This resort, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," features three outstanding eighteen hole courses. The Wolverine Course is the newest design and features two distinct nines. The front is more open and flat, while the back nine is more similar to the Bear Course in design. The Bear Course is the most difficult of the three courses because it features narrow, tree-lined fairways that are terraced. The greens are undulating, but putt true. "Golf Digest" chose this course 50th among the "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1992, and as the 8th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996. In addition, "Golf Digest" rated this course 93rd under the 1996 category of the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." The same publication named it the 20th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and 21st in 1997-98. The Spruce Run Course has 1,100 spruce trees that can affect your shots. The fairways are open on the front nine and tight on the back nine. The greens are fast and undulating. The terrain on all of the courses is rolling and heavily bunkered. Water hazards (streams, creeks, and marshes) come into play on all three courses. There are two practice facilities at this resort. The Michigan Open has been played here for many years.
