The Doherty Hotel, centrally located in Downtown Clare, offers 75 years of hospitality. Currently owned and managed by the fourth generation of Dohertys, the hotel combines a European flair with American amenities. Wonderful service in a location in the heart of Michigan makes the Doherty an ideal meeting place, and a great spot for golfers. Clare is located at the crossroads of US 27 and US 10, just 2 1/2 hours from both Detroit and Mackinaw City. Guests and convention attendees will appreciate the well-lit parking, and convenience to downtown Clare.


The Doherty is an ideal spot for a one or two night stay on the way up or back from the North - and as one of the premier hotels in Central Michigan is a great host for a Mid-Michigan golf vacation. Dozens of high quality layouts are within an hour's drive of the Doherty, and packages can be arranged with many. You can stay here for a week and play a different course each day - with a number of the designs available similar in nature to Northern Michigan layouts.

Pleasant Country Club, The Pines, Riverwood, Snowsnake, St. Ives and Tullymore, The Tamaracks and Winding Brook.
