ACME, Mich. – A visitor to Grand Traverse Resort and Spa has options, night or day, fall, winter, spring and summer.


A trip built around the Resort’s incredible golf or perhaps meetings in the outstanding conference facilities does not mean everything comes to a halt when the sun goes down. Nightlife is close at hand. Fabulous Turtle Creek Casino is five minutes away by convenient shuttle bus. Leelanau Sands Casino, Turtle Creek’s sister casino, is only 25 miles and this time of year a short, stunning color tour away.


Night or day, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa has your fun and vacation experience covered.


"If your visit is built around golf, then gaming at the casino is a great choice when the sun goes down,” Steve Timmer, the director of marketing for the Resort, said. “If your visit is built around gaming, then golf is a great choice for when the sun comes up.”


“Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is designed for convenience, a great experience and choices for entertainment and activity. With the casino so close, with Traverse City so close, with all we offer on the Resort property from championship golf to restaurants, we can make your visit work at whatever hours you choose.”


Think beyond the meetings of the day to the casino, which rings in and lights up the fun with a relaxed yet exciting atmosphere, great food, music and gaming thrills to help you relax and enjoy being away from home. Think beyond the golf course, or simply win on the championship courses, and win at gaming in modern made-for-fun casinos.


The excitement doesn’t have to end at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa just because the clock is moving. Michigan’s finest and most complete resort experience is customized for each visitor’s personal choices depending how they wish to spend their time.


“We have world-class golf, the great spa experience, swimming, tennis, Lake Michigan and the beach club, tremendous dining options, the Turtle Creek Casino is just five minutes away on our shuttles and wine tours and Traverse City are only minutes away as well,” Mr. Timmer said. “You can call it a day, or go make it a night.”


Literally in sight of Grand Traverse Resort's 16-story Tower, Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel is a convenient shuttle ride to Vegas-style action. Also owned and operated by the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, Turtle Creek is one of the Midwest's foremost casinos featuring over 1,200 of the latest slot machines, 40 table games, an award-winning poker room and a private high limit area unrivaled in Michigan


Turtle Creek is open 24/7 with weekly tournaments and promotions on the 54,000-square-foot gaming floor, three restaurants, six bars and a high-voltage nightclub open on weekends.


Plan a trip now. The resort offers 575 wonderfully designed guests rooms and condominiums. The 7,000 square-foot Spa Grand TRaverse has to be visited to be fully appreciated.
