The Willow Wood Golf Club Experience
We have worked diligently to provide our patrons a value driven golfing experience at WWGC. Our course conditions and competitive pricing give us a growing number of “Home Course” players, while our location along Michigan’s capital and commerce corridor of I-96, have made Willow Wood a must-play location. It all starts with a golf course.
Willow Wood Golf Club first opened for play in 1998. The 18-Hole golf course is situated on the lovely sprawling countryside three miles south of downtown Portland. Just minutes off both I-96 and Charlotte Highway in Portland, the course is thoughtfully carved out of rolling hills and mature woodlands. It features creeks, wetlands, ponds, expansive meadows and gently contoured hills, with several pronounced elevation changes. It is evident that golf course architect, J. John Gorney, incorporated as many of these natural land characteristics as possible when designing the course. This diverse, naturally beautiful terrain lent itself most admirably to his grand vision, culminating in a wonderfully scenic and challenging, thoroughly enjoyable golf experience for players of ALL abilities.
A practical and welcome change for most golfers from the excessively long courses that have become so prevalent, Willow Wood is a more sensible, commonly manageable 6,200 yards (back tees) golf course, emphasizing quality shot-making rather than exceptional length. A complementing unique feature of the course, the real hallmark at Willow Wood, is the definitive variety of shots necessary, offering a chance to use virtually “every club in the bag.” Several of the holes can be played with distinctively different strategies, depending on the players’ whims and/or the current prevailing conditions, and there is a tempting mix of risk/reward opportunities sure to test the mettle of ANY golfer. Even the most accomplished players have fallen in love with our scenic and challenging “little” championship golf course.
Another appealing attraction for many is our smartly manicured and maintained Practice Area. It provides a pleasantly serene atmosphere ideal for working on your game.
Satisfying customers is our Number One goal, and we are constantly striving to accomplish that by improving our grounds and the services we provide. Our knowledgeable and proven management team and staff are continuously at work to make Willow Wood Golf Club one of the Hidden Gems of Michigan golf.
We cordially invite you to honor us with your patronage and come and see for yourself, why we, and our loyal clientele, are so excited about Willow Wood Golf Club. We hope to see you soon!
