St. Clair Shores Country Club -- Great Shape - Slow Play
Review by: Mike I've been playing St. Clair Shores Country Club since 1983. Over the years the quality of the course, ie: fairways, greens and overall layout of the course had improved greatly. It's a fine course to play for all levels. The better golfer may find it a bit short. Most par 4's are in the low to mid 300's. The course is mainly flat, but offers many different obsticles. Plenty of sand makes up for the flat layout. Water also poses problems on several holes. Hole #14, a mid range par three, requires a full carry over water. The main problem with St. Clair Shores Country Club is the SLOW PLAY. The course rangers, while very nice, do not do their job properly. In fact, over the past 20 years, they've gotten progresively worse. So don't expect any help if your stuck behind a group that take's more time than normal. Remeber, it's not a race. At least that's what I tell myself each time I go out to St. Clair Shores Country Club. Needless to say, it gets a bit frustrating at times. In conclusion, the course is maintained quite well. If you can get out on a weekday morning that would be the best time to enjoy your round. The rates are about mid $40's for 18 holes and a cart.

Tecumseh Country Club -- Best in Lenawee County
Review by: Jim Kelly Thank you Tecumseh Country Club. This course is very special to me. It introduced me to the game when I was a teenager. The course is all around delightful to play. It is very challenging, and will on occasion humble the best player. In my humble opinion, the best holes on the course are eight, nine, fifteen and eighteen. The eighth hole is a blind dogleg that twists around a thicket, and leads to a green nestled in among maple trees. Though not a long hole, it is very unforgiving, and a birdie here will bring a smile. The ninth opens with a hit from a high bluff, overlooking a tributary of the Raisin River. It requires a powerful drive to clear a mighty maple tree just left of center of the fairway, some 200 yards out. The fifteenth is the most spectacular of all, a long par 5, with a blind tee shot into lush ravine. This hole changes elevations three times. Players are required to ring a bell indicating it is clear for the following group to tee off. The closing hole is a long par 4 dogleg right, which climbs to the west exposure of the clubhouse. I have seen many matches won and lost on this hole. I am a former caddy from this private club in southeast Michigan. In 1968, at the tender age of 12, I met a group of golf caddies who were as eager as me learn the game. For the next few seasons, I carried bags for some of the finest club players that I have ever known. This old course introduced me some of the finest people ever. I learned true sportsmanship, and developed a great love for the game. I am now convinced golf is the finest game ever conceived by man. Special acknowledgement to then Golf Profesisonals, Art Michelke, Stan Brion.
