Our goal at MICHIGAN GOLF MATRIX is to provide quality reviews of the public courses in Michigan, from tee to green and everything in between.  

We offer the most comprehensive evaluation of each course from opening holes to finishing hole based on our GOLF MATRIX system and we strive for a perfect balance of course styles we review.  

Michigan Golf Matrix will review every public golf course, considering all Michigan courses, from championship courses to neighborhood ones.

We work to be the top resource for Michigan golf course reviews.

The Golf Matrix System

Our Golf Matrix system uses a 10-point scale that evaluates multiple features on each hole and for the course overall. We rate water hazards, elevation changes, quality of each tee box and sets of tees, comment on generous fairways, challenging greens, putting surfaces, quality of sand traps, the variety of terrain, course conditions and course layout. Whether in good condition or poor, the amazing part is the Golf Matrix rating system provides accurate and quality ratings based on tangible qualities and not preference.  
After individually rating the features for each hole, we calculate the aggregate score for the hole. We then calculate the ratings for each 9 and the entire course, considering everything from clubhouse, staff friendliness, and amenities (such as driving range or putting greens) to parking and service.

We also provide key information golfers want to know:  Are tee blocks level?  What is the length of the rough?  What is the general green speed and size?

Golf Matrix Value Rating

Our value rating gives a fair estimation of each course, clubhouse, carts, refreshments, amenities and friendly staff service compared to the cost of playing – just what an amateur golfer wants to know.

The system allows viewers to quickly see the very best values available.

All levels of golfers will be able to easily see and understand which courses provide the best values.

The Michigan Golf Matrix is a great tool for beginners or the long hitters as well.
