Let's take a look at some of the best golf holes in Lansing that you need to play.

1.  No. 17 at Eagle Eye Golf Club.  I've played this golf course twice and it's very nice.  Lansing.org tells us the iconic island green replica of the famous 17th hole at the TPC at Sawgrass, Eagle Eye is a must play that should be on every golfer's bucket list this spring.

2.  No. 16 at College Fields.  This golf course is just about ten minutes away from where I live.  It's a beautiful but very challenging course.  The No. 16 hole is 249 yards long from the white tees.  All I can say is good luck because this is a tough hole that requires major focus.  (lansing.org) 

3.  No. 18 at Timber Ridge.  Lansing.org describes Timber Ridge as tree lined fairways, rolling hills and the highest point in Clinton County.  The par-four 18th is a fantastic finishing hole.  The green sits beyond a rock bordered pond, with a row of sand bunkers to make your shots much more challenging.

4.  No. 18 at Hawk Hollow.  I love this golf course.  One of my favorites in the Greater Lansing area.  Not only a beautiful golf course, but 27 holes to play at any given time.  Lansing.org tells us that No. 18 curls around Hawk Lake and it does require a shot over the water.  Once you're on the green, tip your hat and putt away.

5.  No. 2 at Eldorado-Blue.  I probably play the most golf at Eldorado Golf Course in Mason.  Yes, another one of my favorite courses to play.  No. 2 is the toughest hole on the toughest nine at the 27 hole course.  It's Uphill through the trees and 221 yards from the back tees.  Overall, Eldorado is just a fun course with really good greens.  (lansing.org)
