The only golf course in Michigan designed by Tom Fazio, the Premier course is a special treat for Michigan golfers. With rolling fairways and just one water hazard, the Premier course is player friendly. On the other hand, with steep slopes and plenty of dogleg turns, the Premier still challenges even the most seasoned players.
Named one of the best golf courses in the Midwest by Golf Magazine. With all of the sloping mounds and narrow fairways, the Rick Smith-designed Signature course will keep your whole group on their toes.
Opened in 1987, Golf Digest named it the second-best new course in the country. Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed this course with deep ravines, plentiful sand traps, tough pin placement, numerous water hazards, and constant elevation changes. The Masterpiece is widely considered the most challenging course at Treetops.
Rick Smith’s third resort course design is the most player-friendly course at Treetops. The Tradition course has less elevation change, wider fairways, and a more natural landscape than the other courses on the property.
Treetops’ nine-hole executive course is widely considered the top par-3 course in the country. Photo-worthy vistas surround the course’s brief but often steep fairways. Perfect for golfers looking for a warm-up round or a quick game before heading home.
