Blackheath opened in 1998 and was designed and constructed by Kevin Aldrich. Mr. Aldrich's inspiration to develop this style of layout was brought on by a visit to Scotland. On this trip, he learned of the two uique types of layouts that could be offered by this type of topography. He was able to produce a gem in Rochester, MI.
There are two types of courses in the birthplace of golf which are heathland and links styles. A heathland course is built from farmland and lies inland from the sea. Links courses on the other hand sit next to the sea. As opposed to a links design with their bumpy fairways and deep bunkers, a heathland course offers gently rolling fairways and flat bunkering.
The course opened in 1998 and sits on 128 acres. It features a good test of golf for both men and ladies of all skill levels. Playing to par of 71 the course offers four sets of tees, challenging bunkering, and undulating greens that make for a true but fair round of golf.
Blackheath has already earned quite a reputation. Blackheath was selected to host the United States Amateur Sectional qualifier in 1998.
