About Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course

Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Arcadia, Michigan.

Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course was designed by Warren Henderson & Rick Smith and opened in 1999.

Arcadia Bluffs is a world class links golf course. The course is set on a bluff, offering breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. The sculptured fairways offer generous landing areas, although some can be rather tight and demanding. Large, well-undulating greens, playing very fast, increase the level of difficulty.

This is a daily-fee golf club, open to the public seven days a week, from mid-April to mid-November each year, weather permitting. The course is located in Arcadia, Michigan. There are no private memberships, and every design aspect of the facility fosters enjoyment for guests of all golfing abilities. In addition to the premier layout, guests can enjoy a full practice range and separate short-game facility. GPS-equipped golf cars are available, or you may take advantage of the caddy program.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7300 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5139 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-5 that plays to 633 yards. This is also the signature hole. This sweeping dog-leg left features a narrow lay-up area, with the green perched 200 feet above Lake Michigan. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 176 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 8, a 486 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest at Arcadia Bluffs is hole is # 11, a 519 yard par-5.

This is golf destination site. There is a "wow" factor when you arrive and when you depart. The hotel staff is attentive to your needs throughout your stay. The lodge rooms are comfortable, clean and well designed. I am looking forward to the addition of a spa for another after golf experience.

Only issue with facility was the way they treated players on the course - having to poor beer into a plastic cup, not having a 6 pack price. I realize it's a top end course - but between a 4some it's not too much to have a 6 pack of beer for a round. They treated us like little kids claiming it was to keep the course free of cans (litter) - so what did they think the plastic cups would do? The scenery was fantastic and the evening sun on the course made the spectacular views jump out as we often paused to turn back after our shots. I will play it again in a few years.
