Dunmaglas Golf Course in Charlevoix
CHARLEVOIX, Mich. - Dunmaglas Golf Course is a lesser-known, Scottish-inspired course just around the corner from nationally recognized Bay Harbor Golf Club and Crooked Tree Golf Club.
Dunmaglas was originally built in 1992 by owner Chuck MacGillivray, who with the help of Larry Mancour and Dean Refram, built a very difficult golf course set on nearly 900 acres. A low-handicapper, MacGillivray wanted a stern test, which led to the golf course not getting much daily play.
Dunmaglas Golf Course was sold in 1995, and new ownership made a heavy commitment to making the course more playable for all abilities. Trees were cleared and bunkers were filled in, as well as new tee boxes were built.
Today, the golf course is playable for every level and is still on the same scenic and expansive property with a mix of forest holes and more wide-open, heathland-style holes, some of which play well above Lake Charlevoix.
Dunmaglas Golf Course plays 6,776 yards from the championship tees, though there are four other sets playing as short as 4,873 yards.
