A Michigan resort with a rare codesign by Nicklaus-Muirhead

WHAT Bay Valley Hotel & Resort

WHERE Bay City, Mich.

COST $9 million

HOOK In 1973 Nicklaus codesigned the 6,666-yard course with Desmond Muirhead. The purchase price includes a 470-acre resort with a conference center and 145 rooms.

FRINGE BENEFIT How's this for a cultural connection: The Scottish pop band the Bay City Rollers supposedly got its name by throwing a dart at a U.S. map. It hit Bay City, which also happens to be the hometown of Louise Veronica Ciccone, better known as Madonna.
