Adding Three New Golf Courses To The Collection
This past week, I added three places to my golf course “collection”: Monroe Golf Club, Sanctuary Lake Golf Course and Sylvan Glen Golf Course.
Monroe Golf and Country Club boasts a classic 1919 Donald Ross design. Although it is a private club, unaccompanied guests can get tee times. I really enjoyed my play; I love old school course designs.
Sanctuary Lake has an unusual design for a Michigan golf course. From a high vantage, it looks for all the world like a classic links. The “heather” however, is actually mostly marsh grasses. On the ground, it looks “linksy” as well, but the marshy ground plays soft, rather than hard and fast.
Finally, I visited Sylvan Glen in Troy. It’s a nicely kept parklands style muni.
I’ll have a complete review of all of these in the near future. In the meantime, check out all of my Michigan Golf Course Reviews.
