“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Course has a great history and the staff was superb and friendly, but the course was not in the best of shape. Could be the hot summer took its toll and the greens were recently aerated. It as interesting though to know you are playing a course that was basically requested by Edison and hosted Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, Gene Sarazen and built by Donald Ross. It was like playing the British Open in one of those open field course without the wind and rain. Narrow fairways, fluffy rough in the first cut and deep grass after that to play in.

“Old, poor, uninventive.”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

This course has been here for forever it seems and it pretty much looks it. Very basic and bland course that is only maintained as much as it need to get by. There are better public courses in the area.

“Jewel of a golf cousre”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

You would never believe that a course this good would fit in this location. Well taken care of and allows walkers (which can be good and bad). Very small, but fantastic greens!
