When he first saw the rolling hills and forests at Mistwood, course architect Jerry Matthews was enchanted by its suitability for a golf course. Matthews carved 27 championship holes into this variegated topography, divided among three nine-hole courses that combine for challenging 18-hole rounds or play singly for golfers who need to save time for savoring the taste of victory. Whether playing the red course, blue course, or white course, golfers send their balls soaring over bent-grass fairways and spinning over fast, well-bunkered greens, aiming carefully to avoid the smattering of lakes that await stray orbs.
Adjacent to the final fairway of the white course, an executive course named the Little Nine completes the fairway buffet at Mistwood Golf Course. Here, players hone their short-game skills and strive to take just three strokes at each hole, ideal for three-toed sloths with poor counting skills.
After swinging their way past open fields and dense thickets, players make their way to the clubhouse, where Bogey’s Snack Bar awaits downstairs, and upstairs, Sunset Bar & Grill serves whitefish and ribs as diners lounge on its deck and gaze out over the blue course and the verdant practice range.
Course Combinations at a Glance:
In 1964, the trio of Joe Balulis, Bill Kater, and Seth Bidwell hung a shingle that read "Marquette Trails Golf Club" amid the dense forest of Manistee National Forest. The nine-hole golf course was their verdant brainchild and source of nutritional fairway grass, but after three years of joint ownership the triumvirate elected to go their separate ways, leaving the family of Joe Balulis to take over. Joe’s sons would go on to oversee the addition of a back nine that opened in 1985, bringing the overall length to 5,847 yards and par to 70. In 1993 a new clubhouse and a restaurant (The View) opened. Today, the Balulis family invites players to venture through the forest groves with clubs in hand, pursuing their golf balls until they’re in the cups and safe from the course's forest-dwelling co-founders.
A lot of things about Fiddlers Green are unexpected. For one, the pub's locale? "The Jewel in the Crown" of Door County, Washington Island, in Lake Michigan. The building is historic and the content is unique. But to locals and in-the-know tourists, Fiddlers Green is a good spot to unwind with a pint of Guinness, IPA, or a glass of fine wine. The menu is diverse, including paninis, Sushi Night, My Big Delicious Greek Night, hummus & hot pretzels, and Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Wellington. The bar's roadside character, next to the Farm Museum and down the road from Schoolhouse Beach, is enhanced by the strains of live music that escape from its doors on any given evening. Jazz, folk artists, and poets frequent the establishment several nights a week, while periodic jam sessions (Ceili) break out at this authentic Irish pub ?invite guests to drink some beer and play some tunes on their guitars, banjos, or fiddles.
