The 18-hole course at Franklin Hills Country Club features 6,923 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 73.0 and it has a slope rating of 128. Designed by Donald J. Ross, ASGCA, the Franklin Hills golf course opened in 1927.
The Franklin Hills golf course is hailed as one of the few remaining true Donald Ross courses; it is a hidden gem.
The trademarks of a Ross design are evident at Franklin Hills. His effortless designs use the existing natural landscape to challenge golfers of all skill levels. His greens invite run – up shots but will give the overly bold golfer fits with trouble over the greens. Accurate iron play, precise handling of the short game and consistent putting are part of the Ross test.
