OB Sports adds True North Golf Club

OB Sports Golf Management assumed club management duties for True North Golf Club, an exclusive private club located in Harbor Springs, Mich. OB Sports began overseeing all golf and club operations for the facility in late April.

“We’re looking forward to working with such a special golf club,” said Sean Cracraft, Senior Vice President of Operations at OB Sports. “True North is looking to add to an already active membership by showcasing a first class golf course and facilities. We couldn’t be more excited about the future.”

“Our ownership group acquired True North at a time when the course and the Club were emerging from challenging economic times,” said Fritz Duda, Managing Partner of True North Golf Club. “Our commitment to making this a premier club involved finishing various elements over the past few years, including what is now a signature 18th hole, in order to position the Club for future growth.Opened in 2004 and designed by award-winning architect Jim Engh, True North offers four sets of tee boxes that measure anywhere from 7,040 yards from the championship tees, to 4,847 yards from the gold tees. Built to follow the natural terrain of the region, plush fairways and bent grass greens give golf purists a good, but fair test.“During a brief period that the Club allowed public play, Golf Digest rated it number 33 of the Top 100 in 2011,” said Cracraft. “The club is now private and is ranked as one of the top courses in Michigan. With the terrific improvements the ownership group has accomplished these past few years, it will undoubtedly enjoy a future top rating nationally as a private course.”Setting True North apart from other private clubs in the region is hospitality, which is afforded with several golf cottages modeled after Augusta National. These allow stay and play for members and guests, adjacent to a world class short game practice area. The 6,000 square foot clubhouse at True North is home to the golf shop, Compass dining room, a boardroom, and men’s and women’s locker rooms. “There is so much to do and see in Northern Michigan, and True North is in the center of it all,” said Cracraft. “I’ve heard Harbor Springs referred to as the ‘Monterey-Carmel of the Midwest,’ and I would have to agree. The natural beauty in every direction just breathtaking.”
