Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Solid Ross and Mathews Course
Course lost about 7 holes to 696 expansion in the 80s, Mathews did new holes and greens do not fit in. Back nine and several holes on front are still Ross and have a lot of character.
Conditions are what I would expect for a Detroit public course. Layout is on mostly flat terrain, several holes on back nine close to zoo have some movement. Clubhouse is amazing and on national historic register and if you go in had a copy of Donald Ross’ plans.
I started playing golf again after a 20+ Years hiatus. When I use to play regularly we played Rackham quite often, mostly twilight because the price was right. The course was nice and seemed better kept than now. With the condition of the course I won’t be going back. The course is a shell of its former self.
Save your money and go somewhere else
Showed up 15 minutes before tee time, group of 18 was let in front of 2, big group was not there 40 minutes after that. Ranger was disrespectful and not helpful at all. Just a waste of time that place
Tale of two 9's - TOUGH Greens
Front 9, no holes designed to use driver aside #1 par 5. Back 9, more direct, some fairway pot bunkers. Played on a Sunday and it was PACKED and delayed. Only complaint is that those greens are pretty hard and yield not many birdie tries unless you stick it within 7 feet.
Over 5 hours to play.... called pro shop, they didn't seem to care... many tees appeared chewed up... could use TLC and water...
Torn up in alot of spots, but nice course to play. Hit and miss if its going to be a slow round, but be prepared for a slow one.
1st-Time & Hoped For Better
Course we’ll maintained with greens running true. They pack the tee-times so be prepared for a slow round and don’t expect too much from the course rangers who are clearly visible, but fail to move things along. When tee-boxes have 2-3 tee-times backed up you know you’re in for a slow one!

This place is trash in every aspect. Rude desk lady, snail pace of play on a Monday morning I played 8 holes and just walked off because it took 3 hours. Do better Rackham.
Old school Muni
This course just has something special about it. I love the old school Art Deco clubhouse/pro shop. The greens were fast, course was well maintained and I’m looking forward to playing the third and final Detroit municipal course soon!
The greenest course I've seen in months
The course has been kept up during this extended hot and dry stretch. There were very few beat up areas and the greens were great.
Everything they had control over was very good to great.
But it is a a little bit on the expensive side.
$47 to ride, $40 to walk.
I hadn't played there in almost 10 years and it seems to have improved. I'll return gladly.
