I have read that this course is in danger of being shut down, and I sure hope it isn't. This is the best place on the planet to introduce children to "real" golf, and it's a heck of a lot of fun for grownups to play, too. Leave your woods in the car. All you'll need is a 9-iron, a pitching wedge and a putter (well, okay, a sand wedge if you must). And a few balls, in case you put one in the Huron River, which runs alongside six of the 18 holes. The distances of the holes are 52 to 110 yards. The course is very scenic and for the most part in good shape. And the best part is the price -- $6 weekdays, $7 weekends, with an extra buck for a pull cart. They'll even rent you a 9-iron and a putter for $1.50. The reason it's good for kids -- the local course rule is that if you aren't on the green in six strokes, put it on the green. Kids as young as 5 can get a taste of what real golf is like, and the grownups get to work on their short game. It's just a blast, and two hours very well spent.
