Golf Course Information
Designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills, the Thoroughbred Golf Club is known for its beauty and solitude. With bent grass tees, fairways and greens, the Thoroughbred offers 18 championship holes that sprawl over 240 acres of rolling Michigan woodside. It wraps around the Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark and is the only golf course in Michigan where horseback riders have the right of way on cart paths.
The strategic layout is challenging but rewarding to golfers of all abilities. Play it yourself and see why you'll want to come back again and again.
