Willow Springs Mini Golf Lake Orion Review and Pics

Willow Springs Mini Golf Lake Orion review, pics, and info. Willow Creek putt putt golf course is now known as Willow Springs Entertainment. It features 2 mini golf courses and 2 driving ranges.

Former Detroit Lion Mike Weger had owned Willow Creek Golf and Sport Center for over 30 years but the property was purchased in 2023 by a real estate developer who was initially going to develop the site but as of now are retaining it as a mini golf course and driving range.

UPDATE 4/14/23 – OH NO! Willow Creek Mini Golf in Lake Orion has closed. I’m going to miss as I have been going there since I was little and my kids enjoyed it very much. I’m not sure when (or why) they decided to pack it in but their current website link redirects to the following message – “After over 40 years, Willow Creek has decided to close. The property is under new ownership & we do not know what its future is. Thank you for your patronage over the past four decades!”

UPDATE 4/19/23 – I received an email from the NEW owner of the property at Willow Creek with the following message – “I would like to let you know that as the new owners of Willow Creek we plan to reopen this year as of 5/1 this year. We originally planned to develop the site but have changed our plans due to unforeseen circumstances.”

UPDATE 6/18/23 – One of our readers, Dayna M, notified us that the Willow Creek is no known as Willow Springs. We’ve been in touch with the new owners to check to see if they want to run a coupon for our readers but haven’t heard back. They’ve updated their website with new info and the pics on their website look suspiciously like ours with our watermarks cut out. Hopefully we hear from them soon. Thanks for the headsup Dayna M. I’m glad there’s still mini golf in Lake Orion!


I’ve been taking my family to Willow Creek for mini golf fun for years and I’ve been going to Willow Creek for years. I first started going there decades ago as a kid growing up in Shelby Township. I enjoy Willow Creek because it has an “Up North” feel of mini golf / batting cage attractions without being overly touristy or heavily crowded. Willow Creek is very large and wide open. It’s a great, inexpensive way to spend spring and summer days with kids.


Willow Springs and Sport Center has 2, 18-hole mini golf courses – “Walk In The Woods” and “Sports Mountain”. “Walk In The Woods” is one of the original courses. Walk In The Woods is a scenic par 39 course winds its way along a creek through heavy vegetation. Many holes are elevated and you’ll stroll the heavily-wooded course using many well-maintained stairways. Despite its age, Walk In The Woods is well manicured and quite beautiful. You’ll see quite a few chipmunk friends darting through the course as you play! Fair warning – bring the bug spray if you’re planning on picking this course if the weather is particularly hot and humid.

Sports Mountain is a wide open and sprawling par 40 putt putt course that features a different sports themes and obstacles at each hole. Sports Mountain is a bit more modern and my kids love the different color “greens” at each hole. The course plays through a large, man-made nature “mountain”, waterfall, and large creek that runs into a large pool. You’ll see plenty of frogs and toads along the creek. My family plays both courses quite frequently but prefer Sports Mountain overall.
