About The Course
Located 30 minutes from Traverse City, and just miles from Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, this golf course sits amongst all the Northern Michigan splendor one could ask for. Playing at over 6700 yards from the back tees, the “The Old Course” at Sugar Loaf can take a bite out of the most experienced golfer.
“The Old Course” at Sugar Loaf is well maintained and takes full advantage of mature Northern Michigan hardwoods, specimen spruce trees, and native grasses. Poa annua greens, tees and fairways provide quality turf for your golfing pleasure. Enjoy award winning groves of day lilies and irises as you navigate your way around the course. Visit in the spring and admire the trillium and daffodils and other wild flowers that fill the floor of the forest.

Warming up or working on that golf swing
With our natural turf practice range you will be able to loosen those muscles up in no time. Not only can you work on your short irons, but swing away with that jumbo driver because our range will handle those 300 yard drives; no mats or nets to worry about here.
Range Season Pass available in our online pro-shop.
“Drive for show, putt for dough”
Need some work on that putting stroke?
Or maybe chipping is what is holding your game back. Even though the Sleeping Bear Dunes is only minutes away, you don’t have to practice your sand shots there.
Fine tune those skills in one of our two practice bunkers. Our practice area has everything your game needs. Plenty of room to work on those tricky shots that help save those pars.
You will have that short game in shape in no time.
Take a look around the Pro-shop before you head out to the first tee, and don’t forget to stock up on all your needs for a great round. (gloves, balls, tees.)
Browse through the merchandise, and pick up that logo hat or shirt, or try on a new pair of golf shoes to keep you on solid ground.
Maybe pick up a gift certificate for that golfing fanatic in the family. What better way to get that birthday gift or start your Christmas shopping early!
