Irish hole-by-hole

To reserve a tee time, call




No. 1
High Ground

Par 4 — Handicap 4

A generous landing area for the opening hole leads way to a long-narrow elevated green.

No. 2
Giants Leap

Par 4 — Handicap 6

Safety first is the motto on the short par 4 second. A tee shot in the fairway is a must if you expect to hold the narrow front-to-back green.

No. 3

Par 3 — Handicap 18

The bunker and pond on the left create an intimidating short iron shot into the large undulating green.

No. 4

Par 4 — Handicap 2

Bunker left and bunker right may be your thought on the tee box of this lengthy par 4, but don’t be intimidated. It is a generous fairway if positioned well.

No. 5
Devil's Elbow

Par 5 — Handicap 14

Long hitters can cut the corner on this reachable par 5; a split fairway for the second can create a difficult layup.

No. 6
Mulligan's Watch

Par 3 — Handicap 16

Stay calm as you prepare to hit this unique island green surrounded by one very large bunker.

No. 7

Par 4 — Handicap 12

A short dogleg right can be attacked from almost any angle on this generous fairway. The large two-tiered green is protected by two very deep bunkers in the rear

No. 8
Garden Creek

Par 5 — Handicap 10

This split fairway par 5 invites you to go for the green in two, but beware of the large fairway bunker and false front that surrounds the large undulating green.

No. 9
Last Gaspe

Par 4 — Handicap 8

A winding creek creates visual intimidation as it cuts the fairway in two, then again on the approach as it dashes across the front of the green.

No. 10
Shepherd's Post

Par 4 — Handicap 5

This slight dogleg left looks a lot longer than it plays, gradually climbing to one of the highest points on the property.

No. 11
Lamb Chop

Par 3 — Handicap 15

Club selection is difficult on this treacherous par 3. The left side of the green is home to a couple of the deepest pot bunkers on the course.

No. 12
Highland Trek

Par 4 — Handicap 13

Check out the great views of Lake Michigan and The Straits from the highest point on The Irish while teeing off to the valley below.

No. 13
Blind Man's Bluff

Par 3 — Handicap 17

The name describes it all on this multilevel, double-tee par 3 leading to the largest green on The Irish.

No. 14
Tullamore Dew

Par 5 — Handicap 11

A tee box in the farthest northwest corner of the property, this tricky risk/reward par 5 is among the most scenic on the back nine.

No. 15
Frog Water

Par 4 — Handicap 1

Do not try to cut off too much on the right side of the difficult dogleg right. The long, skinny green is protected by undulating mounds and difficult pot bunkers.

No. 16
Deep Dye

Par 4 — Handicap 3

Among the most undulating of the greens on The Irish, the pin location is key here. Trust your tee line as intimidation is definitely a factor

No. 17
Irish Mist

Par 4 — Handicap 7

This short par 4 wraps around the beautiful pond creating a difficult tee shot. If intimidation is in your blood, bail out to the right.

No. 18
Black and Tan

Par 5 — Handicap 9

The skinny winding fairway of this par 5 snakes to the left of the mound in the fairway.  A miss to the right of this green will give the best chance for a par.
