The course at Flint Golf Club was designed by Champion Golfer Willie Park Jr. in 1918. Park won the Open Championship in 1887 and 1889, and is world renowned for his golf course design: with Olympia Fields and Maidstone to his name. Flint is one of several Willie Park courses in this area, including Red Run, Pine Lake, Battle Creek, and Meadowbrook.
The course plays 6,671 yards from the tips, with a 72.1 rating and 126 slope. It follows the typical Willie Park design with an outer nine rotating around an inner nine. Unique to Flint Golf club are five 3-par and five 5-par holes that add much more variety to your round. Sam Snead set the course record in June 1963 shooting a 61.
In 2013, Flint Golf Club was voted Most Scenic in Genesee County and one only has to walk our course to recognize that honor.
Greens, tees and fairways are a combination of poa annua and creeping bluegrass. We’ve hosted a number of tournaments over the years, from the PGA Carling Open in 1957 (first time winner Paul Harney) to many State championships, National and State qualifiers.
Below is a course layout for a better understanding of how Flint’s gem is nestled within a city. We look forward to your visit as a member, guest or tournament participant.
