Decided to start playing "Home Grown" local courses within 1 hr of home, when I can. White Oaks GC in Hillsdale, MI was built in 1965 as a 9 hole Links layout is one of these courses. Re-Purchased in 1995 it was re-designed by Rick Price and built by Bernard Smith into a 6,162yd / Par 35/36 18 hole layout in 2001. The first four (4) holes having two (2) 422+ yd par 4's and a 232yd par 3 will get your attention quickly. Fairways mowed tight, being full bent grass with the complete rough mowed and some water damage to the low areas. Would have liked to see more fairway/hole separation by leaving longer grass on some of the back 9 open holes. This would give a more challenging look (50 - 100yd forced carries also needed) and add some beauty to the open layout. Rick & Teresa are making the needed ongoing changes/improvements that make this a local favorite with conditions to match. Enjoyed shooting 39/40 w/33 putts during my nice 2hr loop with weather to match. Could use some better directions to #8 Tee and #16 Blue Tee box and yardages blocks on the Par 3's would be nice. Worth stopping in and meeting some great local owners and watching this 18 hole track improve.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Decided to start playing "Home Grown" local owned courses within 1 hr of home when I can. White Oaks GC in Hillsdale built in1965 as an original 9 hole Links layout is one of these. Re-Purchased in 1995 it was re-designed by Rick Price and built by Bernard Smith into a 18 hole 6,162yd / Par 35/36 in 2001. The first four (4) holes having two 422 yd+ par 4's and a 232yd par3 will get your attention quickly. Fairways were mowed tight, being full grass and the rough was mowed to 3 inches with some water damage in the lower areas. Letting some grass grow long to separate side by side fairways (back 9) would give a more visual separated look. Also leaving tall grass the first 100 yards off the tee will make one focused on his game more and a more challenging look. Rick & Teresa are making the needed ongoing changes/improvements to make this a local favorite with conditions to match, once the spring rains lighten up. Enjoyed shooting 39/40 w/33 putts making this a nice 2hr loop with weather to match. Could use some signs directing new players to the next holes as #8 and #16 Blue boxes come to mind. Look forward to returning when the wet drainage areas dry up and yardage blocks added to the par 3's, taking out the guess work. Worth stopping in and seeing a great local designed layout keep getting better.
