Top Michigan Golf Resorts & Courses
Trailing only California and Florida, Michigan boasts the third most golf courses in the United States. And - bordered by four Great Lakes, vast woodlands, and rolling mountains - these golf courses are immersed in stunning scenery. The following resorts allow you to partake in some of the country’s best golfing, as they feature courses designed by links legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Tee off with views of Lake Michigan, cascading hills, and wandering wildlife. Wide fairways and forgiving pin locations will appease the beginners while the challenging courses will test the experts’ skills with tree-lined fairways, tiered greens, and knee-deep rough. And, after an exciting round on the course, the frequenters of the fairway can relax with rejuvenating spa treatments and soothing Jacuzzi soaks. At these resorts, luxury meets the links!

Otsego Club and Resort

Gaylord, Michigan

View +1 (800) 752 - 5510

In Northern Michigan you will find the stunning Sturgeon River Valley, and on the headwaters of the river rests Otsego Club & Resort. Here, the natural landscape soaks into the resort, providing you with an unparalleled vacation. Two golf courses, The Classic and The Tribute, are a highlight. Tribute is the newer of the two and named to tribute golf, the Gaylord community, and the natural beauty of the north. Along with golf, hiking the river valley and fishing on the headwaters are a must!

+1 (888) 683 - 1538

When it comes to describing this resort, “grand” may be the most appropriate adjective. 900 acres of rolling green lawns, lush woodlands, and powdery beaches await at this lakeside oasis. A large portion of the green is in the form of The Bear golf course, a masterful Jack Nicklaus concoction that - with its tiered greens, deep grassy roughs, and seemingly bottomless pot bunkers - is widely regarded as the toughest course in Michigan. After an exciting day on the course, relax at the onsite spa.


A-Ga-Ming Golf Resort

Kewadin, Michigan

+1 (866) 932 - 0536

Just a few miles from Lake Michigan, A-Ga-Ming Golf Resort is relaxation and splendor. Meaning “on the shore,” A-Ga-Ming utilizes the neighboring Torch Lake and Lake Michigan for a gorgeous golfing venture. The original course, Torch, grants views of Torch Lake and desires accuracy. As the newest course, The Dells has a strictly sculpted front nine transitioning to a more naturally set back nine. Lastly, Sundance is hugged by Torch Lake and Lake Michigan with beautifully sculpted greens.


Garland Lodge and Resort

Lewiston, Michigan

After a day on the course, unwind with a massage at the spa, soak in the Jacuzzi, or wade in the pool!


UAW Black Lake

Onaway, Michigan

+1 (866) 456 - 5717

UAW Black Lake's close proximity to Black Lake Golf Club means that it's ridiculously easy to wake up, grab your clubs, and hit the links!

When designer extraordinaire Rees Jones created Black Lake Golf Club, he did so with then intention of not just having two or three so-called signature holes, but to make EVERY hole worthy of the front cover of a magazine. That is just one of the reasons that the course was placed #44 in Golf Digest’s “100 Greatest Public Courses in America” in May 2012 and placed #9 in the Best Value category. Bring your friends, family, or just yourself and experience one of the best courses in Michigan!

Double JJ Resort

Rothbury, Michigan
