We welcome you to the Fawn Crest Golf Course web page.

We purchased this golf course in April 2007 from Ronald Webber.  He designed and built this beautiful golf course out of the National Manistee National Forest in 1985. It was owned and run by his family until 2007.

Both Lee and I grew up in the Ovid-Elsie Michigan area. Lee discovered this course when he was here steel head fishing. Along with the fish he caught, this golf course caught his attention. Purchasing this golf course was a big decision and after some ups and downs we were the NEW owners of  Fawn Crest Golf Course. We left the decision in God’s hands, so it must have been meant to be!! 

The course is run by Lee and his son Jeremiah. I visit on the weekends because I am still working as a medical coding specialist in Lansing, MI. We have four children, four grand children, and many sisters and brothers whom all encouraged us and helped us with this life changing event. 

Fawn Crest Golf Course is a beautiful, peaceful, and serene nine hole, 32 par golf course. It is surrounded by the beauty of oak and maple trees; it is nature at its best.  

We are - family orientated and we invite you to come and spend quality time with your family and friends- and enjoy the wonders of nature within the Manistee National Forest.

We have had great support from the local community and the visitors. People are happy  that we are here and want to see us stay and grow.  That is a very good feeling. 

We have built a temporary club house just north of the previous site.  We have added a sand trap on the right side of hole number five which makes it more of a challenge since the pond is close by. As of 2009 have added a sand trap  on number one and we are in the process of extending hole number seven. As our business grows, we hope to add other changes to compliment the character of this beautiful course.

We hope all who come to Fawn Crest will have an enjoyable experience and will want to come back!  Without our customer’s- we could not exist.
