Hilltop Golf Course
Grumpy staff doesn't like beginners like me
I played here with a couple of friends. None of us are good. The place wasn't at all busy but about 2 or 3 times during our round there were some grumpy staff members who would pull up beside us at the tee box and tell us we were being too slow. I think only one group caught up to us and we let them pass through. I wouldn't go back but the scenery was nice and if you're not as bad as I am then you would like it better.

Course need attention.
Ok to just knock the ball around. Tee boxes are in poor shape and mostly weeds.

Good but needs better yardage markers
I was looking to get a birthday celebratory round of golf for a buddy in the South/Western part of Metro Detroit who hails from the Westland/Canton area.
Hilltop had some convenient early morning tee times available which I locked in and the rates were $25/round including cart compared to other courses nearby charging $40+.
This was our first time playing there and the score card had very minimal information on it regarding flag/pin placement as well as yardage marker locations.
We were constantly searching for markers and/or guessing our yardage throughout the round which was frustrating and the rough seemed a little high near the fairway.
The staff was friendly but like many golf courses could have used some portable bathrooms and water stations at more holes.

Overall score 2/10
This course was in bad shape. They need serious attention to the tee boxes and a hand full of the greens. About 3 summers ago I played here and it was night and day. I asked a staff member and they told me it was under new management. This kinda explains some of the stuff. I'd never pay to golf here EVER again.

THIS IS A GREAT TRACK, HAMBURGERS AIN'T BAD EITHER.
MY NEW FAVORITE COURSE. THEY DO A NICE JOB WITH THE FOOD TOO.

Up and Down
As the name implies, most often you are teeing off from a hilltop, down a valley and up to the green. Greens often hard to read - several very slow, some fast even when correctly reading elevation. Lots of elevation on greens in very good condition. This is a tight course. Some nice scenery but you might also see activity on three holes when playing your hole.
Fairways are narrow and require accuracy especially on doglegs. You may need to be extreme right or left in order to have a good shot to the green. A bit odd there was not a starter on a crowded day but players moved along at a moderate pace.

Great elevation change
Our first time playing this course and the staff was friendly, the course well maintained, the layout very enjoyable and the pace of play fast. We really enjoyed the elevated tees on many of the holes and the presence of the varied terrain regarding elevation changes. Water on the course and a cart girl to serve up some nice cold beer; what a perfect day. Will definitely be back for more. Highly recommended.
