Green on steroids. Walking on the greens are like walking on super plush carpet. Greens are challenging but true. Follow your eye. Great friendly staff. Very attentive to your needs.

Fall Experience Like None Other

I've played this course twice during the June/July months which was an awesome experience. I truly have zero negative comments about this course and everything that comes with it. The Boyne staff and amenities has been perfect every time we have played here (service, food, drinks, etc). 7 of us just played this course on October 10th and it was by far the best fall golf experience any of us have ever had. Hole #13 has to be one of the coolest holes to play in America in the fall season. The colors were absolutely amazing and even though the greens were aerated about 2 weeks before, they still rolled very well. The even had a beverage cart out which was a huge plus for us. I would love to play this course at least once a year, preferably in the fall. One of our favorites in Michigan for sure.

Fun experience playing a sampling of famous courses

After having been recommended by a friend, we looked forward to playing this course all summer. The course was in great shape. Donald Ross apparently loved sand with hole designs that included sand traps in the fairways as well as guarding most greens. Count on additional strokes.

Staff was friendly and attentive to keeping balls on the driving range. Our only complaint was pace of play. We had fairly long waits on most holes and starting at hole 10, groups were stacked 4 deep on some holes. We did not expect this on a course in the Boyne collection.

My favorite up north course

We play here as part of our Ryder Cup style outing every year, played the course twice, the 24th and the 27th.

Tough but fair. The fairways are wide enough but don't let your ball go too far astray as you will be in jail in the trees or high grass.

The Par 4 5th (#1 HDCP) is the 2nd most picturesque hole on the course, with the par 5 #13 taking the honors as the best looking hole around (as many have previously attested).

The Par 4 10th is tricky. AN iron is all you need off the tee with your second shot to an elevated green. Hit it too far and you roll off the back or left or right sides. and down the hill. Hit it short and your in the sand at the bottom of the hill.

Par 5 number 11 is the toughest hole for me on the course. Uphill tee shot with your second shot either going over the left side of the fairway or over a substantial fairway bunker center and right. Green is on the smallish side and mowed on the front back and right so a long shot will roll off into fairway.

There is a huge waste bunker on the left side of hole number 8 but part of the bunker has been submerged in water the last two seasons due to the abundance of rain received, that's the only negative I have about the course (blaming Mother Nature).

Arthur Hills is a must play course if you are visiting Petoskey / Bay Harbor to play.

The Heather never disappoints

We play here every year as part of our annual golf outing (32 players this year) and as always, it never disappoints.

The course remains in pristine condition. The rough is thick but not too long. The fairways are impeccable and the greens run true.

Plenty of dog legs (to the right and left) and keeping it in the fairway on your tee shots as opposed to having it run out into the rough is key.

9th hole is always the toughest hole for me, but I escaped with a bogie. The 18th is a classic finishing hole with the pond in front of the green.

Don't know the exact price we paid as it was part of an overall package with lodging and was handled by our commissioner.

The Heather is a must play course for those traveling to Petoskey / Bay Harbor!

Way overpriced.

Boyne practice area is great, but the courses are way overpriced for a round. The moor is a decent course, but $90-110? That’s borderline absurd.

Great course but pricey

Gorgeous course with huge elevation changes. Course conditions were what one expects from Boyne. Course is a destination course, but look to play at non-peak times to avoid large fees.

Unique Layout

This course played extremely fair being fairly forgiving off the tee, but offering some challenges on approach shots. There were some very unique layouts of some of the holes that I really enjoyed. I'm not sure if it will be in my regular rotation as someone that looks for value-plays, but I would definitely recommend giving this course a shot.

I love this course!

Besides Bay Harbor, this is by far my favorite course that Boyne has to offer. Great Northern Michigan course with plenty of challenge, huge elevation changes, and awesome views. Course is difficult, but fair. Definitely a must add for your next visit to the area.

Beautiful but Very Flat Mountain

The Heather is a classic Robert Trent Jones Sr. course. The course is set at the base of ski slopes and is framed by mountains and is now my 5th favorite mountain course all the time. While the majority of the year this course is a ski track it becomes a golfers getaway in the summer months. While relaxing The Heather is moderately challenging as it weaves through tall mature trees and the majority of the holes are doglegs that require proper distance and position to advance to the green. The course has minor elevation changes but the elevated greens are usually guarded by large and deep bunkers. Note to golfers coming from warmer summer climates, bring some light colder weather gear, The Boyne Courses can start in the 40s before they reach the perfect 70s as it did with my morning tee time. The fairways while tree-lined were generous in size and good for a wide range of golfers, especially from the correct tee box.
