Bahle Farms Golf Course Homes for Sale

Just minutes from downtown Traverse City in lovely Leelanau County.

Majestic golf course with unspoiled views of Leelanau County that weave past working cherry orchards.

Bahle Farms is one of Northern Michigan's best public golf resorts, with a stunning landscape.
Rolling hills, vistas of Suttons Bay, beautiful landscape, and superb greens combine for a memorable golf day, and it's easy to see why this is Leelanau and Grand Traverse County's best course.

The views of Suttons Bay and Lake Michigan from Bahle Farms are breathtaking. While the varied topography, which includes hills, woods, lakes, and strategically positioned bunkers, makes for an unforgettable round of golf. The entrance and two holes (#13 and #16) are set among working cherry orchards, which are ripe for the picking in July as golfers plot their approach to the green. The Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program has certified this course.

Bahle Farms Golf Course Community Highlights

More than 200 acres of hills, cherry trees, and Northern Michigan landscape make up the course, which seeks to create a demanding golf experience that symbolizes Northern Michigan's natural, outdoorsy lifestyle.

Hole 1
For the best angle into the green, keep your tee shot to the left side of the fairway. When putting back to front, the green is faster than it appears.

Hole 2
Longer hitters may prefer to approach this green in two shots. A miss to the right side of the green is a disaster waiting to happen. This is a difficult green with a right-to-left slope..

Hole 3
Off the tee, you might not need a driver. A 225-yard tee shot along the left side will leave you with a short iron into the green. Going up the slope, add at least one more club.

Hole 4 
Shots that are hit to the left side of the green frequently feed to the right as they travel down the slope.

Hole 5
To avoid running through the trees on the right, large hitters must keep a tee shot of 235 yards or more down the left side of the fairway. Lay-up shots must stay clear of the valley that runs in front of the green.

Hole 6
This is a challenging green to putt on. Shots to the left of the green will bounce off the trees and into the trees.

Hole 7 
The three-tiered green on this hole makes your approach shot crucial. Long left and right is a recipe for disaster. The only way out is to keep your distance.

Hole 8
Down the hill, there's a wonderful driving hole. To the right of the fairway is where you'll find out of bounds. The best approach to the hole is from the fairway's left side.

Hole 9
The longer the hole plays, the further this pin is to the right. This hole usually requires one club less for downhill play, but keep an eye out for the wind, which can be difficult to detect from the tee.

Hole 10
Down this straightaway par 4, it's all about the bombs. For the optimal approach, keep your tee shot to the right side of the fairway. For the approach shot up the slope, add a club. From back to front, green moves quite quickly.

Hole 11
From the tee box, this hole offers a spectacular perspective. Depending on the wind direction, use two clubs less for the downhill.

Hole 12
A tee shot down the left side of the fairway creates a strong angle for the second shot around the dogleg right. The green on this hole is multi-tiered and going over the back of it provides for a difficult pitch or chip back onto the green.

Hole 13
A lengthy par four with a reachable green. Off the tee, stay away from the fairway bunker.

Hole 14
Make sure you don't use too much club off the tee. From the blue tee, anything above 235 yards will go through the fairway and into the ravine. Near the green, your approach shot should bounce from left to right.

Hole 15
To the right of the tee boxes, there is a lovely view of Suttons Bay. This hole can be difficult to navigate in the wind.

Hole 16
Par 5 dogleg right with a risk-reward strategy. Long hitters have the ability to cut the corner. If you do this, keep your tee shot to the right of the fairway bunker. Any shots hit from the blue tee boxes that are more than 235 yards straight down the middle will go into the trees. This green has a strong texture.

Hole 17
Par 4: Risk vs. Reward A long iron or fairway wood on the right side of the fairway is a safe bet. From right to left, this fairway is steeply sloping.

Hole 18
From the blue tee, a 225-yard tee shot just left of the fairway bunker puts up an uphill approach to the green. For the uphill approach, add an extra club.
