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.

Tough greens demand precise approach shots to have a chance at birdie/par. A fair amount of ground under repair from weather damage. Would be nice if this course could inject some money into it and really restore this Donald Ross design to it’s full potential. Overall value is fair for the weekend. No issues with pace of play early in the morning. For Metro Detroit you can do better but you can also do a lot worse.

If you are looking for something quick, in and out, rackham is your best bet. A good central southeast Michigan location. There were some wet zones considering it rained the day prior. I give it 6/10 score

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.

The course was in great shape overall, except the greens needed a little help. They’re doing a great job with what they’ve been given. Besides the greens, my only other gripe would be the price. $45 for a Saturday Morning is a little much for that course. Otherwise, a great course with some challenging, but accessible holes.

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!
