Featured Golf Course Review:
Carleton Glen Golf Club -- A true test of golf...
Review by: Balbsy Carleton Glen is a bit of an anomaly for SE MI golf; this is not your typical back and forth, always straight from tee to green style daily fee golf course. It instead offers long par fours, doglegs (both right and left), par fives with definite risk-reward second shots, and par threes that make you think twice about club selection. Tree-lined fairways, water, sand and long rough await the golfer. Also, the back tees really do reshape the course and how you approach it. I was hesitant to give this course any publicity as it is always easy for me to get on (they usually don't take a tee time during the week). Never crowded, I liked the fact I can pull up, pay for golf, and proceed to the tee without delay. I am in SE Mi quite a bit, and I prefer playing "the Glen" because of this and all the other reasons previously stated. But Carleton Glen has always done me well, and as such I feel the need to return the favor by telling everyone it is a course anyone who loves and respects the game will enjoy.

Kensington Metropark -- Another fine Metropark course
Review by: Balbsy Kensington Metropark golf course is easily enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels. Numerous wider than average fairways and large greens make for a pleasurable round for the beginner. As for the skilled player, doglegs and a few well-positioned bunkers will give challenge as club selection is made. Pace of play, even at peak times, is maintained. As for the staff, expect to find a very friendly and helpful group of people. Two reasons cause me to not give Kensington Metropark Golf Course a higher rating. The first is that the course is alongside a major freeway (I-96). The roar of 70 m.p.h. traffic cannot be ignored, especially while playing the holes bordering the freeway. The second reason for a lower score is the required $4.00 entrance fee that is collected for entering this Metropark. Just golfing for the day and not utilizing the park's various offerings matters not. Four bucks for each vehicle is the day's bottom line. Understand, other Metropark courses do not force golfers to pay this fee (Willow, Erie, etc.). Kensington does charge. Keep this in mind as you drive up to the gate...
