Origins of one of Michiganís Favorite Courses

During the 1920's, Colonel Edwin S. George was a wealthy industrialist, philanthropist, and a golf fanatic. To him, the woods and rolling hills along Forest Lake possessed as much natural beauty as he had ever seen. So he enlisted the services of William Diddel - named on the "ten-best-yet-least-known" golf course designers of all time by Golf Digest - to lay out 18 holes. Later, Arthur Hills, world-famous golf course architect, redesigned several holes.

Ninety-One years after its original configuration, golfers still marvel at how the course follows the natural contours of the land and has stood the test of time as one of Michigan's finest courses. The course still reflects the same spirit and original features with signature undulating, well-protected greens and naturally contoured fairways. The entire course has an ambiance of serenity and tranquility that lets you concentrate on your game, enjoy the company of friends and experience the essence of the sport the way it was meant to be played.
