About Lost Dunes Golf Club
Tucked just off the southeastern tip of Lake Michigan, acclaimed architect Tom Doak molded 18 distinctive holes to the contours of a reclaimed sand quarry bordered by 60-foot dunes. The 6900-yard, par-71 course Doak unearthed is an elite layout that is among the most unique in the Midwest. The course features bentgrass greens, tees, and fairways and has been consistently rated in the top 10 golf courses in Michigan by Golf Digest. Lost Dunes is a private club and truly a privileged golf experience.
