About the Course

“On behalf of the staff, I would like to personally welcome and thank you for visiting Eagle Crest Golf Club.”

Wes Blevins, PGA Director of Golf

Eagle Crest Golf Club, located in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan, features an 18-hole championship golf course and a three-tiered practice range with a spectacular view of scenic Ford Lake. The facility offers a full-service bar & grille, including an outdoor patio and a banquet facility room with one of the most picturesque 19th hole settings in southeast Michigan.

Owned by Eastern Michigan University, Eagle Crest is the home course for the Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams and is also open to the public. The course has locker rooms, a golf shop and a PGA Teaching Academy on the property along with its state-of-the-art practice facility and a short game area, enabling golfers of all abilities to benefit and refine their skills.

The course opened in 1989, and was originally designed by Karl Litten of Boca Raton, Florida. In 2012, Eagle Crest underwent major renovations under the direction of architect Jim Lipe. On October 1, 2013, the Eastern Michigan University Board of Regents passed a resolution to name the golf course Roy E. Wilbanks Eagle Crest Golf Club. It was through his vision and consistency of commitment that Eagle Crest Resort is such a significant part of the EMU and Ypsilanti community . The par-72 course provides golfers with one of the most challenging yet fair and fun tests of golf in southeast Michigan. With four sets of tees providing a variety of options and sightlines for all golfers, the course stretches to a length of 6,911 yards, with a course rating of 73.0 and a slope rating of 142 from the championship markers.

Several holes border the banks of Ford Lake, offering beautiful views throughout your round. Those include the course's signature hole, the par-5 16th, which runs along the lake and has a peninsular green. The hole was recently cited by USA Today as one of Detroit’s “Dream 18-Most Memorable Holes.” Eagle Crest Golf Club is an excellent value, where you can enjoy golf, food and drink in a grand setting that continues to receive Golf Digest Magazine’s Four-Star “Best Places To Play” rating.
