Popular with both golfers and skiers, Shanty Creek Resorts near Lake Bellaire is a four-season destination. The two sports are evenly matched here, which explains the popularity of the elevation changes on the Legend course for starters.

If you’ve only played Arnold Palmer courses in Florida, The Legend will be a revelation.  After seeing The Legend spelled in flowers and the extreme elevation change on the first hole you know this course is something special.. The cart path travels through woods where you’ll have curious deer watching your approach shots and wild turkeys who could care less.

On Shanty Creek’s Schuss Mountain course – a Warner Bowen design, all family members can take advantage of golf boarding (think long board meets Segway) a fun, new way to get around the course in place of the traditional golf cart.

Five minutes away, the small town of Bellaire, named for the popular lake, offers opportunities for swimmers, boaters and fisher people to enjoy more outdoor activities. On Bellaire’s main street you’ll find great craft brews at Shorts Brewing Company along with the best pizza for miles.

On summer evenings everyone heads to the Dockside Restaurant on Torch Lake to hang out on the huge waterfront patio quaffing local beers and chowing down on oversized wraps, salads and burgers while catching the famed northern Michigan sunsets.
