This Harry Bowers design opened in 1998. The course is part of a storm water management plan put into place by Wayne County to control flooding from the Rouge River. Wayne County Parks owns the course and it is managed by Torre Golf Management.

From the tips the layout measures 6,709 (72.0/133 rating). It plays longer because of doglegs and cross hazards. Two alternate tees are available and unless you are an accurate single-digit handicapper, move up a tee.

Inkster is a somewhat down on its luck suburb of Detroit and the presence of this golf course in the middle of the city is a nice surprise. Except in a few places where one can see the surrounding neighborhoods, one would think you are out in the country.

The entire front nine and much of the back have holes lined by forest and swampland. There are lots of forced carries and cross hazards to negotiate. There are many blind or semi-blind shots and doglegs which need to be "cut". Holes 13-16 are quite a bit different than the rest of the course in that they are played over a fairly open section of grassland.

Green complexes are well bunkered. The greens themselves are moderate to large in size with many having significant contours.

This is not a course for the inaccurate player or a golfer who can't negotiate forced carries. Even playing the shorter set of tees will still present a challenge for the inconsistent ball striker.

The day we played we had the entire front 9 to ourselves. They had the "white" tees moved up significantly - so much so that we chose to play some holes from the "blue" tees or where the "white" ones should have been. In fact, that is a problem with this course. It is quite a jump from 6,700 to 6,100. The front nine from the "white" tees is only 2,884 and if the tees are moved up it might only be 2,500.

While the course was generally in decent shape, the greens have a lot of ball marks - so much so that they are rather unsightly. We repaired the ones in our line and the greens rolled true. They just don't look as good as they play.

The course can be accessed from I-96 (Middlebelt exit south) or I-94 (Middlebelt exit north).

We had the course to ourselves for the first 9. When we made the turn the course had sent a foursome out on the back. They were slow and made no indication they were willing to let our faster group through. So pace was great until we ran into the roadblock. We played on a Thursday morning and our cost for 18 w/cart was $19 each, a bargain IF you know the course layout. They have a free yardage book available BUT many of the yardages shown are to unseen hazards. Often the yardage to a bunker was 248 yards but we could not see the bunker because of the dogleg or weeds.
