Tucked into a curve of the Huron River, Wesburn Golf & Country Club traces its roots back to 1910 and its layout to course architect Wesson Seyburn. Extensive renovations have launched the bluegrass fairways into the modern age, enabling contemporary golfers to putt on sculpted greens that have existed for over a century. Before teeing off, players can warm up at one of the driving range’s 20 hitting stations, and after penciling in their final score, they can head toward the stately brick clubhouse. Here, plaid carpeting and a fireplace paint a comforting atmosphere, and the dining room’s overhead beams provide a place for athletes to do pull-ups until they can bend their clubs into pretzels.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course

Bearers of a Taylor golf VIP pass can groom their golf game with a regimen of golf lessons and six rounds of golf at two scenic courses designed by prolific course architect Arthur Hills. Players can bolster their technique before hitting the links with a set of 10 one-hour small-group clinics, where classes no larger than 10 pupils learn how to control their ball flight and bend 9 irons into coat hangers from one of the courses’ resident aces.

Since 1968, Woodside Meadows Golf Course has tucked away plenty of opportunities for low scores among the lush bluegrass that covers it from first tee box to 18th green. A relatively short undertaking at 5,774 yards from the furthest of two tees, the layout pulls players into confrontations with four large ponds and two small ones during their round, allowing ample opportunity for a refreshing midround cannonball. Before teeing off, players can warm up on the driving range, and an onsite eatery offers snacks such as hot dogs to help players refuel.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 68 course
  • Total length of 5,774 yards from the back tees
  • Two sets of tees per hole

Golf and curling are similar in their basic values: both games require a steady hand, have their own distinct vernacular, and emphasize sportsmanship so much that the post-match handshake is a universal ritual. Roseland Golf and Curling Club brings the two genteel games together in one facility that features a six-sheet curling rink and a 27-hole golf complex. Open November through March, the curling club offers free “Learn to Curl” classes at various points throughout the season, leagues for curlers of all ages and abilities, and open ice sheet rentals all day on Saturdays for those looking for a place to stash their perishable snacks.

Outside, golfers can test par-hunting skills at an 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Donald Ross and built in 1926. The layout measures a formidable 6,943 yards from the farthest tees, requiring golfers to call upon every club or oversized crowbar in their bag to complete the round. In addition, the facility offers shorter, short game-oriented rounds in the form of a 9-hole, par-3 course.

In 1917, famed golf-course architect Donald Ross carved New Rogell Golf Course out of an urban plot along Grand River Avenue, adding yet another gem to a portfolio of courses that also includes Pinehurst No. 2 and Oakland Hills. Today, players enjoy the fruits of Mr. Ross’s labor as they cruise over a bentgrass path that stretches to 6,075 yards from the farthest tees. Two additional tee boxes start off each hole as well, allowing golfers to tailor rounds to their skill level or forsake tees completely and start in a bunker.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Total length of 6,075 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 70.2 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 129 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

When Marion “Spitz” Eipperle decided in 1971 that he wanted to open a golf course on his family’s land, his fellow farmers thought he had come unhinged. But that didn’t stop him. He shrugged off the snickers of his detractors and recruited the help of friend and mentor Harley Hodges. Together, they cut down a plot of corn stalks and evicted every last scarecrow to make way for Harley’s design: an 18-hole course that would careen through the farmland and tangle with local creeks on both the front and back sides. Eipperle’s dream finally became a reality when Green Meadows Golf Course opened for play on Memorial Day weekend in 1973.

Today, Spitz remains the course patriarch, handling its affairs alongside his children and grandchildren. Just as it did that fateful day in ’73, the terrain gives players a tour of the Eipperle acreage, hopping over the first creek at six points on the front side and over the second creek four times on the back side. One of these holes, the par 5 fifth, is the course’s signature undertaking, known for a tee shot that must fly 220 yards to clear the creek, a second shot that must be steered right around a late-fairway dogleg, and a third shot that must give the grass a secret knock before being allowed to settle on the green.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Total length of 6,391 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 66.8 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 116 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
