Awarded Editor’s Choice “Best Grand & Boutique Golf Hotels” by Golf Digest, The Jewel is one of the most unique courses in Northern Michigan and the United States. As the only course in the country with horse-drawn carriage rides between nines, it truly is 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, a leisurely 15-minute, 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 the entire state of Michigan.
