June 4, 2015

Northern Michigan’s cool breezes, rolling, forested terrain and lake views validate the region’s label as “America’s Summer Golf Capital.” Thanks to offerings like Boyne Highlands, where stay-and-play packages start at $88 per person, per night, and unlimited golf packages start at $112 per person, per night, it’s also one of America’s most affordable golf destinations. Boyne guests have access to four on-site championship tracks, the Arthur Hills, the Donald Ross Memorial, the Heather and the Moor, plus more courses at nearby sister properties. On Sundays after 2 p.m. on the Moor course, a spouse and two children can fill out your foursome at no extra charge. Bargain-hunters will also appreciate Boyne’s Great Escape 5-night package, which starts at $880 per person and includes lodging, meals, unlimited golf, tennis, range use and cocktail parties. Talk about Boyne for your buck.
