Tom Doak’s apprentice, Mike DeVries, designed the Greywalls golf course at Marquette Golf Club and it opened for play in 2005 to a standing ovation. Golf has been played at Marquette since 1926 when William Langford and Theodore Moreau laid out nine holes close to Lake Superior and David Gill added a second nine in 1969 to form the club's original 18-hole course, named “The Heritage".

The holes at Greywalls weave through majestic woodlands and skirt past jagged, granite outcrops with fairways tumbling over broken, difficult terrain. The site is so demanding, it's hard to believe only forty thousand cubic yards of soil were shifted and three thousand cubic yards of rock blasted during construction.

Architect Mike DeVries articulated his thoughts on laying out Greywalls as follows:

"The routing for the course was very difficult, in that I had to find good golf holes that fit together and produced a good rhythm and flow to the course and not just one ‘wonder-hole’ after another, with rock everywhere and views of Lake Superior.

That was the biggest challenge, to not make it too dramatic and make sure it was good, solid golf. There are 233 acres that I had to work with, but much of that was not usable due to wetlands, a trout stream, rock ledge and outcroppings, and sheer rock walls.

These restrictions dictated how some holes could or couldn’t be developed and led to the routing being what it is."
