Golf Course Information
Crystal Mountain is northern Michigan's golf destination with two distinctively different, yet equally mesmerizing golf course. Both the Mountain Ridge and Betsie Valley golf courses have received a prestigious 4-Star rating from Golf Digest magazine and are sure to challenge your skills at every turn. A short drive from Traverse City, both of Crystal Mountain's championship golf courses will beckon your play again and again.
Set amidst the soaring pines of northern Michigan, the Mountain Ridge course offers 18 holes of championship golf. Carved from densely forested highlands, Mountain Ridge climbs the mountain to peak of 200 feet. You'll enjoy panoramic vistas from tee to green as you play from the heights of the mountain. Its fairways wind through stately forests and ascend to high elevations, providing a true northern Michigan golf experience.
Having recently benefitted from a $1 million renovation, our Betsie Valley Golf Course is ready to challenge the ability of any golfer. Sparkling creeks and tranquil ponds come into play on nine of the 18 holes. The tree-lined fairways are flanked with towering pines accented by wildflowers, creating picturesque play and jaw-dropping views. Betsie Valley is a great walking course, but may also be enjoyed from the comfort of a golf cart.
