“Lovely Views, a Fair and Enjoyable Test...”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is a terrific course, with lovely views of the surrounding hills from every hole and well thought out holes, all immaculately groomed. It's an older style course. Heavily bunkered, smaller, slightly elevated greens and narrow tree-lined fairways. A classic Trent Jones layout that rewards "target" golf. I played from the forward men's tees and had a most enjoyable round.

“Great Escape Golf”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Excellent golf course, food and lodging! This golf course was just one out of nine championship courses in our unlimited golf package. All the Boyne courses are exceptional and the golf package is the best deal available.

“Classic Robert Trent Jones track ... one of top USA courses!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

The Heather course at Boyne Highlands was designed by Robert Trent Jones ... enough said ... I had the pleasure to meet and have lunch with him in Fort Lauderdale back in 1989 ... for certain one of the finest course designers ever. The course has a 74.0 rating from the Black tees with a 131 slope ... from the Blues a 73.7/131 ... down to Red 67.8/111. It is gorgeous. Rated by Golf Magazine as one of the top 100 courses in America. It has been around for over 30 years and the guy who commissioned the course was Everett Kircher who started the whole Boyne Resort Properties Group back in the 50's and 60's. Mr. Kircher never did anything bad. You will enjoy this course ... as well as the others available ... the lodging and restaurant facilities are top flight with a proximity to great fishing and boating in Harbor Springs Little Traverse Bay area ... enjoy.

“Almost a eagle is good enough”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

I am only a decent golfer. At 57 years old I still cannot straighten out my slice with any certainty. Finally but a new driver that can compensate. Usually can hit 240 sometimes 260. First time at Heathers I read description of #15 which requires a towering long drive over the trees to take a shortcut on the dogleg left. My brother-in-law challenged me and well I lucked out went over the trees and landed 160 yards from green. Hit a 6 iron into the green it stuck and rolled to 7 feet. Well, when your a hacker you never hit 3 good shots in row. Sure enough I missed the eagle but still won the bet. Play this course. You will not be disappointed.
