Belvedere Golf Club Highlights

The Belvedere Golf Club’s history began in 1925 when members of the Belvedere Club decided their existing social club needed a golf course. The membership hired renowned Scottish architect William Watson to design a golf course “worthy of national reputation” and Watson delivered.

The Minikahda Club & Interlachen in Minneapolis, Harding Park and both Olympic Club layouts in San Francisco, Salt Lake Country Club, Olympia Fields, San Diego Country Club, Annandale Golf Club, and over 115 more courses were all on Watson's resume. Watson built Belvedere Golf Club with five teams of horses and 150 men, routing the course across a pair of valleys bisected by Marion Center Rd. just south of Charlevoix.

Belvedere isn't very long by today's standards (6,906 yards), but the challenge is in the short game around the dynamic green complexes, which contain subtle undulations, ridges, and slopes that fall out to chipping areas. The course, which was opened in 1927, quickly established itself as a prestigious tournament venue, most notably as a 40-time home of the Michigan Amateur. Belvedere has hosted the Amateur for 26 years, starting in 1963.

The Amateur returned to Belvedere in 2003, along with dozens of prior champions and finalists, thanks to the Golf Association of Michigan (GAM). It returned for the 40th time in 2014, and it will return again in 2025 to commemorate its 100th anniversary.

Belvedere has hosted a number of professional tournaments in addition to its many Michigan Amateur Championships. Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Leo Diegel, Alex Smith, Macdonald Smith, Jock Hutchison, Tommy Armour, Denny Shute, Jim Barnes, Alex Ross, Emmet French, Horton Smith, and many others all competed at Belvedere.

Sam Snead, Julius Boros, Ken Venturi, and Loren Roberts have all visited the club in recent years to learn more about its history. Tom Watson, a five-time Open Champion, and Hall of Fame golfer spent his boyhood and college summers in Northern Michigan, and Belvedere became his summer home course. Watson still considers Belvedere to be one of his top three favorite courses in the US, trailing only Augusta National and Pebble Beach. Watson is an honorary member of Belvedere Golf Club, which he still attends on occasion.
