Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
Agaming Golf Resort has 3 amazing and different courses to choose from, as well some of the nicest lodging accommodations in all of Northern Michigan. The Sundance golf course was rated 3rd best new golf course in the country when it opened in 2006, The Torch course and Antrim Dells are both 4 star Golf Digest rated with great views of Torch Lake and Lake Michigan. This is the best collection of quality golf with great pricing that you will find anywhere.

If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
Sundance has been one of the most popular golf courses in all of Michigan since it opened, it is very fair and playable but can be played from the tips at 7000 yards and become very tough especially if the wind is up. Torch is one of the most scenic golf courses in all of MI, with spectacular views of Torch Lake with it's crystal clear blue waters, it was voted 2cd most scenic course only to Arcadia Bluffs by Traverse the magazine. Antrim is a parkland style course with very nice views of Lake Michigan, the back nine is more traditional Northern MI course through the trees and front nine is somewhat open to start you off, the course is always in great shape with some undulating greens that break to the Lake.

Recent Awards or What You Are Most Proud About The Course?
Sundance was voted b3rd best new courses in the country in 2006 and is 4.5 stars by golf Digest.

Torch was voted 2nd only to Arcadia Bluffs for most scenic course in Northern M.

Antrim Dells is rated 4 stars by Golf Digest

What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
Torch number 7 , a par 3 looking straight out over the beautiful Torch Lake.

Sundance number 18 with a peninsula green or number 9 a 600 yard par 5 with 13 bunkers is visually amazing.

Antrim Dells number 12 is a great par 5 with a creek crossing the fairway or number 13 a par 3 with a elevated tee box , great views

What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?

Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
The must have food at Agaming Golf Resort is many, the breakfast at Agaming is awesome, the omelets or the Scramble delight is a great way to start your day. For lunch the Reubens are fantastic with Boars head lunch meat.

Dinners are served at Antrim Dells and the prime Rib and Whitefish are the most popular. I love the Parmesan crusted whitefish, it is very hard not to order this amazing fresh fish every time. The Lake Trout and Perch are also right up there, any one that loves fish won't be disappointed by Chef Johns creations.

Who Holds Course Record and What Was Their Score?
I believe its is still Chick Harbert who is one of the old owners and a famed PGA golfer, he was a Ryder Cup Captain twice and won the PGA Championship in 1953 for Torch, Sundance and Antrim I am not sure but will go for it my next time out !!!
