Michigan golf review

Lochenheath Golf Club - Michigan golf course

 LochenHeath Golf Club sits on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay is just outside of Traverse City. The combination of the views of the Bay, dramatic elevations changes up to 85 feet and the Steve Smyers design create dramatic vistas and a world class experience. As LochenHeath is transitioning to a Private Club they are inviting outside play to experience how special LochenHeath is, tee times 231-938-9800. LochenHeath has added the availability of caddies and forecaddies, which would need to be reserved in advance. If you are able to book a round here it will be a memorable experience. The impressive community features generous luxury home sites situated throughout a brilliant championship golf course.

There are 65 sand bunkers scattered about the course - many of them sprawling, and water hazards come into play on 6 holes, if you include the Grand Traverse Bay along the right side on the par 4 fifth. The fairways are very rolling, with some tree lined and others fairly quite open. The green complexes are large, with bunkers, mounding and swales as frequent features. The putting surfaces range from small to medium in size, with varying undulations. Numerous greens are raised with steep drop offs and collection areas on one or two sides, and expansive fringe areas. Miss the green and challenging recovery opportunities await.

Lochenheath is an incredibly well conditioned course, and with spectacular vistas and great variety in hole design - this layout is one that visitors to NW Michigan will not want to miss. It is a challenging layout, but one that will make you anxious to play again! We highly recommend a round here. The property is situated along Hwy 31 just east of the Grand Traverse Resort complex. The spectacular entrance way will give you a clue as what to expect from this "must experience" golf course.
