The Jones Masterpiece at Treetops
In 1985, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. stood at the future site of the first Treetops golf course and decided to build his Masterpiece here. The land overlooks the Pigeon River Valley, featuring heavy forests and rolling hills. When Masterpiece opened in 1987, Golf Digest named it the #2 new resort course in the United States.
Playing the Treetops Masterpiece Golf Course
Widely recognized as the most scenic course at Treetops, Masterpiece continues to live up to its name today. People can’t resist photographing the scenic hills, dramatic drops, and lush greens, not to mention the five water features. This course’s selfie backdrops cannot be beat.
With a slope rating of 147, Masterpiece is also considered our most challenging course. Continual elevation changes make club selection difficult. Use the detailed information on the scorecard to acclimate faster to the terrain variations. Hole five is an especially difficult par 5 and is recognized as one of the most challenging holes in Michigan.
Masterpiece Pro Tip: play one tee box shorter than usual.
Considered by many to be the best Treetops golf course, the Jones Masterpiece is the only golf course located on the main resort property.
