Glen Oaks Golf Course is now open!
To be fiscally responsible and become aligned with comparable golf course rates, Oakland County Parks and Recreation hired consultant Golf Convergence to evaluate its five courses.
Golf maintenance, pro shop operations, rates, staffing and more were evaluated by the golf consultant. Information from comparable golf courses, both public and municipal, was also used as part of this evaluation. Through this process it was determined that OCPR golf courses were underpriced, which resulted in recommended rate changes for the 2021 golf season. Additionally, a survey was sent to 900 golfers asking for their input. OCPR's course conditions and customer service were the highest positive rated responses by golfers, which also revealed the courses were underpriced.
Recommendations from the consultant have led to changes being implemented this year. The biggest change is the implementation of online tee times, which will be accepted starting at midnight 14 days before play. Golfers are also welcome to call the Pro Shop starting at 7 a.m. to reserve a tee time 14 days in advance.
Seniors (62+), active military, veterans and individuals with disabilities will continue to receive discounted rates on rounds of golf. Spring golf rates have been eliminated. And, the pricing structure has been simplified. Reduced weekend rates (weekday rates) will be available for afternoon play this season and times may vary at each course.

An additional change is that FootGolf will only be available at Red Oaks Golf Course. And, this year, two riders will be allowed on the carts at the start of the season.
