Featured Golf Course Review:
Falcon Head Golf Course -- Tough Back Nine
Review by: Chuck The back nine is quite a bit different than the front. The front nine is mostly the original nine. Designed in the day when flat was good. Hole 8 is a challenging par 5. The back nine gets alot of complaints because it plays a little more difficult and you only need a driver for two holes. Hole 15 is one of my all time favorites for average courses. Its perched high on a hill that overlooks a fairly large pond. You can either lay up with a 5 iron or pull out the driver and try to clear the pond. A creek cuts across in front of the green which is also protected by a large maple tree. A par 4. Tough hole. Its fun to watch the ball sail across the pond.

Wyandotte Shores -- Swing and a miss...
Review by: Balbsy Wyandotte Shores is a struggle of sort. It is a nine hole course that "everyone" can play. This course did have nice greens, that is until they rid themselves (in 2003) of the one individual that kept the course in good playing condition. Now, Wyandotte Shores enjoys a seemingly annual fungus that has all but destroyed the greens. Drainage is another problem; it is poor. Pace of play is an issue; expect (in many instances) to spend a minimum 2.5 hours completing the 9 holes. And when I say everyone can play, I include those that show up in jeans, tanktops and work boots, utilizing their buddy's clubs (and beer) to hammer away at the ball with no sense of what they're doing or any care from management, whose only concern was to take the money and release them onto the property with no afterthought. For those who enjoy and respect this game, and until management makes the much-needed effort, avoid this tract.
