Shanty Creek’s The Legend Course is often held as the best course at the resort, a title generally contested between the Cedar River course. Legend is in itself the product of a legend, Arnold Palmer. The course takes advantage of a prime piece of property north of Traverse City, with views of Lake Bellaire from the higher points along the route.

A more prominent body is the resort’s title creek, which comes into play during Nos. 8 and 9, its only appearance across the resort’s four courses. During No. 8, players will first hit over a separate creek flowing from an irrigation pond and then players will choose whether to challenge Shanty itself, which sits in front of the green, for a potential eagle putt. The next hole will feature a similar challenge, but in a par four format.

This is a true out-and-back 18, so be sure to stock up on supplies before you hit the trail. The Legend is frequently considered the tougher of the two prime courses at Shanty Creek, due both to its rolling topography and its tighter fairways.
