November 16, 2010

GLEN ARBOR, MI – Golfweek Magazine has chosen Manitou Passage Golf Club, located near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in the Leelanau Peninsula, as one of its “Best New Courses” in 2010. The recognition of the 40 top new courses in the country appears in the October issue of the magazine.

Golfweek’s course evaluators grade courses all over the country on a 10-point scale to identify the country’s finest golf courses. Raters take into account factors such as routing of the course, feature shaping, greens, variety and memorable holes, conditioning, maintenance and landscape management.

This accolade makes Manitou Passage Golf Club one of the top destination courses in Northern Michigan. The course joins Harbor Shores Golf Club, designed by Jack Nicklaus, as one of the two Michigan courses to make the Golfweek’s best new list.
