The Woodlands Course at Whittaker

Spend A Day In The Woods

Exciting changes are in the works at The Woodlands Course at Whittaker, one of southwest Michigan’s finest golfing experiences!   Reflecting on the rich history of the golf course, while ushering in a new era of recreation and celebration, the O’Brien family is excited about what’s to come.  Updates to event spaces, plans to add tennis facilities, along with an expansion of the residential community, are just a few of the many new changes taking place.

Immerse yourself in nature as you take on woods, water and sloping fairways—The Woodlands Course is sure to stimulate your senses and your golf game.  Opened in 1996 by the O’Brien family, the Woodlands Course remains a must-stop for visitors to Michigan’s Harbor Country.  Formidable enough to challenge the most competitive golfers yet allowing golfers of all skill levels enjoy a fine golfing experience.


After your round, drink a round at The Captain’s Pour House.  Named for one of the region’s earliest settlers, the menu is traditional but tasteful, incorporating flavors of the area that captivated Captain Whittaker years ago. The Captain’s Pour House offers simple classics and refreshing beverages to savor!
