Huron Hills Golf Course (734-794-6246)
Michigan golf course review
Huron Hills in Ann Arbor is an 18-hole Thomas Bendelow design that is short on length with a great variety in hole design. The layout is sister course to Leslie Park, and part of
the A2 Golf, which is proud supporter of the Natural Area Preservation Unit of Ann Arbor.
Huron Hills features a simple clubhouse with pro shop plus snack area serving hot and cold sandwiches, snacks and beverages There is a practice green adjacent - no driving
range is on property. On course 150 yard poles double as directional devices, and 100 and 200 yard markers are also posted on par fours and fives. Golfers will have to eyeball
the pin placements as no hole marking system is utilized.
The front seven holes are fairly flat and present a nice warm up for the remaining holes that play across the street. There are 3 holes with water hazards on the front, and none on
the back. Sand bunkering is understated, with 20 sand traps situated about the course. The 11 holes that play across the street are extremely undulating with significant doglegs -
a completely different design than the initial 7 holes. There are numerous elevated tees and raised greens. While the front 7 is highly playable for beginning golfers, the
remaining holes demand shot placement and a good short game.
Land in regulation and good scores can be had as the smallish greens are only mildly sloping. There are 2 sets of tees that play to 5072 yards/115 slope and 4446 yards/107
slope. There are WEE tees on the front seven that play to 1231 yards - ideal for beginners and junior golfers.
Looking at the slopes, golfers might think this course is very easy - and those familiar with the layout might find it so. First time visitors may be surprised by the challenge of the
latter holes. Some of the par threes especially have little or no room behind the greens - making accurate chips and approaches a must. For more info, visit our alpha page for the
