The Jewel is one of the most unique courses in the United States. Enjoy unparalleled scenic beauty, lush landscaping and meticulously manicured tees, fairways and greens. The Grand nine is located across the street from the hotel, with views of Lake Huron and Round Island. The Woods nine is set in the interior of Mackinac Island, with views of the Mackinac Bridge and the Upper Peninsula.After completing the Grand nine, you and your clubs will be transported via horse-drawn carriage a mile and a half to the Woods nine. The leisurely 15-minute ride includes parts of the island unseen by many visitors.The Grand nine was built in 1901 and redesigned in 1987 by golf course architect Jerry Matthews. He also designed the Woods nine, added in 1994. Jason Horricks, a PGA Certified Instructor, is available for private lessons. The Jewel is open to the public. Rental clubs, golf carts and pull carts are available.

The couse had just opened for the season when we were there. Still not in peak playing condo but it was included in our Grand Hotel package, although carts were provided for $50 per golfer. We had an enjoyable round. The front is quite hilly,...More

Hotel is breathtaking! Location is fabulous! Lots of land to roam around, the view from the porch of the bridge is relaxing. The rooms are charming and the food is great!

We stayed for a week and had such a great time. Always wanted to go and we finally did. Loved the walks around the island. The dinners at night are 5 star. I recommend this place to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing a game of golf....the course was spectacular with all the fall colors. The course was not crowded so we were able to enjoy playing without feeling pushed! Loved shopping in the pro shop with the end of season 50% off!

I have had lunch here numerous times when I visit Grand Hotel. Dining outdoors in a pleasant atmosphere is always delightful. The service is always top notch and the food and selection is good. Try it--you'll like it!

This is the hotel from the film "Somewhere in time" with Christopher Reeve. What a place, it will cost you $10.00 to go in but it is worth every cent. Once inside go to the top, order a drink or just sit and admire the...More
