Grand Traverse Resort and Spa - Michigan Golf Resort

The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Acme just east of downtown Traverse City is Michigan's most luxurious golf resort, and in 2007 - after 3 years and 14 million dollars in renovations, the property is excited to be on display. The centerpiece for golfers consists of three 4 star rated (Golf Digest) championship courses and extensive practice facilities, but guests can also enjoy a full array of top notch amenities and service.

With a variety of smartly appointed guest rooms flanked by Lake Michigan on one side and a landscape of orchards, woodlands and vineyards on the other, this resort provides an environment that can be equally appreciated by golfers, corporate groups, couples and families. Awards include: Top 20 mainland resorts and top 50 travel destinations and services worldwide by Conde Nast Traveler, Circle's Family Resort of the Year Award, Successful Meeting's Pinnacle Award, Corporate & Incentive Travel's Award of Excellence, and Golf Magazine's Silver Medal Resort award.

GOLF AT GRAND TRAVERSE RESORT & SPA

Grand Traverse Resort and Spa - Michigan Golf Resort

The golf at Grand Traverse Resort can only be described as incredible! Guests have a short walk (or shuttle) to the pro clubhouse, where they check in for their experience on one of three beautifully designed and maintained courses. The Jim McLean Golf School is on property, and practice facilities are comprehensive. The pro shop is well stocked with golf equipment, logo attire and accessories, and the adjacent grill and lounge serves up a nice variety of fare and beverages. A spacious outdoor patio with great views of the first and 18th holes of the Bear (and adjacent to the practice facilities) is a perfect meeting spot.

 The Wolverine (Gary Player) and Spruce Run (William Newcomb) are excellent layouts that provide a nice challenge from the back tees, yet are player friendly for novices and mid to high handicappers that choose the correct tees.

The Bear (Jack Nicklaus Signature design) is just that...a bear of a course. This extraordinary layout (annually recognized as one of the greatest courses in the country) is both beautiful and challenging, with a top slope rating of 148 from the tips and 140 from the white tee boxes! Bring your best - and enjoy the test!
