The Greywalls course opened to rave reviews in 2005. Designed by Mike DeVries, the entire course is a natural wonder and a testament to the rugged beauty of the Marquette area. The course takes players through a wild ride and over a diverse but flowing variety of terrain: tumbling fairways, boldly contoured slopes, dramatic elevation changes, rolling and bunkered links land, and breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Superior. It’s a truly unique golf experience that has caught the attention of all the golfing world. GolfWeek named it the #2 course you can play in Michigan, and upon its opening, it was included in the Top Ten Best New Course listings of all the major golf publications. If you’re looking for a truly inspiring and unforgettable golf experience, Greywalls must be on your list.
Course Designer: Mike DeVries
Golf architect Mike DeVries is a craftsman who insists on being personally involved with all aspects of golf course development, including feature shaping of the putting greens and bunkers. By being on-site consistently throughout the construction process, DeVries also enabled himself to continually study the land, reacting to previously unforeseen opportunities and improving upon his original design concepts. This evolutionary process inevitably results in a unique golf course of enduring quality.
A 1987 graduate of Lake Forest College in suburban Chicago (Business Administration), DeVries apprenticed with golf architect, Tom Doak, before going on to the University of Michigan where he earned his Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture in 1994. Following a stint as an on-site design coordinator with golf architect, Tom Fazio, DeVries designed and constructed four new golf courses including the Kingsley Club & Greywalls.

Heritage Course Details
The original nine holes were designed by William Langford and Theodore Moreau in 1926, and the second nine were added by David Gill in 1969. The front nine sprawls out over gently rolling terrain and is notable for its imaginative green complexes and classic beauty. The back nine takes the player into more dramatic slopes offering views of Lake Superior and a challenging finish to a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf.
Course Designers: William B. Langford & Theodore J. Moreau (1926) & David Gill (1969)
Architect William B. Langford, designed the original nine holes at Marquette Golf Club in 1926. Born in 1887 in Austin, Illinois, he suffered from polio as a child and took up golf as part of a rehabilitation program. He was a member of three Yale University NCAA championship golf teams from 1906-1908 and became a golf course architect after gaining a Master’s degree in Mining Engineering at Columbia University. He went on to design over 250 courses with his partner Theodore J. Moreau and became the first honorary member of the Golf Course Architectural Society of America.
The most well-known examples of their work include Lawsonia Links in Green Lake, WI, and Skokie Country Club in IL.
