Golf Course Information
Tom Doak's Black Forest masterpiece has been playing to rave golfer reviews and receiving national and regional accolades since it opened in 1992. Among the honors the layout has received are:
* Top New Public Courses in America" - Golf Digest
* Top New Courses You Can Play in the United States" - Golf Magazine
* Top Modern Courses in the United States" - Golfweek
* Best Public Course in Northern Michigan" - Detroit News
* Best Public Course in Northern Michigan" - Great Lakes Golf
Local golfers refer to Wilderness Valley as the "hidden gem." The Al Watrous-designed course does not garner the publicity of its much-tougher Black Forest sister layout, but it's plenty "hard enough for most people," according to Manager/Head Professional Corey Crowell. He also says, "Good players will have a good time."
One feature Wilderness Valley definitely shares with its newer neighbor is the serene beauty of the surrounding emerald forest. And among the evergreens and hardwoods, in the early morn or settling dusk, you may notice a few whitetail deer, a wild turkey, or even a badger.
