Bay harbor G.C. has three nine hole layouts-Preserve,Links, and Quarry' Each is unique, the Preserve is traditional tree lined, has some water, and narrow fairways, the Links is hilly, runs along the cliff above Lake Michigan, and has great views, the Quarry is partially in an old quarry and contains a variety of holes. It is generally felt that the Preserve is the easiest track but it can grab you if you are not watchful. The Links and the Quarry are the harder tracks but they play fairly as to carry and difficulty if you are honest about your ability and use the correct tee box. I often see players playing from the blue tees when their ability dictates that for a pleasurable round they should play from the forward tees. On this course such an attitude will only get you an unpleasant experience (many lost balls) and a frustrating day. Play the correct tee box, bring along your camera for wonderful pictures, and there isn't a better course you could play in Northern Michigan. After golf eat or have a beverage on the clubhouse deck that overlooks the 18th green and Little Traverse Bay.
