Crooked Tree Review - All photos in this review are of Crooked Tree Golf Club in Petoskey, located practically across the street from Bay Harbor. This course is designed beautifully along a very hilly terrain with significant elevation changes from tee to green. To set the tone, the initial four holes all play from elevated tees, with the par four third and fourth demanding carries over marsh areas to sloping fairways. There is frequently ample landing room off the tee, inviting players of all skills levels to enjoy a round here.

The green complexes vary in size and shape but are generally sloping or undulating, with some double tiered putting surfaces along the way. The par three 2nd is one such complex and the green on number six is also memorable, as a rock retaining is situated past a creek and in front of the putting surface. There are some spectacular views, including that on the tee of the par three 8th, which has the shimmering blue of Lake Michigan as its backdrop (photo below).

There are five sets of tee boxes that play to distances and slopes that measure 6705 yards/140 slope, 6399 yards/132 slope, 6026 yards/125 slope, 5475 s with a yards/133 slope for women and 4586 yards with a 121 slope for ladies hitting from the forward tee areas. As the slopes indicate, this is a challenging experience from the two back tees (and for ladies using the green tees), but is very playable from the orange and silver tees.

The yardage marking system includes 150 yard stakes in the middle of the fairways plus yardages posted on cart paths and the fairways of all par fours and fives at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Small markers on the flagsticks indicate the day's front, middle or back hole locations.
