Course Tour

True North is a spectacular layout carved from Michigan’s legendary north woods by award-winning golf course architect Jim Engh. The land’s rolling topography provides for an abundance of elevated tee shots and incredible views.

Golfers of all abilities will enjoy True North. From the Championship Tees, the course measures a stout 7,027 yards. Other tees play as short as 4,834 yards to a longer and more challenging 6,850 yards.

True North features one incredible golf hole after another. Greens are large and have gentle undulations, while fairways are wide and framed by tall fescue.

Since opening nearly a decade ago, True North has received a host of regional and national awards, including being ranked along with the Best in the State Michigan by Golf Digest magazine.
