The course is looking good. We got a lot of trimming done on the fairways and roughs. Poison ivy is just now popping up, but all hogweed looks dead. Hopefully it stays that way! If it does return I'll be digging it up so it does not return. We spent 2 full days on the mountain doing a lot of clearing and only managed 5 ticks between my fiancé and I. Hopefully the regular mowing and maintenance will keep the tick population at bay. We'll be spraying poison ivy next weekend along ... more

ATTENTION!!!: First day of course maintenance for the year will be happening this Saturday, May 19th. If anyone in the area has a push mower to bring or to borrow that would be fantastic!!! The township keeps most areas used for the cross country team mowed for the most part, but some fairways and roughs need regular maintenance. If we can attack the hogweed and rough areas early, it will keep it down throughout the season. Ticks and poison ivy will be maintained this year as well.

Hey, I'm pretty far down south so I can't help, but I just wanted to say: Thank You! I make it out to Silver Mountain once a year or so and it is my favorite course!!! Your work is appreciated!

Sweet! If not, anyone you know have a push mower I could borrow for the weekend lol. My brother said he will give me his, but he lives in GR so I won't have it until I can get down there and get it. I want to mow the rough areas on some holes and hopefully the hogweed before it gets too tall. I ... more

They don't pull the baskets in the winter?

Jake Messner   January 28 at 10:43am

Sometimes they pull 9 and 3 due to the tubing hill, but they haven't the past few years.

The course is in the best shape it's been in years. It'll be fully functional and playable at tournament level next year!

Take US 2 West out of town past Timmy lees pub about 4 miles. It's about when the high way becomes 1 lane. It's on cheeseman rd. It'll be on you right then the course is in your right, right away.

Jeff Novak   June 20, 2017 at 10:08pm

Lehto's Pasties will be on the left hand side right before Cheeseman road

might be a bit overgrown, but enjoy it, its a hidden gem

Jake Messner    May 11, 2017 at 3:20pm

I'll be up here Friday, Saturday and Sunday if anyone wants to throw. I'll be doing any clearing that needs to be done and trying a homemade poison ivy killer on some of the holes that are really bad. As far as ticks go, I recommend tick repellent. The holes on the west side of the course seem to be worse for ticks. The course be looking pretty good after this weekend!

I'm looking for a club that would like to host an event here this summer, most likely unsanctioned for the first go round. I've talked with folks at the City of St. Ignace and they are very intrigued about the idea of improving the course and hosting events at Silver Mountain. Some of them didn't even know there was a course out there. My goal is to only change a few holes to improve the overall play and flow of the course, better signage, trash cans and benches at all holes. The ... more

Hosting a non sanctioned event to show the folks at the City the potential the course has to bring another outdoor recreation opportunity to their community members and tourist. The city commissioner is highly interested and even h

Jake Messner   March 20, 2017 at 3:14pm

Gave me permission to make changes with his approval. Most likely just change hole c pin location and a few tee locations. Eventually get cement pads and all the goods down the road

Kevin Gillhespy   March 20, 2017 at 4:22pm

Lets make it happen.

Jake Messner    February 8, 2017 at 3:57pm

Good news! My girlfriend and I are moving to Traverse City, so we will be much closer to Silver Mountain! After talking with the city commissioner, I think this course is in for some awesome improvements over this next coming season. He is very interested in improving the course and really gave me quite a bit of freedom to make any improvements and changes with his approval. My goal is to have some sort of unsanctioned event out there this coming summer to show him what it can bring to a city al ... more

Jake Messner   February 8, 2017 at 12:43pm

I'll get in touch when I have a plan.

Jake Messner    July 25, 2016 at 4:37pm

Just another quick update with the course. I spoke with the Township Supervisor about the lack of maintance on the course. He was unaware that it was not being taken care of, as he was under the impression that the individual hired to do so was keeping up with it. With that being said, the township hired a new person that is responsible for mowing and taking care of the course. He is a younger man that is starting his own lawn mowing business along with mowing for the township. So, understandabl ... more

Thanks Jake. I was really bummed out that I had to quit my round early, because this course is super when it's in good shape. Glad to hear it's getting the love it deserves.

Phil Britton   July 26, 2016 at 10:44am

Jason McCary   July 28, 2016 at 8:08am

Jake Messner    July 24, 2016 at 5:58am

My girlfriend and I did some serious cleaning on the mountain today. Get up there and check it out! The course is definitely playable! Cleared some fairways and holes that needed some TLC.
