Betsie Valley is one of two 18-hole championship golf courses at Crystal Mountain Resort in Thompsonville, Mich. When the second course, Mountain Ridge, was added, Betsie Valley also underwent a major renovation. The course retained its original playability but it was made more challenging to appeal to more advanced golfers. Both golf courses are spread across rolling hills covered with mature pine forests, encapsulating the best that northern Michigan golf has to offer. Although they share the same scenic landscape, the courses have a unique character as well as a different set of challenges. Betsie Valley's tight layout and small greens make it a true shot-maker's course. Many of the greens are also severely sloped, making them even more challenging. One of the toughest holes is the par-5 10th, which doglegs right and plays longer than the scorecard indicates.
