Classic Ross, Routing Gem

Western Golf and Country Club is another classic Donald Ross gem in the metro detroit area. Routing of the course is fantastic. 14 of 18 holes route along the Rouge River that dissects the middle of the property. Ross did a great job of making the hazard in play on so many holes. topography is very interesting for a piece of land in Redford, lots of peaks and valleys. Players can expect a good amount of raised greens, which is a good test for the approach game. Greens, as to be expected at a private club, were firm and true. Compared to some other Ross gems in the area the greens are a bit subdued with most featuring the classic Ross back to front slope with a single knob or two. Course is a lovely walk. Highlight holes included the par 4 4th, par 5 15h, and the par 4 17th.
