About Mackinaw Club Golf Course
The Mackinaw Club opened in 1997 and was professionally designed for playability by Jerry Matthews. The beautiful northern Michigan forest and meadow setting for the course has only been enhanced as it has recently been refurbished and restored by its new owners, Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping.
At the Mackinaw Club Golf Course you will find a blend of a traditional forest course with several meandering meadow style fairways, all covering 310 acres of a gently sloping landscape. This professionally designed course is enjoyable and challenging to players at all levels.

Golf Course History
Historically, the land where the course is located has been used as an emergency landing strip for B-25's. The B-25's were using Round Island in Lake Huron for bombing runs in W.W.II. Mackinaw City operated a small airport on the site that later became a snowmobile club.
As a community snowmobile club the site eventually hosted popular races. Most recently, just before it was discovered by the golf course's builders, Mary, Jim and Dick Carter, it hosted a kite festival. The Carters had built golf courses with many of the best known golf architects for years (having worked with architects Jerry Matthews, Bruce Matthews and Ron Otto on courses that include The Emerald, The Pohlcat, St. Ives, Michawye, The Jewel, Timber Ridge, Railside, Wallinwood, Lake View Hills, Birchwood, Treetops, Hill's Heart of the Lakes and Eagle Glen).
We played this course 3 times during our stay last year. one of the best kept secrets in Northern Michigan. Very reasonable prices and not busy at all.
Loved the course. Each hole is separate and our wonderful discounts because of camping at Mill Creek was much appreciated…thanks…
