Whispering Willows - Nice Place to Play

I like to play Whispering Willows golf course in Livonia, MI. Some of the holes are challenging with wood on both sides of fairway. I would recommend this golf course to my family and friends.

First Round

Course just opened but had no tee markers . Pace was good which surprised me. Greens were slow but its good to have a course opened after long winter.
