About Rattle Run Golf Course

Designed in 1977 by Lou Powers and renovated earlier this year, this 18-hole St. Clair golf course plays 6,900 yards from the back tees.

This course presents a significant challenge for even the most experienced player, boasting 78 bunkers and water hazards that majestically weave through 15 of 18 holes. Meanwhile, novice players will enjoy the dramatic elevation changes that the Northern Michigan area is known for. From the tee-lined fairways to the wildlife, rivers and vegetation, golfers will love the on-course experience at Rattle Run.
