Crystal Mountain Resort boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses, Mountain Ridge and Betsie Valley. Both are classic examples of northern Michigan golf, sprawling across hills and valleys and through mature forests, but they each offer a different set of challenges. Mountain Ridge was added after the original Betsie Valley Course. Carved from a mountainside, the golf course covers a range of elevation changes from subtle to dramatic. The undulating terrain provides not only several challenges, but also scenic respite with panoramic views of the surroundings forests and hills. The layout is tucked away amongst towering pines, which frame the fairways and greens. Accuracy is immensely important on this course, as is a good strategy for each hole. The occasional water hazard comes into play and there are strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout.
