Pheasant Run Golf Club (734) 397-6460
Michigan Golf Course Review
The PHEASANT RUN GOLF CLUB in Canton, Michigan is one of west metros best golf facilities. This 27 hole Arthur Hills design features great conditioning from tee to green and
provides excellent fairway yardage and pin placement information. The practice green and grass driving range are expansive, offering country club type conditions. Pheasant Run
also features a stylish pro shop and clubhouse with a patio and a complete bar and grill. It is a great place for outings.
The course itself is challenging but fun to play. Most of the holes offer fair landing areas, though there is trouble if you stray too far, generally in the form of water hazards and
marsh land. After the opening hole, the front nine plays almost entirely through a residential community. Though play is sometimes tight, the track is nicely laid, with some
especially interesting par threes. The two par 5's are reachable and good birdie opportunities. You should be able to get off to a good start on the front, as the par 4's are relatively
short from all except the championship tees.
The back nine opens with a beautiful but somewhat intimidating par 4, with water in play on both the tee shot and the approach. The next 4 holes are quite forgiving with wide
landing areas and fairly large greens. Sloping mounds and penal rough will add strokes however, if you do not keep the ball in the fairway. The final four holes are the most
beautiful - and the most challenging on the course. Number fifteen and 16 offer an "up north" feel, with tree lined fairways. Number 17 is a par three which plays over a marsh (and
plays long) and 18 is a long par 4 (# 1 handicap) that demands a tee shot that draws or runs along the tree line near the left side of the fairway. This is a sharp dogleg left - leaving
you with a long approach if you stay right. .
Pheasant Run has added nine new holes for the 2002 season. The front nine ( now the North) remains the same, but the second nine (now the South) has changed by adding 2
new holes while "bumping" holes 17 and 18 over to the new West nine. The new South holes on 15 and 16 are nothing short of spectacular .(pictured here). Marsh lands, ponds
and strategically placed bunkers make these two of the most challenging and beautiful holes at Pheasant Run.
The other 7 new holes that complete the West, are also quite unique. The fairways are extremely undulating and sod laid mounds and grassy swales surround the greens. The
layout covers a lot of territory as it meanders through a new upscale residential community, which is comfortably in the background. The two par threes play over water and are
Greens are mid-size and mildly undulating. The addition of the new nine makes Pheasant Run even more attractive. At 3610 yards, this layout is the longest of the three designs.
Their wonderful practice facility - featuring a grass and mat range with fairway targets, and a huge putting green, can surely stand the extra traffic, as can their comfortable
clubhouse with restaurant and banquet facilities. Check it out!
