I’m continuing to work my way through various publications’ lists of the best golf courses in Michigan. This week, I bagged two more.
Belevedere is an old club in Charlevoix, Michigan. Designed by William Watson in 1925, it features maddeningly tiny greens with steep drop-offs. I found it very difficult to devise a shot to hold the greens. Watson, by the way, also designed Olympic Club’s Lakes Course, site of numerous national championships.
The other I played was Crooked Tree, which is laid out on bluffs overlooking the Little Traverse Bay in Petoskey, Michigan. The course recently went through a redesign by Arthur Hills.
I’ll have full reviews soon.
