The Thoroughbred Golf Club opened in 1993, with a meticulous design and layout by Arthur Hills to embrace and accentuate the rolling Michigan woods, wetlands, and lakes. The course offers 18 holes with four sets of tees allowing novice and average golfers to enjoy a round, while a 147 slope rating from the tips provides a significant challenge for the more experienced golfer. Arthur Hills boasts “The Thoroughbred is stunning and dramatic, but fair and playable for golfers of all abilities.” The Thoroughbred offers an amazing diversity of features, including the dramatic 425-yard par-four second hole, which wraps around a beautiful cranberry bog and is featured as one of the 18 hardest holes in Michigan on Golf Michigan Live. Adding to the uniqueness of the Thoroughbred is the only course where passing horseback riders have the right of way on all cart paths.
In addition to championship golf, The Double JJ Resort has an endless amount of fun activities to make a perfect getaway for everybody. The resort includes multiple horseback riding venues, three on-site restaurants including the gourmet Sundance Saloon and Steakhouse. A variety of lodging options to choose from including the Lofts Hotel, the Back 40 RV Park, Log cabins and the luxurious Thoroughbred Suites which overlook the golf course. Combined with resort activities such as an indoor and outdoor waterpark, the Double JJ has the perfect mix of activities to entertain anyone who steps on the property.
