For the perfect golf getaway, come to the Petoskey Area of northern Michigan. Golf Magazine has called our area #2 in the country for concentrated golf quality. Whether you choose worldclass courses or more economical layouts, you’ll remember the beauty of where you played long after forgetting your score.

The topography here was sculpted by the glaciers and defined by rolling hills up to 600 feet in elevation. Most area courses take full advantage with breathtaking terrain changes. Lake Michigan and numerous inland lakes add to the beauty of the courses. And virtually all the golf holes are separated from each other — no bowling alley back and forth golf!

When you consider the spectacular landscape and the fact that architects such as Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arthur Hills have designed courses here, it’s no surprise that the Petoskey Area is home to so many prestigious tournaments.

While the Petoskey Area has long been a golf destination, fantastic golf is just the start of all there is to do. With a wealth of recreational activities within a short distance, this is a family destination where the non-golfers don’t feel stranded.

Our lakeside communities (Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Boyne City and Bay Harbor) are full of unique shops and restaurants. You can hike or bike along the lake or through hardwood forests, cool off in Michigan’s largest indoor waterpark, and experience the excitement of the spectacular casino.
