Experience Golf Near the Lake Michigan Shore
Golf is one of those activities that just brings people together. Either for a business outing or a gathering of friends, a round of golf provides the opportunity for conversation, connection with friends and family and general fun. Playing a few holes also offers a chance to get outdoors, relieve some stress, get a bit of exercise and build relationships and friendships. Many of our guests that come to the Saugatuck area to rest and unwind at Twin Oaks Inn also enjoy adding golf to their plans.
Not a great golfer? No worries! Lessons are available at most courses. Even if you don’t know your handicap, golf is a great time – especially when shared with friends. Taking in 18 holes on vacation always generates experiences that will remain in your memory. From the great tee shots to the ones that bounce off a tee box marker, drinking fountain, golf cart, snack bar, small tree or other obstacles, each round provides stories you can weave any way you like. Including a round of golf on your next getaway can add something new to your vacation or weekend escape.
Check out the list below and select a course that looks right for you. Then pack your clubs!
