Welcome the summer season with a vacation that you’ll never forget. Whether you're looking for a family getaway, a trip with your golfing buddies, or even a place to host a relaxing business retreat, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa offers everything you need for a spectacular experience.
Located just north of Traverse City, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is a lakeside retreat resting on 900 acres in Northern Michigan. Discover 54 holes of championship golf across three beautiful courses: The Bear, The Wolverine, and Spruce Run. Each course offers its own distinct personality and breathtaking views and make for an excellent way to enjoy the summer sun and natural surroundings. This year, two of their courses are also celebrating major milestones: The Wolverine turns 20 while Spruce Run turns 40!
"Summer means golf season at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa," said Public Relations Manager Jillian Manning. "We have three great courses to choose from in one of Northern Michigan's most beautiful settings. Whether you're a first-time player or scratch golfer, you can create the perfect experience."
Your experience can be further catered to your tastes with the resort's variety of golf packages. Their packages take the stress out of planning your getaway by including all the details in one exceptional rate. You'll be able to enjoy comfortable onsite accommodations, rounds of golf on any of their three courses, breakfast at the Sweetwater American Bistro, and much more.
Their onsite 2,000-square-foot Golf Academy offers even more golf opportunities to indulge in during your stay. You will find three heated, indoor/outdoor hitting bays that feature mirrors and motion-capture technology to analyze your swings. And if you're new to the game of golf, or interested in a refresher, they provide three options for golf instruction: the Adam Schriber Tour Prep Golf, the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School, and their own Grand Traverse Resort and Spa PGA Instructors.
When you need that break from the greens, book a soothing massage at the spa or hop aboard the complimentary shuttle to the neighboring Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel, where you can tempt Lady Luck over a variety of popular gambling opportunities. If you'd rather stay onsite, the resort offers five indoor and four outdoor tennis courts, four indoor/outdoor pools, a variety of fitness programs such as yoga and spinning, and a private beach on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay. Spend an afternoon kayaking or fishing or simply bask in the refreshing scenery and unwind!
"Two things set Grand Traverse Resort and Spa apart as a golf destination," said Manning. "First, we have three designer courses that have won awards and hosted professional tournaments. Second, just steps away from our golf facility, you'll find incredible amenities, including dining, shopping, and a first-class spa. The resort gives golfers the complete vacation package."
However you choose to spend your time at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, rest assured that you will have everything you need for a grand vacation. Make your next summer golf vacation one to remember!
