Washtenaw County Golf Course Reviews
By my reckoning, Washtenaw County, Michigan has thirty golf courses, twenty-five of which are either public or semi-private.
Washtenaw County is home to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Other towns in Washtenaw County include Ypsilanti, home of Eastern Michigan University; Saline; Chelsea; Dexter and; Whitmore Lake.
The city of Ann Arbor maintains two courses (Leslie Park and Huron Hills), as does the University of Michigan (the University course, which is right across from Michigan Stadium, and Radrick Farms, on the city’s outskirts). While the University of Michigan Courses are ostensibly only for students, faculty, employees and alumni, I have never had anyone challenge my presence there. Washtenaw County Parks and Rerceation offers a very nice course called Pierce Lake, in Chelsea. Washtenaw County also is the home of one of the Huron-Clinton MetroPark Courses, Hudson Mills. Ypsilanti Township owns a muni called Green Oak.
The remaining courses are public daily fee or private.
My favorite Washtenaw County courses are the University of Michigan course, a fine Alister MacKenzie design; Washtenaw Country Club, which dates to 1899 and is the third oldest club in Michigan; and Green Oaks, which is my home course.
A list of Washtenaw County golf courses follows, with links to my reviews. I have actually played all of the courses on the list (except the private ones as noted) and will fill in the reviews as time permits.
