WOLCOTT MILL GOLF CLUB (586-749-3415)
Michigan Golf Course Review
Wolcott Mill is a Metro Park golf course - and a unit of the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority. This facility (which some may have known as Northbrook Golf Club) is one of 10
courses in the Metroparks system operating in southeastern Michigan. This includes two par three layouts at Metro Beach and at Lower Huron, plus par 71 or 72 designs at
Stoney Creek (Shelby Twp), Indian Springs (White Lake), Kensington (Milford), Huron Meadows (Brighton), Hudson Mills (Dexter), Willow (New Boston) and Lake Erie in
Brownstown. For more info on the Metroparks courses call 800-234-6534 or reserve tee times online through this link www.metroparks.com
Wolcott Mill measures 6266 yards from the tips with a slope rating of 122. Alternate tees play to 5985 yards/117 slope and 5028 yards/115 slope. 100, 150 and 200 yard markers
are located on the fairways on par fours and fives, and color coded flags on the greens indicate the day's pin placement. There is a putting green on property, and the clubhouse
features a small pro shop plus snack bar with seating area plus patio, serving beverages and hot and cold sandwiches.
The course is very player-friendly, with wide landing zones along fairways that are at times tree lined and are sometimes open. The green complexes can be easily reached, as
nearby bunkers are often low lipped and non-penal in nature. Low running approaches and bump and runs can be used efficiently here, making this a good course for beginning
and high-handicapped golfers. The terrain is quite level, and the putting surfaces are only mildly sloped. There are some natural areas, which at times serve as buffers along the
parallel fairways that dominate the course design.
As with all the other courses in the Metropark system, Wolcott Mill is well cared for. Do not expect manicured tees & fairways and elaborate bunkering...but you can expect to get
some change to put back in your wallet. Walking is allowed at all times. Senior citizens (62 and over) and Juniors (17 or under) are eligible for special weekday rates at all
