    Playing here is like reading a good novel. The first several holes introduce you to the characters: immaculately maintained fairways, velvety smooth and exceptionally fast greens, and the approach shots, seeming moderate in stature, but turning devilishly difficult upon closer examination. On the back nine the plot thickens... and so do the trees. Tight landing areas make even the best shot makers nervous. Club selection and strategy off the tee become as important as the ensuing approach shot. As the finishing holes unveil, the stage is set. However, the verdict is still out. Who will win, the golfer or the course?? In the end, who wins is irrelevant. An experience this good is worth coming back to!

    Among one of the jewels in northern Michigan golf is The Dream.  Opened in 1997, The Dream is literally carved out of 312 acres of hardwoods to form one the most spectacular courses in Michigan.  The course can be reached along Old 76 just three miles west of downtown West Branch.
    This championship-style eighteen hole course is very challenging. Every tee box and green is elevated. There are elevation changes of up to 100 feet. Signature hole is the #5, a 166-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot over water to a medium- sized green. Golf carts are mandatory and included in the greens fees.

    Green Briar features exceptionally large, multiple tee boxes and carpet-like greens. The front nine features water coming into play on several holes, so getting off to a good start is really a challenge. Over 102,000 square feet of greens are available, so expect some mighty lengthy putts at times. Green Briar is a full fledged 19 hole golf course that we think you will find very special.  Why? Because great care was taken in creating a golf course that offers a different look every time you play it.
