affordable Metro Park in SE MI

Willow Metro is a really fun design that uses dog legs and protected and undulated greens to demand precision both from tee and approach. Just hitting a GIR does not guarantee a par as I 3-putted four holes. I found the greens very challenging to read.

I paid $30 for Sunday late morning which seems like a good deal.

Willow Metro

Tee boxes were in bad shape and pace of play was very slow. 4 hours 50 minutes for the round.

Great value

For $24 played 9 holes with a cart. Course was challenging, great shape, greens were awesome. Carts came with a side wash for clubs and balls, which is a great amenity to have to ensure your clubs are ready for every hole. Cant wait to come back when my game is better, the narrow fairways are me up!

Booking too many golfers

We checked in for our reserved tee time and then two individuals walked up to see if they could play with no reservation and the guy behind the counter told them to hurry to go tee off in front of us. Needless to say, we missed our tee time by ten minutes. If this wasn't bad enough, as we were making the turn to start the back nine, we were cut off by a foursome that was there just to play a twilight nine. We asked why they were allowed to cut in front of us, but got no response.

Nice

The course is solid. I like the views and the it seems well kept. They overbooked my tee time so pace of play was less than desirable. Cart speed was very low and as unimportant as it is to the actual game, it’s convenient. Aside from those two things I enjoyed my round of golf.
