The Loop at

Forest Dunes

Roscommon, Michigan

Unlike any other course (except itself)


Unique is one thing – and there is no question The Loop is unique. But unique AND good is another. There’s no question The Loop is completely unique – it’s two golf courses in one: one day it plays clockwise, the next it plays counterclockwise. This could easily be seen as a gimmick, if not for the fact that both courses stand on their own (and both are pretty much great). In fact, most people report they don’t even realize they’re playing another course backwards. But be forewarned: play an adventurous, daring and – yes – unique course like The Loop, and you’ll soon find other courses to be rote and uninspired. I think that’s worth if for the experience The Loop provides.
