Washington Island

I was able to ask the owner’s of Deer Run Golf Course and Resort a few questions the other day about their long time business.  For 20 years, Dan and Trudy Schelitzche have operated the only golf course located on Washington Island.  The nine hole course offers fun and challenge for all levels of golfers, from beginners to pros in a relaxing atmosphere.

Deer Run is a regulation 9 hole golf course with a motel, living quarters, miniature golf and restaurant onsite.  Trudy is most proud of the friendly atmosphere, one that brings repeat customers every year, running the course and motel themselves allows them to be in contact with their patrons, their personal attention goes into the operations everyday as they run and take care of each part of the business.  Customers become friends who keep returning for clean accomodations and great golf.

I agree, the course challenges  my own poor golf skills, the refreshments are always served ice cold and  that everyone should, when they are “North of the Tension Line” come to Deer Run to relax and unwind!
