Treetops History: The First Course
Treetops led the way of the Northern Michigan golf course construction boom in the 1980s and 1990s. It began in 1983, when Jackson, Michigan businessman Harry Melling purchased what was then the Sylvan Knob Ski Area, the property on which Treetops Resort is now located. After purchasing the resort, Melling began to think of ways he could utilize the property and generate income from Michigan’s warm summers. The answer: build golf courses to keep the property busy outside of ski season. And who better to hire for the job than one of the most influential figures in golf at the time, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. In a career that spanned nearly 70 years, Jones was one of the most prolific builders of links in the 20th century, designing 450 golf courses around the world between the 1930s and 1990s — including Treetops’ Masterpiece.
Masterpiece opened in 1987, and with Jones’ trademark “difficult par, easy bogey” layout, challenging elevation changes, breathtaking views, and forced carries, it won many accolades, including second best new resort course by Golf Digest. It remains one of the most exhilarating courses in the state, with a rating of 75.5 and a slope of 144.
As you tee up at the sixth hole of Jones Masterpiece, we hope you’ll experience the same awe that inspired Robert Trent Jones, Sr. to come up with the name “Treetops” 40 years ago. Join us and walk in the footsteps of legends like Robert Trent Jones, Sr. when you stay and play at Treetops Resort.
