Arthur Hills’ thoughtful design fits gently into the Michigan countryside, weaving its way through the woods of oak, pine, maple and protected wetlands. Hills, whose course designs have won numerous Golf Digest awards, has incorporated significant risk-reward factors into the golf course, tempting you to go for it but providing welcome bailout areas if your best laid plans go awry.
There is a premium here on well-placed tee shots and there are many scenarios where just hitting the fairway is not enough because you'll want to favor one part of the fairway for the best approach shot. Our L-93 bent grass greens range from our postage-stamp No. 3 at 4,500 square feet, to No. 17, which tops out at 8,700 square feet. The short No. 3, a 389-yard par 4 over wetlands, requires an approach shot from 100-150 yards. A bunker on the left protects the green, which has a small drop-off in front and rolling terrain all around it.
Oakhurst also boasts one of the top golf practice facilities in Michigan. The driving range is the perfect place to fine-tune all facets of your game with a short game area, well maintained putting greens and some of the top golf instructors in southeast Michigan. With great bird's eye views of the entire course, the driving range is one of many experiences that sets Oakhurst apart from the rest.
