Lilac Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Newport, Michigan.
Lilac Golf Course opened in 1957. The course was designed by brothers Al and Sam Lilac.
The Lilac Golf Course is a long and demanding layout, with many long par 4's with a mix of reachable par 5's. The greens are considered by some to be the finest in the area for both speed and smoothness. The course is fairly flat and tree lined, and bunkers have been placed in appropriate places.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,941 yards. From the foward tees the course plays to 5,287 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 12, a par-5 that plays to 505 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 10, a par-3 that plays to 1473 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 4, a 466 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Lilac Golf Course is # 15, a 354 yard par-4.

I am a member @ Lilac because of the quality of the greens and the staff is very friendly. The improvements Decent range with a nice putting green. The course is challenging from the Blacks 6941 yards.. The Golds are playable for casual golfers. Very nice greens that are true with good speed always. Plenty of slope on these without being a carnival. The only improvement I would like to see is in the green side bunkers. Three reachable par 5's and one 610 Yard par 5 that is typically into the wind. Never made it in 2... Maybe one day.

Best deal in Southeast Michigan. Plays long, greens and fairways are kept in not great but very playable condition. Friendly staff, good carts, very inexpensive driving range, and a variety of challenges (long and open on the front, wooded and a little shorter on the back. I love this course for the value, the people, and the play.
