New Owners of Bahle Farms Golf Course

Bahle Farms Golf Course is a 200-acre golf course that opened in 1999. It was formerly owned by members of the Bahle family, long-time residents of the Suttons Bay Area. The Bahle Family owns and operates several other local businesses, such as Bahle’s clothing store which has been open since 1876.

After 20 years of operation, Bahle Farms Golf Course sold to father-son duo Mark and Crosley Duckmann on June 9, 2021.

As the new owners, we are very excited to take over the next generation of breathtaking views and challenging golf at Bahle Farms Golf Course.

Our motto is simple. We don’t sell golf, we sell a good time on a golf course. While you’re out here, we want you to enjoy your setting, and have the time of your life. It’s pretty easy to do here in Pure Michigan.

Here’s to good times and great golf.
