Treetops Resort boasts an astounding 81 holes of golf, including championship courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Tom Fazio, and Rick Smith. There are four 18-hole golf courses and an interesting little par-3 layout. The Premier Course is the only Tom Fazio-designed golf course in Michigan. The course sprawls across rolling terrain dotted with trees. Fazio designed a layout that appeals to a variety of different skill levels since it is both challenging and forgiving. Strategically placed bunkers are balanced by straightforward fairways and well manicured greens. A water hazard comes into play once on the tricky par-3 11th. There are also a few interesting risk/reward opportunities, including the par-4 15th. Long hitters may get lucky and reach the triple-tiered green if there is a favorable wind. When Fazio was asked to choose a signature though, he couldn't pick just one

    Great shot values and hole variety, the Premier still holds its own as one of the most exciting courses in northern Michigan. Tons of fun to play with so many up and downhill shots, but nothing is unfair, as you'd expect from player-favorite Fazio.
