Masters Week Inspires Golfers to Think Mecca

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 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 stretch as wide as the sky. The Gaylord Golf Mecca, of course.

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 are opening as spring warms things up. Indian River Golf Club opened last week, and this Friday Lakes of the North Golf Course and the Classic course at Otsego Resort, one of the resort’s two courses, are opening. More of the world-class courses of the Mecca will be following in the coming April days.  

In addition, in a masterful way, our 21 lodging partners want to make room and book rooms for all who want to play. Tru by Hilton recently opened a new hotel on West Main Street that features an indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center and other amenities for Mecca golfers.

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.

Our comfortable partner lodging options stretch across the spectrum of price point, comfort, and luxury, from resort cabins to fabulous hotel rooms and more.

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.
