Faulkwood Shores Golf Club first opened in 1971, exactly a century after the historic farmhouse that serves as the clubhouse was built. Located in Howell, it's considered one of southeastern Michigan's best values. The golf course has a traditional layout that is player friendly enough for players of all skill levels but there are some challenging hole designs that will appeal to those that are more advanced. Water hazards come into play on eight holes throughout the golf course, including a stream that runs alongside the first hole. The fairways are tight and the greens are fast and well guarded by bunkers. There are also a few subtle undulations that can be tricky to maneuver. Faulkwood Shores Golf Club requires accuracy but it's not overly punishing if you're slightly errant.

    This is one of the best courses in southeast Michigan. Along with it being a great course, golfers are treated with great respect, prices, and hopitality. A trip to Faulkwood is a treat.

    Not an easy course. The greens are often lightning fast and pin placement is occasionally near impossible as you cannot get the ball to stop within 20 ft of hole.

    Watch out for #3. That green is a great sledding hill.
