Golf Course Overview
The Wolverine, Gary Player's first signature course in the state of Michigan, opened in 1999. Golfers with low handicaps will find the par 72 course a challenge while players with high handicaps will still find it enjoyable. The front nine holes are set on lowland terrain with water and wetlands interwoven with several of the holes while the back nine are set on highland terrain with hardwoods, rolling hills and views of East Grand Traverse Bay. Strategically placed white sand bunkers, several large lakes, rolling fairways and gently contoured greens are also featured. Measuring 7,065 yards from the championship tees, the course has a USGA slope of 144 and a USGA rating of 73.9. This course also has three additional sets of tees for golfers of different levels.
The Club at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, located near both the Turtle Creek Casino and Leelanau Sands Casino, offers guests championship golf on three 18-hole courses, The Bear, The Wolverine and Spruce Run. Host to a fleet of 225 golf carts, a state-of-the-art clubhouse, and the Jim McLean Golf School, the facility has received the Silver Medal Resort award from Golf Magazine and is considered among the 50 best golf resorts by Conde Nast Traveler.
