Playing Centennial Acres

Playing Centennial Acres

I recently added a new course to my list of hundreds played in Michigan: Centennial Acres in Sunfield, near Lansing.

Centennial Acres isa 27 hole facility. I played the Sunrise and Midday nines. The other nine is called “Sunset.”

The course was thoroughly pleasant and well kept. The Sunrise nine is mostly parklands, while the Midday was more wooded, with some interesting elevation changes. Water and marsh on the edges on both nines never came into play.

The first nine holes date to 1979; the second was constructed in 1984. The final nine was built in 1999. Warner Bowen is credited with the original design. Bowen has a handful of other course designs to his name, including (according to his obituary) Glenkerry, Holland Lake, Schuss Mountain, Rolling Hills and Indian River Golf Club.

For $20 walking, it was a tremendous value. Area players are lucky to have it available.

I’ll have a full review in due time.
