Grand Traverse Resort & Spa is “Michigan’s Premier Resort Experience” and one of the Midwest’s finest full-service, year-round destination and conference resorts.

The 900-acre Grand Traverse is situated in the northwest corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula along the shores of Lake Michigan’s East Grand Traverse Bay. Just six miles northeast of Traverse City, Michigan, it is a ten-minute drive from Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport (TVC).

The Resort’s nearly 600 rooms, suites and condominiums, 86,500 square-feet of versatile, dedicated meeting space, distinctive dining venues, shopping complex, full-service spa, and championship golf, attract individuals, families, plus corporate, association and other groups for four full seasons of non-stop activity.

Northern Michigan is America’s Summer Golf Capital® and Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is a Northwoods haven for golfers. The Resort has three distinguished 18-hole championship courses:

The Bear
This Jack Nicklaus signature course is a distinguished par-72 design. It officially opened on June 17, 1985. It was the first Jack Nicklaus signature course in Michigan and was home to the Michigan Open from 1985 through 2008.

The Wolverine
This Gary Player par-72 signature course officially opened on June 8, 1999. It is designed to accommodate players of all levels. It is Player’s first signature course in the state and hosted preliminary rounds of the Michigan Open.

Spruce Run
The Resort’s original course redesigned by William Newcomb in 1979. Many changes have been made to Spruce Run through the years. Today it is an 18-hole, par-70, championship course winding along the gently rolling hills overlooking East Grand Traverse Bay. The Michigan Open was played on Spruce Run – then known as The Resort course – from 1981 through 1984.

The Resort takes pride in using the freshest local culinary ingredients available. From contemporary American favorites such as pasta, steaks, and pizza to poolside sandwiches, a variety of culinary delights are offered at three restaurants and several smaller food and beverage outlets.
