Winter Golf


Traverse City’s golf courses may be closed, but that does not mean our golf game stops!  Grand Traverse Resort and Spa offers a variety of golf activities for guests, members, and the public during the winter season. The Golf Academy and Clubhouse will both be open for the operation of winter golf leagues, lessons, practice sessions, use of the TrackMan simulators, and more.


The Clubhouse hosts our pro shop, offers food and beverages, and features two Trackman® simulators for members, guests, and the public.

The TrackMan Simulator is the leading golf launch monitor, accurately displaying the trajectory and landing position of each shot you take.
