New Buffalo, Michigan is located in the nation’s Fruit Belt – that means great weather! Cool breezes coming in off Lake Michigan temper the hot summer sun while warm lake breezes take the chill out of the air in spring and fall. The golf season here may not be any longer than elsewhere – but it sure seems like it.

Private Golf Courses

Dunes Golf Course

New Buffalo, Michigan
(269) 469-5539

9 holes (Private Non-Equity) course located on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.

“The best nine holes in America belong to The Dunes Club in New Buffalo, Mich. The course is so low key that I drove past the entrance three times before spotting the gate. The club is Mike Keiser’s original entrée into the world of course development, paving way for places like Bandon Dunes, Cabot Cliffs and Sand Valley.”
