Treetops: Michigan's Premier Golf Destination

There are five green reasons why golf fanatics come together to play at Treetops Resort every year. We arguably have the best collection of golf courses in the Midwest, boasting 81 holes of golf on spectacular terrain totaling five award-winning courses inspired and professionally designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Tom Fazio, and Rick Smith. Treetops Resort is also proudly recognized as having the #1 Par 3 Course in North America: Threetops. Treetops is a popular destination for golf enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

Here’s why they make the trip to play Gaylord, Michigan golf courses:


As the only golf course in Michigan designed by Tom Fazio, the Premier course is a special treat for Michigan golfers. With rolling fairways and just one water hazard, Premier is player-friendly. On the other hand, with steep slopes and plenty of dogleg turns, Premier still challenges even the most seasoned players.


Golf Magazine named the Signature one of the best golf courses in the Midwest, and we think you will agree. With all of her sloping mounds and narrow fairways, the Rick Smith-designed Signature course will keep your whole group on their toes.


When the Masterpiece opened in 1987, Golf Digest named it the second-best new course in the country. Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed this course with deep ravines, plentiful sand traps, tough pin placement, numerous water hazards, and constant elevation changes. The Masterpiece is widely considered the most challenging course at Treetops.


Rick Smith’s third resort course design is the most player-friendly course at Treetops. The Tradition course has less elevation change, wider fairways, and a more natural landscape than the other courses on the property. Four tee box options and few hidden shots make for a pleasant and confidence-building round of golf.


Treetops’ nine-hole executive course is widely considered the top par-3 course in the country, and for good reason. Photo-worthy vistas surround the course’s brief but often steep fairways. Golfers looking for a fun warm-up round or a quickie game before they head back home will not be disappointed by Threetops.
