Bald Mountain in Lake Orion just NE of the Palace of Auburn Hills is one of the metro area's most traditional layouts, designed in 1929 by Wilfred Reid. The course features mostly open fairways lined by mature trees, with sufficient landing areas. There are few sand traps but gentle swales and grass bunkers often can be found greenside. Golfers should be able to locate level landing zones, along fairways that are very rolling, with elevation changes including a mix of raised tees and green complexes. Players should not expect manicured bent tees, fairways and bunkers that are prevalent on some of metro areas upscale layouts - but with green fees topping out at $40 including cart - this is a fine value for the overall quality. Land on the greens - and you will be delighted with the wonderfully conditioned putting surfaces that provide good opportunities for par or better.
