Manitou Passage Golf Club – A Northern Michigan Adventure
By Jim Barnes It may seem unthinkable, even sacrilegious, to make any changes to a course designed by the great Arnold Palmer. Originally opened in 1998 as King’s Challenge, the course languished a bit when Sugar Loaf Mountain Ski Resort closed (the course is built alongside the ski hill), so it needed some rejuvenating and updating.

The Homestead Resort

Your road shut downs are horribly marked. Be prepared to stop right before isn't adequate warning for a closure this long.

But seriously how much longer is Williamsburg road going to be closed? Been sitting here 25 minutes with no end in sight. This is more than a be prepared to "stop".

If you are going to close a road, close it...

We were just behind that horrible accident that closed the road down. Still praying for all of those involved.

I didn't hear the outcome but a few locals at the restaurant said it was bad... We were about 20 cars behind it. The cops eventually turned us around and we did some dirt road drifting to TC.

What's the finish like this year?? Let's just say you might want to go pre-ride it today if you have time. Buses and trucks are waiting at Courtade Elementary School - TCAPS to give you a ride to Timber Ridge RV & Recreation Resort. ... See MoreSee Less

That finish was pretty tough! Rode 2x test laps today! Excited for tomorrow!

Kyle Macdermaid snagged this video of the 2018 finish at Timber Ridge RV & Recreation Resort so you don't get turned around at the end of 28 tough miles.

Watch the video; where are you putting in the winning move?youtube.com

barriers on Icebreaker could come into play in Pro race finish.

Something magical about seeing the barriers and soul crushing when they spit you back out into the woods.

Nice

28 miles...that’s what you said last year. 😂

This looks different than last years course. Not a fan of the tight barriers, makes it tough passn

Holy giddy up Batman! This is by far the fastest finish in my 18 years doing the race.

Derek Moran next year

I’ll be putting in my big finishing move around mile 25– well before the finish area— that being said, right before the last stretch before the line where the course veers out into unmarked single track, that looks like it could get confusing bc of no barriers through there? Maybe it’s just the leaves in the video tho 🤷🏼‍♂️

Did I see 2 bridge overpass shoots?

Will Havill, make sure Abby sees this! 👍

Scarlette Monahan, Is the Iceman Cometh bike ride up Kev's alley?
