The snowy weather covering the Midwest has golfers itching to get back outside and tee off and when the snow does abate for the season, they will have many choices including two of the best greens in the country right here in Michigan.

Golfpass.com, an online outlet owned by NBC, has ranked the 50 best golf courses in the U.S. for 2022 and two of them reside in mid-Michigan in the towns of Stanwood and Bath.

“While 2020 and 2021 have presented the world with unprecedented challenges, in the corners where people chase a little dimpled ball around for a few miles, things are going gangbusters,” the website states.

In 2020, 500 million rounds of golf were played showing a great increase from the late 2010s where numbers were below 450 million, according to the website. That same year, golf courses received more than 265,000 reviews from golfers and in 2021, that number grew to over 320,000 reviews. These reviews allowed Golfpass.com to put together a thorough ranking of the best courses.

Tullymore golf course in Stanwood is ranked at 33rd on the list and is described by reviews as challenging and a world class course with wonderful and friendly staff. The course has received an overall rating of 4.8 stars with 96.1% of golfers and visitors recommending it.

Eagle Eye Golf Club in Bath is ranked at 46th with an overall rating of 4.7 stars and 97.1% of golfers recommend the course. Many of the reviews for it describe it as being in excellent condition and with good amenities and friendly staff.
