Golf on The Jewel

Something different, something unique, The Jewel is the only golf course in the United States with horse-drawn carriage rides between nines. Add in a fantastic layout and beautiful location, and no wonder it’s been awarded Editor’s Choice “Best Grand & Boutique Golf Hotels” by Golf Digest.

Please note: The Jewel is a public course open to guests and non-guests alike. The course is closed during the off-season.

The Jewel Golf Course

The Grand nine, located across from Grand 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 and showcasing 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, a leisurely, horse-drawn carriage ride between the nines includes parts of the Island unseen by many visitors.

A Jewel of a Hole
The Jewel’s par-3 7th hole combines difficulty with breathtaking Pure Michigan scenery. Perhaps that’s why it’s ranked one of the top 18 holes in Michigan.
