Recently awarded Editor’s Choice Best Grand Golf Hotel by Golf Digest, The Jewel is one of the most unique courses in Northern Michigan and the United States. With its unparalleled scenic beauty, lush landscaping, meticulously manicured tees, fairways and greens it is sure to be a Grand golf experience.
The Grand nine located across from the hotel with views of the Straits of Mackinac was built in 1901 and redesigned in 1987 by golf course architect Jerry Matthews. In 1994, he also designed the Woods nine located in the interior of Mackinac Island with views of the Mackinac Bridge and the Upper Peninsula. Together they comprise The Jewel, the resort’s 18-hole golf course, separated by a mile and a half and the only course with horse-drawn carriage rides between nines in the country. The leisurely 15-minute ride includes parts of the island unseen by many visitors.
Time to Warm Up!
In addition to the two practice putting areas, both the Grand nine and Woods nine of The Jewel have a driving range net that can accommodate up to four players at a time to help warm up before your round and refine your skills. Use of the driving range net is included when paying greens fees to play The Jewel.
The driving range net is also available for $5.00 per bag. Each bag includes approximately 50 golf balls.
