Nike Junior Golf Camps Oakland University


Oakland University is a public university located in the cities of Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills, Michigan. Situated on a 1,443-acre (584 ha) campus, it was co-founded by Matilda Dodge Wilson and John A. Hannah. It is the only major research university in Oakland County, from which the school derives its name, and serves much of the Metro Detroit region.


The natural beauty of a gentle rolling terrain, variety of oak, ash and cherry trees combined with 18 magnificent holes of championship golf makes Cherry Creek a truly unique golfing experience and one of Metro Detroit’s best golf destinations.

The Lanny Wadkins/Mike Bylen design is a challenging invitation to all players with 4 sets of tees measuring from 5012 to 6784 yards.In addition to our magnificent course we have one of the largest golf practice facilities in Metro Detroit and in the state of Michigan.

Voted the “Best Practice Facility in Southeast Michigan”, Cherry Creek Golf Club offers an incredible opportunity for golfers of all experience and skill. The practice facility includes a 50 station driving range with 7 target greens of various yardage, 2 putting greens and 3 practice greens with bunkers for putting and chipping to accommodate every shot that’s within 20 yards of the green. Metro Detroiters and Hour Magazine voted Cherry Creek “Best Public Golf Course” in Detroit.


Arthur Hills is one of the best designers today, and Pine Trace is a testament to his accomplishments. This is a beautiful course from start to finish, and every hole offers a different challenge and scenic view. 

The scenery at Pine Trace is fulfilling to say the least. The landscape of the course is laid so that many natural characteristics are in play. There is much life in the course, as trees mostly isolate you from other holes and the outside world giving Pine Trace a variety in scenery.

A common link between Hill's courses is that he designs them for anyone and everyone to enjoy. Pine Trace offers four distinct tee levels that provide enough challenge for anyone. The Championship Tees measure about 6600 yards. The Forward Tees measure about 5000 yards. The conditioning of the course at Pine Trace is of paramount importance to the staff and ownership. Pine Trace strives to provide the finest conditions within the public course sector of Southeast Michigan.

Pine Trace Golf Club has been consistently recognized as providing a great value for a good round of golf on a well designed and maintained golf course. We are sure that if you play our course you will feel the same.
