Belvedere Golf Club -- Charlevoix, Mich.
Northern Michigan is home to a host of headline-makers (Bay Harbor, Tree Tops, Arcadia Bluffs). But you have to scan the fine print to find this sleeper, which Willie Watson designed in 1925, just after wrapping up his work at the Olympic Club. Artful greens are the main defense at Belvedere. Approach them as you would the daily paper: by trying to read between the lines.
