An iconic ski and golf resort in northern Michigan, Shanty Creek Resorts is a three-resort experiences in one. Its three villages of SCR (Summit, Cedar River and Schuss) span 4,500 acres across hardwood forests, rolling meadows and atop mountain...more
I stayed four nights at Shanty Creek Resorts staying in the summit Village area in a one-bedroom Ridge walk condominium.
The condo was rather dated in decor but otherwise clean and mostly functional. The ice maker in the freezer did not work and there were...More
We vacationed here for a week in one of the condos. They were beautiful and had a wonderful view of the golf courses. The Lakeview Hotel was available to us as well and we as a family had a great time.
We rented a condo at Shanty Creek's Schuss Village. The condo had some great amenities and was comfortable, but the resort itself is lacking. It seemed at one time it was a great place with tennis courts, basketball courts, an indoor pool and outdoor pool,...More
My Husband and I celebrated our 8yr Anniversary here and We really enjoyed the friendliness of everyone. This was our first time visiting this resort and we really enjoyed ourselves. All the Staff we're very courteous, kind and helpful! We would definitely be visiting again....More
Our room seemed clean and our view was nice but the hotel was very outdated. The bathroom door was warped and falling apart, and it appeared someone had forced the room door open at some point as chunks were out of the wood. There was...More
Played the Legend GC @Shanty Creek Resort on a beautiful summer morning and enjoyed it tremendously. We got around the hilly and wooded tract as a threesome in under 4 hours. This course has a wide variety of golf holes from narrow and woody to...More
We chose Shanty Creek for our annual outing in 2018. The resort property is huge so make sure you get a printed map before you go so you know where you are staying and where you are golfing. It can be a little ride from...More
I'm a local so I rented a room to give my kids and their kids more room at my house
My wife haven't stayed at Shanty in over 10 yrs but not much has changed
We stayed at the Summit and it was nosy and...More
The noise level is unacceptable. Every room has a deck which is 3 inches from the adjacent deck - with a half wall separating them. You hear everything - including the woman 2 decks down talking to her friend about the upcoming colonoscopy. Or the...More
The resort is tucked away in the wooded glory outside Traverse City. It is well maintained and offers all sorts of fun activities (volleyball, shuffleboard, pools) for guests of any age. We stayed in the Lakeview Hotel which was exceptionally spacious and clean. The restaurant...More

Hello, Scott. Thanks for your question. Shanty Creek Resorts has four courses including two of Michigan's Top 20 ranked courses--Arnold Palmer's The Legend and Tom Weiskopf's Cedar River GC. The other two courses are quite worthy too. Schuss Mtn GC plays like two distinct 9-hole courses where the front weaves through pine forests and the back features a lot of elevation changes and doglegs. The Summit course, while not as long as the other three, forces players to dial in their short/approach game and requires deft putting skill on its greens.
With Palmer and Weiskopf, SCRs golf reputation is solid. In 2012 Conde Nast Traveler named SCR among the Top Golf Resorts in the World, and tops in Michigan. We think it's pretty special, and hope you will too.

What helps make any of the courses, on or off-site more memorable is where you stay. Check accommodations that fit: hotel, condo, townhome or single family home. i love a TH looking onto the green at Cedar River.
