This is a great course. Scenic views of Lake Michigan. Beautiful course, nice pro shop and food. People were really nice even gave me a free cup of coffee. Can't beat that! Would definitely go back. Love the one hole where you stand about 3 stories up above the green - Par!!!

This course has stunning views from every tee box. We love this course. One of the tee boxes is the highest point in Emmett County and you can see Petoskey, the harbor and Lake Michigan. It's beautiful.

This is the first course we play when Up North. It is Tough, Long, well cared for, fun and humbling. I love it but it hates me. Not cheap (we will pay $79 each tomorrow on a Monday) but I don't ever feel ripped off..... Just beaten up by a GREAT golf course with astounding views.

The course was in great shape. For $60, I felt it was a great value. Friendly staff, beautiful views. As it's on the hills above the bay, there are many uphill and downhill holes. Make sure to set the parking break on the cart!

Played here with my 11 year old son, who is a little better than a beginner. The course was what you'd expect for an "Up North" course, very hilly, tough greens, great views. Tough enough for me, but, I was able to allow my son to play it, too by teeing him off from the fairway, The real treat was... More

It is a little bit of a drive and it is not on the water. However the view overlooks all of Little Traverse Bay. The food is simple- good sandwiches, well made drinks and lots of tables outside. It is windy so high up but we enjoyed it.

Great views of Little Traverse Bay while golfing. The restaurant is good and friendly staff. I must for me during the golf season. Accommodates leagues and individual golfers

Beautiful course off the beaten track. I played 7 courses while up in northern Michigan a week ago on my annual late September golf trip to this area playing courses like the Wolverine and Bear at Grand Traverse, Forest Dunes in Roscommon, Arcadia Bluffs and several others and to me, Little Traverse Bay was on par with Shanty Creek's Cedar...
