Arthur Hills: Designed by its namesake, the Arthur Hills course has some of the most spectacular holes in all Northern Michigan. Cut through the forest with large expanses of sandy wasteland and some amazing views of the Michigan wilderness, it’s one of BOYNE Golf’s finest.
Donald Ross Memorial: The Donald Ross Memorial is a collection of some of the course designer’s finest work including the likes of Pinehurst No.2, Oak Hill and Seminole. In a single round, you will experience holes that have played their part in three Ryder Cups, eight U.S. Amateurs, 11 PGA Championships, and 14 U.S. Opens.
The Heather: Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., The Heather was BOYNE’s first course and it has truly earned its reputation as one of the finest championship courses in the country. Rolling tree-lined fairways, sculpted bunkering, blueberry bogs and penalizing wetlands are the marks of this layout.
The Moor: The Moor was the second course built at Boyne Highlands and represents a very playable resort course. Marshland, water hazards and several dogleg holes all play their part on what is often considered the member’s favorite.
