Andrew Brown from the

Toledo Golf Show


“Treetops is one of the first Michigan golf

resorts to support our show and is always a

favorite of the attendees. Our golfing group

always looks forward to a fantastic week

of golf, when we make our pilgrimage ‘Up

North’ for our buddies golf trip each year.”

Treetops always has a noticeable presence

at the show and offers discounts for booking

golf trips and family getaways during the

Toledo Golf Show.

Treetops has a rich history that began when

Harry Melling, who owned a successful

automotive parts manufacturing business in

Jackson, Michigan, purchased the property

in 1983. He loved northern Michigan and

was looking for a new challenge, when he

purchased a dilapidated ski hill with just a

couple of T-Bars located on 179 acres near


Harry found out it was a challenge for

sure. It didn’t take long for him to realize,

if he wanted to keep his dream alive, he

needed to add summer activities to create

additional income for the down months.

Golf crazy Chrysler, GM and Ford auto

workers from Detroit and lower Michigan

were looking for summer getaways and

Northern Michigan had a lot to offer.

Because other nearby resort owners wanted

to extend their season and fill empty rooms

during the beautiful Michigan summer

months, golf courses sprang up in Traverse

City, Boyne Mountain and Shanty Creek.

Melling immediately realized the potential

income a golf course could provide and

contracted Robert Trent Jones Sr. to build

the first course at Treetops, The Masterpiece.
