Lyon Oaks Golf Course

Lyon Oaks Golf Course is an Arthur Hills-designed, 18-hole course on 230 acres. This par 72 championship golf course has an "Up North" feel nestled in southwest Oakland County with hardwood forests and wetlands. Wide fairways enhance playability.

Wetlands and ponds increase challenge of play. Sand bunkers and freshwater lakes provide a strategic challenge for accomplished golfers. Multiple tees on every hole make the course playable and enjoyable by all level players. This course includes a state-of-the-art practice facility with target greens and a practice bunker.

The picturesque clubhouse features expansive views of the course, accommodating parties up to 450 for wedding receptions, banquets and educational meetings. Food service is provided by Oak Management.
