Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

Archived News Release: September 8, 2020 - ​The City of Ann Arbor has partnered with the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner to collaborate on a project at Huron Hills Golf Course (HHGC) that will consist of wetland creation and creek restoration to what will formally be called Benz Creek. Currently, there are a number of issues on the golf course, including stream channel erosion, periodic flooding, limited stormwater detention and limited water quality treatment.

The many ecological goals include adding stormwater detention, phosphorus reduction and habitat improvement to improve the stormwater impact in the area. From a recreational standpoint, these improvements look to improve design, playability and reduce the impact of rain events to the golf course.

Construction is scheduled to begin Sept. 8, 2020. The course will be open throughout construction and will have a varying number of holes available for play. Construction and restoration are expected to be completed in the Spring of 2021.
