If you ask me, this is a course that can't be missed! It's an old school course with tees and greens very close together, made for walking, and shaped by horses, not bulldozers! The greens, when cut tight, are small but diabolical! Shotmaking is critical and there are lots of options to score well with well-struck shots. This is a... More

If you have a chance I recommend it highly. This carefully manicured tree lined course is laid out in the old style that allows you to walk with short distances between greens and tee boxes. Each hole is will laid out and interesting and the green roll true.

A great old golf course. They have carts but it is also a very walkable course. It looks easy, but watch out! If the wind is up, it plays very differently. Some wonderful approach shots and greens. I play there A LOT during the spring/summer/fall.

This William Watson design opened in 1927 and is one of the best examples of classic golf architecture in the United States. The staff treats visitors no differently from the members -- something all great golf clubs have in common -- and the view from the back porch of the clubhouse is perfect for a single malt after your round....

For serious golfers who know what it is like to play on a Trent Jones course, there is nothing to be missed by an early tee time on the Belvedere Golf course. The layout makes ample use of what nature has to offer, and indeed you'll find nature plenty throughout the course. One of the finest golf courses in all... More

Great old course in very good condition. Challenging without being stupid. Fun to play. Good pace. Can walk. A little pricey considering bounce courses can be cheaper but well worth a stop

The course is excellent. However you are warned that the clubhouse is off limits unless you are a member, which was too bad. There are outhouses at most holes.

If your golf experience demands beverage carts, GPS systems, 5 hour rounds & golfers with cell phones and I-pods on every tee, skip Belvedere. For the rest of you who enjoy the game of golf, its history and traditions - a stop at Belvedere Golf Club is a Northern Michigan must play.
