gladwin heights golf clubThe 18-hole Gladwin Heights Golf Course in Gladwin, Michigan is an older design from 1960 that has stood the test of time and still challenges golfers of all skill levels.  One of the features that sets this course apart is the dramatic difference between the front nine and the back nine.  You almost have to be prepared to play two different course concepts in outing.

 

 The front 9 plays to 2725 yards. This may seem short, but this is the shot makers’ side. Straight tee shots and accurate approach shots are paramount. Five of nine holes have strategically placed bunkers, and water comes into play on holes 1,4,6 and 8. Number 4 is a par 5 playing only 413 yards. Once you have executed a demanding tee shot, it will leave you a short 2nd shot to the green for a possible eagle. With a little patience you can go low on the front side!

 

Holes 10 through 18 play to 3170 yards for a total of 5895 yards. The back side is more open with larger landing areas for your tee shots. Six holes have sand in play, but only two have water in play. With larger greens, don’t underestimate the subtle, but not too subtle, breaks that make putting a challenge!  Number 16 dogleg left around a water hazard at 549 yards makes par a good score.

 

Come on out and see what makes this place so much fun to play!
