This nine hole public course is a par 36, featuring three par 5s, three par 4s, and three par 3s. Although the course has many difficult holes, the greens are considered the course’s most challenging aspect. The total yardage is 2,937 yards from the white tees and 2,602 yards from the red tees.

Walk-ons are always welcome; however, the scheduling of tee times is preferred. To schedule your round of golf, please call 906.643.8071 to set up your time. Collared shirts are not required; casual golf attire such as tee shirts, shorts, or blue jeans is acceptable.
