Shepherd's Hollow has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Public Golf Club's in the United States by Golf Digest.

The original 18 holes at this golf course (1-18) are my favorite 18 holes in Michigan. I've played here more times than I can count and have never been disappointed whether it was in April, July, or October. The fairways play soft but don't get...More

Golf course is beautiful and challenging. The restaurant is very good and no one is ever there. Can have breakfast in the summer there. Sit out in the pretty patio and feel like you're all alone. Very underused. Good for dinner also. Beautiful setting.

This was the best of the three courses we played. The course has three 9's each of which offers its own challenges. It's unfortunate a picture really can't show an elevation change but this is a par 3. 228 yards from the tips with a...More

Tough course, abundant deep bunkers. Scenic view. Rough just long enough to make it a challenge to find your ball. No carts within a 100 yards of the greens. Cart path on only one side of the hole can slow play is your ball location...More

I have golfed Shepard's Hollow twice and it's the nicest course in the area. The greens are fair and there are plenty of sand traps and hazards on the course to make it challenging. The pro shop staff was very friendly.

We paid $70 with a cart. That was during the week and booked with the pro shop not with a tee time web site so you may be able to get a better rate.
