The Resorts of Tullymore & St. Ives - Michigan’s Best Two-Day Golf ExperienceThe unique experience of Tullymore and St. Ives is unforgettable and challenging. Five sets of tee boxes at each of the 36 holes allow golfers to match their play with their skill level as they put their game to the test on either course. Meticulously groomed, bentgrass fairways wind through wetlands and lush hardwoods, snaring an errant drive or fairway shot. Seductively undulating greens, guarded by oak sentinels and imaginative bunkering, heighten the quest for every hole. Eye-popping views change from each vantage point throughout a round, and the drive leading to both clubhouses begins one’s visit to this “Heaven in the Palm of Michigan.”

Tullymore’s Lure

Tullymore’s winding fairways flow with European flair over 800 acres of some of Michigan’s most beautiful terrain. Its artistic, dynamic design by Jim Engh, a Golf Digest Architect of the Year, will captivate every golfer. Each hole takes full advantage of its natural surroundings by incorporating the land’s native grasses, wetlands and forests. Tullymore wins a golfer’s heart and lures him or her to return again and again.

It also features a magnificent 18,000 square-foot clubhouse as the hallmark centerpiece of its surrounding, growing residential community. An elegant veranda stretches almost the entire length of the rear of the building and overlooks the sensational design and view of the golf course’s signature 18th hole. The spot is a very popular lounge area for both golfers and non-golfers alike, especially around two stone fire pits that grace each end of the veranda and provide comfy seating. Even with a capacity of 250 guests, the area normally full of fun well into the evening.

St. Ives, Another Masterpiece

Prior to the creation of Tullymore, golfers had already discovered the St. Ives Golf Course, another golfing masterpiece that awaits players just five miles from Tullymore. Many regard St. Ives as one of Jerry Matthews’ best work. The legendary golf course architect took one of the finest mixes of woodlands, wetlands and tranquil surroundings that Michigan had to offer and created an exceptional golf experience with a tour de force of rolling fairways, dramatic elevation changes of 40 to 80 feet and breathtaking vistas.
