Richmond Forest Golf Club is an up-scale course, open to the public and located in Lenox Township, Michigan, which began operations in June 1994. W. Bruce Matthews III, a third generation golf course architect whose family has been in the golf course business since 1925, designed the course.

Located 30 miles north of Detroit, Richmond Forest is a 6,700-yard par-72 golf course routed around ponds, woods and open land. The course has 8 holes adjacent to any one of 7 ponds and 9 holes playing through woods of beech, oak and maple.

Sand and grass bunkers surround large greens making proper club and shot selection vital to a low scoring round. Forty-six bunkers are positioned to challenge the better golfers, yet the large, varied Bent grass tees and wide fairways provide playing options for all levels of play. A large practice facility features target greens.

Course in great condition considering recent rainfall in the area. Some standing water in a few areas, but not enough to interfere with play. Course was in great condition! Will be back to play again. Great value for the money. August 22, 2014
great shape course was in great shape just got stuck behind slow group August 19, 2014
Front and Back - 2 different styles Played Richmond Forest this past weekend with my girlfriend and it was enjoyable and frustrating all at the same time. As I would like to list these out in a pros and cons section, it would take forever. The most notable changes I saw in the course was the difference in the front and back 9's. The front is more open, but WATER will not be your friend. The layout winds around small creeks and lakes/ponds and can test your accuracy. The back 9 gives you the sanctuary of the forest and is lined with tall trees. Miss-hits and driving through a dogleg will leave you chopping wood (kidding). At last, the pace of play could have been managed better. I think I would enjoy walking a round here (they have a lot of specials for walkers!), it's flat and manageable. Overall, enjoyable Sunday outing. Affordable snacks/brews, friendly staff, challenging and forgiving holes. It will leave you smiling and grinding your teeth throughout the round, but hey, it's golf!

water and dog legs Great course. Challenging approaches that are guarded by water or trees on several of the front 9. Course was in very good shape, Back nine less challenging than the front, but still great. Excellent value. August 9, 2014
Best Bang For Your Buck!! I play a lot of golf and I have yet to find a course in the northeast Detroit area that can beat the value of this course. Able to play 18 holes with a cart for 22 bucks and sometimes I can get out for under 20 dollars. Course is somewhat flat, but what it lacks in undulation, it makes up for in very tight greens and precisely placed bunkers. On most of the greens, if you miss a little left or right you better have your A+ short game, because getting up and down is a challenge. Front nine provides a more open approach allowing you to miss left or right and still be able to get to the promise land. The back nine, however, tightens up substantially with the trees and forces you to hit ball in precision spots. If you play the tips, this course plays long with a near 600 yard par 5. Course is in fabulous shape for the traffic it receives and gives you a really tough challenge for the little money it costs. I highly suggest playing this gem! August 9, 2014
Great conditions as always The terms "hidden gem" and "best kept secret" are thrown around a little loosely at times, but Richmond Forest comes pretty close to applying to both. Not only is this course always in pristine condition, but it's a tougher test than I think people give it credit for. The tips, if you so choose, play huge here and the whites are no bargain either. The back nine especially is not very kind to faders of the golf ball, making the course play even longer. It would be nice to see the course invest in improving their bunkers in the coming years. Also doesn't really have a quote unquote "signature hole" although the par five third hole probably comes the closest. I paid $22 today and usually can get on under 20 using golf now, which is really a steal. Clubhouse workers friendly as well. Great place. July 24, 2014
A Real Gem Excellent course at a very reasonable rate! Visibility of Yardage markers could be improved but otherwise a really enjoyable course! July 15, 2014
Excellent Conditions Course was in great shape. Pace of play was fabulous. Very challenging course. July 15, 2014
