Our team attended a conference at Grand Traverse Resort for the MLTA and had great service friendly staff. But the short ribs luncheon was fabulous. Absolutely the greatest piece of beef I've ever been served.

We stayed this past weekend and had just an excellent time as well as great weather. Our first night at the hotel we had dinner at Aerie restaurant and it was amazing! Loved the wine as much as the appetizer, dinner and Crème’ Brulee for dessert. Monday we ventured out on a wine tour of Old Mission Peninsula and enjoyed visiting the wineries and meeting folks that worked there. Headed back to the hotel at the end of the day to get time in the newer Jacuzzi. Much needed and enjoyed but need longer hours. Look forward to another fall trip and excited to plan a few winter trips and try out the some of the winter activities available.(Melissa Heinrich guest)

Made an appointment at the spa for manicure/pedicure. I was 6 minutes late and they called to tell me that I was eating away my own time by being late. I was not happy with the quality of the work nor the offerings of the salon. And then to be hit with the bill... I about fell over!!! My sister and I were going in to get ready for our other sister's wedding and wanted to splurge a little but this was almost a weeks wages for one hour of service. I am not at all happy and WILL NOT go back

My daughter and I spent last weekend at the GT Resort and we loved it . . . .from the panormic view of the fall colors on the bay from our window, to the kind and accomodating resort team, to the resort shops, and of course, the comfort of our room was exactly what we needed after being on the go all day. We also had a spa day at the resort and it was spectacular! We are aleady talking about our next visit, exploring some of the resort restaurants and definitely visiting the spa again!! Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Spruce Run Golf Played 9/25/2013 With my GAM discount the round was a steal. The staff was amazing. From the bag drop attendant i felt welcome. Pro shop staff was very nice and the starter gave me an awesome overview of some of the more difficult holes to expect. Beverage cart was available 3 times during my round. Was a little pricy but cant beat the convenience. I dont recall there being a "turn" to stop and get something, but there was drinking water on several holes. I am a 15 handicap but a longer hitter but still played the white tees. If i manage to hit a fairway i hit long off the tee and some of the holes played a little short. i can hit like 1 in 6 drives 300ish and accurate, so i feel like a douche having to wait for ppl to clear a green when theres a 5/6 chance ill put a drive 100 yards in the woods. The blues play a respectable length. No holes particularly narrow but i wouldn't call the place wide open by any means. If you have a blind shot i highly recommend driving up to see whats over there. I was lazy and ended up losing a couple balls. Also pay attention to the pin placement and green slope tips on the scorecard and save half a dozen strokes. Being late in the season i had no expectation but the course was in great shape. The greens were fast and tough but rolled true. The only real problem was many ball marks unrepaired by players which was annoying, But at least fixable if they were in my line or whatever. Been years since i played any if the other courses in TC. I always expect golf to cost a ton but be superior conditions. This course was an excellent value and did not feel like i missed out by not playing one of the bigger names and saved cash to boot.
