Greywalls Golf Course at Marquette Golf Club
Greywalls Golf Course is the newer of two golf courses at Marquette Golf Club in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It's entirely different from the classic original course, playing on rugged and rocky land and features some very dramatic holes.
It was designed by golf course architect Mike Devries, who is a Michigan native and interned under Tom Doak. Devries has a similar minimalist approach, moving very little land here. That's apparent, as there are few flat lies to be found and the course can make a golfer's first time here a little uncomfortable, especially considering some of the course's most difficult holes come right out of the gate.
Many of the holes play on high ground and bring in views of Lake Superior. It also means the winds can pick up often around here, and coupled with fescue and bluegrass, can play much like a links-style design, though this is a golf course that hardly looks "traditional".
