Whitefish Lake Golf Club (North course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1936

Whitefish Lake Golf Club is home to two 18-hole golf courses: the generally higher-rated North course, and the also John Steidel designed South course.

The North course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout, which sits above Whitefish Lake providing open views of the lake and of Big Mountain. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
