Bear Lake Highlands - Bear Lake, Michigan

One of the best conditioned courses in the North - www.golfbearlake.com

 

Established in 1964, golfers of all skill levels will find Bear Lake Highlands a challenging but fair course to test their skills.  The amazing feature of this golf course is the incredible condtion the turf is in.  Even in April the course was lush and the greens were true.  The first hole is gorgeous and inviting and the rest of the course is just as nice.  When you get out into the course there is rolling terrain, water on seven holes and great views of Bear Lake. One of the best conditioned and scenic courses in Northern Michigan.

 

Fairways are wide, surrounded by hardwoods, and perfect for hitting off of.  There are good elevation challenges on several holes and a reasonable number of sand traps.  The greens will hold a shot and will putt true.  The greens are fast and nearly every putt will have a break to consider.    There are some blind shots, especially hidden water hazards, but there is always a safe shot.

 

This course was in impecable condition.  The first two holes offer a good chance to warm up and get a good score.  After that the shots are a bit more challenging.  Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy this beautiful, well groomed course.
