Washtenaw Golf Club
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.

Continues to improve with gradual restoration
Since it went public, Washtenaw is already on the short list of best public-access courses in Ann Arbor-Ypsi (along with Eagle Crest). I'm very pleased to see the new owners making all the right moves with their restoration project. Since playing it last summer, they have done a lot of tree management and are working to expand many of the greens. I was also tipped off to some new back tees being planned in the future to challenge the young pups. Since they can't close the course down to make these improvements all at once, the project will be gradual over several years. Nevertheless, the course already feels more open than it did (including the 15th and 18th holes) and the turf and playability is also benefitting already. There are some great par 5s out here, which is surprising considering it's such an old course, and some clever green complexes. The vibe here is awesome. Very welcoming after a century of being private. Keep up the great work, y'all!
First time playing
We started out after 12:00 the first 9 holes were trampled a bit but the back nine were great. The staff was super friendly. Well kept course some bumpy cart path areas. We had a great time.
I think pace of play would benefit from more of a ranger presence. We had a 4 some ahead of us with 2 players that didn’t belong on the tips trying to play them resulting in an open hole ahead of them.
We understand that pace of play is key to your game and we work hard to deliver a great golfing experience for everyone. We hope you'll give us another shot soon.
Great shape and greens fast and true
Despite the weather being wet last few days course was in phenomenal shape and greens were fast.
We're glad you had a great round of golf at Washtenaw Golf Club!
Feels like a Country Club
Wastenaw Country Club was a pleasant surprise. What can I say....everything was excellent here. The course was in great shape and the greens were respective and rolled well. The carts were brand new and it felt like a Country Club. Definitely will go back.
Go. Play. Now!!
Do not hesitate. First time playing the course. Went to college in the area and was a private club then. For the price I paid, $35, it’s a no brained. Greens were the best I’ve played all season.
We hope you'll tell your friends and come back soon!
Thank you for the positive review! Washtenaw Golf Club appreciates your business.
Enjoyable Course Needs a Ranger
One belligerent foursome of one elderly guy with 3 ladies really slowed up the pace of play. They were ignoring golf etiquette and not waving through faster groups behind them. Three groups skipped a hole on the back 9 to bypass them. A ranger would have helped
Otherwise it was a really good course layout with enough challenges for most levels of play

Zach was inviting and it was a great experience
Zack Szawara was a pleasure to speak with when coming in for the first time. I have been a member at Country Clubs in the past and have played at many different private and public courses and I felt like a member talking with Zach. The course was fun and challenging. Hole #8 was a challenge, like I was warned, and walking away with a bogie was actually rewarding. Will definitely return to play here even though I am an hour away. Thank you for making me feel at home.

Love this course. Greens are tricky and sometimes blazing fast. Today normal speed. Tough pin placements 2steps from the edges. Great course will let you know how good your game is.
