We love our golf here in Jackson. In fact, we love it so much that we have the second highest number of golf courses per capita in the entire country, behind only Sarasota, Florida. Play a round in Jackson and see why lush landscapes, convenient location and affordable green fees keep golfers coming back year after year.
Golf has been a part of Jackson’s personality for a long time. We’re talking late 1800s, when Clara Carter opened the 9-hole Meadow Heights course near Vandercook Lake. The total number of county courses has ballooned to more than 20 since then, 17 of which have at least 18 holes. For starters, Grande Golf Club was awarded an impressive 4.5 stars from Golf Digest, Cascades’ Course is consistently listed as one of the top public courses in Michigan, and Arbor Hills offers the unique experience of a country club-turned-public. Hankerd Hills Golf Course and Concord Hills Golf Course provide flawless fairways just outside the city, while Brooklyn boasts the scenic Clark Lake and Hills' Heart of the Lakes courses.
All Skill Levels Welcome
Whether you’re a low handicap looking for a challenge or someone who just tries to get out a few times a year, there’s a course for you. Devoted weekend warriors will appreciate the openness and hazards within Calderone’s British-style course. There’s no shortage of laid-back public courses for the casual golfer, either. An up-and-coming Ella Sharp Park track offers the perfect chance to shake the rust off at a municipal course with ultra-affordable green fees. But you’ve been warned; watch out for that 12th hole!
