When most golfers hear the

wordsGaylord,Michigan, they

think of Treetops Resort with

the Robert Trent Jones Sr, Tom

Fazio and Rick Smith designed

championship courses, plus

the ultra-enjoyable Threetops

par-3. It is truly one of the

best stay & play options for

golfers looking for great golf

in northern Michigan.

But wait, the Gaylord Golf

Mecca has other options

available for golfers. As you

drive north on I-75, one exit

ramp before Gaylord, sits The Loon Resort along beautiful

Otsego Lake.

The Loon Resort may offer the

best value of all of the Gaylord

Golf Mecca properties. It has

three golf courses, providing

options for every golfer. The

Lakes, the Ridge and The Loon

courses feature fairways that

traverse the sand hills bordered

by tall northern pines and the

views available at each course

are well worth the cost.

The Lakes

course is always

in superb condition. It was

built in 1988 and designed

by famed Michigan golf

architect, Jerry Matthews. The

front nine meanders through

the woodlands, while the

back nine encircles Lake

Michaywe’. The two par

threes on the back nine are

particularly impressive.

Mike Husby designed



, originally known as

Marsh Ridge, which opened

to the public in 1992. Marsh

Ridge had fallen into disarray

until the owners of the Loon

bought theproperty, shortened

the name, and improved

conditions considerably.

The Ridge is shorter in length,

than the Loon or Lakes

courses, but it is cut through

the gorgeous hardwoods of

the area with great vistas and

significant elevation changes.
