Cedar River was designed by PGA player & renowned architect, Tom Weiskopf, and named among America's Top 100 Resort Courses by Golf Week and among the Top 1,000 Courses in the World by Rolex. One of Golf Magazine's "Top Ten in the U.S. You Can Play," this northern Michigan course offers five tees.
The Legend was designed by Arnold Palmer and has been awarded 4½ stars in Golf Digest's "Places to Play Directory". Cascading over hilltops with stunning views, including views of Lake Bellaire, and into valleys alongside crystal clear waters, The Legend was named one of the top four resort courses in the United States by the readers of Golf Magazine.
Schuss Mountain is annually named one of the top public courses in Michigan. A challenging course carved into Pure Michigan, Schuss Mountain delivers the challenge golfers seek throughout 6,922 yards of abundant wetlands, rolling hills, and wildlife.
Summit is Shanty Creek's original course. This William Diddel design is one of northern Michigan's gems rolling gently across the hills of Antrim County. This course is a long-time favorite among golfers who favor wide fairways and fast greens.
