Detailed description

Leslie Park Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Leslie Park golf course first opened for play in 1967. The course was designed by E. Lawrence Packard and Arthur Hills.

Leslie Park is one of two municipal courses in Ann Arbor.

Playing at 6591 yards from the back tees, and with a rating/slope of 71.9/127, Leslie Park will challenge better golfers, however bogey golfers need not fear. The course plays nearly 800 yards shorter from the whites.

Like many of the courses in Michigan, Leslie Park's two nines have distinctly different characters. Most of the holes on the front nine are hilly, with either elevated tees or greens, or both. The back nine, on the other hand, is relatively flat. Elevation changes come into play on just three holes�and those are not significant.

#5 is a 407 yard par-4 that plays like a roller coaster ride. From the tee, the fairway slopes slightly down and then back up to a crest about 200 yards out. At that point, it takes a steep dive down into a ravine and then back up again to the green. From the ravine bottom, it�s about 120 to the green.

#17 is the par-3 with a 150 yard shot across a pond to a green nestled against a hillside. The tee box is right next to a barn, which adds some charm to the whole scene.

Championship tees: 6,591 yards, course rating 72.0, slope rating 129.

Back tees: 6,222 yards, course rating 70.3, slope rating 125.

Middle tees (M): 5,805 yards, course rating 68.1, slope rating 123.

Middle tees (W): 5,805 yards, course rating 74.5, slope rating 132.

Forward tees: 4,985 yards, course rating 69.4, slope rating 121.
