A Note From The General Manager:


I hope you are all staying healthy & enjoying the summer season.

Michigan is facing many struggles due to the Covid – 19 Pandemic. Our Community & operations will also face many challenges to comply with the Michigan State regulations and Health Department guidelines.   Our Pines Golf Course and Jack Pine grill are open and operating. Check out our website or call the golf pro shop (989-939-8911) for a tee time and get outside and enjoy our beautiful golf course.

Our "Inn the Woods" restaurant is open Wednesday - Sunday for dine in or carry out service.  Guests & staff must wear face masks in the building.   Dining in will be a different experience than in the past but we are committed to serving great food and looking forward to putting the "Inn the Woods" restaurant on the map again. We have assembled a great team in the kitchen and I am pleased to announce that our new chef is Darrell Callison.   Darrell has been a part-time employee for many years and is now committed to serving fresh, local and tasty food.  Adam Popp is our talented & dedicated sous chef.    John Kaye is also back on our team!  John is extremely excited to return to this community and bring his vast knowledge and creativity to the team.  Kyle Malczyk is the front of the house manager and Kyle is ready to meet & greet you and make sure you have a great experience.   Inn the Woods restaurant is open for business Wednesdays thru Sunday and is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Happy Hour is 4pm – 6pm!  Check out our new menu which is loaded with fresh local items. Outdoor seating is available (weather permitting).

The outdoor pool is open (limited capacity due to COVID).  Please be considerate and limit your time at the pool so all can enjoy. We are mandated to operate under the limitation of the Heath Department Covid-19 rules. 50% capacity and 6 foot social distancing is required. The hours of the pool are Monday – Tuesday 9 am until 8 pm and  Wednesday – Sunday 9 am until 9 pm. ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE BE A THOUGHTFUL NEIGHBOR AND LIMIT YOUR TIME AT THE POOL SO ALL MEMBERS CAN ENJOY:) The indoor sauna is closed due to state regulations.

Opal Lake Park is open. Park hours are posted ~ 11 am until 7 pm. If the gate is locked, the park is closed. It is trespassing if you “jump the fence” and you may be prosecuted so please comply with the park hours as posted.  Opal Lake Park is governed by rules and regulations that date back to 1978. Please abide by the rules and regulations that are posted at the park and on this website. Kayaks and small vessels are prohibited from launching at the park so please use the public access on the lake.


Get outside and enjoy the beautiful days ahead.
