GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

ARCADIA BLUFFS - THE BLUFFS COURSE

The Bluffs Course offers unparalleled world-class golf on a links style layout. Undulating and open, The Bluffs Course is revered for its wind-swept native grasses, sod-walled bunkers, wide fairways, spacious greens, and stunning views of Lake Michigan. It is renowned for the challenges each of its unspoiled, artfully crafted holes presents the mind and body.

The course has more than 3,000 feet of shoreline and drops more than 200 feet from its highest point down to the cliffs, which are themselves 150 feet above Lake Michigan. It is as dramatic a setting for golf as you can imagine with not a weak hole on the course.

The Bluffs Course is open April through November each year. The design of The Bluffs offering panoramic views of Lake Michigan throughout the entire round, as well as impeccable playing conditions.

ARCADIA BLUFFS - THE SOUTH COURSE

The South Course at Arcadia Bluffs is a tribute to a bygone era in golf course design that few golfers today have ever experienced.

The South Course was assembled just one mile south of the existing Arcadia Bluffs course that has enough topographic relief to allow for varying lies, contains sandy soils for firm and fast conditioning, is square in configuration to allow for a well-mixed variety of hole directions, and is walkable.  Golfers will notice the distinct lack of trees on the course, making the ever present wind a consideration and affording long range views across the property.

Prominent features of the South Course include; Rectangular tees with 90-degree corners, Large greens averaging over 9,400 square feet - and quite often squared off in their shape in one or more of their corners and separated into different sections using swales, ridges, slopes and isolated bumps, bold bunkering style defined by strong grass faces and ribbons of flat sand, wide-fairways and approaches offering optional lines of play. It are these aspects of an enduring classic design that both confounds and excites golfers, leaving them with an elevated anticipation to return.

FOREST DUNES

Nestled on 500 acres of heavily wooded land within the Huron National Forest, Forest Dunes has become one of the country's most peaceful and exciting golf experiences.

In this pristine setting, British Open Champion Tom Weiskopf designed a parkland-style classic with modern enhancements. Forest Dunes replicates classic style and emulates a risk/reward involvement on most every hole," Weiskopf said. "I consider this golf course to be in the top three which I have ever been involved in the United States."

Forest Dunes features a number of intriguing challenges including wide open meadows, hardwoods, century-old red and jack pines, rugged native dunes, scruffy sand areas and water features. The front nine at Forest Dunes highlights parkland-style holes meandering through corridors of red and jack pines, with elaborate bunkering and sandy waste areas on the sidelines.

The back nine brings to mind Pine Valley with exposed rugged native sand areas and scruffy underbrush crossing and bordering fairways and greens. The finishing holes will thrill and leave golfers with vast memories — beginning with the par-three 16th, which measures over 200 yards and requires a challenging carry over a rugged dune area.

FOREST DUNES - THE LOOP (RED & BLACK)

Welcome to the worlds first reversible golf course. Tom Doak's long-time vision set to life, The Loop has 18 greens but 36 distinct holes, on rotating days you'll play on the same turf but you'll be shooting at the same green you played the day before but from very different angles. You'll swear you are playing a totally different course.

The Red is a more traditional design, in the sense that the starting holes give you a bit of time to loosen up. There are a couple of hard holes going out, but the challenge really turns up a notch from the 8th through 11th holes, and the short par-4 12th can produce a six as easily as a 4, for those who get too greedy. The last four holes are a difficult finish.

The Black Course is a less traditional setup, with a tough start and an easier finish. Par for the front side is only 34, with three short holes at the 2nd, 5th and 8th, and just one par-5. The stretch of holes from the 4th to the 8th is your best opportunity to make some birdies; starting with the 9th, you’ll face a bunch of difficult holes all the way around to the 16th, until a short par-5 and a relatively short par-4 close out the round.
