Michigan golf course review

Palmer Park Golf Course - Michigan golf course

Palmer Park Golf Course is conveniently located on Woodward and 7 mile, and easy to reach from the East side and West. The 6007 yard par 71 layout features a variety of golf holes and is a pleasant experience for beginners and avid golfers alike. Since 1927, Palmer Park has been home course for many Detroit legends including Motown's Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Four Tops and even Detroit's own heavyweight champ, Joe Louis.

Bunkering is understated on course with a total of 15 sand traps located primarily greenside. Water comes into play on the par four 16th on the left side, off the tee, and the short par four 17th just in front of the tee box. Generally speaking here is very little trouble to be encountered off the tees and driver can be used on the par fours and fives. Green complexes are even with the surrounding terrain allowing bump and run approaches to the fairly flat putting surfaces.

The front and back nine at Palmer Park are seemingly two different courses. The front is truly a city layout, with wide open landing zones and the last two holes playing along Woodward Ave. The back nine is a totally separate experience. As the cart path leads to the 10th tee, the city seems 100 miles away, as the remaining holes are secluded in a scenic woodlands area.

Three sets of tee boxes are marked and measured to distances of 6007 yards with a 104 slope, 5809 yards / 103 slope, and 5259 yards with a slope of 108 for women who choose the forward tees. The course is marked on the fairways from 100 and 200 yards from the center of the green. There are also 150 yard stakes to aim for on all par fours and fives. Red, white, and blue flags indicate front, middle, and back pin positions.
