The Ridge Golf Course, Gaylord, Otsego County


Gaylord, Vanderbilt, Johannesburg, Waters, Elmira

Mountain bike in Aspen Park, check out the local elk, and backpack in the untouched Pigeon River Country.  These are just a few of Otsego County’s favorite things.  Due to its central location along I-75, Otsego County is a business hub for Northeast Michigan. Home to numerous lakes—including the beautiful Otsego Lake, Otsego County has fishing, boating, paddling, and swimming options for every water lover. Although Gaylord is considered a golf mecca, summer is not the only season to enjoy in Northern Michigan.  Snowmobiling is a popular winter activity, along with downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.  Regardless of the season, Gaylord’s swiss alpine look will be sure to charm you. For the full effect, participate in the annual Alpenfest event in July!  Come ready to see the locals sporting dirndls and lederhosen as they celebrate the much-anticipated event.
