Great Golf Escape
The 6,828-yard Greywalls course at Marquette Golf Club on Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a wild, tumbling adventure routed through a forested valley and around wetlands and exposed granite outcroppings. It is a testament to DeVries' imagination that he could envision any course at all on this heaving property, much a good one.
The tee shot at the 579-yard first hole demands concentration not because it's particularly demanding--in fact, it's a reasonably generous landing area on a sweeping, dogleg right--but because of the views from the tee. On a clear day you can see all the way to Lake Superior.
Another memorable hole is the 312-yard fifth, where a towering rock face protects the green--the very walls that give the course its name.
Greens fees at the Greywalls course are $90-$125, but the rate drops to $85 if you use a Stay & Play package with four local hotels listed on the club web site. For reservations call 866-678-7171 or marquettegolfclub.com
