The Masterpiece Course __________
The Masterpiece Course was Robert Trent Jones, Sr.'s final design in Michigan and is truly a masterpiece. In his own words, Jones claimed it his crowning glory. The course is located at the headwaters of the Pigeon River and takes full advantage of natural valleys, ravines and broad plains. The signature sixth hole features a 120' vertical drop and a panoramic view of the Pigeon River Valley.
The Premier Course __________
The Premier Course is the only course in Michigan designed by famed architect Tom Fazio, making the most of the rolling terrain and striking the perfect balance between challenge and forgiveness. When asked to name a signature hole, Fazio replied, "All of them!"
The Signature Course __________
The Signature Course unfolds into high upland and features undulating greens and wide, forgiving fairways. Signature has been rated a Top 50 Course for Women.
The Tradition Course __________
The Tradition Course is Rick Smith's walking course which pays homage to golf's origin, and is well named as it features traditional wooden pins and pennant flags. The links-style layout takes advantage of high ridges and hilltops, providing some sloping while still being walkable. Holes one through nine wrap back around to the starter house, allowing for nine-hole play.
The Par 3 Course __________
The Par 3 Course is a 9-hole layout that compliments Treetops four championship courses. Rick Smith's par three layout has received national recognition since it opened, consistently ranked as the #1 par three course in America.

As a 9-hole Par 3 course only, Threetops at Treetops Resort was truly a challenging and fun course to play. Every golfer has to work on their short game but this challenges even the best golfers.

Short trip and had opportunity to play 3Tops, Fazio Premiere, and Smith Signature. All 3 excellent courses. Went on a Fall special so price was more than fair. Pace of play on 2 regulation courses was 5 hours....about 30 minutes to slow for our 4some. Discounted price meant bottom of the barrel rooms. They were clean but old and very simple. Could use some moderning up of amenities, but we were there for the golf so no big deal Food at bar and restaurant was very average. Breakfast was excellent, but bar food was average at best. Dinner was slightly better. Would have expected better food, but I have had worse at resorts. The most important thing is no compromises on the courses other than bunkers were not in good shape. Greens, fairways, and overall course conditions were phenomenal though. Overall: COURSES: 9 OUT OF 10 ROOMS: 6 OUT OF 10 FOOD: 7 OUT OF 10
