Founded in 1999 in Arcadia, Michigan, the course is built on the bluffs above the shore of Lake Michigan and sits on approximately 245 windswept acres of lakefront property. The course drops 225 feet from its highest point down to the bluff, 180 feet above sea level, and has 3,100 feet of Lake Michigan shore frontage. Arcadia Bluffs resembles a seaside links course, with rolling terrain, and windswept natural fescues throughout. Players will be reminded of their favorite holes at Lahinch and Ballybunion, while enjoying breathtaking views of Lake Michigan from all points on the majestic layout. A Warren Henderson/Rick Smith design, Arcadia Bluffs offers players a golfing experience unlike anything in the United States. In addition to the golf course, Arcadia Bluffs offers world-class lodging. The Lodge at Arcadia Bluffs opened in 2010, and offers 15 well-appointed guest rooms, April through October. The Lodge is available, for private and corporate bookings, the months of November and December as well. Exceptional personal service is the hallmark of The Lodge. The Dining Room at Arcadia Bluffs offers a casual atmosphere, with an upscale feel. Again, personal service is paramount in The Dining Room, and the exceptional cuisine provides a truly unforgettable dining experience, every time out. Dining on the deck is available in the summer season, and offers incredible panoramic views of the golf course and beautiful Lake Michigan. The setting is simply breathtaking. The outside Patio Bar offers a casual setting, with a more relaxed atmosphere and menu. As with the Dining Room and deck, the Patio Bar offers unmatched vistas with world-class service.

This was one of the best golf experiences of my life. Our foursome, on a golf trip, loved this place. We had a forecaddie, Adam, who was invaluable. There were some blind tee shots that needed some foreknowledge. The greens were difficult to read and...More

Arcadia Bluffs is definitely one of the nicest and most beautiful courses I've ever played. The greens, fairways, tees, & bunkers were all incredibly maintained. It's definitely a challenge, but not so much that it's not fun. The only downside is the price, but it's...More
