The Fried Egg: Greywalls Review

Our friend, Andy Johnson of The Fried Egg, recently posted a review of Greywalls.

“Greywalls possesses a supreme diversity of landscapes. There are stunning views of Lake Superior, gargantuan granite outcroppings, the Oriana Creek, ravines, and a sandy dunescape. The setting is unique in the world of golf. But Greywalls is not just about views; it also has a stellar design by Mike DeVries.”

Thanks, Andy!

Pure Michigan 18

Two DeVries courses have been included in the Pure Michigan 18 campaign! This list highlights some of the most iconic Michigan golf holes.

See the full list

Pierson, MI: The bunker placement at Pilgrim's Run Golf Club's par-5 6th hole gives golfers multiple paths to play. At 483 yards, #6 earned the name Vainglory and is the course's most photographed hole.

Marquette, MI: The 7th hole on Marquette Golf Club's Greywalls course is long par-4 that shows off the rugged beauty of the area with a rock outcrop in the middle of the fairway. The course was designed by legendary golf architect Mike DeVries and provides breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Superior.

Digital Fairways' Review of Greywalls

“When you drive into the Marquette Golf Club you’ll wind through the original course there, the Heritage, which is a great course in its own right, but a traditional layout on relatively benign terrain. After parking and checking in at the pro shop, you’ll drive five minutes or so to the first tee. On the way there, you’ll see a handful of holes from the Greywalls course and it quickly becomes evident that this course is nothing like its sister course, or like any other course you’ve seen. After winding through the forest and arriving at the first tee, you’ll look down the fairway to see Lake Superior several miles in the distance. While lake views are always nice, they are not the main attraction at Greywalls. The golf is so spectacular that it’s possible (though not likely) that one could play the entire round and not even notice the largest freshwater lake in the world out in front of them.”

God of the Greens: Mike DeVries

Traverse City’s Mike DeVries has gone from mowing fairways at Frankfort’s tony Crystal Downs to designing some of Northern Michigan’s sweetest links. This year GolfWeek Magazine named the DeVries-designed Greywalls course in Marquette No. 3 in the state, and Kingsley Club, just south of Traverse City, No. 20 of the Best Modern Courses in the nation. We caught up with the wunderkind between trips to Texas, where he’s carrying out the decades-lost design of a course MacKenzie masterminded in 1930.
