4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Boyne Highlands Resort (Arthur Hills 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 Arthur Hills course is a spectacle of design and beauty, a demanding course that requires patience and respect. The layout is home to many traps and hazards, with relatively generous fairways leading to challenging green complexes ....... plenty of risks to take on and rewards to be had.

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