Another place to golf Mackinac Island is Wawashkamo Golf Club. The course has 9 holes and 18 tees, five of which substantially change the hole.
Many first time players look at the card and see a fairly short, straight forward design. There are no water hazards, but there are pot bunkers and the ever present heather. This is challenging, frustrating and fun!
Marcia’s husband says, “I have played this course almost all my life and have never “conquered” it yet.” The key word is “yet” because once played is never enough!
You need to take a taxi or ride your bike to get there, but it is well worth it.
Golf Mackinac Island "putt-putt" style at The Greens of Mackinac, a beautiful putting course located at Mission Point Resort. It is a great place for passing time with family and friends.
There are no windmills or dinosaurs here! The 18 holes are undulating real grass greens. The site is right next to The Straits of Mackinac so you may see sailboats, yachts, huge ore boats, or even Coast Guard vessels passing by while you play.
This is always tops the list when we have house guests. Kids of all ages love this course and you will often see a novice golfer win!
The Bistro on the Greens is on site for after, or you can get beverages “to go” during your 18 holes.
Mission Point Resort's putting course is a relaxing and carefree way to enjoy golf and practice your putting skills at the same time.
No need to call in advance, just stop by and start the fun!
