With more than 200 golf courses and top golf resorts like Grand Traverse and Treetops tucked into the rustic countryside, northern Michigan is one of the United States\' top summertime golf getaways. Wolverine State native Brandon Tucker offers a primer on the region.
For golfers, it doesn\'t get much better than watching a well-struck drive sail through cool blue sky and slowly descend into the middle of a beautiful and naturally framed fairway 100 feet or more below
If northern Michigan golf has a signature, it\'s the elevated tee shot. Just about every course here has one, and some have several.
This is ski country in winter, and the golf courses wind around the same steep grades. A low-handicap golf-design purist might scoff at a track like the Rick Smith Signature at Treetops with its dozen-odd elevated tee boxes, but few regular duffers can resist letting one rip.
The sheer quantity of golf in northern Michigan is astounding. You\'ll pass a course every few miles, no matter how remote the country road.
But quality and value are what really set the area apart. More than a dozen courses regularly make national rankings, but the relatively remote location (several hours by car from Detroit and Chicago) keeps prices down. Most public courses are well under $100, even on a summer weekend, and none top $200.
