An Unlikely Golf Destination

When you hear the phrase golf destination, what's the first state that comes to mind? Show of virtual hands, who said Michigan?

Perhaps the most unexpected of all golf getaway states, Michigan is actually home to the second highest number of courses in the United States. In fact, Michigan has more golf courses than both California and Texas.

Go figure, right?

Our top 2 courses on this list are particularly noteworthy. The #1 course, as you'll find out later, is ranked among the very best in the country, while the #2 course has the dubious distinction of being the first Top 10 in any state to close before the rankings published.

To build our list of the best golf courses in Michigan, we turned to TheGrint and to real golfers just like you.


About Our Rankings

To generate our rankings, we used data from TheGrint, a golf handicap and stat tracking service that also allows golfers to rate the courses they play. Here are the pertinent details:

  • Ranking derived from over 200,000 golf course reviews
  • Only reviews from the last 365 days are considered
  • A course must have a minimum of 30 reviews is required in order to qualify for ranking

Nearly every aspect of a golf course review is subjective and there's always going to be a difference of opinion, so healthy (and hopefully polite) debate is to be expected.
