The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

The Treetops Resort in Gaylord is one of Michigan's best known golf, ski and spa resorts. It is home to five golf courses, which include Tom Fazio's Premier course, Robert Trent Jones Sr's Masterpiece layout, and three Rick Smith designs: the Signature, Tradition and 9-hole Threetops.

Like the Masterpiece and Signature layouts, the Premier is a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Michigan. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. The course makes the most of the rolling terrain, striking a balance between challenge and forgiveness. It is the only course in Michigan designed by renowned architect, Tom Fazio.

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

Did you know?

The Tom Fazio designed Premier Course at Treetops Resort, is the only course in Michigan designed by famed architect Tom Fazio. | Treetops Resort can apparently thank golf architect Robert Trent Jones Sr for its name. While designing the resort's first golf course in the early 1980s, he looked out across the surrounding hills and commented that the impressive and very natural view was one dominated by "treetops."

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
