Love this course

This is one of my favorite courses in Northern Michigan. Stunning bay views, fun layout and great course conditions, especially for October. The staff could be friendlier though honestly. The starter was super nice and talkative but the jerk behind the counter at the pro shop needed a serious attitude adjustment. This isn’t the first time I’ve had that interaction with him either. It is what it is. I love this course and will continue to come back.

crooked tree

Course layout is great with beautiful views of the Lake and Bay Harbor. Challenging up and down track. Putting was very difficult the first time. I can't believe the putting green had no holes.

This course is a must

My uncle and I had a package through Boyne and it came with four rounds. We had a 9:20 tee time, and from the second we pulled into the parking lot, we knew it was going to be a magical day. We had played The Moore course the previous day and we thought it was great. When we approached the first tee here at C.T, we were blown away, and it blew The Moore out of the water. This course is spectacular. The layout is rather diverse, but there's a handful of dog-legs and blind shots, so be prepared to drive up to see
1.Where the pin is and
2. if the group ahead of you is clear and out of your way.

We were supposed to play our second 18 of the day at The Ross after our round at C.T, but it was so spectacular we switched our reservation and played there again around 4:30! This course is absolutely worth playing. Regardless of how well you played, you'll be thinking about the course for the days to come.

Amazing layout, unfortunately the new houses block its original beauty

Great course that has a lot of character. If you’re looking for a challenge, then this course is for you. The undulations in the ground were out of this world. It’s definitely a challenge to safely land your flop shot 50 feet above the green. Personally, I like playing at Boyne’s resort, more. But if you want a change of pace then come on over to this beauty.

Another Arthur Hills gem!

As I referenced in an earlier review, I have become a big fan of Arthur Hills' courses over the years. Crooked Tree adds to this. It's a great course that is part of the Boyne family of courses.
There are a variety of tee boxes available for different playing levels. The course conditions were more than acceptable for this early in the year for Northern Michigan. The course itself offered a number of challenges including fast, undulating greens (some of the undulations have to be seen to be believed), difficult approaches to greens protected by deep bunkers, blind tee shots, and beautiful vistas of Little Traverse Bay. (Some of these rival Crooked Tree's better known "brother" course Bay Harbor, which is just down the road.
All in all, playing Crooked Tree was a great experience that I look to repeat the next time I'm in the Petoskey area.
Highly recommended!
