There's a moment of quiet when you step into the first tee box, 18 holes of Pure Michigan golf stretch out before you, glimpses of aquamarine waters peeking through the trees beyond the dogleg ahead. You swing, strike and smile as the ball flies over an impossibly green fairway.
As soon as the snow melts--and until it falls again--golf is the game in northern Michigan. Long summer days, bay breezes, and meticulously tended grounds make for perfect conditions. Designer courses from legends like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer are nestled between forests and lakes. Even the spring and fall bring their own beauty, with cherry blossoms and autumn color that take your breath away. Take a look at these seasonal packages and get ready to plan your golf getaway.
