Michigan: One of the Country’s Premier Fall Color and Fall Golf Destinations

The air is cooler and the days are shorter — but, there’s still time to tee off on a Michigan golf course. Over the next three weeks, the state will transform itself into one of the most stunning fall golf destinations in the country. Splendid hues of scarlet, rust, gold, and orange wind their way through stands of hardwoods, along with glistening shorelines and across sweeping vistas of Michigan’s breathtaking countryside.

There is no finer place for fall golf than the Great Lake state. A kaleidoscope of color bedazzles courses across Michigan. The state consistently ranks among the nation’s best golf scenes thanks to spectacular natural vistas and world-class layouts. 

If your idea of the perfect fall getaway is first-class golf courses and lodging, then Michigan’stop-ranked golf resorts will have you swooning. To add to the experience, there are a number of thrilling activities to indulge in the courses. The beauty of our Great Lakes state is that Michigan’s dramatic landscapes make the perfect backdrop for fall views, and they can be found in every region. While up north may boast the most spectacular views, there is amazing scenery in every part of the state throughout the fall color season.
