SPRUCE RUN

SPRUCE RUN GOLF COURSE TRAVERSE CITY, MI

Spruce Run, the Resort’s original resort course, began as a nine-hole Acme Public Golf Course and was expanded to 18 holes in the 1970s. The course was redesigned as a 6,741-yard par-72 course in 1979 by former University of Michigan Golf Coach William Newcomb and renamed The Resort Course.

It was given the name Spruce Run in 1992 as a reflection of the numerous spruce and fir trees that line its fairways and greens. Spruce Run was modified to a par-70 course during the development of The Wolverine.

More forgiving than The Bear, Spruce Run is fun to play and while retaining some of the challenging elements for which it was renowned as host to the Michigan Open. The course winds among rolling hills that surround the Hotel and overlook Grand Traverse Bay.

The tees, greens, and fairways were seeded with bentgrass, and water comes into play on 13 holes. The Michigan Open was played on Spruce Run from 1981 through 1984. Yardage, rating, and slope were updated in 2017.

Spruce Run is closed for the season.
