Michigan boasts more public golf courses than any other state in the U.S., and certainly some of the most beautiful scenery for learning the game of golf, from the rolling hills of the southern Lower Peninsula to rugged terrain in the U.P.
A member of the Gaylord Golf Mecca, Black Lake Golf Club is a public course designed by Rees Jones, with free Junior Golf clinics on summer Saturdays, Wednesday evening Learn to Play Golf Clinics, two and three-day golf schools, a Women Only Golf School, and private instruction.
In the West Michigan community of Allendale, on the campus of Grand Valley State University, The Meadows Golf Club is a place to learn or improve one’s golf game, in additional to playing it. The Meadows prides itself on complementing the educational mission of the campus by providing high quality instructional services. This golf season The Meadows is teaming up with the award-winning Kendall Academy to offer expanded instructions, lessons and clinics for the novice, weekend and competitive player alike.
The Fortress in Frankenmuth offers lessons by the half hour or hour for children and adults. Take your new skills to the 18-hole course and follow-up with dinner at the nearby Zehnder’s Restaurant, or make a surf-and-turf get-away of it with an overnight stay at Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel and Waterpark.
TimberStone Golf Academy at Pine Mountain Resort in Iron Mountain offers instruction, and a chance to play on the Upper Peninsula course that has earned a five star rating from Golf Digest magazine.
In the Detroit area the Fox Hills Learning Center at Fox Hills Golf Course in Plymouth instructs beginners to advanced players at “drop-in” sessions, on-course instructional leagues, and camps.
