For more than 30 years, The Dells has been one of Northern Michigan's favorite courses to play. This classic Jerry Matthews design surrounds the golfer with natural beauty and spectacular views. The front nine features a beautiful parkland setting with acres of mowed grass, which allows a smooth transition into the woods and creeks of the back nine. Host of Michigan's amateur championship for several years, The Dells is truly a fair and fun test of golf.
It's a wonderful golf course. It's always been one of my favorites and it always will be. -Jerry Matthews, designer of Antrim Dells
The course is truly a hidden gem. I have been playing the course for about 20 years. I've played many of the area's top courses and put Antrim at the top of my list for course to play in Michigan. The staff is courteous and respectful. If you haven't played Antrim, you haven't played Michigan golf. It's all there in one great golf course. -Tim L., Kalamazoo, MI
This is a great course to play. Generally not busy because of the location. The course offers an interesting layout. The first 9 holes allow the golfer to swing more freely without worrying about accuracy, while the back nine has a lot tighter fairways and a lot of hazards to deal with. It's a great mixture for the golfer. -Jason, Santa Barbara, CA
