We know you have a choice of where to play, exercise or just to relax. We invite you to become a part of the best choice for the all-around club experience in the area.

Once you’ve played at Manistee National you’re going to yearn to golf here more often. Membership here gives you great variety, because you have two very unique courses to choose from. You can play our classic The Retreat course, known for its Kentucky bluegrass traditional-style fairways. Or take on The Revenge, a thinking golfer’s course paved with bent grass amid the marshes of Manistee, Michigan. Having two courses at Manistee National means that you’ll always be able to get your desired tee times as well as having access to our wonderful practice facility regularly. Imagine what that will mean to your scoring. And all this great golf is surrounded by the unique wildlife and stands of pines that you’ll find in Northern Michigan’s Manistee National Forest.

We offer membership opportunities at very affordable rates, a value you simply can’t pass up. We have memberships geared to your lifestyle whether you are a local or part-time resident of the area and no matter what your age. With your membership, you will also be able to play in member tournaments, monthly scrambles and couples leagues and tournaments. You’ll have the chance to make new friends who love Manistee as much as you do. Soon you’ll get to know our courses like they’re in your own backyard. There will definitely be a trophy in your future. We like to say that we’re all about golf at Manistee. There are no food minimums, no bridge tournaments, and no compulsory social events. But there are loads of off-course benefits that you can get with your membership, including access to our swimming facilities, which are both indoors and out.

The value of a membership at Manistee National is unequaled anywhere in the state. The opportunity to play two pristine and challenging courses, the friendly courteous and knowledgeable staff in all areas from the restaurant to the pro shop, makes for an enjoyable experience every time I play!
