Dunham Hills Golf Club is situated amidst rolling hills and mature trees. The course is a demanding, but fun test of your skills. The topography presents challenging elevation changes throughout the course but accurate shots will be rewarded with level lies. The undulating fairways and lightning fast greens provide a variety of different shot options that will please the skilled shot-maker. Be prepared to utilize every club in your bag. Accuracy is essential on every hole in order to avoid the unpleasant lies that lurk beneath the hardwoods and pines but the trick is to keep the ball on the fairway. The layout opens with a tree-lined par 4 that is representative of the entire golf course. This tricky hole features a single bunker placed in front of a green that is sloped left to right.

    I have been playing DH since the mid 70's. It is one of my favorite courses in SE Michigan. The hole designs make you think right from the first shot. Do not go past the flag on hole one, you will three putt. I do not get ot Michigan very often now, but it is always a must stop.

    I finally got around to playing this course this year and I was right to look forward to it. This course is awesome! The greens are lightning fast. I’m talking 10.5 to 11. They’re the fastest I’ve ever seen so it’s real penal when you hit one too hard. The tee boxes are in good condition for the most part and the course has many trees but it’s more open than it looks. For as few bunkers this course has it’s extremely difficult.

    The elevation changes here are insane. One hole could be 100 feet downhill while the next could be 100 feet uphill. Not a good walking course but even with a cart it’s like 35-40 bucks and for what you’re getting here, that’s a steal!

    Only downside is that if you’re not a resident of the area, the course is tucked behind a big neighborhood with winding roads so it may take a while to find the entrance from the big highway. But once you’re there, you’ve struck gold.

    This is a tough course. A big challenge that you need most the clubs in your bag. Lots of change in elevations. Must play in south/east Michigan.

    One of the most demanding courses in SE lower Michigan at this yardage. Requires a large variety of shots and every club in the bag. Greens are always in fantastic shape and roll true. Must keep the ball below the hole as almost every green has at least a 3% grade (most are 4%).

    Some trees could use trimming and #14 is not a well designed hole as it demands a maximum 220 yard tee shot (on a 440 yard hole) unless you want to chance trying to hit a blind 15 yard wide fairway tucked between a pond and OB.

    Definitely one of my "top 5 to play" in SE lower Mi. but not a course for high handicappers unless you enjoy losing balls! Very difficult course to play well without local knowledge.
