Golf, invented in Scotland, Perfected in Traverse City. Even in northern Michigan - the Midwest's golf capital - LochenHeath Golf Club stands out. Rated by Golf Digest for 2015 as #12 Best Course in Michigan and has been listed in both Golf Magazine and Golfweek as a Top Course You Can Play, the challenging 7,239-yard course, only minutes from downtown Traverse City, is a shot-maker's dream. The Scottish links-style design is one of very few in northern Michigan and features rolling terrain, wide open fairways and deep, well-placed bunkers. Many holes offer sweeping views of Grand Traverse Bay. Beyond golf, LochenHeath has an outstanding restaurant, a well-stocked pro shop, and an attentive staff that's eager to please. We are transitioning to a fully private club but invite outside play during this transition. For the perfect golf experience, please call to reserve your tee time.

Had a great time with a group of 8. The staff did an excellent job accommodating our large group. The course was in excellent shape. The views were awesome.

I loved this place but then again shot 7 better than my handicap!!! Staff everywhere throughout very helpful and friendly. They say the greens are the selling point and very fast. Certainly it's true they are very good but they were slightly slower than normal as it had rained the day before. Course is well laid out and challenging regardless... More

I played LochenHeath a few days ago. Every aspect of the experience was first class. The course was in amazing shape and the greens ran fast and true. I played from the blue tees and they were challenging but fair. The views were absolutely spectacular. The Head Professional Terry Crick provides his own "pro tips" cheat sheet and they were...

The greens were kicking us as they were fast with deceiving breaks! But what a gorgeous course. Wow. Views were magnificent and the course well-maintained with the nicest staff around. We loved that we felt like we had the place to ourselves as our husbands were in front of us but no one behind and it was cold and misty... More

When traveling to northern Michigan to play golf, a stop at The Bear is always a must. This trip was no different, however my son who works at Grand Cypress in Orlando FL stated we had to give Locenheath a try. Needless to say after one round on this spectacular course we will make this a regular as well provided... More

Hubby and friend played golf and thoroughly enjoyed challenging course and use of the forecaddie. The forecaddie made the experience all the more enjoyable. Then, four of us found the dinner menu inventive and choices delicious especially the app, firecracker shrimp, and entrees, lamb chops and lemon crusted whitefish. Would go back in a heartbeat!

All in all this was a good experience. This is not a typical restaurant in northern michigan and that is good. The chef changes the menu frequently and that is awesome! Keeping it fresh, exiting, and different is a great way to keep locals and frequent visitors/members excited about the restaurant. Some attention to detail was lacking, i.e. one of... More

Had been meaning to visit the restaurant for a long time and been told it was very good. Finally had the opportunity and while not disappointed, it was not anywhere near what others had said. Menu changes frequently which is always good. We started with drinks. Their choices of bourbons were limited to two which is surprising since the Grand... More
