MattyG, if you even get back up here to N.Mi., you need to explore some of the 'locals' courses. Benzie County may be the smallest county in Michigan per square miles, but we boast some of the best value courses in the state, all within a 30 minute drive. Our motto is 'the less you pay, the more you can play. Throw in some scenic drives and one of the top Nat'l Parks in Sleeping Bear Dunes, and you have a top 10 vacation getaway in the midwest.
