Manitou Passage Golf Club
Manitou Passage Golf Club is an Arnold Palmer Signature Course located in close proximity to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Inspired by a common vision to develop a destination golf course in the heart of Leelanau County, a group of passionate local golfers purchased Kings Challenge Golf Course. The group’s mission was not only to make the course more challenging for low handicap players, but also to meet the needs of the average player. As they made major renovations to the course and to the physical structures such as the clubhouse, patio, parking, roads and entrances, they never lost sight of their goal to preserve the natural wildlife habitat.
Manitou Passage Golf Club is located a few miles north of The Homestead. Stay and Play packages are available throughout the season at local resorts and inns.
Mountain Flowers Golf Course
Guests at Mountain Flowers savor spectacular views of the lakes, dunes and islands while playing the par 3, nine-hole golf course. Bring your camera because you won't believe your eyes. This scenic course contains some surprising elevations with views to match.
"...it is the spectacular views of Lake Michigan, the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Duens that make this course worth playing on a trip 'Up North'." - Oakland Press
