Designed by one of Michigan’s most famous golf course architects, Jerry Matthews, St. Ives features a breathtaking setting with glacial-carved highlands and sprawling wetlands. The outstanding course conditions combined with a beautiful backdrop make St. Ives a world-class golf experience.
The course, which was built in 1995, has received several prestigious awards including a five-star rating from Golf Digest. In addition, we were named among the “Top 10 Courses in America for Women” by Golf for Women, and achieved the No. 5 ranking for the “Best New Affordable Public Courses” and the No. 1 slot for best courses “East of the Mississippi” by Golf Digest.
“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.”
– Don VanderVeen, Michigan Golf Magazine
St. Ives offers four sets of tees so that you can make your round as exciting or challenging as you wish. With velvety lush bentgrass fairways, tees and greens, the course is distinguished by water features in 11 of the 18 holes.
The undulating terrain is the result of the course being built on what was once glacial till. St. Ives presents 40 to 80 feet of elevation change so you will experience outstanding views of the surrounding area.
