About Loon Golf Resort

The Loon Golf Resort has grown to include a second location in Gaylord: The Ridge, formerly the Marsh Ridge Golf Resort. The Loon offers a townhome village with four-bedroom/four-bathroom units with full kitchens just steps from the clubhouse restaurant and the course. The Ridge is more versatile with hotel-style rooms, suites and free-standing condos, all within walking distance to the Summit Grill. Lodges named Copenhagen (11 rooms, one apartment), Summit (20 rooms) and Bergen (12 rooms) all feature a large common/recreation area. The Scandinavian Cabin sleeps 12 with six bedrooms, a fireplace, full kitchen and living area. Its 6,231-yard course is short but beautiful. The 6,418-yard Lakes course sports four holes on Lake Michaywe roughly four miles from both resort properties.

Interesting layout

Butch Harmon signature course, pictures of Natalie Gulbis everywhere may have raised expectations too high. The yardage markers were inconsistent and sometimes non-existent, but the holes were interesting. Some of the tips on the scorecard were laughable: "Par 5, hit it long and straight", or "Long par 5, lay up if you can't make it in two".

Great Course

Took the family - all had a great time. They loved #18 - over the water...Compared to the near courses there (within a few miles) - this one takes the prize. Not as massive as Tree Tops' courses....but the Loon is worth the $$ (We got the Hot Deal...)

Course was in great shape!

Played a foursome- slow going but a super nice day, so who cares! 10th hole jam up, lunch people merging back into play caused a big backup!

Beautiful course, poorly managed

One of the most interesting courses I've played. Many challenging holes, but pace of play was extremely slow. Three hours to finish 9 holes. Bag boys were great, loaded clubs onto the cart but then there was no starter on the first hole. It was a free for all. Would not go back unless they change their start procedures.

First time here

Won't be the last! Great setting and great place to relax for 18. The lady working at the bar was super friendly. We had a later tee time and she stuck around till we made the turn to see if we needed anything before she left for the day.

great shape, fun course

I haven't played the course in many years. I was mildly impressed with the course condition. It was in very good shape. There are some very challenging holes, especially if you play from the blue tees. We were a twosome, behind a foursome, it felt like it was taking a lot of time, but finished in 4 hours. Ate at the club after and the food was very good.

Very nice course with great views & great staff.

Arrived early due to unfamiliarity with the area. Was allowed to go off a little early due to folks with earlier tee time were late. Course was very well manicured and greens were consistent. Lots of trees and a fair amount of water, but not a lot of bugs, thank goodness. Did lose a few balls in the woods and water, so bring plenty of extras. Will definitely come back again someday. Very nice scenic setting in Northern Michigan with great views.

Hack hack hack!

Course was in great shape and pace was great, however I stunk up the place! Not long but tight in spots. Cut back jungle in some areas, and you can usually find an errant shot. Did notice additional landscaping, plantings, and workers.
