About the Course

Your Club for the Day

The Course

The Orchards Golf Club is the cornerstone of a 525 acre residential and golf community. The golf course, with its classic looks and style of play, is an eighteen-hole championship daily fee course, designed by internationally acclaimed golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. Reminiscent of the private clubs of the twenties. The Orchards challenges the golfer by permitting a variety of approaches to each hole.

“The Detroit metropolitan area is blessed with some of the greatest golf courses in the nation,” notes Bobby Jones Jr., “yet they are limited to play by their members and guests. My goal in designing The Orchards was to create an outstanding public golf course which would provide golfers with an enjoyable, yet challenging round that is a true test of golf.”

The Clubhouse

Mindful of the architectural heritage in the area, the clubhouse is reminiscent of the Victorian design, which is predominant in the towns of Romeo and Washington. The facility offers both men’s and women’s full service locker rooms, a full service golf shop and a full service restaurant and bar, with seating for up to 100 people. Also, the club’s outdoor banquet facility can accommodate parties and events of up to 165 people. Featured from the outdoors facility and the clubhouse terrace are the breathtaking view of the first fairway, and the panoramic view of the Detroit Skyline.

Practice Facility

The practice facility at The Orchards is unique to Southeastern Michigan. The 27,000 square foot practice green was designed as a combination pitching, putting, and bunker shot practice area. The practice range was designed to accommodate both individual practice and lessons by The Orchards professional staff. The range is 400 yards long with split level tees of 12,000 square feet open to the public at the North end, while a single 8,500 square foot tee is dedicated specifically to teaching, at the South end. The practice area is open daily to the public, unless a group lesson is in session. Range balls are sold in bags of 40 - 45 balls each. The bags can be purchased in the pro shop. Please respect others on the range and practice areas, and follow all range rules.
