Has that old course European seaside feel

This course has it's challenges. It's well worth the price. It reminded me of some of the courses around the British Isle's. Depending on the days, expect back ups, and ALWAYS expect to be paired up if you are in a two-some or solo..

Nice track

Have played here several times, and have a better understanding of the course. Where and when to be aggressive comes with time. It’s in pretty good shape other than the greens were recently aerated. Would recommend this course.

Best maintenance in the area

Great layout. Some of the most unique and tricky greens. Even after rain, this course manages to stay dry and in perfect condition. Always seems like its too cheap for the amazing views and conditions.

Good course

I’ve played here many times, and usually the pace of play is very slow….today was different! We were able to complete our round in 4 1/2 hrs, which isn’t horrible. The greens were in great shape and considering the volume of rain we’ve had recently, the course was in really good condition. Maybe they’ve finally figured out how to space out the tee times and not overbook?!

Pace of play

The golf course is in great shape, but the pace of play was pretty bad and nothing was done to speed the slow players up

Good price, but a 6 hour round

Middle of the day on Labor Day had us waiting 15-20 mins on the front 9 for each hole. Pace of play was awful for a course like this. Back 9 played much quicker but that was 3 hours after we started the front. Will be tough for me to come back.

Greenskeeper is the best

Great course - I’ve gotta say, the Greenskeeper is killing it out there with manicured fairways and greens. Feels like you can putt from 30 yards off the green.

Pin Placements

On 08/01/2021 the green sleeper got his revenge. I never saw so many tough pin locations. It was very challenging. I really enjoyed my round.

Hidden Gem

I had played Black Heath about 15 years ago and had an enjoyable round of golf and although the course was young, it had great potential to mature into something special. I hadn’t played the course since, but when I had people visiting from out of town and was looking for something reasonable with available tee times that would work for me, I picked Black Heath hoping it would be the right combination of quality golf at a great value. It proved to be a great choice and made for a great day of golf! My group consisted of both novice and experienced low handicap players. Everyone absolutely loved the course, layout and condition of the course! Now the clubhouse and amenities are nothing to write home about, which probably accounts the incredibly reasonable price, but the staff is friendly, courteous and helpful! This might be the best hidden gem in southeast Michigan! I highly recommend golfers of all levels to give this course a try, you won’t be disappointed!!!

Painful!

We played on a Thursday at 11:30 p.m. There were 2 groups on the tee box when we got to it (we were on time) and things got slower from there. We waited on every shot and every hole. There were no rangers telling groups to play faster. It took well over 5 hours to finish.

Good solid course.

Fun course. Greens are beautiful. Fairways and rough look great as well. Some long rough in spots that make it challenging. Overall great course.
