Masters Week Inspires Golfers to Think Gaylord Golf Mecca

By Greg Johnson

The green expanse was alluring, the golf inspiring, the excitement palpable and that was via a screen. Imagine the real thing.

Another Masters Tournament week is in the books and that is when the game of golf, especially to those of us in Michigan and the Midwest, beckons once again. We get the clubs out of storage while remembering the wonderful display of golf we witnessed via television on the prestigious green expanse at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. We get the itch to play, and we know where we can go to enjoy golf on greens and fairways that spread as wide as the sky. The Gaylord Golf Mecca, of course.

It’s the real thing. You don’t have to imagine it or view from afar.

From one Mecca to another we present bright green on green, towering pines, blooming flowers, stunning scenery, chirping birds and golf action courtesy of the properties and partners of the Gaylord Golf Mecca. The 17 golf courses of the Gaylord Golf Mecca will be opening as spring warms things up, and soon golfers will enjoy long summer days of play.

In addition, in a masterful way, our 21 lodging partners want to make room and book rooms for all who want to play. Our abundant lodging options stretch across the spectrum of price point, comfort and luxury, from resorts and cabins to fabulous hotel rooms and vacation homes.

Our quantity and quality of world-class golf includes traditional classic parkland golf, expansive modern resort golf, pure Northern Michigan terrain golf and award-winning architecture by the greats of the game like Robert Trent Jones and Tom Fazio.

You can call 800-345-8621, visit or reach out directly to our member properties: Lakes of the North, Treetops Resort, Otsego Resort, The Natural, The Pines at Michaywe, Indian River Golf Club, Garland Lodge & Golf Resort, Gaylord Golf Club, and Black Lake Golf Club.

Act on that televised inspiration called the Masters and visit the Mecca. It’s the real thing.
