Boyne Highlands - Heather Course

  27 Reviews

The Heather is a classic Robert Trent Jones Sr. course. The course is set at the base of ski slopes and is framed by mountains and is now my 5th favorite mountain course all the time. While the majority of the year this course is a ski track it becomes a golfers getaway in the summer months. While relaxing The Heather is moderately challenging as it weaves through tall mature trees and the majority of the holes are doglegs that require proper distance and position to advance to the green. The course has minor elevation changes but the elevated greens are usually guarded by large and deep bunkers. Note to golfers coming from warmer summer climates, bring some light colder weather gear, The Boyne Courses can start in the 40s before they reach the perfect 70s as it did with my morning tee time. The fairways while tree-lined were generous in size and good for a wide range of golfers, especially from the correct tee box.

They would play this course again.

Course was in fantastic shape. We played right before a storm rolled through and flew around in around 3 hours. The finishing hole is perfection. Knowing where the mountain is certainly helps when trying to read putts. Highly recommend playing this course!

This is the first Boyne course I've played, and I was very impressed. Right off the bat, this was a fun round because we were able to use golfboards to carve our way through the course.

With the exception of the very shaded second hole, the course was in excellent condition. The greens are well guarded and I ended up in quite a few green-side bunkers. Second shot accuracy is very important on this winding track. The layout is pretty memorable and the greens roll very true.

Swing by Boyne Highlands and add a very enjoyable round to your northern Michigan golf experience. I had a blast playing at the Heather (I even parred the famous long par 4 18th!) I can see why this track ranks so highly in Michigan year after year.
