Beaver Creek Resort has a central location that is only five miles southwest of downtown Gaylord and only an hour to Mackinaw City, Traverse City, and Harbor Springs. Beaver Creek's 18-hole golf course, the Natural, is located on the west side of Otsego Lake. It was designed to be one of the most scenic sites in northern Michigan, incorporating the beautiful natural wetlands as well as the thousands of oak, maple, birch, and pine trees. The golf course is as challenging as it is scenic with plenty of blind shots, lay-ups, and tricky doglegs. The final hole is one of the most memorable. This lengthy par 4 is a slight dogleg left that plays downhill to a fairway landing area defined by sand and trees. You'll face an intimidating carry over wetlands in order to reach the long, narrow green that is backed by three sand bunkers and towering pine trees.
