Northern Michigan's championship golf courses include work by some of the country's leading architects -- two Arnold Palmer designs (Manitou Passage and The Legend), Jack Nicklaus’s groundbreaking layout at The Bear, the Jerry Matthews designs at Antrim Dells and A-Ga-Ming, Tom Weiskopf’s award-winning course at Cedar River and Gary Player’s challenging The Wolverine. There are other gems in the area, too – consider courses in Benzie County, including Crystal Mountain and the renowned Arcadia Bluffs, or head into Antrim county to play at Hawks Eye.

Spring, summer and fall are the ideal seasons to hit the courses in our region. Spring is the time to dust off the clubs and get your game back in shape for summer. And when most of America’s better-known golf destinations are sweltering in heat and humidity, in the summer, the coastal hills around Grand Traverse Bay are cool and comfortable all day long. Fall brings refreshing temperatures and courses surrounded by autumn’s colors.

 Course details and information are below.
