From Forest to Shore

    Open for the Season

Nestled into the hardwood forest that hugs the Lake Michigan shore, The Preserve is a members' favorite that's nothing short of a sanctuary. Designed by Arthur Hills, the course winds its way through a classic northern Michigan landscape, taking players through wildflowers, lush grass, and native wetlands filled with an abundance of wildlife. The sounds of breaking waves are always within an earshot, and the course finishes in dramatic fashion with a spectacular par-3 situated right on the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Taking its lead from the dramatic courses that hug Ireland's North Atlantic coastline, The Links is situated on the beautiful Lake Michigan shore, with miles of uninterrupted views up and down the lakefront. Accented by towering bluffs and windblown dunes, The Links 9 demonstrates Arthur Hills design at its finest, combining the course's unique topography with the native environment to achieve golf's greatest promise as both a sport - and a lifestyle.

Hole 1

Par 4 • 391 yards • A very good opening hole that begins to introduce you to the hardwoods at Bay Harbor. A well positioned tee shot will avoid the fairway bunkers and leave a short iron approach to a green that is guarded on the front right by a bunker. If in doubt here, play to the front left approach, which is a fair place to get it up and down.
