Traverse City Golf Course Tour

The great irony of golf is that we strive for perfection we know is unachievable.  This is both the knot of our frustration and the source of our joy.  No one knows this better than Steve Smyers, the acclaimed architect who designed the golf course at LochenHeath. His award-winning designs, revered by the world's top players, embody rich tradition, ethics, and passion for the game.  Our course is an opponent to be reckoned with.  For we may beat our fellow golfers, but we can never beat the course.

One of Michigan's Highest Ranked Golf Clubs

LochenHeath located in Traverse City, is one of Michigan’s highest ranked private golf clubs. LochenHeath Golf Club has been named to Golf Digest’s "Best in State" list for 2017. LochenHeath is of Scottish origin. "Loch" is translated as lake and "Heath" is a native grass. The property, a scenic bluff overlooking East Grand Traverse Bay in the upper Lower Peninsula of Northern Michigan, was once a cherry orchard owned and operated for over 75 years by the Maitland family. The course hugs the shore of Grand Traverse Bay, offering sweeping views of its crystal blue waters.

LochenHeath is one of only a small handful of Northern Michigan Golf courses crafted in the Scottish links style. The 7,280-yard-course features rolling terrain, wide-open fairways, and deep, well-placed bunkers. The design is a player favorite both for the unmatched beauty of the setting and as a challenge for golfers who want to test their prowess in the sport.

Whether you're looking for golf courses in Traverse City, Elk Rapids, Petoskey or Charlevoix, LochenHeath is sure to deliver a challenging round of golf with beautiful scenic views of Lake Michigan.
