Silver Lake Country Club is a Semi-private, 18 hole golf course located in Spring Lake, Michigan. The course is open for public play and membership options are also available.
The course first opened for play in 1925. Farmer, Carl Young, using a horse and plow repurposed a part of his farm into a 9-hole golf course. In 1929, another 9-holes and the clubhouse were added.
The course does not overly challenge with length, but it does have a number of blind shots and plenty of out of bounds stakes lining the fairways. The fairways are tree lined and hilly. The small greens are slightly undulated and well bunkered.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,328 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,262 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 1, a par-5 that plays to 498 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 8, a par-3 that plays to 153 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 9, a 398-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Spring Lake Golf Course is # 16, a 173 yard par-3.
