Chuck (pretty sure that was his name) in the pro shop was great at explaining this unique golf course and helping us out loading and unloading clubs off the carriages. He was extremely friendly and was very accommodating that our carriage took much longer than we anticipated.
The course itself remains mostly unchanged since opening in 1898. This makes it a lot different than most courses with small greens, interesting sand traps, and even some history of The Battle of 1812 scattered throughout the course.
Again, the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming.

Had the opportunity to play Wawashkamo last week, what a absolute fantastic experience! The golf course was built in 1898 making it the oldest in the state. Feels like you are playing in Scotland but on Mackinac Island, Chuck the head pro and his staff are very welcoming! Have only good things to say, will be back next visit to the island.

About a 25 minute walk from downtown. Course was originally made with horse drawn plows, so it may be a bit rougher than some. But it adds to the charm of the place and is smooth enough to drive electric carts on. The staff is very welcoming and helpful in answering any questions you may have. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone.
