Arcadia Bluffs

Golf Course

Arcadia, Michigan

Massive views, massive elevation change, massive fun


Some golf courses are subtle, and underwhelm at first before slowing revealing their mysterious charms. Arcadia Bluffs is not one of those courses. From the moment you arrive, you can see this is a big, brash course that’s knows it’s got something special and is not afraid to flaunt it. The change in elevation is its secret weapon – the property drops precipitously as it approaches the cliffs above Lake Michigan, which allows for impressive vistas and a fun, tumbling routing. But this boldness – one reviewer calls the course “obnoxiously beautiful” – works. Arcadia Bluffs is an experience, in a way few other courses are. Take this totally fun journey – you’re not soon to forget it.

What To Know

Yardage & Tees

When to Play

Arcadia Bluffs is open from April through mid November.

Temperatures are relatively mild year-round. Look for temperatures to remain consistently in the 50s later in May through September. Rainfall is relatively consist throughout the year, but it does get wetter as the summer progresses — September is the wettest month.

May through September is a good time to play, with June through August being your best bet.
