If you haven’t heard of Kingsley Club, you aren’t alone, but you’re definitely missing out. The place is special. Not like a massive waterfall inside the clubhouse special—actually special. Could you make that argument about a lot of courses? Sure, but this one is different. From the moment you roll down the long dirt road to its entrance, a very simplistic sign awaits you: “The Kingsley Club, Members & Guest”, a very telling sign of what’s to come.
Located 15 minutes South of Traverse City, Michigan—it’s truly a hidden gem waiting to be uncovered. But the Members don’t care who knows about it—it’s part of the mystique. It’s part of what makes this place so great. A place this pure can’t stay hidden for long.
What makes this place so different? It’s pure and utterly good golf. No massive club house, no pool, no tennis courts— heck, no tee times—just great golf. It has a vastly different vibe from other ‘exclusive clubs’.
From the opening tee shot to the closing putt, The King is as pure as it gets—rolling hills, architecturally pleasing design, firm conditions, tough greens and the ability to play multiple (and VERY different) shots on every single hole. It’s truly a playground for the ardent golfer.
The King simply never gets old—and the more you play it, the more you fall in love with it, the more you understand it, and the more you respect the masterpiece that sits in the middle of nowhere Michigan. We’ve been lucky enough to play it a few times and it always leaves us wanting more. Here’s a very brief overview of the course.
Growing up we loved spending our Summers going 'Up North" on unforgettable golf adventures ... Something about Northern Michigan's pure & serene beauty and seemingly endless array of great tracks to play, stole our hearts from a young age. So, we sought to embody our Up North roots and pay ode to the beautiful North Coast that we've been lucky enough to call home most Summers.
North Coast was born from a vision over two years ago. It was during an Up North golf trip to Northern Michigan. We all had different gloves on and not one of them stood out to us. They were bland, boring, half-ripped and frankly, didn't fit our style. Not only that, but we all seemed to agree that we didn't love the way our gloves felt on our hand. We wanted to look and feel good on the course from head to toe and we knew we weren't the only ones. So, we set out to create our own gloves from the ground up with a simple mission: create high-quality and stylish golf gloves that are beyond comfortable to wear and feel silky smooth on any hand. Two years later, we've finally arrived and we're stoked to release our gloves to all of you. Now grab your sticks & Go Play Golf.
