Lincoln Hills Golf Course Sled Hill in Birmingham, Michigan review, pics, and video. Lincoln Hills Golf Course sledding info and hours for the winter season.
I’m usually leery about sled hills on golf courses but Lincoln Hills is an exception. Golf course sledding hills usually mean long walks, no restrooms and little structure. Lincoln Hills is different. The main sled hill is located just outside the golf course clubhouse – just steps away from the parking lot. The clubhouse is USUALLY even open during winter months (weather permitting) and can serve as a warming shelter or a place to use the restroom. When the clubhouse IS open, they even serve hot chocolate and snacks for a nominal fee. Sledding hours are from 10a-5p.

And the sled hill? It’s greasy-fast, super steep and can provide plenty of sledding thrills for even the most jaded sledder. The sled hill grades out nicely from east to west (from mega steep to less steep) so smaller kids, or those who want a tamer ride, can enjoy the “short” portion of the hill to the west. Even more impressive, the wooden staircase at the bottom of the hill comes in handy for safe trips back to the top! (see pics below)

A minimum of 2″ of snow is required for optimal performance. Depending on usage of the sled hill after a snow event, staff will determine if it will remain open for sledding. There are times when the hill has been well used and the dirt begins to show, making it a hazard for usage. Cross country skiing could still be open even if the sled hill is closed.
City staff will leave a message on the phone, 248-530-1670, on a daily basis to inform guests about whether or not the sledding hill and clubhouse is open.
