One of our first stops was in Traverse City. Neither of us had ever been to Traverse City but Dan had heard there was some quality golf to be found.
The Crown Golf Club was our first round and didn’t disappoint.
Located just ten minutes from downtown, this track makes its way over rolling hills and is generous off the tee. We both were able to hit driver comfortably on most holes.
The real story begins on the second shot, however. Greens are well protected by bunkers and lakes. And when the wind blows, which it certainly did for us, you’d best pick the right club if you want to putt for birdie.
We had a late lunch in Mulligan’s Pub and Grill after our round. The locals recommended any of the burgers on the menu, so of course that was my choice. Dan being Dan, however, opted for a personalized pesto pizza topped with all kinds of rabbit food I can’t quite recall. He’s a dirty hippy.
Regardless, both our round and post-round meals were top-shelf. We will most certainly be back.
