Fox Run in Grayling is a situated in an ideal location for golfers traveling up north in Michigan - as the opening round, or on the way back down south at the end of a trip. The
property is conveniently located just a few minutes off I-75 at the Grayling /Four Mile Road exit. Golfers will encounter a course that was rated 4 stars by golf digest places to play in
one of their latest editions.
The property features a well stocked pro shop with restaurant and bar, and golf facilities that include a short game practice area with 2 putting greens, plus a targeted grass
driving range. The terrain on this classic layout is mildly rolling and tree lined with a mix of open and tightly contoured holes. Land on the well conditioned greens in regulation, and
good scores can be had, as these putting surfaces are only mildly sloped and roll quite true. Natural marsh areas and tall heather grass present challenges that golfers will have
There are 3 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 6371 yards/131 slope from the blues, 5904 yards with a 123 slope from the whites, and 4829 with a 118

This par 72 course features bluegrass fairways and bent grass greens, with 33 soft sand bunkers in play near the landing zones off the tee or situated greenside, There is one
pond in play (a forced carry on the par three 17th) but several holes also have marsh areas that have to be negotiated. A few holes begin from elevated tees.
Yardage markers are posted on 100, 150 and 200 yards on all par foruse and fives, and small flags on the flagsticks indicate the days front, middle or back hole locations. The
folks in the pro shop make visitors feel like family - friendly and with exceptional service. We highly recommend a round here!
