Buddies Golf at Treetops Resort Like Visiting Easy Street

By Greg Johnson

Attention traveling golfers, the Gaylord Golf Mecca has an “Easy Street” stop for you and your friends.

Treetops Resort is the place for golf of your choosing, but especially perfect for groups, as in buddy trips, gal pal trips, reunions, club getaways or any type of group that can be created.

Instead of wracking the old brain though, go with a visit to Easy Street. Let the welcoming folks at Treetops Resort manage the planning and thinking for you.

Treetops Resort, in the heart of the Gaylord Golf Mecca of northern Michigan, is home to 81 holes of exciting and challenging championship golf. Well, 90 if you count the nine-hole putting course called The Himalayas.

It’s easy to pick golf at Treetops because you cannot go wrong with any of the choices, including Masterpiece by Robert Trent Jones; Premier by Tom Fazio; Signature by Rick Smith; Tradition by Rick Smith; and Threetops by Rick Smith.

Masterpiece opened in 1987 and Golf Digest named it the No. 2 best new course in the country out of the gate.

The Premier is the only Michigan course designed by Fazio, whose award-winning layouts are among the best and most popular in the world.

Signature is regarded as one of the best golf courses in the Midwest and is often cited by Treetops’ regulars as the top overall challenge of the bunch.

The Tradition, recently updated, is what they call player-friendly, which means a little less elevation change and bigger fairways. It’s fun.

And, Threetops has been called the best par 3 in the United States, and that is another no-brainer.

Over 1,500 acres of green, rough and bunkers await groups at Treetops Resort. Along with great golf, the rooms and other accommodations have been remodeled, refurbished and in some cases are even brand spanking new.

And, settling final wagers on The Himalayas and sipping a cold brew is encouraged.

Treetops is truly the Midwest’s “Must Play” resort and arguably the best collection of golf anywhere in the country.

Guests can also experience top-notch golf instruction, a spectacular spa, perfect places for meetings and conventions and even a fairytale wedding. Oh, and there are pig roast events, great dining, beer and bourbon tasting, all types of golf events and more.

Treetops is conveniently located straight up I-75 or U.S. 131. It’s about three hours from Detroit or the Grand Rapids area, and only an hour from Traverse City, all cities with great air service serving Michigan, too.

Plan your trip now at, or call 888-873-3867 and let experienced group folks help you reserve an excellent group trip to Easy Street.
