Here in our state we have the second most public courses in the country despite having one of the shorter seasons.
Northern Michigan has long been called “The Summer golf capital of the world”, and with good reason. Golf Digest has recognized ten tracks from our state among the greatest in the land. Nine of the ten are in Northern Lower Michigan (wherever “Northern Michigan” starts-Houghton Lake?).
Arcadia Bluffs in Arcadia is at number 10 in the country. Forest Dunes in Roscommon is at number 20. True North in Harbor Springs is next at 33.
Tullymore in Stanwood is at number 36. Black Lake in Onaway is 44th.
Eagle Eye near Lansing checks in at 53. Bay Harbor near Petoskey is at 66.
Elk Ridge in Atlanta is number 69. The Bear at Grand Traverse near Traverse City is number 81. Finally, The Gailes at Lakewood Shores in Oscoda is number 88.
The values at many of these spectacular destinations are better than ever.
Sure, with gas over $4.00 it hurts, but not as much as you might think.
The difference in gas at $4.00 vs. $3.00 for a round trip Northern Michigan golf vacation comes out to about $15-$20.00-or the price of lunch. Would you really let that stop you from enjoying a beautiful Northern Michigan golf resort, especially if you are sharing expenses?
