The Masterpiece Course is just one of four 18-hole championship courses at Treetops Resort. There is also an excellent par-3 golf course available. Robert Trent Jones designed the course, making it his final design in Michigan. The course is situated at the headwaters of the Pigeon River, utilizing to the full extent the diverse terrain of valleys, ravines, and expansive plains. The golf course is a challenging combination of water hazards, tricky elevation changes, and long grasses. The signature par-3 sixth boasts a120-foot drop that provides panoramic views of the Pigeon River Valley. The front nine offers stunning scenery but the back nine is where the real challenges begin. The fairly wide-open fairways on the 10th and 11th holes run parallel to one another but their hilliness can cause some frustrating lies. The Masterpiece Course has a rather nontraditional layout, beginning and ending with par 5s.

    We have golfed many courses in Gaylord and found this course to be the best, next to the Tribute. Almost every fairway offers a new challenge and just the views are something to see. Very unique greens and tee off spots.

    Wow! This course has got it all - elevation changes, manicured sand traps, just enough water and very challenging greens. The greens were some of the toughest reads that I've ever played and were much quicker than I'm used to. There were a couple bad spots on a few of the greens but they were minor and that's the only thing I can think of to keep this course from getting a perfect rating. The staff were very accomodating and even helped book us an afternoon play at another course because they were too full for a replay. If you can only play one course in the Gaylord area, play this one!
