Black Forest Golf Club

If you revel in the feeling of having a spectacular golf course almost to yourself, the best course in northern Michigan beckons you. An 18-hole course, the Black Forest, Tom Doak's first masterpiece of minimalist golf course architecture, each hole is carved through a lush canvas of pine, oak, and maple trees so thick that each hole is an island of isolated natural beauty. The dramatic bunkering on Black Forest contrasts with the verdant forest backdrop, and when you arrive at the marvelously contoured greens the challenge has only begun.

The course opened in 1991 and features 7,044 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 73. The other course at Black Forest Resort,  will add a round on the gentler but equally scenic Wilderness Valley “hidden gem” resort course designed by Michigan Hall-of-Famer Al Watrous. The course features 6,510 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71 . The course rating is 70.6 and it has a slope rating of 126 on Bermuda grass. Designed by Al Watrous, the The Valley golf course opened in 1980.

David Smith manages the courses as the Owner. If your objective is a thoroughly delightful day of golf and fun with good friends, Black Forest & Wilderness Valley are your ideal northern Michigan destination.
