Explore Boyne for world-class golf 

By TGE Staff

If you are planning to explore Michigan golf on vacation, a great place to start is with Explore Boyne. 

BOYNE Golf provides an ultimate world-class golfing destination for exploring 10 great courses at three different resorts in northern Michigan. With all-inclusive vacation packages, elite instruction at BOYNE Golf Academy, tournaments, and events, the collection of year-round mountain resorts deliver a one-of-a-kind golfing experience for the sporting enthusiast.  

Boyne Highlands Resort in Harbor Springs is a golf paradise featuring The Heather, a timeless design by Robert Trent Jones Sr.; The Donald Ross Memorial, a composite of the legendary architect’s best-designed holes; The Arthur Hills course, a sweeping, modern design with breathtaking views; and The Moor course, a classic design.

Nearby in Boyne Falls, Boyne Mountain Resort hosts major golf tournaments each year on its 18-hole championship course known as The Alpine due to its popular design and challenge. The aptly named The Monument not only combines an homage to the game’s most important influencers—Donald Ross, Dr. Alister Mackenzie, Robert Trent Jones, George Fazio, and Pete Dye—but also opens with a tee shot high atop the resort’s mountain. Both of the resort’s courses deliver dramatic finishing holes that keep golfers talking long after completing their rounds. 

In Petoskey, Bay Harbor Golf Club showcases the sweeping land- and waterscape in northern Michigan at its finest with its three distinctive nine-hole designed courses. The Links, in true Scottish flair, hugs the shoreline of Lake Michigan; The Quarry, winds through an abandoned shale quarry, 40-foot gorges, stone cliffs, and natural ponds; while The Preserve captures the tranquility of playing amid dense hardwoods, lush greens, and wildlife. 

Perched high on the bluffs above Little Traverse Bay, BOYNE also offers an 18-hole course at Crooked Tree Golf Club. The course recently was retouched by Arthur Hills and his team of course architects as they raised tee boxes and re-designed greens to create a memorable round. 

Stay and play packages in world-class lodging options start as low as $114 per person per night. Head to Explore Boyne to learn more and start the exploration.
