High winds, cold air blowing off the water, heavy rains… welcome to
Scotland golf on the shores of Lake Michigan in early fall. The HOG World Tour stopped in at Bay Harbor Golf Club to play the Links Course and Quarry Course, each 9-holes. Bay Harbor Golf Club is located in Bay Harbor, Michigan, very close to Petsoskey (see map below).
Golf holes near large bodies of water have a different look and feel to them. There are many holes at Bay Harbor which are right on the water. Below is the par-3 eighth on the Quarry course, my 17th on the day. Stunning.
Below is the par-4 first hole on the Links course. See the ball furthest from the hole? That’s mine. Drained that one for birdie!
A few more pics below are from the very interesting Quarry course which was, you guessed it, build in an old cement quarry.

I’ll be posting a full review of the Links and Quarry courses soon. Stay tuned.
Here’s the map below, showing Bay Harbor’s northerly location, and my current location (blue dot) in the Traverse City airport!
