Great staff, horrible course

The lady inside the club house was awesome, the starter was great. The course itself was trash. This course needs to be shut down for some serious TLC. The greens were in terrible condition. Spots worn out that changed the direction of the ball. Not worth the money unfortunately.

Horrible Conditions!

From tee box to green this place was in horrible condition. Tee boxes were dirt. Greens were not even puttable, most had huge dead spots all over!

Save your money!

Too Many Leafs!

Willow Run has the potential to be a great nine hole course, unfortunately it leaves something to be desired. When I arrived they were running 15-20 minutes behind and there were no golf carts available. I had to wait until a group finished their round of golf before I got their cart. There was no starter/ranger thus the pace of play was slow. The tee boxes, greens, and fairways need a lot of work, especially the greens. The weather was beautiful but since it was November all the leafs were on ground. It was difficult finding our ball even on fairways. I have seen many golf courses use riding leaf blowers which greatly helps clear the course and allows for golfers to find their ball and keep up the pace of play. I was told by the others I was playing with that the course is usually much nicer at the beginning of the year. That being so, the course needs a lot of care, especially the greens.

Do not golf in the fall season!

Falling leaves covered the fairways, tee boxes and rough. Lost two balls in the leaves, found seven balls while playing. Five balls were found in the fairways. Greens had many browned out areas and mud areas where there was no grass at all. Have golfed here before, when there was better conditions. It can be a fun course........but not today!

Practice

First time playing course, and it's been several weeks since last play. With that said, this course is good for stepping back in or keeping edge if need to get some swings in. Course needs help and one can see that grounds crew working on that. Overall, not bad, would and weather permitting, will play again.

Good Value........Good Course

Was hesitant to come after reading earlier reviews but was glad i did..........I have worked on the maintainence side of the business and could tell that the tees,fairways,and greens had all been recently aerified which should bode well for them moving forward. The greens were by no means fast but they putted pretty true...........everything had been mowed out on a Monday which to me is very impressive for a small operation...........Friendly people inside and lots of beer choices..........I will definately be back

My favorite golf course!

Willow Run golf course is one of the best golf courses I have played. I have been playing there since I was in high school and it never disappoints! The staff is super friendly and helpful, and they make you feel so welcome. You can't beat the prices or the amazing course layout! I would definitely recommend this golf course for anyone looking to have a great time!

Course was in terrible god awful shape. Tee boxes were dirt. Fairways were rock hard. And greens were the worse greens I’ve ever seen. $24 was a rip off.

Just horrible

So my buddy booked us on this course. Let’s call him Mike. So mike was like, we have a tee time. I’m like, cool. Then I looked at the reviews of this place. I thought people were being pompous af with the reviews. But no, it was really that bad. My buddy, Mike, has been golfing since he was born. He never shot bogey on a par 4. But, with sticks and rocks in the way on the green, what’s a guy supposed to do. Now, I’m sitting here in the emergency room waiting area because my buddy, Mike, had a panic attack and is now depressed. Shame on you, Willow Run.

Not worth it

Just finished 9 holes at this course and the tee boxes and greens are absolutely terrible, grass around the greens were basically half mud half grass. Fairways weren't great either but somewhat playable. Every putt the ball looked like you were putting on rocks it was jumping so much. Definitely will not be back it's not even worth the $22

Greens

I've played this course many times in the past, however, this is the first time i have seen it in this condition. The Greens and tee boxes were in terrible shape. Unsuitable for play. We disappointed.
