A Donald Ross Designed, Hidden Gem
Our pride and joy is our exquisite, 18 hole golf course designed by the Dean of Architects, Donald Ross. Our club includes a full service chipping, putting, and sand practice area, and a large driving range.
The Club's Course is challenging and demanding, yet playable and rewarding. WGCC offers four sets of tees depending upon player capabilities. Donald Ross designed the course in a beautiful parkland setting. Tree-lined, with the Rouge River running through, we have a truly established hidden gem. Strategically placed ponds, bunkers, and doglegs provide different decisions on each hole. Several elevated tees and greens accentuate the character of our golf course.
Western has the distinction, as do several other clubs in this area, to have had its course designed by the Dean of Architects. After immigrating to the United States, this son of a stone mason would make his mark in the golf world as perhaps the greatest and most prolific designer of all time. His trademarks at Western are apparent with the purity of the layout, excellent use of land, with small and subtle greens. The test of endurance is evident at Western in that throughout the years, the footprint of Ross's design remains as it was when he built it in 1927, a very challenging eighteen holes.
