The Monarch Course at Garland Resort is just one of four championship golf courses available at the resort. It's Garland's original design and has earned the nickname "King of Michigan Golf Courses." The course was carefully carved from mature pine forests and the terrain is dotted with several lakes, ponds, and streams. At 7,145 yards from the back tees, there is plenty of room to grip it and rip it. The water hazards mostly come into play along the manicured fairways while strategically placed bunkers flank the generous greens. Warming up before tackling the Monarch Course will serve you well since it opens with the no. 1 handicap hole. Distance and accuracy are needed off the tee on this par 4 to avoid the lake and trees to the right. Monarch's front nine is known as one of northern Michigan's toughest stretch of holes.
