Where2Golf says: 

Shanty Creek Resorts (Cedar River Golf Club): Located between Traverse City, Petoskey and Gaylord in Northern Michigan, Shanty Creek Resorts offer four golf courses, each one different in its own way. Here you will find Arnold Palmer's The Legend, Tom Weiskopf's Cedar River, the challenging Schuss Mountain course, and the original Summit Golf Club.

Cedar River is a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Michigan. This tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

At this Stay & Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee.

Did you know?

Shanty Creek Resorts, including the Schuss Mountain and Summit Mountain ski, recreational and lodging areas, has its origins in resorts founded by Roy Deskin and Daniel Iannotti. Roy Deskin, the son of a coal miner, worked his way through Detroit’s steel factories to become a magnate in the industry. After a successful career, he retired "Up North" in 1944 and purchased a home on Torch Lake. The home developed into a private social club, then the Summit Mountain ski area was added, and the Lodge at Shanty Creek. The Lodge took its name from an old trapper's shanty home, and has since been renovated and re-named the Lakeview Hotel. The original "Deskin Golf Course" is today's Summit course. Separately, Daniel Iannotti, a Chicago stockbroker, developed a quaint, Bavarian ski hamlet known as the "Kingdom of Schuss." The first nine of the Schuss Mountain Golf Course opened in 1972. In 1985, Club Corporation of America bought and merged the Summit and Schuss resorts. Cedar River, the third village of Shanty Resorts, was added in the late 1990s.
