Good advice from Straycat...negotiate!  We have gotten breakfasts, resort credits, clothing, no resort fees... etc. We have let a resort know what another offers and give them a chance to do better...most want to get you there and will do something for your business!
We stay @ Shanty Creek and  play the following;   Day 1:Legend and Cedar River (arrival) Day 2:Schuss and Legend Day 3; Cedar River and Legend (depart)   We get a package with 2 X  2 bedroom condos with 4 beds, 2 baths and a kitchen in each condo. Nothing overly fancy...just the basics! The reservations office does an awesome job working out pricing for various days and number of rounds.   Arriving around early-mid September (11th I think this year) and the weather...
Seems a little cold that time of year.  If you are heading north try Shanty Creek.  We have made two trips there and plan on returning for our third annual this year. The Legend and Cedar River courses are great and you can play Schuss as well. Stay in the main village and shuttle in to Bellaire for dinner and drinks!

#6 on Jones Masterpiece @ Treetops Resort in Gaylord MI.  Even better in the fall when the leaves are changing!

Thanks...will check it out!!!
Made the trip to Treetops back in September 2011 and you won`t be disappointed!!  We stayed in condos on the North part of the resort and the only drawback was the drive to the main property and into Gaylord to eat!   My group felt that the Fazio course was easily the best followed by the Jones Masterpiece.  We were not big fans of the two Smith courses, especially the Tradition...I would have played the Fazio again instead!   Threetops was fun, mostly due to...
Have been to both Shanty Creek and Treetops...now looking at another destination for early September 2013.  Want to play great courses with little or no driving required once the group checks in. Will look into all suggestions!
