Swartz Creek gets its name from the creek that traverses through pretty much the entirety of the course along with another creek.

This is a beautiful course with wooded areas to the north and shares the southern boundary with Route 69 and so is easily accessible from anywhere in the city.

The course has a nice linear layout with parallel fairways. Although the course is not long, the fairways appear to be lengthy. The fairways are fairly open with decently large-sized raised greens.

There are no sand bunkers on the course and the hazards come in the form of water, mostly due to the creek where lay-up or carryover is required. 

The ground is flat with hardly any undulations and is walkable.

Measuring 6660 yards from the back tees, this is not a lengthy course either.

There are 3 sets of tees, and beginners, as well as seniors, will find this course to be fun to play as much as an advanced golfer would.

For people who are short on time, the 9-hole executive course that measures 2570 yards would be a good option to consider.

The course also encourages juniors through a variety of options that even include free golf.
