    Escanaba Country Club

    Founded in 1915, the Escanaba Country Club is the oldest 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.
