Bay Harbor Golf Club boasts 27 holes that are divided into three completely distinct nines, played in three 18-hole combinations. Unlike the waterfront Links and Quarry nines, the Preserve plays through the woods, a more typical landscape of courses in Northern Michigan. The layout winds through towering hardwoods and lush, grassy meadows sprinkled with wildflowers. The different landscape does not make it any easier than the other two nines though. The golf course features many tight fairways and forced carries that demand accuracy. As its name would indicate, Bay Harbor Golf Club's Links nine is a traditional links course that plays along the shores of Lake Michigan. The course winds along 150-foot bluffs that offer stunning views overlooking Little Traverse Bay. Its signature seventh hole on the Links course has earned the title of being of the top 500 in the world, according to Golf Magazine.
