Red Hawk Golf Course

For the avid Golfer, we recommend Red Hawk Golf Corse in East Tawas. It is a destination course designed by Arthur Hills. Set amongst an old forest, there is shade and atmosphere that you can not get anywhere else. You won’t find flatland here, instead you’ll find high elevations and unexpected contours, without a distraction or intrusion in sight. A beautifully manicured and well maintained course. It is the best on the Sunrise side of the state.  It is a very popular place, reservations are strongly encouraged.
