2.Research the area before booking accommodations and tee times. Travel guides and online browsing are great resources for your entire trip needs.

3.Decide where you are going. Situated on the shoreline on Lake Michigan, Bay Harbor Golf Club is a “must play” offering three unique nine hole courses and 27 holes of Arthur Hills gold.

4.Schedule your tee times in advance. The sooner, the better!

5.Purchase a durable well-made travel bag for traveling with your golf clubs and if you do use a soft-sided bag, don’t forget to pack a golf club protection device so your clubs don’t get damaged.

6.If you’re traveling via airplane, don’t forget that golf bags are considered oversized check-in luggage.

7.Accommodations can make or break the trip. Stay at Bay Harbor’s Village Hotel or the Inn at Bay Harbor. Within close proximity to the Bay Harbor Golf Club, these accommodations are a stone’s throw away and provide access to a great game of golf with your friends!

Bay Harbor makes for a great place to stay for a week, a month, or a lifetime. No matter how long, you’ll wish it could be longer, and the fun doesn’t stop off of the golf course.
