The Detroit News has a quick review of the Rackham Golf Course. The reviewer like it. I played a few years back and was mostly unimpressed. There’s also a bit of a misstatement in the article: while the course originally was a Donald Ross layout, it really hasn’t been since they drove the highway through. The expansion of I-696 resulted in the loss of 1, 2, 3 and 9, and led to a subsequent rerouting. Rackham thus is a Donald Ross in name only. I have a friend who played before the damage was done and in his opinion, it’s only a ghost of its former glory.
I’m surprised the News reporter didn’t mention the highway rerouting. Maybe he doesn’t know [insert commentary about the state of journalism here].
The clubhouse is still very cool, though.
