In 1925 Members of the Belvedere Club, a summer home association of 91 cottages nestled between Round Lake and Lake Charlevoix, decided their existing social club needed a golf course. The group hired renowned Scottish architect William Watson to design a golf course “worthy of national reputation” and he delivered.
Michigan native and leading sportscaster, Mike Tirico has called the Belvedere Golf Club home since 2010. Mike welcomes golfers from all over Michigan and the Midwest to experience one of the classic golf gems found in America. A place visited by the greats in the game like Bobby Jones, Gene Sarazen, Walter Hagen, and Tom Watson.
After laying hidden for almost 100 Years, William Watson’s original drawings spurred a walk back in time for golf aficionados. After 95 years, with the genius of William Watson having resurfaced, the decision was quickly made to begin a restoration that would restore much of what had been lost over the decades.
