Stunning nature and a love for golf come together to bring you the Crooked Tree Golf Club at the Boyne Highlands Resort.

For pro golfers, this range does not pose much of a challenge, being as it is the shortest golf course in the area, but for the beginners, this course is a perfect stepping stone to mastering the clubs. The golf club comes with 18 holes, private tutoring by professionals, cottages for accommodation on the premises, a grill with outdoor seating and other such great facilities. A trip to this golf club, which sits overlooking the Little Traverse Bay, is truly a sight to remember.
