The county's summer tourism industry is driven by the pastime, with hotels filling and courses bustling as soon as warm weather creeps up and extending well into the fall. Paul Beachnau, executive director of the Gaylord Area Convention and Tourism Bureau, says golf brings in $17 million in greens and range fees and food and beverage sales to Otsego County. At least 10 Gaylord hotels also have convention centers, which in turn brings a steady flow of visitors to the town's Alpine-themed downtown shopping district. Otsego Club was purchased by Osprey Recreational Properties and The Lake has also changed owners and is now known as Mountain Lake Golf Course.

Otsego Club has renovated its main lodge and many rooms and Mountain Lake has rebuilt four greens and done some clubhouse improvements after being closed for business last year. As the Saudi Arabian city of Mecca is the center of the Muslim faith, the Alpine Village's summer economy centers largely on golf. Owens said the resort is planning on adding a fifth course, Sanctuary, in the near future, but no date is yet set. Michaywe' has undergone $1 million in renovations to improve cart paths, greens, the sprinkler system, tee boxes and the clubhouse.
