Growing up in the Automotive Engineering business in Detroit and visiting northern
Michigan on weekends, thanks to my parents, I decided to move up to Frankfort, Michigan
I'm a dedicated agent that has the knowledge to deal with any type of real estate
situation, especially yours! I have been involved with Benzie County for more than
30 years and look forward to putting my advantages and knowledge to work for you.
I'm also dedicated golfer and member of the Crystal Downs Country Club, here's a
little about them:
Crystal Downs Country Club is a private
country club in Lake Township, Benzie County, near Frankfort, Michigan. Designed
by golf course architects Alister MacKenzie and Perry Maxwell in 1929, the par-70,
6,518 yard course offers views of Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake. The Sleeping Bear
Dunes National Lakeshore lies just to its east.
Despite being consistently ranked among the top courses in the United States (ranked
10th for 2007-08 by Golf Digest) the only tournament of note it has hosted has been
the 1991 U.S. Senior Amateur, due to its isolated location far from population centers
and the corresponding lack of sufficient facilities (lodging, transportation, infrastructure)
needed to accommodate the crowds attracted by major tournament events. Crystal Downs
is considered one of the top golf courses in America, and has drawn many comparisons
to surrounding golf clubs, the difference with Crystal Downs being its isolation.
Thank you....Steve Koppin
