Spring to Action

Gather the group, buddies, gal pals, gang, whatever the description and get that golf trip planned.

We have the perfect destination for you. It’s the Gaylord Golf Mecca, featuring 17 world class golf courses, 21 great lodging partners and golf trip packages at every price point, and fun is guaranteed.

The Mecca courses are opening as the spring flowers emerge, and they are in perfect shape. Groups of golfers are already staking claim and arriving, so don’t dawdle any longer.

We have more than enough golf for everybody, and room, too.

We are America’s Summer Golf Mecca, a 34-year-old cooperative marketing effort for an incredible collection of golf. Make it your group’s tradition to visit any one or all of the world-class courses created by many of the game’s greatest golf course design architects. Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones Sr., Rees Jones, Rick Smith, Jerry Matthews, and the legendary Wilfrid E. Reid among others have carved their inspirational artistry through our Northern Michigan woods.

With the many distinct dining and lodging opportunities that pair with the wonderfully diverse and delightful golf experiences, golf publications and bloggers consistently rank Gaylord resorts among the top stay-and-play destinations in the country.

A round of golf in the Mecca is a truly memorable touch of the beating heart of Northern Michigan golf. The longest of summer days, uncluttered greens and pristine natural beauty carved by the glaciers long ago form a foursome of sorts with each golfer.

Skill levels of the player are easily accommodated as well. The Mecca collection was designed to challenge champions as well as appeal to those who just want to play for the day in a beautiful place.
