Glacier Carved Beauty Enhances the Golf Experience at St. Ives
“St. Ives is a dramatic melding of hardwoods, wetlands and steep elevation changes. It all adds up to a golfing experience unparalleled south of the 45th parallel,” says Don VanderVeen in Michigan Golf magazine.
Built in 1995, St. Ives has received several prestigious awards over the years including a 5-star rating from Golf Digest, being named among the Top 10 Courses in America for Women by Golf for Women and being ranked by Golf Digest as No. 5 among the Best New Affordable Public Courses and as No. 1 for Best Courses East of the Mississippi.
Designed by Jerry Matthews, a legendary Michigan golf course architect, the St. Ives course is considered by many to be his best work. He took one of the state’s finest mixes of woodlands, sprawling wetlands and glacier carved highlands to create an outstanding golf experience with many scenic vistas. Four sets of tees allow golfers to choose one best suited to their individual game. Bentgrass fairways, tees and greens are immaculately maintained.
Yardages and slope/course ratings at the par 72 with 4 sets of tees: 6,702 yards (140/73.3); 6,247 (131/71.1); 5,707 (124/68.0); 4,821 (120/68.7).
