LINKS AT LAKE ERIE GOLF COURSE (734-384-1177)
Michigan Golf Course Review
The Links at Lake Erie just off the La Plaisance exit of I-75 in Monroe , is a par 72, 18-hole championship course with a links flavor developed over a gently rolling terrain. Though
scattered trees adorn the layout, this course is quite open with plentiful room off the tee and near the green complexes, which often invite bump and run pitches and approaches.
There are no residential properties to contend with along the course, which features mounding that often separates parallel fairways, and perimeter high grasses that present a
traditional Scottish links appeal. There are 31 strategically placed sand bunkers, and water hazards are often a factor, as they affect the tee shots or approaches on 11 of the holes.
The gently raised putting complexes are mildly sloped and medium in size - land in regulation and good scores can be had. Three sets of tee boxes play to distances and slopes
measuring 6669 yards/122 slope, 6168 yards/116 slope and 5182 yards with a slope of 112 from the forward tees. As these slope ratings indicate, this is a player friendly layout -
perfect for mid to high handicappers and enjoyable for beginning golfers, seniors and juniors.
Water and sand come into play enough, to challenge the shots of avid golfers as well. On course yardage markers as positioned at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and sprinkler heads
are measured to the center of the green on all par fours and fives, The scorecards have 6 hole locations which rotate daily - ask the attendant for the day's pin number location.
On property is a full service practice facility, with targeted grass range, short game area with sand bunker, plus putting/chipping green. The clubhouse includes a pro shop plus
restaurant/lounge with lunch menus and dinner specials. There also is a separate banquet/outing room with capacity to host a full outing.
Prices top out at around $40 including cart prime time in 2007. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
