Shepherd's Hollow has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Public Golf Club's in the United States by Golf Digest. Set on more than 350 rolling acres, at one of the highest elevations in Oakland County, Shepherd's Hollow is among the most unique golfing experiences in the state of Michigan. 27 Holes tucked into a towering forest of pine and oak offers the golfer a natural setting that provides a sense of tranquility. Shepherd's Hollow is a true destination course. The golf is only part of the story. Our secluded club house offers beautiful surroundings with complete dining facilities. Our relaxing open air veranda and pine covered terrace allow each diner to enjoy the splendor of nature with a wide variety of expertly prepared culinary delights. We think you'll agree that dinner here is more than a meal, it's a unique dining experience.

What a great place to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Weather permitting, you can sit out by the trees, see actual golfers out in the wild and enjoy the warm breeze and song birds. The food isn't bad either.

Best public golf course in SE Michigan!!! Holes 1-9 and 19-27 are the best. 10-18 have a couple of holes that are squirrelly. Starters should be a lot more friendly and appreciate customers instead of acting like it's a bother!!

The golf course is beautiful. We played on a gorgeous day. The course is very hilly which makes it very challenging. There are alot of blind hits.

We paid $70 with a cart. That was during the week and booked with the pro shop not with a tee time web site so you may be able to get a better rate.
