Designed in 1992 by golf architect Dick Nugent, The Fortress reflects characteristics of golf's early Scottish origins. Fescue-covered mounds reveal well-guarded, sectioned greens. Bent-grass tees, greens and fairways surround 75 bunkers. Each of the huge greens average 7,500 square feet. The Fortress encompasses 6,813 yards of formidable play on an 18-hole, par 72 course.
Players can warm up on the putting green, the chipping green with practice bunker and the target-oriented driving range. Special events, tournaments, clinics and junior programs are scheduled throughout the season. The Fortress is located just 435 yards from the front porch of Zehnder’s Restaurant in downtown Frankenmuth and has been recognized as one of Michigan’s top golf courses.
