October 2021 Whitmore Lake Golf Links

I had lunch and drinks at the course before , and after, my 9-hole round. It was a bit difficult to get started with the Pro Shop / Cart guy covering two positions. The starter was very friendly, and helpful. The course was in very good shape, especially for early October. We played nine holes in just over 2 hours! We weren’t pushed, and didn’t have to wait long on any tee box. I would play this course again.

Better then the last few years

The last few rounds I’ve played this course have been horrid. I decided to give it another shot. It has improved but it’s still in rough shape. The entire course was soaked like we had flooding when there hasn’t been any rain in a week. Cups hasn’t been moved in days and weren’t cut, balls were just rolling over the entire cup. It’s an average course at best, a step up from the cow pasture courses out here but nothing to brag about.

Amazingly friendly staff. Beautiful course. Front nine is easy, back nine will eat your lunch.

The course is beautiful, and the staff are all so friendly. Playing there is definitely a tale of two halves. In all fairness, the extremely friendly starter warned me that the back nine was much more difficult than the front. And boy was he correct. I had a fairly enjoyable front nine, shooting more or less appropriate to my handicap, but the back nine absolutely tore me up. The lesson is don’t attack the back nine at all. Play for pars and bogeys, or you run a high risk of losing quite a few golf balls. Anything less then a 100% perfect shot on the back nine results in a lost ball, guaranteed. Additionally, the tee box on number 13 is utter nonsense. They should try to turn that into grass in some way.

An excellent course.

We went after a rain at 11:30, so we were lucky. No traffic, we’ll maintained fairways and greens. There are many hazards on the back nine which was fun. They let us play nine more at a reduced price. Overall, a very good experience.

Back 9 is fun and interesting, good overall

1st time playing this course. Front 9 is a bit too much back and forth and you'll have folks from other holes in your fairway and you'll be in other fairways with wayward shots. Front nine easier than back, which is cut thru woods after 10, tough tee shots, and from the tips, a lot of carry to make fairway... lovely drives thru woods and doesn't feel like southeastern MI on the back. Worth the play just for the back 9 in my opinion, and I want to go back to score better on that 9 now that I know the course! Having course knowledge helpful. Course has tough par 3s. If you choose to play the tips because it's short, beware of long carry holes on back 9... 16 and 17 I believe... you'll need to have over 210 carry at least as 3 of us hit good drives and couldn't carry it. Play the blues on those holes if you know you can't carry or combination blacks/blues from the get go.

Nice Course for the Money

Bring some extra balls if you can't hit your drive straight! Your tee shot sets up the rest of your play to the hole. Several dog leg holes and a few blind shots that will be very challenging if you haven't played the course before so play close attention to the scorecard. You'll want to bring some bug spray for back nine holes if you're smart. All in all it's a nice course and fun challenge with a friendly staff. Reasonable prices also! Have Fun!
