WARREN VALLEY GOLF CLUB (313-561-1040)
Michigan Golf Course Review
Warren Valley Golf Club in Dearborn Heights is a 36-hole facility located on Warren Road between Inkster and Beech Daily. As sister property to the more
upscale Inkster Valley Golf Club just 4 miles away, Warren Valley presents two traditional layouts featuring rolling tree lined fairways with some scenic
holes that wind over and around the Rouge River.
There are minimal cart paths and rustic conditioning along both of these designs. Though bunkering is sparse, surprising elevation changes (there are at
least 6 elevated tees on the West Course) make play here interesting - and with rates topping out at around $36 including cart on weekends in 2006, this
is one of the most affordable golf experiences in the Metro Detroit area.
The photos in this review are of the West Course, which presents three tee areas measuring in distance and slope: 6126 yards/115 slope, 5827 yards
/113 slope, and 5158 yards/114 slope. The East course plays to 6189 yards/114 slope, 5820 yards/110 slope, and 5298 yards/113 slope. Both courses
have 150 yard stakes located in the fairways of all par fours and fives, with some sprinkler heads also measured to the center of the green. Small markers
on the flagsticks indicate front, middle and back hole locations.
The Green complexes are very accessible, as most are open and fairly level in front, with some slope but little undulations on the medium size putting
surfaces. There are numerous doglegs defined by trees or the river, but fairways are usually generous and as the slope ratings indicate, both layouts are very player friendly.
Facilities on property include separate putting and chipping greens and a clubhouse with pro shop and the Ross Room Restaurant - open for lunch and
dinner. A separate banquet hall is situated upstairs, and can accommodate up to 300 guests for weddings and special functions. For more information on
