The newest addition to the Treetops collection is the Rick Smith Tradition.  The course has a classic look of one that was built many years ago and conditions reminiscent of a private country club.  With short distances from green to tee and traversing gentle terrain, golfers will be given the option of riding or walking.  In 2008, the Tradition joined the other courses at Treetops on Golf Digest's list of 4 1/2-star courses.  The Smith "Tradition" is possibly the Treetops' best kept secret and arguably Northern Michigan's best golfing value.

Tom Fazio Premier

Tom Fazio, America's number one golf course architect in the 1990s, brought his talent and vision to Treetops. The Fazio Premier blends in perfectly with the undulating terrain in Northern Michigan. It is also the only Tom Fazio designed course in Michigan. Many have described the Premier as user friendly, with its wide, bowl-shaped fairways and large undulating greens. The Premier also features one of the finest collection of short par 4's found anywhere. The Fazio Premier still ranks among Golfweek's list of the "Top 100 Resort Courses."

Robert Trent Jones Masterpiece

The Robert Trent Jones Sr. Masterpiece opened in 1987 to further fuel Northern Michigan's golf boom.   The Masterpiece has earned the reputation as a challenging course that is as much fun to look at as it is to play.   Still garnering accolades, in 2007, Great Lakes Golf ranked the Jones Masterpiece third best in the Midwest behind only Whistling Straits and Arcadia Bluffs.  The course features dramatic elevation changes, a wide variety of design features and breathtaking views of the Pigeon River Valley.  The famed Par 3 sixth inspired Mr. Jones to coin the name Treetops...and the rest is history.
