Treetops continues to be my all time favorite place to golf and we golf all over the U.S. The courses are just fantastic. There are five courses. We always golf 27 holes a day - one of the 18 hole courses and then Threetops afterwards. My favorite courses are Signature and Premier. What outstanding views and rolling terrain and no... More

Stayed at the main lodge that was a delight. Greens leave a bit to be desired and should be designed to attract more golfers instead they leave you with frustration and 3 putts. Tee to Green very scenic and fair and able to hit in regulation, but once on the green look out!

So much fun - they have an 18 hole foofgolf course on the first 9 holes of the Tradition. My son, sister and I have done it twice and will go again soon. So much fun - recommend brining your own soccer ball - the ones they rent are all the same kind so you can mix them up also... More

We played the Masterpiece course for the second year on an annual golf trip to the area. The course is terrific and the scenery is absolutely awesome. But, be prepared to have tough walks between your golf cart and the green. On most holes, you will be going severely up hill either to or from the golf cart. But it... More

I gave it average because the highs and the lows reached its average score. I'll summarize it. Highs: - Excellent friendly staff, everyone was nice and greeted you at every turn. Service was exceptional all over the resort. - Being mainly a golf resort, the course was well-maintained and despite being a par three course it was still very enjoyable.... More

Enjoyed the Resort for Golf at Masterpiece. The staff was great, the accommodations were excellent, and the course was well maintained and beautiful. Had a slow foursome in front of us which the ranger corrected on the front nine but no ranger appeared during the back nine so the pace was too slow on the back nine. What did we... More

Have played all the courses here and stayed overnight a few times. Amazing courses...well groomed, variety of skill levels...don't skip playing threetops...hands down the best par three course I've ever played...I enjoy it as much as the 18 hole courses.

Eight of us played 90 holes of golf over 3 days on all 4 courses and had a great time. This was our 3rd time at Treetops, staying in the chalets. All courses were in great shape. Courses played much firmer than in years' past. Not sure if it hadn't rained much the last few weeks, or if it's the... More

Just finished a great golf outing here. The courses were a bit rough, but it is early and has been a tough winter., They still remain the best collection of great golf in Michigan or anywhere. The hotel is also in a bit of need for updating, but remains comfortable. Food was good for a large outing like this of... More

Normally, this is overpriced, but if you can find a deal of some sort, it is great golf. The Jones course is beautiful, but too hard for my liking. Driver, 3 iron to par 4's gets old quickly. Especially with difficult greens and fairways that don't hold shots easily. The Fazio course is the BEST course on the planet. Everything... More
