Otsego Club and Resort Review

Behind the scenes of the Otsego Club in Michigan.

Otsego Club and Resort in Michigan Golf Course.

This Alpine–style ski lodge and golf resort gives you a warm fuzzy feeling as you arrive and butterflies when you walk into the lobby and see the 14-mile long view of the mountain ridges. If you're in the Michigan area, the Otsego Club and Resort is a can't–miss experience!

With the largest wine list in Northern Michigan, it is clear to see why people choose to come here to dine and wine. The calamari is exquisite, and the steak will melt in your mouth. With a weekly selection of the chef’s local fresh favorites, you are sure to find something on this large menu to please your palate.

In terms of lodging, the newly renovated rooms smell like cedar and give you a very Northern Michigan feel. The furniture is all handmade from branches, and the large fireplaces in the living areas make for a great social gathering place. Wonderful large new bathrooms and kitchens give you an option to stay for an entire week and settle in with tons of space to entertain and relax.

Offering play on two courses, the Tribute delivers breathtaking views from most of the tee boxes. This difficult course will make you want to come back again and again just to see the mountains and hills. The fast greens and narrow fairways make the second course the Classic equally as difficult. A very mature course offers play that will challenge your ability to pick the right clubs to give yourself a decent approach shot.

Otsego Club turns from a golf resort to a ski lodge in the winter, drawing families in for membership all year. With instruction and 31 slopes, 5 chair lifts, 4 snowboard terrain parks and 6.2 miles of Nordic ski trails, this is really a winter wonderland.  

Gaylord, Michigan draws a crowd all on its own. Nestled in Northern Michigan and right on the snow belt, this area has a cute Alpine feel. From the gas stations and convenience stores, to the Walmart and McDonald’s, everyone pitches in to go with the town theme of a mountain village. It is a real adventure just to drive through town to visit this resort and see what the area has to offer.
