About Olde Mill Golf Course
Since 1958, Olde Mill has provided residents of Schoolcraft, Kalamazoo, and surrounding areas with challenging golf courses, beautiful scenery, and – most of all – a fun, inviting place to visit. With the area’s best banquet hall, live music nights, and a massive wedding venue, Olde Mill has earned a reputation for providing locals – and visitors – with a relaxing place to get away, surround themselves with nature, and enjoy the company of family and friends.
Designed by Gil Stiver, the 18-hole course at the Olde Mill Golf Club facility in Schoolcraft, Michigan features 6,195 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 69.2 and it has a slope rating of 117 on Blue Grass. The traditional layout is the perfect example of classic Midwestern golf.
The layout winds along Flowerfield Creek, which comes into play throughout. The front nine has six water holes and there are two more on the back, but water isn’t the only challenge you’ll run into. The challenging golf course can feel much longer than the 6,180-yard length that’s listed on the scorecard. The front nine is more open, but also subject to the wind, and the back nine gets much tighter with most of the holes framed by dense woodlands. There are numerous sand traps strategically placed throughout. In addition to the golf course, Olde Mill also has a driving range and practice green available that are great for warming up.
