Fall colors are exploding on golf courses throughout northern Michigan -- and beyond - right now
There’s a secret to the best fall golf trips.
They have to be last-minute. That’s the only way to guarantee the best reason to play fall golf: Peak colors. And it’s the only way to guarantee good weather to enjoy such scenic surroundings.
From every e-mail and Facebook offer I’ve seen, peak colors are happening NOW in northern Michigan. The warm fall weather looks to be locked into the forecast for at least another week. If you’re one of the lucky few who has a flexible schedule, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. GolfNow.com anyone?
I’ve never played fall golf at any of Michigan’s magnificent up north golf resorts. I can only imagine what the treeline fairways at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Shanty Creek Resorts in Bellaire, Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa in Thompsonville, Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Acme and The Homestead’s Manitou Passage Golf Club in Cedar look like when the colors explode into reds, yellows and oranges. I’m jealous of anyone who has.
These same scenes are probably playing out across New England, Minnesota, Canada and any other northern locale that is still holding onto its golf season firmly with two hands. Grab your sticks – and don’t forget your camera – before the 2013 golf season closes in this neck of the woods for good.
