Dearborn Hills Golf Course will close this upcoming season due to the significant and ongoing damage sustained by the course since the June 2021 catastrophic flooding event. Despite year-round efforts to bring the course back to viability, many areas have not healed since last June. The course lost 42 days last season due to flooding, and this year would have required roping off a significant portion of the course. The flooding damage has been compounded by upstream logjams in the Rouge River, which continue to divert river flow onto the course fairways. While the course will be closed for the season, the City of Dearborn will continue its maintenance activities throughout the summer, including working on a long-term strategy for logjam prevention in the Rouge River.
All reservation deposits will be refunded. Banquet events will continue as planned through mid-June. The City of Dearborn has no plans to sell Dearborn Hills Golf Course. This decision is based solely on bringing the grounds to a viable state for the benefit of our residents. We are focused on the work ahead and will provide updates on our progress along the way. Thank you for your understanding.
