COURSE OF THE WEEK: Mystic Creek a Detroit Area Favorite

COURSE OF THE WEEK: Mystic Creek at Detroit Area Favorite

 As you drive through the gates of Camp Dearborn in Milford on your way to Mystic Creek Golf Club, you find so much more than just a golf course.

 Approximately 35 miles northwest of Dearborn City Hall, Camp Dearborn covers more than 600 acres of forest, lakes, beaches, and campgrounds, and offers a wide range of outdoor activities including swimming, fishing, and of course, golf.

 Mystic Creek Golf Club opened in 1996 and was designed by Conroy/Dewling Associates. The course was privately owned and operated until 2012, when the City of Dearborn purchased it and began daily operations.

 Made up of three distinctly different 9-hole layouts, golfers get to pick which combination they desire for a round of 18, or can play a round of 27 and try all three layouts.

 The first set of nine is named ‘The Lakes’, and according to course General Manager Trent Smith, it is a favorite among golfers because of its “beauty and scenery.” The Lakes course winds through five separate lakes, leading water to come into play on 8 of the 9 holes. The carefully designed layout is challenging but rewards golfers who are accurate off the tee box and around the greens.

 The second set of nine is named ‘The Woods’ and Smith says that golfers “like the challenge of The Woods demanding holes with elevation and tall hardwoods.” Located at the northeast corner of Camp Dearborn, The Woods offers lush bent grass fairways and elevation changes that will make you utilize each club in your bag.

 The final set of nine is named ‘The Meadows’ and as Smith details, it is “challenging but the most playable of the three.” The Meadows offers fairways the twist and turn, strategically placed bunkers designed to catch a misplaced shot, and a series of ponds that can come into play.

 Each of the three courses come in at a par 36 and finish with par 5s. With five different sets of tees to choose from, Mystic Creek is suitable for golfers of all ages and skill level.

 Mystic Creek also offers a full-service 15,000 square foot clubhouse if you need somewhere to relax before or after your round. 

 With rolling meadows, tall stands of hardwoods, and a multitude of picturesque lakes, this beautiful course is understandably known as one of the favorites in the Detroit area.

 According to Trent Smith, in addition to your everyday round of golf, “Mystic Creek specializes in group events from corporate golf outings, retreats, weddings, showers, family events and many more”.
