“Two of America’s Best, One Michigan Destination”

The Resorts of Tullymore & St. Ives - “Two of America’s Best, One Michigan Destination”

Would you like the thrill of nationally ranked golf that’s affordable, with abundant wildlife and scenic beauty, doubled by two of America’s best places to play, all in one Michigan destination? You’ll find it all at The Resorts of Tullymore & St. Ives, just 45 minutes northeast of Grand Rapids.

Begin the Unforgettable

The unique experience of Tullymore and St. Ives begins on the drive leading to the clubhouses, through native grasses, wetlands, lakes and lush state hardwoods that create spectacular vistas greeting golfers from each of the 36 holes. Meticulously groomed Bent grass fairways, seductively undulating greens, artistic bunkers and dramatic elevation changes of up to 80 feet provide a “touch of heaven in the palm of Michigan.”

Tullymore, designed by the nationally acclaimed Jim Engh, is ranked 14th on the 2008 Golf Digest list of America’s Greatest Public and Resort Golf Courses and both Tullymore and St. Ives have earned Golf Digest’s highest rating of 5-Stars. Both continue to “exceed expectations one guest at a time,” just like The Resorts’ slogan says.

Linger On for More

Your enjoyment lingers on after leaving the links and heading into either of the impressive clubhouses, featuring superb dining, well-appointed meeting rooms and banquet facilities, and golf shops filled with state-of-the-art golf apparel and equipment. The golf pro shop at St. Ives has won top national awards several years in a row. A professional, courteous and knowledgeable staff is ready to serve all your needs throughout the resorts, which also offer other world-class amenities like work-out facilities, steam room, massage treatment and a large indoor pool.

The hallmark centerpiece anchoring Tullymore’s golf course, resort and residential community is the new and magnificent $7-million, 18,000 square-foot clubhouse. Its elegant veranda almost stretches the entire length of the building while overlooking the sensational dramatic design of the 18th hole. It’s a popular hangout for both golfers and non-golfers alike, especially around the two stone fire pits that grace each end and provide comfy, picturesque seating.

The Resorts of Tullymore & St. Ives

Even before the existence of Tullymore, golfers from Detroit found it well worth the drive to play a round at St. Ives, spend the night and play another round the next day before heading back home. Now with a single reservation – at either the Inn at St. Ives, a 44-room deluxe hotel right next door to the St. Ives Clubhouse, or at one of the luxurious new condominiums and custom-built homes in The Villages at Tullymore – you can enjoy stay and play packages that are customized for couples or small to large groups for single nights or longer.

Live the Experience

The Tullymore Clubhouse is not the only outstanding change delivered by the developers and owners of The Resorts of Tullymore & St. Ives. Nearly 200 of the planned 300 plus, single family home sites have been completed in The Villages at Tullymore. Prime sites for custom-built homes are selling quickly. In addition, duet condominiums with their own spectacular views offer maintenance-free living in luxurious style. For those interested in an upscale luxury vacation home, you’ll find it through the Residence Club at Tullymore, offering fractional home ownership that includes golf membership at both Tullymore and St. Ives during your stay.

Going Beyond Golf

The idyllic setting of The Resorts is teaming with recreational activities that go beyond the ultimate, unforgettable golf experience. The area is surrounded by lakes and trails – perfect for fishing, boating, hiking or even horseback riding. Gaming entertainment is nearby, too, at the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant.
