Golf Michigan, Manitou Passage Golf Club
Arnold Palmerıs ³Signature Course² Kingıs Challenge is reborn in Leelanau County as Manitou Passage Golf Club
Over the past two decades some of the most distinguished new golf courses in America have opened in northern Michigan. Perhaps thatıs because the nationally acclaimed golf course architects who designed those courses were inspired by the beauty of regionıs hills, forests and waters. Nowhere is that beauty more pronounced than to the northwest of Traverse City in Leelanau County.
This sparsely populated decidedly rural county is made up of 348 square miles of land and 2,184 square miles of water. It is the home of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, which is considered by many to be the Stateıs number one attraction. Its unmatched beauty with a climate tempered by the water made it a perfect setting for an Arnold Palmer Signature Course - the course that Kingıs Challenge was meant to be.
