Metro Detroit Area Golfers (NO COVID-19, POLITICS)


Recommended Posts

I use Birdiebug and Teeoff.com. Birdiebug is having real problems. This booking was just a freak and was with Teeoff.com.

What happened was they cut the rate for a last minute golfer to 16 bucks. Then the 15% off coupon worked. And because it was at 12:01 I was able to combine those (mostly useless) 10 off reward codes.

Just a pure freak that all those things lined up and I was able to make it to the course in an hour.

I think Greystone, Pine Trace, Links of Taylor and The Orchards are overrated (I'd still have Orchards in the top 10, just not #1). I like that they included Westwynd, I think it's underrated but the

Is it just me or does it feel like the golf month of June really didn't seem to exist this year due to the rain? Before I realized, it's July already without a whole lot of golf played.

I like Coyote fine except 18. Dumbest hole in metro Detroit imo.

The greens are so slow right now on several courses I'm playing. I was told they are letting them grow a bit to help with the heat.

Saw something today I've never seen before. A guy on the 18th tee hits his drive and is looking in the air for his ball.

It was behind him. Never seen anyone actually hit a ball behind themselves, but this guy (against all known laws of physics) accomplished it.

He was quite embarrassed when his playing partners pointed to it, 10 yards behind the tee box.

And no, I do not know how he did it. But I was rather amazed by the whole thing.

I'm a big fan of Blackheath too, but I wish they would get some active rangers. We played today at 11 and it was a 4 hour and 44 minute round.

A few years back, I was playing Blackheath every week for about $20 through Golf Now. Then they stopped letting singles book. Best deal I ever got was $15 for Cherry Creek, booked 40 minutes before the tee time.

Northville Hills is in very nice condition. Quick greens that are rolling very true. It had been a few years since I had played it, but now I remember how good a course it is.

Has anyone played Mystic Creek this year? I played it back in 2017 and it was poorly managed and the course was in fairly rough shape in places.

I've got a buddy that wants to play it, but I don't want to book it until someone gives me the low-down on conditions.

I could set up a round at Lyon Oaks at 12:50 because they have an outing in the morning. Room for you and two more. And, you get my employee rate to boot.

Thanks for the course reports guys. I just bought two passes as it sounds like it worth playing. The guys that designed that (Conroy-Dewling I believe) only did three courses and I really like two of them.

I used to play Mystic all the time, but then something happened out there and they just didn't keep it to the original high standard. It is a very fun course, but Lakes is my least favorite...although I do dig hitting from that hilltop over the lake.

This past week I've played Boulder Pointe in Oxford.   It's definitely worth the drive.   I played the Dunes and Bluffs.   

 

We also played the Links of Novi.    While the course was in great shaped and the rates fair ($32), it's a course I would not repeat.   It was my first time there and it seems like they squeezed 27 holes into the 18 hole layout.   

 

I played Huntmore in Brighton yesterday.   It was in great shape and always a fun layout.   I highly recommend it.

I love Bluffs.  For some reason that 9 just fits my game. 

 

The Huntmore has a thing.  I like it, but have not had a chance to play it this year.  One time we were paired with a couple from Scandinavia and the guy lost his mind and helicoptered his driver deep into the swamp on that strange par 5 (is it 15?) that doglegs left over the little creek.  Totally mild mannered and polite guy that apparently reached some volcano point and just lost it. 

 

I've played Mystic Creek twice in the past month and I must admit, they have greatly improved the course from where it was in 2017.  The greens were actually quick. 

 

Lyon Oaks is in very good shape, but it is very busy.  Weekend tee times are booked solid and weekdays are pretty full too.

Played Huntmore today, as you got me interested in it again.  I'd forgotten about how far you have to hit it to reach a couple of the doglegs.  I hit some good drives from the blues and I didn't get the angle right and had to pitch up before my approach.

 

I do like that course.  The greens were in nice shape and reasonably quick.  Played 18 midday in 3 hours and 34 minutes. 

 

Good course that I wish was a little bit closer.

I always like The Fortress.  How was it?

 

The fortress was awesome! First time playing there. It was in great shape. Not a mind blowing experience, but highly recommend it. It was a great value. Some holes were somewhat forgettable and kind of back and forth. But some fun ones as well. Super easy drive from metro detroit.

Played Fieldstone yesterday, it was in great condition, with nice slick greens. 41+45=86 

Our rate was $35, not bad. Fieldstone is always a good challenge and will test your game!

We played this past weekend also. It was in great shape. They said they aerated over a month ago which is great this time of year. Playing Northville Hills saturday. First time this year, solid track.
