The Wolverine

Gary Player’s first signature course in the state of Michigan is designed to take full advantage of the Resorts richly diverse environment. The designs flexibility, versatility, and playability with four sets of tees allows the course to be set up to accommodate golfers of all abilities.

The course is challenging for a low handicap, yet playable and enjoyable for high handicappers and is capable of being set up to be a true test for professional tournaments.

Each nine is distinctive. The front nine is constructed on lowland terrain with water and wetlands, and existing wetlands were enhanced to interweave with several holes on the front. The back nine is constructed on highland terrain with hardwoods, rolling hills, and views of East Grand Traverse Bay.

Fairways and greens were seeded with Providence Bentgrass, tees were seeded with Penncross Bentgrass, and the rough was seeded with bluegrass and fescue. The greens are undulating while water comes into play on 13 holes. The course record is 63, shot during the first round of the 2008 Michigan Open by Bryan Stuard of Jackson, Michigan.
