Tullymore Golf Resort has the unique golf experience. Two 18-hole courses immersed in midwestern beauty will entice even the most elite. Tullymore, the first of the two courses, was designed by architect Jim Engh who incorporated gentle hills and gullies on 800 acres of woods, meadows, and wetlands. St. Ives Golf Club has been noted as creator Jerry Matthew’s best work. Its steep glacial changes, wetlands, and hardwoods provide a scenic adventure. Enjoy the comfort and views of Tullymore!
Variety is the name of the game at Treetops Resort. One area of wealth is in its five golf courses. The first course, Masterpiece, is rightly named. Settled on the headwaters of Pigeon River and features challenging natural valleys. Premier is a perfect balance between challenge and forgiveness while the Signature course specially encases undisturbed natural areas. Tradition and Threetops are the last two to top it off. If that’s not enough, Treetops also features a full spa and winter skiing!
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.
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.
A plentiful Northeast Michigan Thunder Bay Resort is over-flowing with adventures for wandering couples and active families. With splendid views of the countryside, its Hillman Golf Course has fairways shaped by hardwoods, birches, and marshlands as well as protected greens for a testing game. Just a short way from the resort, elk-viewing tours and geo-caching immerse you into the northeast scene. View lighthouses and wineries and return to Thunder Bay for a relaxing night’s stay.
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!
Featuring a quartet of championship golf courses, this resort brings a whole new meaning to the golf term “fore.” Swing away on any of the four courses; Fountains, Reflections, Swampfire, and Monarch all offer elite links experiences with signature holes. Drive across the world’s longest single-span log bridge, maneuver through varying terrain, and escape from snowy white sand bunkers. After a day on the course, unwind with a massage at the spa, soak in the Jacuzzi, or wade in the pool!
Golf competitions, mountain explorations, and spa rejuvenations are all waiting for you at Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa. Mountain Ridge Golf Course utilizes mountain terrain with high elevations and towering pines. Bestie Valley shares equally stunning greens and fairways. For more, ride up the chairlift while soaking in the views, then grab a sled for a cruise down the Crystal Coaster Alpine Slide. Take the family or just your partner in crime for a relaxing getaway at Crystal Mountain!
A short drive from the busy Motor City is half a century of luxury at The Inn at St. John’s. This comfortable stay is perfect for a couple’s getaway or a business affair. Hit the links where 27 holes of clean, sculpted greens and a driving range will entertain for a sunny afternoon or a professional outing. Grab a bite at The Burger Loft to rave about that great drive or round up a business deal. Spend the evening under the waterfall in the indoor pool or warming up in the Jacuzzi.
The Thoroughbred Golf Club, Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark, and horseback trails: The Double JJ Resort has the whole family covered! The Thoroughbred Golf Course combines beauty and solitude for dramatic yet playable golf. It’s the only course where horseback riders have the right of way over golf carts along the wood-side fairways. Take the kids to Gold Rush, where they can splash down the tallest indoor waterslide while you float the lazy river. Fun for the whole family is all at Double JJ!
Shanty Creek Resorts' four championship golf courses offer four different experiences! Cedar River is a tree-lined puzzle that requires surgeon-like accuracy. The Legend is an Arnold Palmer design with cascading hilltops and views of the sparkling Lake Bellaire. Schuss Mountain is a roller coaster ride of elevation changes, rolling wetlands, and abundant wildlife. Summit is the original Shanty Creek golf course and features wide fairways and blazingly fast greens. Swing away!
Displaying the lush landscapes of Northern Michigan, this resort’s very own Hawk’s Eye Golf Course caters to amateur and professional golfers alike. The beginning linksman will appreciate the wide fairways and forgiving greens. The frequenter of the fairways will revel in the strategy involved on this risk/reward course. Golfers of all levels will admire the lush, meandering hills and the tree-lined valleys serving as the backdrop for this picturesque course.
Luxury meets the links at this golf resort, which features 45 championship golf holes overlooking breathtaking Lake Michigan! The Links, The Preserve, and The Quarry feature vast fairways, towering bluffs, shoreline views, a cascading waterfall, and challenging pin locations. After sinking that last putt, explore the water and the land by fishing Lake Michigan and hiking through the tree-lined nature trails. Pamper yourself with a deep tissue massage at the spa or sway in a lakeside hammock.
