Get Driving Directions:

Rolling through 400 pristine acres of north woods, the Black Forest course has been garnering awards since its opening in 1992.  Designed by internationally renowned architect Tom Doak, Black Forest features beautiful terrain, spectacular bunkering and diabolical greens. Its natural beauty combined with outstanding conditioning  make Black Forest a world-class golf experience.  From the black tees, Black Forest is one of Michigan’s toughest courses, yet with 5 sets of tee markers, it is playable by all levels of golfers.

Consistently ranked as one of the top public courses in Michigan, Black Forest is a “must play” on any trip to Gaylord. 

Our Restaurant
