After what seemed like he was never gonna leave, I think Old Man Winter has finally made his exit from Northern Michigan. There was a time, back in late November, early December when we were excited about winter, The skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow shoeing, and all that winters here offer were sounding so good at that time. By March, not so much. When winter decided to stick around til mid April, it just got depressing.
Put away all the snow & ice gear, 'cause Spring is here! Dust off the clubs, get the bikes ready, the motorcycle, boat, kayaks, whatever it is that you like to do in the warmer months, it's finally time to get it out.
The golf courses are opening back up, Shanty Creek has officially opened one of the courses, The Farm GC in Bellaire is open, and all the others here in Antrim County will be back in business in the next week or so. With so many world class courses here, it's a big deal for anyone who loves the game. The Legend, The Chief, Ag-A-Ming, Schuss Mountain, and so many others around here, it's a golfers dream destination for sure.
The best thing about this golfer's utopia, other than the location in beautiful northwest Michigan, is the fact you can still get a great home, on or off the golf course, at a good price. Resorts, like Shanty Creek, Cedar River, & Schuss all have condos & homes available for sale priced from the $20,000 range for full ownership! Maybe fractional ownership is more to your liking, you can get into a 1/4 share for under $10,000! These are beautiful Condos in one of the premier resorts. Right now there are a few condos at Schuss's Villa Monte, located on the 1st Fairway, 2 bedrooms, fireplace, furnished, for the mid 50's! Add in the fact these are also at the bottom of the ski hills, you can enjoy these year around. Not into skiing? Put it into rental program, and let it help pay for itself.
Homes & condos can be found around here for every taste, from the condos priced from under 10k,(fractional ownership) to multi-million dollar lake homes.
With places like Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, Mackinaw Island, Petoskey, Charlevoix, Traverse city, Leelanau Peninsula, and all the great things they have to offer, all nearby, Antrim County is truly the place to be. Located in the heart of NW Michigan, with every thing from the natural beauty of the area, to night life, casinos, wineries, & some of the best golfing you will find anywhere, there is something for everyone. Come on up and let us show you!
