Founded in 1915, the Escanaba Country Club is the oldest golf course in Delta County.
The course was originally nine holes. A renovation project in 1991 expanded the course to 18 holes. The two nines each have their own characteristics. The front nine is more of a "classical", tree lined design. The back nine is more open, with water coming into play on six holes.
Many consider the Eighteenth hole (pictured on the right), to be one of if not the most difficult finishing hole in the Upper Peninsula. The hole measures 428 yards, with the approach shot all uphill to a green that is some 40 feet above the level of the fairway. Once you find the green, you are challenged by the most severe putting surface on the golf course.
