Belvedere Golf Club: Located just outside Charlevoix, Michigan, this historic club is home to one of the classic designs of Scottish-born golf architect Willie Watson. Similar in style to many of the famous inland courses of the British Isles, Belvedere welcomes outside guest play during the season.

Famed architect Willie Watson, is perhaps best known for his major championship designs, which include Olympia Fields in Chicago, Interlachen in Minneapolis, The Olympic Club in San Francisco and notable others. With five teams of horses and 150 men, the ebullient Scotsman turned a farm is the small Lake Michigan village of Charlevoix into one of the state's most iconic and enjoyable courses.

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
