Exceptional golf courses complemented by the natural, Northwoods beauty of Michigan's Lower Peninsula make Grand Traverse Resort and Spa a premier destination for golfers seeking a first-class experience. 

Thanks to three great designers, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa boasts a colorful palette of courses, each offering varying levels of challenge. Those courses include The Bear, The Wolverine, and Spruce Run.

For 28 years, the Resort was the host site for the Michigan Open, one of the most prestigious state golf championships in the nation. Through the years, publications like Golf Digest, Conde Nast Traveler, Golf Magazine, Travel & Leisure Golf, and Links Magazine have recognized Grand Traverse us as one of the Midwest's finest golf experiences.

For golfers looking to play together, we also offer Golf Leagues. Call the Golf Academy at 231-534-6550 for more details. For groups contact Kris Ruckle or Joann Hanafi.
