In 2017, the historic club turned back the clock and restored the popular course bringing back many of the strategies that Watson originally intended. Belvedere offers a golf experience that is different from today’s modern golf courses. A “Minimalist” design is the best way to describe the 18-hole private golf club. This is pure golf as it was meant to be played. If you haven’t experienced this wonderful historic course, make sure to add this on your next trip to northern Michigan.

Charlevoix Country Club
Charlevoix Country Club (now part of A-Ga-Ming Resort) is a four-star (Golf Digest Places to Play) Jerry Matthews design that affords golfers with an opportunity to play a public course that boasts private club conditioning and service. Water dominates the landscape here, as many holes weave their way across and around significant lakes, ponds, and natural areas. There are just a couple of forced carries, however, as these hazards mostly lie on the perimeter, helping to define the beautifully manicured bent grass fairways.
The clubhouse is upscale all the way and features a pro shop plus a nicely appointed restaurant and lounge that serves Sunday Brunch as well as lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Members have considerable other benefits including a private lounge and locker rooms. A grass range is on the property, and a large practice green is situated near the clubhouse. The course is well marked, with 150-yard stakes doubling as directional devices, sprinkler heads measured to the center of the green, and 100, 150, and 200-yard blocks posted in the fairways.
