Located in between Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor, Washtenaw Golf Club, founded in 1899, is one of the most historic clubs in the state of Michigan. The club was private for most of its history, but an ownership change in 2019 turned this venerable layout into one of the area’s best public experiences. The 18-hole course plays 6,512 yards from the championship tees, though there are four sets of tees The club is in the midst of a multi-year restoration and enhancement project, guided by architect Ray Hearn, that includes green enlargements, tree management, and in the installation of some new championship tees. Facilities here include a putting green, small driving range, chipping green, and a large clubhouse, grill and bar, patio and event space.

Hidden Gem

Challenging course. Penalizes you harshly if you don't hit greens, as they are mostly small and very fast. Biggest tip I can give you is keep your ball below the hole. Course was in excellent shape. One of my favorite places to play in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area. Try to play there at least a few every season. Like the updates that the new owners are doing to the course

Great Course

Excellent course with plenty of hilly conditions and undulating greens. If you’re a golfer who likes to shape the flight both ways, this is the course for you! Also, the carts have GPS distance “scopes”.
The greens are very fast if you happen to leave your ball above cups. This was a private course back in the day, so it’s a very interesting layout and even a lamppost which alerts the group behind that you have crossed the bridge on the ninth hole! Great idea.
