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.

Some of the architect's most renowned golf courses are included, not least Oakland Hills, Seminole, Pinehurst No.2, Inverness and Oak Hill.
