The Heather | NGCOA National Course Of The Year

If you haven't heard the news, our very own Heather Golf Course has been named the National Golf Course of the Year by the National Golf Course Owners Association! This being such a prestigious award, we couldn't be prouder. Our tiny corner in northern Michigan is being nationally recognized and we want to share all the details with you.

The NGCOA selected its winner based on four criteria; quality of golf course, quality of ownership and management, outstanding contributions to the local community, and significant contributions to the game of golf. The Heather was nominated by the Michigan Golf Course Association which named The Heather the 2018 Michigan Golf Course of the Year.  

The Heather has earned its reputation as one of the finest championship courses in the entire United States. Bearing all the markings of its legendary designer, this Robert Trent Jones, Sr. course has tested the finest names in the game since 1966, playing host to Michigan Amateurs, AJGA Championships, the Michigan State Pro-Am, and The Celebrity Tour.  

With the sun coming out to play and the grass getting greener, it is time to "think summer" and get out the golf clubs. Be sure to book your tee time to enjoy the best golf course in the country, right here, at The Highlands.
