Little Gem

This course has major elevation changes which make it a little quirky. And you need to lay-up off 15 tee to avoid rough. But it has dramatic views of the bay and Crooked Lake plus dynamite green designs that will challenge even skilled putters. Conditioning is A- Greens rolling 10.5 on Stimp. Pro shop, bar and restaurant are very friendly and offer very inviting spot for dinner.
Of the six courses I’ve played in Harbor Springs, including those at three times the price, this is my favorite.

Hidden Gem

Little Traverse Bay is a Hidden Gem in the Petoskey area. Gorgeous views, good pace of play, and not crowded. Enjoy a fantastic meal after the round while overlooking the course and Little Traverse Bay.

Best of the lot

We played this course, Wequinasong (sp?), True North and Boyne Heather. Hands down, this was my favorite. And super cheap. Public course, now listed for sale for $2.5 mm but with deed restrictions that make it hard to sell.
Loved the layout which minimized blind tee shots. What you see is what you get including spectacular views of the Bay. Conditioning was good but not up to True North (private). Greens nice at 9.5 with lots of slope (typical for the area).
Just loved looking at these holes from the tee and take a minute to look back from the green. Good bar and restaurant next to pro shop.

Perfect condition

The fairways are like carpets and consistent from hole to hole. The greens are fast but hold the ball.

Slow play

Great course, tough greens, friendly starter. But, everyone mentioned being busy, and how difficult it was, but no ranger to speed up play, so a 5 1/2 hour round. Also, spend a couple of bucks and put some yardage on the sprinkler heads, a 4 inch disc every 50 yards barely visible in the fairway is not "well marked"

Little Traverse

I have played here for years when I visit Harbor Springs. Still enjoy the layout. Greens are a challenge because the break of the green is based upon the mountain, not the lay of the green.

Stunningly gorgeous track!

About LT Bay, Golf Digest said "Probably not a more beautiful golf course in the world...". Sounds like hyperbole, but it's true. (yes, really)

If you're in the area and like to golf, you simply MUST play here.
