Greywalls Course Details
The Greywalls course opened to rave reviews in 2005. Designed by Mike DeVries, the entire course is a natural wonder and a testament to the rugged beauty of the Marquette area. The course takes players through a wild ride and over a diverse but flowing variety of terrain: tumbling fairways, boldly contoured slopes, dramatic elevation changes, rolling and bunkered links land, and breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Superior. It's a truly unique golf experience that has caught the attention of all the golfing world. GolfWeek named it the #2 course you can play in Michigan, and upon its opening, it was included in the Top Ten Best New Course listings of all the major golf publications. If you're looking for a truly inspiring and unforgettable golf experience, Greywalls must be on your list.
Course Designer: Mike DeVries
Golf architect Mike DeVries is a craftsman who insists on being personally involved with all aspects of golf course development, including feature shaping of the putting greens and bunkers. By being on-site consistently throughout the construction process, DeVries also enabled himself to continually study the land, reacting to previously unforeseen opportunities and improving upon his original design concepts. This evolutionary process inevitably results in a unique golf course of enduring quality.
A 1987 graduate of Lake Forest College in suburban Chicago (Business Administration), DeVries apprenticed with golf architect, Tom Doak, before going on to the University of Michigan where he earned his Master's degree in Landscape Architecture in 1994. Following a stint as an on-site design coordinator with golf architect, Tom Fazio, DeVries designed and constructed four new golf courses including the Kingsley Club & Greywalls.
