Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1966, The Heather was the first BOYNE golf course and its challenge is absolutely timeless. The course is widely considered to be one of the finest championship courses in the nation.

Today, The Heather spans 7,148 yards of temptation, drama, and mystique. A championship caliber player will find a sound test for every facet of their game, yet the course is consistently recognized as one of the friendliest for women and senior golfers. The Heather continues to receive praise and recognition year after year, and has been ranked as one of the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play " by Golf Magazine, and "50 Best Courses for Women" by Golf for Women. Wildlife abounds as you traverse over rolling fairways, natural wetlands, tour white sand bunkers, and blueberry bogs.

Many prestigious events have made the Heather their host site for its fair and consistent play, including the 1998, 2006, and 2011 Michigan Amateur Championships.
