Hawk’s Eye is located among the rolling hills of northern Michigan. Golfers will go on an adventure as they proceed along their route. The course cuts gently through the trees, but as you approach some of the many vistas on the course, the trees give way to magnificent views of the countryside. The course itself has been designed with golfers of all levels of play in mind. The back tees are positioned such that there are more forced carries and such that accurate shots, especially drives, are a must. Whereas, the forward tees get progressively easier. They are easier not only due to the obviously lower yardage, but also because of the placement of the tees. In short, the course has been designed to be challenging and fun for all levels of play. Golfers will be amazed at the size of the greens. Many of them are in excess of 10,000 square feet. That means hitting the green doesn’t necessarily mean par. The fairways are also majestically appointed. Although the course is just being built, the holes that are completed look as though they have been there for hundreds of years. A lot of attention has been paid to blending the course with its natural surroundings. The facility is located approximately 1.5 miles east of The Chief on Schoolcraft Road. Tee times can be made by calling The Chief.
