Where2Golf says: 

Boyne Highlands Resort (Heather 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. As Boyne's very first golf course, The Heather has stood the test of time as an elite, best of the best, championship course. Playing your shots along wide tree-lined fairways, while manoeuvring your way around sculpted bunkers and daunting water hazards, the Heather boasts a wonderful combination of challenging shots and beautiful scenery.

Stay & Play: on-site accommodation is available in the Boyne Highlands resort (see Where2Stay section below).
