Lakewood on the Green is nestled in a picturesque setting just Southwest of Cadillac, in Michigan’s North country. Well traveled golfers and locals alike will tell you this course is one that lures you back again, and again! An entire community of homes have been carefully arranged on our 300+ acres, as to preserve the natural beauty of this tranquil setting surrounded in tall pines, shimmering lake waters, and natural wildlife.
Our 18 holes measure nearly 6,100 yards from the blue tees, with four par-3′s, twelve par-4′s, and two par-5′s, for a total par of 70. Father and son team Norm & Pete Smith took 7 years to build the original course which first opened in 1980. By 1985, Lakewood on the Green was rated as “Michigan’s toughest, prettiest nine hole golf course” in The Wedge (National Golf Foundation Market Report).
After a few changes in name and ownership throughout the years (Wedgewood, Briar South), the property is now under new management and has returned to its original name in the Spring of 2013. Gently rolling and winding fairways, strategic bunkers and shoreline from the 15-acre lake make for a scenic tour of the links. In the Summer, aside from golf there are nature trails, boating, biking, sailing, fishing, swimming and hunting.
