When Harry Melling decided that Sylvan Resort needed to jump into the golf business, he hired one of the most influential names in golf course architecture –Robert Trent Jones, Sr. When Jones happened upon the perch overlooking the Pigeon River Valley on what today is hole #6, he quipped to Melling and Rick Smith, “all I can see are the tops of trees, you should call this place Treetops.” At once, Sylvan Resort became the world-class four-season resort, Treetops. When the “Masterpiece” opened in 1986, it debuted with the highest slope rating of any course in all of Michigan and remains today as one of the state’s most challenging courses. Of all of the masterful Jones designs across the globe, he referred to his Treetops’ design as his “Masterpiece”.
