Point O’ Woods is a classic Robert Trent Jones course and is not only one of the best courses in Michigan but regularly makes the Top 100 courses in the US. You may have never heard of the Western Amateur that has been held on this track each year since 1971, but here are a list of winners Andy North, Ben Crenshaw, Curtis Strange, Andy Bean, Hal Sutton, Scott Verplank, Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore. I think those names are testimony to how good this track is.
Stand out holes for me were: The 2nd is a great risk and reward hole if you decide to go for the green with your second shot on this 565 yard par 5, but you will need to carry the ravine to make the green. The 3rd is also another beautifully designed dog leg left par 5 and the front nine is closed by a tight but short par 4 of 327 yards and a tough par 3 over water. I really enjoyed the back nine and there are some great holes, but the ones that stand out from the rest are the 11th, 12th and 18th, but you will enjoy them all.
