Cattails Golf Club's 18-hole course pits players against the indigenous hardwood forests and wetlands that occupy its 160-acre parcel of terrain. Opened for play in 1991, the course sprawls across rollicking land that once served as horse farm. Designer John R. William routed his vision through creeks and wetlands on the front nine and dense hardwood forest on the back, forcing golfers to adapt to the change in surroundings. The result is a tough but fair trial of cuts, putts, and strategy—one that's hosted such events as the The Michigan Amateur Qualifier and tournaments on the LPGA Futures Tour.

At Rolling Meadows Country Club, golfers find an 18-hole layout with a rustic feel etched into the countryside, where they won't be distracted by housing developments or cranes erecting yet another 100-story barn. This untouched seclusion has been the family-owned course's forte since its grand opening in 1978, followed only by its wide fairway and suitability for players of every persuasion. Though the loop stretches to 6,474 yards from the back tees, players can also choose from two other sets to adjust that number downward.

Whitmore Lake Golf Links is like two courses in one. On the front nine, golfers meander across scenic uplands, tackling hills and large, flat greens. In the second half, however, the landscape shifts to mostly wetlands, setting the back nine among boardwalks and teeing decks in the middle of the marsh. All told, wetlands cover much of the facility's 254 acres of property, where wildlife abounds as players conquer the par 71 course's wild challenges.

To prepare for the idyllic gauntlet, visitors can make a day of it at the onsite restaurant or the club's practice facilities. At both the driving range and a short-game area, golfers can perfect every aspect of their game, from their swing mechanics to the flute melodies they use to coax timid clubs from the bag.
