Unique track!

Very interesting layout with amazing elevation changes throughout. Some blind/semi-blind shots that for me as a first timer made it play even tougher.
Good conditions overall and a good value in the realm of Northern Michigan golf.

Play It

The Tribute is a challenging course with numerous holes that require carries to test your length and/or club selection. We always enjoy playing the Tribute, and the course is in great shape. If you meet Ranger Lou, he and the beverage cart girl are the best ambassadors for the course. Go…Play… Enjoy!!!

Amazing views

This gem of a course is one of the best I’ve ever played. Great views from elevated tee boxes, lush fairways, and perfect greens. I’ll play this course as often as I can and recommend you don’t pass it up if you’re in Gaylord.

Course was in great shape. Love the layout. Played it last year and it was in better shape this year. Staff was awesome. Caught a great deal on GN. If your in the Gaylord area, I highly recommend hitting this track up.

Wow!

The course is somewhat of a challenge just because of elevation changes. Club selection is guess work on some holes. Wind gust did not make it any easier. Greens were very receptive . Would play here again on a calm day. It's nice to hit 290 yard drives at 68.

MI Fall golf - almost perfect

The Tribute is one of Michigan's premier golf courses to begin with, then add the spectacular colors of fall and it's truly an amazing experience. The greens had not been aerated or top-dressed, so this was another added bonus! The only thing missing was the sun to help magnify the intensity of tree colors!
