The courses offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the country including beautiful hardwoods, ridges, and views that stretch for more than 40 miles.

The resort, located outside the alpine village of Gaylord, Michigan, is surrounded by pristine lakes, rivers, and streams, allowing guests to enjoy the unfettered beauty of Northern Michigan, and a wide selection of restaurants that serve locally caught, farmed, and sourced ingredients.

While the quality and quantity of great golf courses are available at Treetops, the golf academy is just as strong offering a variety of programs. PGA instructors offer both indoor and outdoor lessons for golfers of all ages and skill levels. Treetops is also one of only four golf academies in Michigan to be recognized as a Golf Channel Academy.
