The course is very poorly managed and you'll rarely see a happy member. The food is typical cheap stuff served by very union-esqe Boyne employees, and the clubhouse is clearly cheaply built and looks to be in disrepair. Too, it's very overpriced. To many, this is a bucket-list golf course and I can understand. The views on the course are... More

I captured another Wedding at the Golf Club and it was a wonderful Venue. I would recommend this venue for their wonderful views, perfect service, and food. The couple loved every bit of it and the night was perfect. Very elegant and classy.

Excellent links and quarry layouts are a must play if in the area. The preserve layout is classic michigan. GPS on carts make the play enjoyable.

Fantastic, challenging course. Clubhouse and staff were fantastic and reasonably priced whilst there. My only criticism would be the Marshall making up rubbish that we were a hole and half behind when we clearly weren't and then threatening us that we might have to skip a hole. I guess when the members must be paying $25000 joining fee, you don't... More

The golf course and club house are amazing. Very scenic and tough holes. Highly recommended. Would go back any time I can.

I knew I was in for a special round of golf but I underestimated the beauty of this course. Lake Michigan is visible from a majority of the holes and the views from the holes on the Links course are breath taking. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a round of golf here!

Played here with 3 friends. There was a threesome in front of us. It was cold and very windy. It was a long afternoon. We waited on every hole to tee off. On most we chatted with threesome in front of us who were waiting to tee off. Then we sat till they were clear. Was told a group of... More

It is generally felt that the... More

I can't say enough about Bay Harbor Golf Club. They have 3 nines (Preserves, Links, Quarry), so make a day and play 36 holes, eat lunch on their patio (excellent food) and enjoy the views. The course is in great condition and the houses on the house are worth taking a look at, with gorgeous landscaping.

Beautiful. Course but staff woefully under trained. Act like they are god's gift to golf with very little manners. I would not golf or stay here again.
