About The Loon Golf Resort

One of the Gaylord Golf Mecca’s most popular golfing layouts is The Loon Golf Resort, which is one of the premier courses for players in northern Michigan. The Loon appeals to all levels of golfers with multiple tee areas and well-designed bunkers. Since it’s opening in 1994 this golf course has been what “Friendly Championship Golf” is all about. The Loon has generous landing areas, gently rolling fairways, large greens, and some of the most scenic views Northern Michigan has to offer.

The Loon, which is under new management, has made a substantial multi-million dollar investment into the property with expansion and renovations to both the resort and golf course. These new improvements include the development of new high-end lodging facilities, which is sure to attract golfing groups looking for generous accommodations and within walking distance of the first tee. These new town homes will offer spacious four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and all modern amenities. In addition, The Loon has also made significant renovations to its clubhouse, which includes upgrades to the resorts restaurant, as well as a massive deck expansion outside around the exterior allowing more views of what many think is one of the best finishing holes in northern Michigan.
