Golf Courses- Marquette Area

We have given a description of each and their websites. Please scroll down for additional information.

Marquette Golf Club (Greywalls Course)

The dramatic Greywalls golf course in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan had a banner year in 2005, as it received several highly acclaimed national awards. Greywalls received national awards from Golf Magazine, Golf Digest, and most recently, Travel + Leisure Golf and Golfweek, which recently honored the layout as one of the best in Michigan.

Michigan's Upper Peninsula offers an all-too-brief season, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality, especially with this year's addition of the Greywalls course at Marquette Golf Club. Architect Mike DeVries grabbed this rugged site by the shoulders and shook loose 18 distinctive challenges in a rough-and-tumble layout.

DeVries used the exposed granite here in every way possible--as jagged hazards alongside the fairways and as aiming points behind greens. Views of Lake Superior greet you on the first tee, and everything that follows--from the approach on the 579-yard par-5 first to the forested, downhill, saddle-shaped 18th fairway--lives up to the lake's name. Potential disasters loom throughout the round. DeVries accomplished a minor miracle in routing such a variety of holes on such a difficult site, and you'll tip your hard hat to his labors.


"On my exclusive Yikes-meter scale of 1 to 10, this course starts as an 11. Not that the course stays perched on the edge of doom. Nothing this exhilarating can be sustained. Greywalls, a new course on a stunning site in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, starts off like a mythic medieval quest. The golfer might feel like he is battling fire-breathing dragons, armored knights and monsters from the netherworld along the way."

Red Fox Run

Red Fox Run has been designed to implement all aspects of the game. The holes carefully blend rolling fairways, rich woodlands, and scenic wildlife. It is a challenging but playable course, and offers a panoramic golf experience. We have one of the premier golf courses in the Upper Peninsula and are dedicated to providing a level of service that will ensure an enjoyable experience.

Course Information
Front 9
The Red Fox Run Golf Course offers two distinct designs. The front nine features generous landing areas and well-bunkered greens. Your long irons will need to be sharp for the three challenging par 3 hole included in this nine.

Back 9
The back nine is set up for the shot maker. Narrow, tree-lined fairways put a premium on driving accuracy. New tee boxes have been constructed on holes 11 and 15, adding substantial length to the demanding par 3 eleventh hole and the once drivable par 4 fifteenth hole. The par 4 seventeenth hole and par 5 eighteenth hole are two of the most challenging finishing holes that you will play in the entire Upper Peninsula. Both holes feature severe topographical changes.
