Underrated

Terrific layout and as well conditioned as I’ve seen the course in years .The Golden Fox is one of the most underrated courses in the Detroit area. The staff is also extremely friendly and they add to a great experience. Highly recommended

Great Conditions, Interesting Layout

Played with new friends in a new state. I am new to Michigan golf but I found the Golden Fox a great course for a fair rate. Checking in was easy and the pro-shop staff was friendly and helpful. They didn't provide much insight on the course and didn't have a yardage book that I would have expected at a course of this quality.

The putting great was large and well maintained. They allow chipping which is always a plus. The range was large and long with plenty of targets at all distances. The balls were of good quality.

Getting out on the course was a bit of mess as they had a tournament so they sent us off the back. As we got ready to tee off the starter rushed us off insisting that we were lagging behind even though we were teeing off 15 min late.

Once on the course the GPS was good and after getting used to it very helpful.

The tees were lush, flat and well maintained. Even the par 3s had good coverage and only mild divot damage. The fairways were lush and well maintained. They were tightly mowed but not thin. With some moisture there wasn't a lot of run on the ball and some dirt or mud. The carts didn't have good fill bottles and so there were quite a few unfilled divots. The rough wasn't very high which actually made the course tougher for long hitters as the ball would run into the natural areas and high grasses.

The greens were excellent. They were soft and receptive but quick with lots of undulations. I particularly liked some of the chipping areas and well maintained fringes.

Nice Course Fairly Wide Open

First time playing Golden Fox. Enjoyed the course. Some room off the tee on most holes. 4th hole is severe dog leg right. Definitely want to aim at black and white marker in fairway which is only about 165 yards from white tees. Easy to get blocked out right and plays long if you bail left.

Great course and great shape.

Played as a single and only had to wait on a few holes. People please fix your ball marks. I was fixing many ball marks On the green as I had time since playing as a single. The twosome behind me finally caught up with me and I asked if they wished to join me, they declined. The group in front of me was taking the game way to serious. On one hole they teed off and I see one coming back to the tee box!! He said his ball went OB and had to re-tee !!! Are you kidding me!!! Just take a drop and keep the round moving!!!

Fox Hills Golden Fox

First time playing the course. The course was challenging and in good condition. Need to keep it in the fairways or you will find plenty of trouble. The bunkers were in nice condition and the greens were decent and quick. I played in the afternoon and the rate was good for a course of this quality. The GPS system in the cart is very nice.

The cons: Several blind shot holes and out of bounds areas that punish golfers with returns to the tee box instead of lateral hazard drop areas. First time players need to be aware of these areas. The concessions were slow, don't have coolers for your refreshments (shopping bags that leak), and a little pricey.

Overall it's a recommended place to play. If I play the course again I'll be more prepared for those trouble areas.
