Eagle Crest’s signature 16th hole was cited as one of Detroit’s “Dream 18 – Most Memorable Holes”
Eagle Crest Golf Club, located in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan, features an 18-hole championship golf course and a three-tiered practice driving range with a spectacular view of scenic Ford Lake. The facility offers a full-service Lakeview Restaurant & Bar, including an outdoor patio and a banquet facility room with one of the most picturesque 19th-hole settings in southeast Michigan.
Owned by Eastern Michigan University, Eagle Crest is the home course for the Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams and is also open to the public. The course has locker rooms, a golf shop, a PGA Teaching Academy on the property, its state-of-the-art practice facility, and a short game area, enabling golfers of all abilities to benefit and refine their skills.
The course opened in 1989 and was initially designed by Karl Litten of Boca Raton, Florida. In 2012, Eagle Crest underwent major renovations under the direction of architect Jim Lipe. On October 1. 2013, the Eastern Michigan University Board of Regents passed a resolution to name the golf clubhouse “Roy E. Wilbanks Eagle Crest Resort Golf Clubhouse“. It was through his vision and consistency of commitment that Eagle Crest Resort is such a significant part of the EMU and Ypsilanti community. The par-72 course provides golfers with one of the most challenging yet fair and fun tests of golf in southeast Michigan. With twelve sets of tees providing a variety of options and sightlines for all golfers, the course stretches to a length of 7,186 yards, with a course rating of 75.1 and a slope rating of 143 from the championship markers.
Several holes border the banks of Ford Lake, offering beautiful views throughout your round. Those include the course’s signature hole, the par-5 16th, which runs along the lake and has a peninsular green. The hole was recently cited by USA Today as one of Detroit’s “Dream 18-Most Memorable Holes.” Eagle Crest Golf Club is an excellent value, where you can enjoy golf, food, and drink in a grand setting that was just recognized with a #9 Golfers Choice ranking for “Top 25 College Golf Courses” and #5 Metro Detroit ranking for public golf courses by The Detroit Free Press..
