Oakland County Parks: Red Oaks Golf Course
Come play at an Oakland County favorite referred to as "the best place to hit a quick nine close to home" with today’s feature: $12 for 9 Holes with Cart at Red Oaks Golf Course in Madison Heights ($25 Value. Expires December 31, 2013.)
An enjoyable nine-hole addition to Oakland County Parks' formidable lineup, Red Oaks Golf Course is a conveniently located design intended to reward skillful iron play. Reaching 2,442 yards from the back tees with a par of 31, this quick little jaunt — despite its lessened length — isn’t always an effortless one.
Built by renowned golf course architect Jerry Matthews — the prominent Michigan designer who also blessed the state with a host of award-winning courses — Red Oaks Golf Course reflects Jerry’s philosophy loudly throughout its fairways. And in keeping with his belief in natural design, Red Oaks maintains certification from the Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program, which represents its commitment to protecting the environment.
"Oakland County Parks working with Jerry Matthews put together a great new nine-hole golf course at Red Oaks to challenge the best of golfers. Jerry's attention to detail and commitment to golf makes Red Oaks one of the greatest nine-hole courses in southeast Michigan."
— Mr Ralph Richard, former Executive Officer, Oakland County Parks
