Coyote Preserve Golf Club in Fenton is one of the only courses in the area designed by Arnold Palmer. The course has a hilly terrain that provides plenty of elevation changes a well as stunning views. Tumbling across deep ravines and native wetlands, the layout requires many carries over dramatic depressions and water hazards but many are seemingly intimidating but actually quite reasonable. Massive, finely sculpted bunkers strategically frame the greensides of many holes. While some of them are manageable, others are deep and sod-faced. The tricky hazards in conjunction with the dramatic elevations demand both accuracy and creative shot-making. The golf course has a memorable finish with a par-5, risk-reward hole. There is ample room off the tee on this downhill, dogleg left hole and it presents a few different options for the second shot. With some thought, scoring par is definitely a possibility.

    $ for $ the best shot value of any course in Southeastern, Michigan.including Oakland Hills where I served as a photographer during the 2004 Ryder Cup. You MUST bring your 'A' game or the course will feast on your Pro V 1's. They did not earn the full fifth star because many of the patrons refuse to fix their ball marks.Though this is not the fault of course management they should assign a member of the grounds crew to repair the previous day's damage.

    Full disclosure statement: I had my second hole in one on the 17th hole of this course last year. My first was the 17th at Warwick Hills.

    The course was very well maintained. Challenging holes, lots of sand traps. Very nice setting, I enjoyed playing there. By far the top places I have played in the area.

    Must admit I drove from Kalamazoo to play and was a little disapointed. It is a good golf course just not a 2+ hr drive. Some good holes and some ok holes B-
