Howard Hill puts practice golf balls on the shelf at the Lakes of Taylor starter house.
The city of Taylor owns and operated the Lakes of Taylor Golf Club. It is an 18-hole golf course open to the public. This sprawling complex includes a clubhouse, driving range, certified golf instructor, pro shop and starter house.
Last week, I visited the recreational sporting facilities, at 25505 Northline Road in Taylor.
Shooting par for the 18 holes is a total of 72 strokes with 9 hole par being 36 and the same for the scoring in the back nine. The longest holes are Nos. 8, 9, 10 and 17, all par-5s.
Jeffery Dobek is the director of Golf, Parks & Recreation for Taylor. He keeps an eye on the course from his office at the Lakes of Taylor complex.
For those who wish some professional guidence in their game, Aaron Mutok is the certified golf instructor and member of the Golf Academy of America.
Lakes of Taylor fairways are lush and the greens are manicured well for the many Downriver and Dearborn area golfers who use the nearby facility.
Howard Hill is an employee and runs the starter house. “I like working here and have been doing this for the past five years,” said Howard Hill, who runs the starter house.
Hill grew up in Dearborn and is a 1969 graduate of Edsel Ford High School.
