      Greywalls nationally recognized as one of the best

      Marquette Golf Club's Greywalls is on par with some of the best courses in the country, Golf Magazine pegging it number 84 out of the country's top 100 courses.

      The magazine article states, "What Michigan's Upper Peninsula lacks in an all-too-brief golf season, it makes up for with superb courses, such as Greywalls."

      "It's a very unique golf course. I don't think there's a golf course like this anywhere in the country. It has very extreme views; great use of rock croppings out here. The golf course is unlike anything else you'll see in the country," said Assistant Golf Professional Mike Polini.

      The 18-hole course twists and turns in and out of wooded areas while giving golfers plenty of scenic views. Throughout the course, there are six holes with views of Lake Superior, and staff say that's part of the reason why Greywalls is a top course in the country.

      "I think what keeps people coming back is there's not a course like it anywhere else. With the views of the lake, it's really a pretty place. It's special," Polini added.

      While staff at the Marquette Golf Club is excited about the title, the Marquette Country Convention and Visitors Bureau have high hopes of what the honor could mean for tourism.

      "Anytime we can get recognition on a national level, it really helps promote our area. We might see a spike on fall for tourism. Fall's a beautiful time on that golf course--leaves are changing, there are views of Lake Superior, it's wonderful. But I really think it will affect the golf tourism for next summer," said Allison Silk from the Visitor's Bureau.
