Stoatin Brae is the sixth 18-hole course to open at Gull Lake View Golf Club & Resort in 2017. Designed by a team of senior associates from Tom Doak’s Renaissance Golf Design company, the layout is built to play firm and fast.
The resort first opened for business in 1963, with the unveiling of the West course, followed a decade later by the East. Both layouts were designed by the Scott family, the property owners. After acquiring more land two and a half miles further to the east, the Scotts built the 18-hole South and North Stonehenge courses in 1988 and 1995, respectively.
They also purchased the older, William Mitchell-designed Bedford Valley course in 1988 so, until the arrival of Stoatin Brae, Gull Lake View was a 90-hole golf facility. This latest addition to the portfolio offers fabulous views of the Kalamazoo River Valley and the windy nature of the course’s exposed location places a premium on good ground game skills when playing here.
