Each year, The Alpine plays host to Michigan's Tournament of Champions. And once you've played the course, you'll understand why. With its spectacular mountain setting and panoramic views towards Deer Lake, its surroundings are every bit as breathtaking as its noteworthy design. Known for its open, playable layout that trends down the mountain, solid drives are rewarded and its forgiving greens can bolster confidence in your short game.
