The golfing facilities in the Cadillac area want to hear from their golfers.
With as many holes of golf as any golfer could possibly need—all within 20 minutes of the downtown area—the different golfing destinations are offering a unique opportunity to take a short survey and be entered in the Cadillac Golf Getaway.
The winners of three drawings over the next three months will win golfing getaway packages, which include four nights of lodging and five days of golf at eight of the region’s different courses for the price of two—including a cart. It is a package valued at more than $1,000.
Before the drawings take place on July 15, Aug. 15 and Sept. 15, explore Cadillac golf and some of its destinations.
Evergreen Resort, formerly known as McGuire’s, is a great place to start for golf and lodging in the area. The golf features the 18-hole Spruce course, and the nine-hole Norway course and improvements have been made recently across the board at the popular family resort.
The Spruce is on a hillside overlooking Lake Cadillac and winds through a pine forest with challenging smaller greens from the classic era of golf architecture. The Norway course is played most often by casual golfers or beginners. Various packages are available through the golf season and the facility also rents golf clubs for the visiting enthusiast.
Cadillac as a region also offers a variety of other destinations, such as Eldorado Golf Course, Missaukee Golf Club, Caberfae Peaks Golf Course, Lakewood on the Green, the historic Cadillac Country Club, and a Bruce Matthews-designed Emerald Vale Golf Club.
Cadillac offers great golfing and much more in terms of activities and attractions, with its forest-covered hills, rivers, lakes, trails, and resources designed for fun and adventure. Not only is the region the geographic center of the state—boasting the highest elevation—but also there are nearly 500,000 acres of National Forest in the area.
The Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau describes Cadillac as a playground that is for the taking, and golf is a great part of that playground.
