Sawgrass replica at Eagles EyeHockeytown downtown Detriot Dunes at Harbor Shore
Michigan home of the Motown Sound, The Motor City, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and oh yes over 1,000 golf courses!!
Sitting down with the Michigan tourist board the discussion was focused on how we could replicate a typical golf tour from Britain and Ireland on a fact finding trip to Michigan, all were agreed the focus should be on golf.
Golfers in the UK find themselves in a difficult position at the moment, with the strength of the Euro against the Pound, the annual pilgrimage to Portugal, Spain and recently Turkey has started to become very expensive. With the strength of the Pound against the Dollar, itís a great chance for UK golfers to take a look again across the Atlantic to golf in America.
There are plenty of flights between the UK and Detroit or Chicago (which is only a 90 minute drive to Northern Michigan). With over 1,000 tracks to choose from, many of which appear in Golf Digests Top 100 you will be in for a real treat. It offers a comfortable summer climate to play in, add to that the breath taking scenery, especially in the UP (Upper Peninsula) region, the great Lakes, a warm friendly welcoming people and there is not much you will not enjoy on your visit to Michigan.
After lots of email exchanges I was on my way to the Motor city to play 14 courses in 12 days!! We could have included some fishing, there is plenty to be had or spaís, there are some fantastic resorts for you to enjoy, but for me golf, golf and more golf, I was very happy with that itinerary.
