I played at Bay Harbor in early August and really enjoyed the experience. I have never been to Northern Michigan, and was very surprised by Bay Harbor. En route the the course from Traverse City you pass through many small rural towns that feel as if they had their glory days in the 70's. However, as you get to the... More

Played the Links and Quarry at twilight. The course was manicured, meticulous and challenging. The views and vistas were amazing. Probably the best golf course we played on our 2 week golf junket in Michigan.

Great kept secret! We were looking for some late casual dining at Bay Harbor. We came across the Bay Harbor Golf Club Links Grill. It was very quiet, with great food. Salads, sandwiches , tuna salad, fish, etc. My husband and I were the only ones on the terrace for a sunset dinner overlooking the lake & a few golfers.... More

technically this was probably the nicest golf course i've ever golfed. it's beautiful. we golfed the links and the quarry, and they were both beautiful. we did the twilight because it was only 100 dollars, as opposed to the normal $240. and i think that was a wise choice, given that we'd never been there and every hole was a...

My husband and I played the Quarry and the Preserve. The courses are esthetically pleasing to the eye; the views of Lake Michigan are spectacular; the homes surrounding the Quarry are stunning. The Quarry is the most difficult of the 3 courses (Quarry, Preserve, Links) but well worth playing. We played the Quarry first and it did help that on... More

Do play. It's one of the best courses around. We played the Links and the Quarry. Wow to both. The Quarry was simply stunning from #3 through #9. The Links views were amazing on the lake all day. Just try to hit your drive into the seemingly infinite Lake Michigan on the 7th tee. But the course staff was terrible.... More

Two of the most beautiful courses I've played. The Quarry has some very challenging holes with rough that really IS rough. The Links course has views that will rival Pebble Beach. Each course is fair but challenging. I loved playing them. They are will kept and the staff is friendly. The course is quite pricey.

We played all three nines on a rainy, windy day and still had a great time. Beautiful designs, wonderfully conditioned and friendly staff. All very challenging. Stayed at Boyne Highlands Resort and like their on-site courses too.

Played Monday, August 10. Links nine played in 2 hours; Quarry nine took 3.5 hours. No marshals and we (foursome) waited on literally every shot. Walked through the pro shop and when asked how it was, we said it took 3 1/2 hours to play the Quarry nine which was ridiculous. The two guys in the pro shop just looked... More

Went to Bay Harbor with a group of 12 for a trip that had been scheduled for several months. We were supposed to play all three courses on the same day. (It was clearly written in our contract with them.) We would play 18 holes, have a two hour break to eat lunch at the course, and then finish with... More
