The Nightmare

The NightmarePLEASE, don’t let the name fool you.  The Nightmare Golf Course features some of the largest fairways you will find on a golf course. Coupled with large undulating greens makes this course a DREAM for any golfer.  The natural beauty of the rolling northern Michigan terrain along with a well manicured course from tee to green. Puts this area on the map of Michigan’s “must play” golf destinations.

The Nightmare, opened in August 2003, and is the sister course to The Dream. Both courses are located just minutes off of Interstate 75. Just two hours from the Detroit suburbs gives you the ability to tee off in the morning and be home before dinner, or play 36 and arrive home in the evening. Stay with us for that getaway golf weekend, or stop in for a round before you head up north, or get that last round in before you head home.

Signature features include generously sculpted bent grass fairways and huge, mildly undulating greens that roll quick and true, and are an absolute joy to putt on.

The Nightmare Hole #5 GreenThe sand bunkers located strategically near the landing areas off the tee and greenside, are of similar high quality.  The diagrams on each scorecard provide hole layouts plus yardage measured to and over the bunkers and the 5 water hazards that come into play.

On the course golfers will have an easy time locating the 25-yard markers that are visible on the fairways from 200 to 100 yards in (from 250 on par fives).  Hole locations are determined by color coded flags that indicate Red (front), White (middle) and Yellow (back) pin placements.  Four sets of tees are currently featured, measuring 7020, 6527, 6011 and 5168.
