Michigan oldest municipal course will reopen after two years — just in time for its 100th anniversary

The Dearborn Hills Golf Course, believed to be the oldest municipal golf course in the state of Michigan, will reopen nine holes to the public in late spring following a two-year shutdown beginning in 2021.

According to a news release, the course was forced to close when heavy storms swept through the area causing immense flooding, damage, and unplayable conditions. Further damage was also caused by logjams on the Rouge River. Dearborn sits about 20 minutes west of Detroit and about a half-hour east of Ann Arbor.

The course wasn’t reopened in the 2022 season to allow the grounds to recover from the flooding the year prior.

When the course reopens, only the back nine holes will be playable as logjam mitigation work continues in the city.

Nine-hole leagues and golf outings will return to the Dearborn public late spring. The course was first opened in 1923 and is the only municipally owned and operated course in the city.

It was built by Robert Herndon, a prominent local developer, and is listed in the State Register of Historic Sites.
