We appreciate the opportunity to give local residents an outlet to get fresh air and exercise in a safe environment. We pride ourselves in providing somewhere for our guests and employees to enjoy the game of golf, and we are open with some very important changes designed to limit contact, transactions, and touch points to ensure everyone's safety.
Are you walking or riding?
We are allowing walking at Sylvan Glen and riding tee times at both clubs. Single rider carts are available on request. All golf carts and pull carts are sanitized before and after use.
Can I walk up and play?
We ask that all tee times be booked ahead of time. If you don’t have a tee time booked, you may not be allowed to play. We cannot have groups of people waiting for walk up play to be available.
Please arrive only 15-20 minutes early to avoid creating any large groups. Once at the course you may go to directly to the starter to verify pre-payment and check-in. You may also go into the Pro Shop at Sanctuary or the temporary trailer clubhouse at Sylvan to purchase food, drinks, merchandise and to check in. Beverage cart service will be available during peak times.
The driving range at Sanctuary Lake remains open with all stalls set at least 6 feet apart, and the putting greens at both courses are open. Range baskets are to be returned to the Pro Shop window for the staff to disinfect. Please keep 6 feet of space from anyone else on the putting greens.
Are the restrooms open?
The restrooms in the clubhouses and on the course are open.
|You may also call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 248.619.7600.|
The current irrigation system at Sylvan Glen was put in the ground in 1966, the typical life expectancy is 30 years, and ours is over 50 years old. It has become very costly to operate due to the age and multiple repairs throughout the season. The new irrigation system will improve playability and overall golf course conditions.
What Does This Mean?
Better Golf! The new technology will be much more efficient for the golf course, it will allow for a shorter watering cycle, thus saving on electricity and also labor and maintenance. We are excited for the new irrigation system and appreciate your patience through this process.
New in 2019!
Cruise the course in one of our new carts from EZ Go. Featuring contoured seating, automatic breaking, two USB charging ports for your phones and speakers, integrated cup, ball and tee holders, and industry's largest bag carrier including a cover for those not so sunny rounds!

In the winter season, Sylvan Glen also serves as an excellent venue for cross-country skiing and sledding opportunities (based upon weather). To gain access to cross country and the sledding hill, use the south west entrance off Rochester Road. The entrance is on the west side of the main parking lot. When winter sports are available the main gate leading to the maintenance facility will be open with a chain pulled across the entrance.
