You might not know it by doing a drive by, or even pulling into the parking lot, but Rackham is one of the coolest muni courses you will ever find. Situated right next to the Detroit Zoo (which is actually in Huntington Woods about 10 miles North of the D), this course has some of the classic features of a Donald Ross design even 90 years after the legendary architect finished the project. While Ross was very busy in the first part of the 20th century around these parts, he didn't build too many public courses, so you rarely get an opportunity to try your luck on one of his courses without being a member or at least plunking down a bunch of cash. Don't be scared away by the rough around the edges, that's all part of the charm at Rackham. Just don't expect perfect conditions like you'd find at most of Ross's masterpieces. Rackham will test your game tee to green and the wind often adds an extra element.
