Book a Tee Time

We have implemented a new online booking system for the 2023 season. 

When booking your first tee time of the year, you will need to create a new log in. You will be able to use this going forward for any of your tee time reservations. 

 

Before Selecting a Tee Time:  

Sign-in or create an account to book a tee time (select the ‘Login/Register’ button on page) – Once created, you will always be able to book a tee time with ease.

 

  1. Click the button below that says book a tee time. A new window will open.

  2. Use the menu icon in the topic left corner to select the parameters of your desired tee time. 

  3. Click search to filter to your desired results.

  4. Select the tee time you prefer.

  5. Make your reservation.

Cancellation Policy:

Your tee time reservation is non-refundable within 12 hours of your schedule tee time, but can be transferred, should you want to send others in your place. Last minute cancellations and no-shows are very damaging to the financial security of Golf Courses and we want to do everything we can to keep our staff employed, financially secure and safe. We know this policy is new to most, but it will help to keep our business healthy and viable.

  • Cancellations prior to 24 hours of your tee time can be issued a rain check or full refund.

  • Cancellations from 24 to 12 hours prior to your scheduled tee time will be issued a rain check.

  • Cancellations inside of 12 hours, or a no show of your tee time will receive no refund or rain check.

  • In case of inclement weather, rain checks will be available at golf course discretion. 

  • Should you need to cancel your tee time please contact our Pro Shop directly at (248) 922.0300.

 

Effective 3.20.23 all credit card transactions will be subject to a 3% convenience fee.

By proceeding with this transaction, you are acknowledging that you are responsible to pay this fee and you authorize us to charge your credit card the additional amount necessary to cover this fee. For those who prefer not to pay a convenience fee, please note that the use of a debit card does not incur this fee. The consumer should carefully consider which of these two options meets their needs prior to conducting the transaction.

Please be advised due to the road construction on I-75, we recommend all groups plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled tee time. 
 

Aerification Schedule:

This fall we will begin our annual greens aerification. Thank you for your understanding while we perform this standard and necessary maintenance procedure. Annually, we perform this to just one set of 9 holes at a time thus leaving 18 holes in peak playing condition. This year our aerification schedule will be as follows:

 

  • September 13, 2023 - Holes 19 -27

  • September 20, 2023- Holes 1-9

  • October 3, 2023 - Holes 10-18

Please note, all dates are subject to change due to the weather. 

 

 

 

Why is aerification important at Shepherd's Hollow?

Aerification is nothing to be dreaded, but something that should be welcomed! 


Turf needs four basic items to survive: soil, water, air and sunlight. Soil and sun we have plenty of (in most cases), but air and water are essential and getting them to the roots of the turf plants are a big reason why we punch holes in the ground. Water and air movement into the soil gets limited over time for a few reasons and our goal is to combat that to give you healthy, well-performing greens.

One reason is that. If you’ve ever played on a fairway or green that feels spongy under your feet, this will help you understand what thatch is. It is made of the dead and decaying parts of turf plants, and it accumulates as the grass grows. If it is not removed, it forms that spongy layer that you feel and doesn’t let air and water into the ground for the living roots. So…we need to remove it, or at least poke a hole through it.

A second reason is compaction. The soil under the turf gets compacted from all the foot traffic of golfers, as well as the constant mowing and rolling equipment that prepares the surfaces throughout the season. As soil compacts, it loses its ability to hold enough water and air to keep the plants alive. Aerification loosens up the soil, and allows for room for roots to grow and capture this air and water.

The third main reason is soil modification. You’ll notice that following an aerification process the holes on the greens are filled with sand. Sand provides a good growing medium for the turf and improves playability for our golfers. It improves the way the surface drains and also provides for a firmer, smoother putting surface.
