About Us


Named after nearby Crystal Lake, Crystal Lake Golf started with a front 9 designed and created in 1970 by the legendary golf course architect, Bruce Matthews. The first 9 holes have remained relatively unchanged and feature sprawling fairways, suitable for golfers of all experience levels. In 1987, Bruce’s son Jerry Matthews continued his father’s work with a back 9 designed to challenge even the most experienced golfers. Whether you’re playing a round, or enjoying a celebration next to family and friends, you’ll enjoy abundant wildlife and breathtaking views on the banks of Crystal Lake.

Golf and Weddings

Crystal Lake Golf started out as a golf location in 1970, but since then we’ve grown into so much more. We are a top-notch outdoor venue for weddings, birthday parties, class reunions, fundraisers, and charity events. Whether you’re a lover of golf or just want to get a weekend away at a driving range located in the serenity of Northern Michigan, we can offer you what you need.
