Grand Traverse Resort and Spa – Northern Michigan

Someone asked us the other day what Grand Traverse Resort in Northern Michigan was like. They also asked what one word would describe our time with the great people at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

We had to stop and think. Was that one word “great” or in keeping with the resort’s name “Grand”? Maybe it is “fabulous” or “stupendous”, “incredible”, “stunning” or “unbelievable”?

We finally had to write all these down on a piece of paper , hand it to the individual and say the one word to describe Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is …”All”! Yes all of these describe our experiences at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

The golf is superb with 3 world class 18 hole championship courses namely , The Bear by Jack Nicklaus, The Wolverine by Gary Player and Spruce Run by William Newcomb. All are playable by players of all abilities from beginners to tour players. Make sure you ask at the single clubhouse for the incredible replay and same day play options.

In addition to the sensational 18 hole layouts, Grand Traverse offers a world class practice facility and the Golf Academy for lessons by seasoned professional instructors.

The greens on The Loop are incredibly fast and although the course was originally built as a walking only course, power carts are now the order of the day for most folks.

Long summer days present you with relaxing twilight golf to be completed by an outstanding meal and beverage on the patio at the clubhouse Grille overlooking the 18th hole of The Bear. The service by the experienced hospitality staff is outstanding so make sure you recognize it with some generosity.

Bring a group and be prepared to be amazed at the outstanding amenities. The rooms and accommodations are world class along with wonderful dining opportunities to meet everyone’s budget and taste buds.
