It may be pouring down rain but that didn’t stop our staff from being first to play putt putt on Lake Michigan Camp’s new 9 hole putt putt course designed and built by Tony & Linda Kusnier.

Campers are going to love this new addition with special LMC&R themed holes including the 9th hole Dean’s Cabin!

Thank you Tony & Linda for loving us so well!
