The Cardinal at Saint John’s Resort

Elevate the Game

The first championship course to open to the public in Metro Detroit in over two decades, The Cardinal at Saint John's Resort draws from the golden age of golf course architecture. Under the direction of Raymond Hearn, The Cardinal, along with the Little Cardinal and the Putting Course, incorporates the natural contours of the land and venerable trees to enhance strategic play and scenic beauty. Unique to the region, the resort also features a seven-hole short course and a two-acre putting course for players of all levels. As part of our Humanitarian Hotels initiative, 100% of the profits support global humanitarian efforts, intertwining premier golfing with a commitment to community and sustainability.
