Nationally Acclaimed - Tom Doak Design
The Black Forest is a Tom Doak design that continues to garner national recognition as one of the top courses in the United States. The course is characterized by undulating greens, massive bunkers and unmaintained areas from tee to fairway. Reminiscent of designs by the old masters, this course epitomizes the hot trends of minimalist design while sprawling across 400 acres on Michigan Forest.
