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

We were disappointed with the festival this year. I’ll cut it some slack since it had to be rescheduled due to the weather in July. $30 (prepaid) for two tiny tastings. Really? No real food like years in the past. No big tents for shaded seating areas. A lot of the wineries that do participate, did not. Again, I’m sure the rescheduling of the event had a lot to do with it.

The Hunt for the Reds of October – Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail – Weekdays in October

Weekdays during October

$10 per person

Includes signature wine glass, a complimentary red wine pour at each winery and a $5 donation to the American Red Cross. Great wine for a great cause— It doesn’t get better than that!

Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietals and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region.

For the entire month of October, your ticket gets you a complimentary pour at each of more than 20 participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and many more.
