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

We played the Links/Quarry and thoroughly enjoyed both however the Quarry would have to rate as one of he beat nine hole stretch we have played anywhere. The course was in unbelieveable condition and the staff was outstanding. A real jewel in North Michigan that should not missed. Enjoy!!!

Played BH once when it was just opening, then again probably 4-5 yrs. later (the "date" selector didn't go back that far!). Beautiful course, clubhouse, sights/vistas, etc.. Not a cheap date, but worth it a time or two (or 3...?). Had it in a golf package one time and got a PM rate the other, so not quite as bad.... More

Just a breathtaking beautiful well kept golf course that every golfer should play at least once. Caught a cloudless Michigan summer Saturday and enjoyed every minute of it. Very challenging, but with the multiple tee boxes the course is playable for everyone. The Links and the Quarry are the 9 hole courses that are "must play". Course condition is outstanding.... More

Wow! I didn't plan on playing during my visit to the area. Was staying at the Inn at Bay Harbor Renaissance resort and all I heard was about Bay Harbor golf. So, I ventured a couple miles down to the clubhouse to see what was available the next day. Kirk was very helpful in times available and rates. I chose... More
