The Bear

Three Stellar Courses — One Great Golf Experience

Three great designers created three renowned golf courses offering varying levels of challenge for golfers at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Over the years, Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Links Magazine, and other authoritative sources have recognized Grand Traverse Resort and Spa as one of the finest golf destinations in the Midwest, if not beyond. Here’s a rundown on the courses.

The Bear

Celebrated as one of the most difficult golf courses in Michigan, The Bear was also recently ranked as the 18th-toughest course in America, according to Golf Digest. Designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1985, its design features Scottish terraced fairways, tiered greens, deep grassy roughs, moguls and mounds, and deep pot bunkers. With rolling land, trees, lakes, streams, orchards, and wildlife, The Bear is a mix of many elements golfers rarely see on one course.

The Wolverine

As Gary Player’s first signature course in Michigan, The Wolverine is designed to take advantage of the Resort’s diverse environment. Its flexibility, versatility, and playability with four sets of tees means it can be set up to accommodate golfers of all abilities. It’s challenging for a low handicap, yet playable and enjoyable for high handicappers. Each nine is distinctive. The front nine is on lowland terrain with water and wetlands; existing wetlands were enhanced to interweave with several holes on the front. The back nine is constructed on highland terrain with hardwoods, rolling hills, and views of East Grand Traverse Bay. Water comes into play on 13 holes.

Spruce Run

Starting out as the nine-hole Acme Public Golf Course and expanding to 18 holes in the 1970s, this course was redesigned as a 6,741-yard par-72 course in 1979 by former University of Michigan Golf Coach William Newcomb and renamed the Resort Course. In 1992, it became Spruce Run to reflect the spruce and fir trees that line its fairways and greens. It was modified to a par-70 during development of The Wolverine. More forgiving than The Bear, Spruce Run is fun to play, winding among rolling hills that surround the hotel and overlook Grand Traverse Bay.
