Best Deal in the Country

Brother, can you spare $500? Those five Ben Franklins might be easier to part with if you know they’ll buy you a property at Birchwood Farms and Country Club in Harbor Springs. Yep, you read it right: $500 and up for half- and full-acre lots. What’s more, that property is your key to the club’s world-class tennis courts, pool, fitness center, two stocked trout ponds, 27 holes of golf and the course’s newly renovated (to the tune of $5 million) clubhouse. And, of course, posh little Harbor Springs down the road. Throw in the $10,000 club initiation fee and this is still an unbeatable deal. birchwoodcc.com.
