Although Lyon Oaks Golf Club is situated in southwest Oakland County, the course has an "up north" feel thanks to acres of mature hardwood forests dotted with pristine wetlands. The golf course strikes a nice balance between being challenging and player friendly. The spacious layout doesn't have any adjacent fairways and you won't find any intimidating tee shots either. The fairways are wide and forgiving with ample landing areas and the mildly undulating greens hold putts very well. There are still plenty of fairway and greenside bunkers to avoid, though, and water hazards come into play frequently as well. You'll have some opportunities to use your driver off the tees at Lyon Oaks Golf Club, but shot placement is just as important as distance. The challenging round finishes with a scenic par 5 that is reachable in two if you're strategic about it.

    Paid $67 for a disastrous round ! Got continually harassed for slow play ! We don’t play slow , tough course and Cart Paths Only ! Told to skip a hole even though the group behind us never had to wait ! My friend was threatened a physical confrontation by a 19 counter boy ! Please do yourself a favor and avoid this pompous golf course!

    Great "up north" type course. Golf course personnel were pleasant and helpful. They keep the golfers moving for a 4.5 hr. round.

    Drove an hour and some change for an early tee time and was turned away by the pro-shop because they wouldn't honor my coupons at face value of what I paid for them. I could possibly understand if I was taking away business from someone else, but I was the first person out and going off as a single. They must not value their customers very much at all. I will definitely tell all of my family and friends not to waste their money. It's not like there is a shortage of other fine golf courses in the area to choose from.

    I found most of the other ratings generous to say the least. Don't get me wrong this is a decent track to play with natural beauty and the course itself is probably a 4 star rating, however the customer service (mainly the pro-shop) is extremely lacking and not even comparable to what you would probably find at a below average public course. I guess you have to keep in mind that this is county park and not run like a real business or things would be much different and cater to the whole golfing experience. There are much better courses around in the Oakland/Livingston county area and I wont be back any time soon.

    This is one of the best courses I've ever played. The only courses I'd rate higher (and not by much) are Bay Harbor and the Fountains of Garland. There are no parallel holes and you don't see any houses, roads or humanity. It truly gives you an up north feel. You'll always see some sort of wild life and great outdoor beauty. The course is always in excellent shape and challenging so bring your A-game. Beginners stay home or you're sure to run out of balls.

    The course is excellent and always well maintained. it plays very much like an up north course, There are no parallel holes and you never see any houses or buildings. There is plenty of water, trees. heather, sand and wild life to keep you interested. The course plays tough. It's not for beginners.
