north shore golf courses

The North Shore is home to four amazing public golf courses. Each of the north shore golf courses incorporates and highlights the native landscape.  All showcase vistas of Lake Superior, feature forest-lined fairways, and are designed to challenge the golfer. So while putting and chipping, you may just see a fox or a deer and even the occasional black bear or moose may play through. Courses open with seasonal adjustments in May and one of the best times to play is on an autumn day with the trees ablaze with color, Lake Superior sitting cobalt blue to the south, and the air crisp and fine.
