Each course is easily accessible from area freeways, and NEW this year our summer interns are creating an 8-10 part series to highlight the signature holes of each course, along with Tips from the Pro on how to play it best, with a few fun facts and golf course banter along the way.

TIPS FROM THE TEE EPISODE #2

Evergreen Resort

Evergreen brings you this week’s Tips From the Tee. Evergreen offers 27 total holes on its premises. The full-fledged 18-hole Spruce course boasts a 6,438 yards with a par of 71. Norway, the executive course, has 9-holes of fun with 2,793 yards with a par of 36.

Evergreen was designed in 1959 by Jerry Matthews. Jerry followed in his father’s, Bruce Matthews, footsteps by designing golf courses as a lifelong career. Jerry has 81-course designs under his belt, with only three not being in the Mitten State. His best-ranked work features Michigan Golf Magazine’s number 3 rated golf course, Timberstone. Matthews is a highly-praised designer in the golf world, and Evergreen’s 27-holes are a great testament to Matthews work.

TIPS FROM THE TEE EPISODE #3

Eldorado Golf Course

Eldorado was designed in 1996 by Bob Meyer. The course features both bentgrass fairways and greens. While other courses in the area typically feature bentgrass greens, Eldorado is one of the few that have it on the fairways. Bentgrass is seen as a more luxurious choice of grass within the golf industry. 

Eldorado’s location is par to none. It is only 4 miles south of downtown Cadillac. It is directly off of M-115, and less than a ¼ mile off of US-131 where travelers see the beautiful course while driving by.

TIPS FROM THE TEE EPISODE #4

Lakewood on the Green Golf Course

Father and son team Norm & Pete Smith took 7 years to build the original course which first opened in 1980. By 1985, Lakewood on the Green was rated as “Michigan’s toughest, prettiest nine-hole golf course” in The Wedge (National Golf Foundation Market Report). 

Only 8 miles outside of downtown Cadillac and 7 miles from US-131 exit 176, Lakewood is extremely accessible to out-of-towners.

Adam Hodges, Director of Golf, helped Nate and Dawson understand signature hole number 10. Hole number 10 at Lakewood on the Green is a 356-yard par 4. Adam explains that the hole is quite tough, with the entire right side of the hole being water. The fairway slants from left to right naturally, so his advice is to hit the ball on the left side of the fairway and let the ball move to the center or even to the right side of the fairway.
