Detailed description of Cheshire Hills Golf Course

Cheshire Hills Golf Course is a Public, 27 hole golf facility located in Allegan, Michigan. The facility has three 9-hole golf courses. These courses can be combined in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges. The nine-hole courses are The Red Fox Course, The White Tail Course, and The Blue Bird Course.

Cheshire Hills Golf Course first opened for play in 1972. The courses were designed by Herb, Alan, and Ken Johnson.

The Red Fox Course is the most difficult because of its narrow, tree-lined fairways. There are a variety of green sizes on all three courses. The terrain is rolling, and ponds come into play on the White Tail and Blue Bird courses.

Driving back through the area and decided to stop in for a quick 18 on this wooded 27hole layout.

The 18hole loop for today is Red (2,963yd / Par 35) and White (3,090yd / Par 35) layouts from the Blues (4 Tee boxes) for $26 w/cart was a great deal.

Starting out on Red #1 an 278yd straightaway Par 4 was a nice easy start of a great round. The #2 dogleg right 345yd Par 4 needs a full 200yd carry to the corner if you want to get a good look at the green. Where the yardage here is on the short side, its narrow mowed fairways adds a little challenge from the deep grass and overhanging tree branches. The #3 Par 3 is only 120yards to the smaller sized green but going long (drop off) will be a double bogey gift. The #4 dogleg left 376yd Par 4 needs another 200-220yd drive to reach center cut corner to the well-protected green. Number #6 an 365yd Par 4 has a small fairway crossing stream at 180yds to catch those corner placement shots. The #9 is a great finishing 527yd Par 5 that has a LH dogleg tee shot to the corner and a narrow fairway to the raised protected green.

The Back 9 White course starts out with #1 being a narrow 341yd Par 4 that has high trimmed trees, allowing for full swing saves, if needed. Slight doglegs seem to a trend in the design for this course layout. Number #3 378yd Par4 and #4 465yd Par 5 are the next dogleg right layouts you'll have to contend with to hit those corner locations. The #6 is a narrow 557yd Par 5 to another well protected and smooth holding green. The #8 203yd Par 3 has water all down the righthand side, so miss left for the bailout. The #9 is another dogleg left 365yd Par 4 to a raised green that needs full carry if you want to score.

I enjoyed the tree-lined layout with the many dogleg challenges shooting 39/38 w/31 putts on this well manicured 27 hole Public layout.

It's a nice course for an average player. Some of the holes are challenge because the fairway are tight. But we played on a windy day so that was a little tough, also the friends that I played there with play this course on a weekly basis so they had a little advantage.
