Although I don’t entirely agree with Golf Magazine’s Top 20 list, I am steadily working my way through it. At this point, I’ve played fourteen of the twenty. Here’s the status:

1. Forest Dunes, Roscommon ✓
2. Arcadia Bluffs, Arcadia ✓
3. Marquette (Greywalls), Marquette ✓
4. Tullymore, Stanwood ✓
5. Bay Harbor (Links/Quarry), Bay Harbor ✓
6. Lakewood Shores, Oscoda ✓
7. Black Lake, Onaway ✓
8. Treetops (Rick Smith Signature), Gaylord ✓
9. Belvedere, Charlevoix
10. Cedar River at Shanty Creek, Bellaire
11. Eagle Eye at Hawk Hollow, East Lansing ✓
12. Harbor Shores, Benton Harbor
13. Black Forest at Wilderness Valley, Gaylord ✓
14. Boyne Highlands (Heather), Harbor Springs
15. Shepherd’s Hollow (2nd/3rd Nines), Clarkston ✓
16. Grand Traverse Resort (The Bear), Acme
17. Sweetgrass, Harris ✓
18. Treetops (Tom Fazio), Gaylord ✓
19. Legend at Shanty Creek, Bellaire
20. Elk Ridge, Atlanta ✓

Lakewood Shores doesn’t make my Top 20 list. I think the course is there because of their aggressive promotion of golf packages and the faux-links style. I’d replace it with either Bedford Valley or Lyon Oaks.
