Where2Golf says: 

Boyne Highlands Resort (Donald Ross Memorial course): Located a few miles north of Harbor Springs in Northern Michigan, Boyne Highlands is home to no less than four championship golf courses: the highly rated Heather course, the Arthur Hills, the Donald Ross Memorial course and the Moor layout. With the Robert Trent Jones Jr designed Heather course as the standard bearer, Boyne Highlands is recognised as one of Michigan's best quality golf venues.

The four courses provide a wonderful test for your all-round game with many excellent holes to enjoy. The Donald Ross Memorial is a composite of classic golf holes designed by Donald Ross in the early part of the century and re-created at Boyne. Some of the architect's most renowned golf courses are included, not least Oakland Hills, Seminole, Pinehurst No.2, Inverness and Oak Hill.

Stay & Play: nearby accommodation (2.5 mi) is available in the Boyne Highlands Resort centre (see Where2Stay section below).
