    My husand and I played Treetops - Premier Course.
    It is the only golf course in Michigan designed by famed architect, Tom Fazio. The course has rolling terrain, undulating greens, elevation changes with a par-3 high above the postage stamp green. The facilities and course are in excellent condition plenty of demands and challenges. The greens were especially challenging. We did not stay at there so can only recommend the course. Also played Threetops the Par-3 course having seen the Pros play it on TV. Fun and unbelievable! It is a blast to play and SO hard to score on. Any ball not on the green is usually lost. If you play at Treetops be sure to include playing Threetops.

    My husband and I played the Tribute Course at Otsego Club. A very nice course to play with challenge of heather, hillsides and hazards. Some scenic holes. Note: the course doesn't return to the clubhouse and only has a port-a-potty and limited refreshments while we were playing. They do have a good restaurant. We enjoyed our lunch before golf.

    The town of Gaylord is located in North Central Michigan, has a population of over 4000, and is the county seat of Otsego County. The town was settled in 1874 by the Jackson, Lansing & Saginaw Railroad and named for Augustine Smith Gaylord a lawyer for the company. Gaylord started the Saginaw School System in 1851, became a lawyer in 1856, was appointed to the Michigan House of representatives in 1862, and served as an attorney in the Department of the Interior under President Theodore Roosevelt from 1875 until his death in 1877.

    There was a Mexican Restaurant near my hotel so I decided to try it. It was La Senorita. The building had the appropriate Swiss Chalet style (which looked strange for a Mexican Restaurant) and the sign has a senorita dancing in a full skirt. Inside the decor was bright and colorful with baskets, colored lights, lanterns, and a nice mural. I ordered my usual; an Enchilada Platter. The food was very good; the service was just okay. I opted not to try the Margaritas. The bar appeared to be closed.

    Favorite Dish: The Enchilada Platter was above average, especially the Cheese Enchilada.

    Easy Street is attached to the Best Western Alpine Inn. It has big screen TVs tuned to sports channels and the usual neon, beer posters, sports posters, etc. The rum and coke was strong and average priced. This bar appeared to be very popular with some locals; unfortunately they were all friends with he girl behind the bar and she was so busy talking to them I never got a chance to order a second drink. I finally gave up. May try a differnt place next time I am in Gaylord.

    Dress Code: Casual.
